What’s the strategy?
The Canadian Concentrated Value Equity (Laketon) portfolio invests primarily in large-cap Canadian companies priced below their intrinsic value given their long-term opportunities for growth.
The portfolio manager applies a deep fundamental analysis approach to stock selection. Using dynamic and proprietary financial models along with deep dive analysis into companies, the portfolio manager seeks to capture opportunities and manage risks that are mispriced or not yet priced into the market.
The portfolio manager has the flexibility to invest in U.S. stocks within specified limits to add diversification and seek out attractive opportunities often not available in the Canadian market.
Typical portfolio characteristics include lower valuation, higher quality, and stronger earnings prospects than the broad Canadian market as measured by the S&P/TSX Composite Index.
This strategy seeks out under-valued companies that are well-managed with strong balance sheets and have the potential to achieve long-term capital appreciation.
Why invest in this portfolio strategy?
Ideal for investors seeking exposure to high quality Canadian equities that may have been overlooked by the market and offer long-term opportunities for growth.
The Canadian Concentrated Value Equity (Laketon) portfolio strategy offers Canadian equity exposure in a broadly diversified portfolio across sectors.
It’s a concentrated portfolio of high quality companies added to the portfolio at attractive values and strong potential for capital appreciation
