Franklin Bissett Canadian Government Bond Fund

Investment Objective and Strategy

The fund seeks current income, liquidity and modest capital appreciation by investing primarily in bonds issued by Canadian federal, provincial and municipal governments and government agencies, including mortgage-backed securities and real return bonds.

Diversification. Low or no correlation between Canadian government bonds and other fixed income and equity securities makes them an ideal choice for managing portfolio risk.

Steady Flow of Income. Despite global market volatility and lower government yields across developed economies, Canadian government bonds have continued to provide competitive yields over the past 10 years.

Depth and breadth of research. In a low government bonds yield environment, our extensive research and fully-integrated risk management approach can help reduce the risk of market pitfalls and benefit from market dislocations.
