Purpose Investments Inc. (“Purpose Investments” or “Purpose”) is pleased to announce today that, not withstanding its press release on June 24 regarding the termination of Purpose Canadian Financial Income Fund (TSX ticker: BNC) (the “Fund”), it will continue to run the Fund according to its current strategy indefinitely.
Given the current investment climate, Purpose believes the Fund’s strategy provides an optimal means of exposure to the Canadian financial sector, which should enable it to grow the Fund’s assets under management. The Fund provides broadly diversified exposure to Canada’s six largest banks and four largest insurers, combined with enhanced yield-generating properties due to its strategy of partially overwriting the portfolio with covered calls.
