Philosophy & Process

We aim to invest in high quality companies at reasonable prices. We focus on those businesses that, as a result of their distinct competitive advantages, are able to grow their future earnings with little or no dependence on financial leverage or external factors. Our lengthy and independent due diligence process is designed to uncover companies with positive and reinforcing corporate cultures – those that will continuously look to reinvest in their competitive advantage to help ensure dominance long into the future. Preservation of capital is the hallmark of Ivy style and we believe that protecting on the downside and participating enough on the upside will lead to above-average compound returns over a full market cycle. By taking a long-term view and focusing on fundamental bottom-up analysis, the Ivy style aims to afford one with the conviction to act counter-cyclically, potentially adding value to the portfolio over time.

Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees, and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the prospectus before investing. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns as of March 31, 2017 including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and does not take into account sales, redemption, distribution, or optional charges or income taxes payable by any security holder that would have reduced returns. Mutual funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.

Morningstar Star Ratings reflect performance of Series F units as of March 31, 2017 and are subject to change monthly. The ratings are an objective, quantitative measure of a fund’s historical risk-adjusted performance relative to other funds in its category. Only funds with at least a three-year track record are considered. The overall star rating for a fund is a weighted combination calculated from a fund’s 3, 5, and 10-year returns, as available, measured against the 91-day Treasury bill and peer group returns. A fund can only be rated if there are a sufficient number of funds in its peer group to allow comparison for at least three years. If a fund scores in the top 10% of its fund category, it gets 5 stars; if it falls in the next 22.5%, it receives 4 stars; a place in the middle 35% earns a fund 3 stars; those in the next 22.5% receive 2 stars; and the lowest 10% receive 1 star. For more details on the calculation of Morningstar Star Ratings, see www.morningstar.ca.

The Fundata FundGrade A+ Awards are presented annually to Canadian investment funds that achieve consistently high FundGrade scores through an entire calendar year. In 2016, 225 top-performing Canadian mutual funds, exchange traded funds, and segregated funds from 56 fund companies were awarded a FundGrade A+ Rating.  FundGrade A+ is a supplemental calculation to the FundGrade ratings and is performed at the end of each calendar year. Eligible funds must have received a FundGrade rating every month in the previous year. FundGrade A+ uses a “GPA-style” calculation, where monthly FundGrades from “A” to “E” receive scores from 4 to 0, respectively. A fund’s average score for the year determines its GPA. Any fund with a GPA of 3.5 or greater is awarded an A+ rating.
