Investment Strategy

In order to achieve its investment strategy objectives, the Manager systematically creates a broadly diversified portfolio of wealth-creating companies with excellent management teams bought at discounts to their intrinsic values. The Manager employs a highly disciplined, research-driven, bottom-up process and long-term holding period to allow for investor recognition or corporate growth, and to minimize transaction costs.

The Fund’s expenses are made up of the management fee and operating expenses. These costs comprise the Fund’s MER. The Fund’s annual management fee is 1.15% of the Fund’s value. Because this fund is new, its operating expenses are relatively large in comparison to the fund’s assets. The actual MER for the fund was 1.49% however the management of Mawer has committed to subsidize the operating expenses of the Fund from its inception so that the MER is no more than 1.45%. Management plans to review the subsidy periodically with the intent to remove the subsidy once the MER of the Fund has stabilized from asset growth at approximately 1.45%. After the subsidized period ends the actual MER for the Fund may be higher than 1.45%.

†† Mawer Fund returns are calculated after management fees and operating expenses have been deducted. In comparison, index returns do not incur management fees or operating expenses.

Performance returns for the Mawer Mutual Funds are calculated by Mawer Investment Management Ltd. These returns are historical simple returns for the 1 year period and are annualized compounded total returns for periods after 1 year. They include changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns.
