Manulife Canadian Focused Fund

Managed by the Manulife Value Equity Team, all companies are viewed under the same fundamental proprietary lens, using a scalable and repeatable process driven by the team's fundamental beliefs unchanged since the team's founding in 1996.

The team's focus is on creating a high returning conglomerate portfolio consisting of diversified businesses to ensure that revenue and earnings come from many different sources. As a result, no single event will have a large negative impact on the portfolio.

The  fund is carefully constructed using a bottom up, style agnostic approach focusing on companies which in aggregate have exhibited high levels of profitability across several uncorrelated businesses, minimal financial leverage and attractive valuations.
