Stone Asset Management Limited Announces Securityholder Approval of Changes to Two Mutual Funds
Toronto (July 11, 2017) – Stone Asset Management Limited (“SAM”), the investment fund manager and portfolio manager of Stone Global Balanced Fund and Stone Growth Fund (the “Funds”), today announced that securityholders of the Funds have approved changes to the Funds’ fundamental investment objectives. A summary of the changes is as follows:
|Fund name||Current investment objective||New investment objective|
|Stone Global Balanced Fund||To provide superior investment returns combined with a steady stream of current income by investing primarily in Canadian equity and fixed-income securities.||To provide investors access to a global balanced fund seeking capital appreciation and a steady stream of current income.|
|Stone & Co. Flagship
Stock Fund Canada
|To provide superior investment returns through capital growth by investing primarily in Canadian equity securities. Current income is a secondary objective.||To provide investors exposure to North American equity securities seeking long-term capital appreciation.|
The changes are expected to provide greater diversification and a wider range of investment opportunities for the two Funds by expanding the investment horizons beyond a weighting primarily in securities of Canadian issuers. No changes were made to the investment time horizon of the Funds.
The change in investment objectives will be effective on or about August 25, 2017, in conjunction with the renewal of the Funds’ simplified prospectus and annual information form. Full particulars of the changes are outlined in a management circular dated June 10, 2017 which is available on SEDAR.
