CIBC AM uses a variety of tools in conducting methods of analysis and investment strategies for the various asset classes that they manage. These methods of analysis and strategies are generally designed for long term investing. The International Equity Portfolio Strategy aims to provide long-term returns through capital appreciation by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of equity securities of foreign companies located in Europe, the Far East, and the Pacific Basin. Their investment process is focused on bottom-up security selection. CIBC AM seeks to invest in companies that are global or regional leaders in their respective industries and whose earnings growth rate is consistently greater than that of the global economy. They focus mainly on large capitalization companies in sectors exhibiting long-term, predictable, above-average volume growth. The Canadian Fixed Income Portfolio Strategy aims to generate income while attempting to preserve capital by investing primarily in bonds, debentures, and other debt instruments of Canadian governments and corporations. The strategy may invest in securities of foreign issuers where permitted. Fundamental macroeconomic research forms the basis for portfolio construction utilizing top down strategies such as duration, sector allocation, and yield curve positioning. Portfolio Managers rely on a dedicated in-house Credit Research team responsible for analyzing the credit of every corporate issuer that are invested in the money market and active bond portfolios. The Currency Management Strategy offers both passive and active currency management. The investment objective of passive currency management strategies is to hedge some or all of the foreign currency exposure back to a base currency.

HSBC Investments Canada (HSBC Canada) employs a team approach to fund management. Once asset allocation is determined, the firm utilizes a blended top-down, bottom-up approach to sector weighting and individual security selection. Their investment style emphasizes broad economic factors and individual security selection. HSBC Canada evaluates the outlook for the major equity and bond markets, along with economic activity and currencies. This economic overview provides the basis for all of the firm's investment policies and decisions. HSBC Canada combines the results of their global economic overview with further regional analysis to determine views on factors such as the strength of the economy, direction of interest rates, level of corporate earnings growth and relative valuation of bond and stock prices. The firm then compares the relative attractiveness of different asset classes and markets over the short and longer term to develop asset mix targets that are consistent with portfolio constraints. In addition, given the cyclical nature of Canada's resource-based economy, the firm constantly monitors and interprets a variety of macroeconomic factors that influence industry sectors and companies within those industries. These factors include interest rates, commodity prices, inventory levels and money supply.
