CC&L Money Market

Investment Objective

  • Generate returns equal to the return of the benchmark, FTSE Canada 91 Day T-Bill Index, per annum over a market cycle.
  • Maximize current income while preserving the capital value of the Fund and maintaining adequate liquidity.


  • Provides a higher return than cash.
  • Capital preservation.

Investment Philosophy

  • Economic fundamentals drive markets.
  • Better decisions result when the evaluation of fundamental information is validated through research that proves the link between the data and movements in the market.
  • Research should be conducted continuously in order to allow the process to evolve with capital markets.
  • Process diversification yields superior risk-adjusted returns.

Investment Process

  • Top-down, fundamentally based approach: In-depth macro-economically driven analysis validated by a disciplined research process resulting in interest rate and sector exposures.
  • Robust risk management: Proprietary fundamental process supported by quantitative tools requiring an ongoing dedicated research effort.
  • Comprehensive credit analysis: Top down industry analysis and a bottom up company research  that incorporates factors such as operating factors, financial profile and quality of management.
  • Responsive security selection: Spread forecast continuously updated for a wide universe of industries and companies.

Portfolio Construction & Risk Management

  • Portfolio construction emphasizes the design of an optimal risk/reward structure within the context of a predefined risk budget.
  • The team looks to add value in three broad areas: interest rate forecast, sector allocation and security selection.
  • In our risk budgeting process which is both fundamental and qualitative, we determine which strategies have the greatest opportunity and set a target risk for each.
  • Once the decision is made in respect of purchase/sale candidates, the portfolio construction team seeks out opportunities to capitalize on price differences between the securities of a given issuer.
