Strategic Energy Fund

Strategic Energy Fund is an investment trust that seeks to provide unitholders with superior rates of return and income through a diversification strategy focused primarily on investment opportunities in the Canadian energy sector. The Fund invests in established companies, early-stage energy companies and, to a lesser extent, special energy issuers, each with prospects for high growth in the near to medium term and the potential for long-term capital appreciation.

The Fund's investments in established companies, including energy royalty and income trusts, are made with a view to generate sufficient income to permit the Fund to make monthly cash distributions to unitholders.

Investments in early-stage energy companies are focused on both private and public issuers with strong, experienced management teams that have proven track records of enhancing shareholder value and successfully executing exit strategies. As well, the Fund may invest in undervalued issuers where Sentry Select Capital Corp. ("Sentry Select"), the investment advisor to the Fund, believes that capital appreciation can be realized.

Trading information

The Fund's units trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") under the symbol SEF.UN.
