CALGARY, Alberta, June 10, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Canoe Financial LP (“Canoe Financial”) today announced unitholder approval to proceed with changes to Canoe Premium Income Fund (the “Fund”) as previously announced on March 28, 2024. Canoe Financial also announced a change in sub-advisor for Canoe Global Income Fund and Canoe Global Income Portfolio Class (collectively, “Global Income Funds”).

Changes to Canoe Premium Income Fund

Effective after the close of business on or about June 20, 2024, the investment objective of Canoe Premium Income Fund will be to generate income and long-term capital growth by primarily writing put options, investing in equity securities, and/or writing call options on these equities. The Fund will seek to achieve its objectives by primarily writing cash covered put options on North American equities, as well as investing in a diversified portfolio of North American equities, writing covered calls, and employing other options strategies.
To better align with the new investment objective:

  • The Fund will be renamed Canoe Premium Yield Fund; and

  • The Fund’s investment strategies will have a greater focus on generating premiums from writing put options.

The Fund will continue to be managed by Steve DiGregorio, Vice President & Portfolio Manager, and the Fund’s risk rating will remain low/medium. Full details of changes to the Fund can be found in a management information circular available on
