The Funds investment objectives are now to provide unitholders with a stable stream of quarterly cash distributions targeted to be 7.5% per annum of the net asset value of the Fund and to return the net asset value per unit as of the date the Special Resolution was adopted upon termination of the Fund on December 31, 2010. The Fund intends to achieve its investment objectives by investing in a portfolio consisting of the six largest Canadian banks and the four largest Canadian life insurance companies by market capitalization.

To generate additional returns above the dividend income earned on the portfolio the Fund may from time to time, write covered call options in respect of all or part of the securities in its portfolio. In addition, the Fund may write cash covered put options in respect of securities in which it is permitted to invest.
