Philosophy & Process

The Mackenzie Resource team aims to provide above-average capital appreciation from equity investments in natural resource companies. We believe that a company’s ability to generate Sustainable Free Cash Flow over a full pricing cycle combined with management’s acumen in allocating capital wisely are key drivers of long-term value creation within natural resource sectors. We apply a Sustainable Free Cash Flow focused approach to investing with a disciplined quantitative risk management overlay for portfolio construction techniques. Our Portfolio Managers bring comprehensive insight from their time in the resource industry, as well as over 15 years in investment management.

The Lipper Fund Awards are based on the Lipper Ratings for Consistent Return, which is a risk-adjusted performance measure calculated over 36, 60 and 120 month periods. The highest 20% of funds in each category are named Lipper Leaders for Consistent Return and receive a score of 5, the next 20% receive a score of 4, the middle 20% are scored 3, the next 20% are scored 2 and the lowest 20% are scored 1. The highest Lipper Leader for Consistent Return in each category wins the Lipper Fund Award. Lipper Leader ratings change monthly.
