Sub-advised by Landry Investment Management, HMA will seek long-term returns by providing exposure to selected global asset classes on a risk-adjusted basis, primarily through investments in ETFs. Markets the portfolio can invest in include Canadian and U.S. equities, emerging market equities, U.S. and Canadian bonds, real estate investment trusts, and gold.
