TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 10, 2017) - Investors and investment advisors are invited to listen to an update on Taylor North American Equity Opportunities Fund (TSX:TOF.UN) (the "Fund") by David Taylor of Taylor Asset Management. A link to the update recorded on March 9, 2017 has been posted to the Brompton Funds' website at the following link:
Taylor Asset Management employs a value-driven investment strategy to construct a portfolio that seeks to balance long-term capital growth with capital preservation and will invest opportunistically in equity and equity related securities of issuers that they believe are fundamentally sound and are trading at a discount to their intrinsic value. The Fund currently has approximately 48% of the portfolio allocated to Canadian equities with the balance allocated to US and Non-North American equities. The portfolio can be biased to either country depending on which market David believes offers the most attractive valuations. In addition, the Fund may invest up to 25% of the portfolio in securities listed outside of North America in cases where the portfolio manager believes attractive opportunities exist or for purposes of diversification.
Since inception on June 19, 2012, through to February 28, 2017, TOF.UN has generated a return of 12.7% per annum(1), which is comprised of an increase in the NAV of the fund of $3.60 to $12.92(2) and total cash distributions of $2.80.
