Renaissance Canadian Core Value Fund

Advisor Essentials Meeting clients’ needs for long-term growth from both Canadian and global companies.

Value holdings… with solid upside potential Canada is home to a number of companies that supply products and services to countries around the globe. These larger companies are often recognized as leaders in their field. Canada is also home to a number of dynamic mid-sized companies with excellent growth potential. The Renaissance Canadian Core Value Fund offers investors exposure to a range of these companies combined with exposure to global opportunities. The result is a flexible Canadian equity fund, focusing on undervalued companies generating solid earnings through all economic climates; and combines this with the ability to access global deep-value opportunities via the management expertise of Wintergreen Advisers. Wintergreen’s high conviction, ‘go-anywhere’ deep value approach will provide diversification through the inclusion of global companies which generate cash, have excellent management and are available at a compelling price.
