Investment Strategies

  • Cidel seeks to invest in a broadly diversified portfolio of fixed income investments and equity securities of companies with attractive cash flow and valuation profiles, a track record of returning rising levels of cash flow to securityholders with a conservative bias.
  • Cidel seeks to invest in companies with quality management, a practice of increasing dividends or share buybacks, and identifiable growth opportunities.
  • Cidel utilizes a blend of interest rate anticipation, yield curve management, sector allocation, and credit analysis to reduce volatility and generate income and more consistent returns with a view to meeting the Fund’s investment objectives.
  • For the equity securities component, Cidel follows a security selection process consisting of company screening, bottom up fundamental research/valuation and a final decision making phase based on perceived margin of safety and portfolio and risk management considerations.
  • For the fixed income component, Cidel seeks to be diversified by industry sectors, types of issues, as well as individual issuers.

Effective on or about December 9, 2016, the NexGen Canadian Diversified Income Funds were merged into the Natixis Strategic Balanced Funds.

Effective on or about October 17, 2016, the portfolio manager for the NexGen Turtle Canadian Balanced Funds was changed to Cidel Asset Management Inc. and the funds were renamed Natixis Strategic Balanced Registered Fund and Natixis Strategic Balanced Tax Managed Fund. The investment strategies of the NexGen Turtle Canadian Balanced Funds were changed on this date (indirectly in the case of NexGen Turtle Canadian Balanced Registered Fund) to reflect the investment style of Cidel and to provide for increased flexibility in achieving their investment objectives. Portfolio allocations and performance measurement periods prior to this date are reflective of the previous investment strategy.
