Defined Preservation 50 Fund*

Defined Preservation 50 Fund Goal
Intended to deliver an ETF’s positive price appreciation and insulate against its price declines.

Who should consider a Defined Preservation 50 Fund?

“I know I need to be in equities for long-term, but I’d like to reduce potential losses.”

“I am going to stay in cash until there is a better time to buy into the stock market.”

“I will be spending from my portfolio so it’s important that I reduce the impact of losses.”

How does a Defined Preservation 50 Fund work?

The fund provides exposure to a broad-based market ETF over a fixed period of time, usually ranging from two to five years.

At the end of the period, if the ETF’s price has appreciated, the investor receives that return. If the ETF has generated a negative return, the investor is subject to 50% of the decline.
