Strategic Energy Fund

Strategic Energy Fund is an investment trust that seeks to provide unitholders with superior rates of return through a diversification strategy focused on investment opportunities within the Canadian energy sector.

The Fund's investments in established companies, including energy royalty and income trusts, are made with a view to generating 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.
