About the GFD Fund
Foyston is pleased to offer you an investment program designed specifically to help you generate a high and stable level of income while prudently growing your capital to enable you to continue to care for your cemetery for generations to come.
The GFD - Foyston Care & Maintenance Income Fund (the "GFD Fund") was designed specifically for you to invest the money you have set aside to care for your cemetery.
The GFD Fund has three primary investment objectives:
- to ensure long-term capital preservation
- to minimize volatility
- to generate income to enable your cemetery to meet its long-term spending needs
Inside the GFD Fund
To achieve its objectives (income stability, capital preservation, and limiting volatility), the GFD Fund will invest in a diversified mix of bonds, common shares, mortgage securities, and preferred shares. Each of these asset classes will be actively managed by the Foyston investment teams, who will adjust the portfolio over time to reflect the changing investment landscape.
Income generated in the GFD Fund will be transferred to a separate income account on a monthly basis and paid to you at the end of each quarter. Temporary income account balances will be directed to the FGP Money Market Fund, which invests very conservatively in short-term government and corporate bonds with terms of one year or less.
