Bloom first uses a conservative, fundamental, "top down" investment approach that assesses macro factors, such as economic conditions, business factors, commodity prices, interest rates and credit ratings. Bloom then reviews the relative valuation and volatility of each asset class, as well as the historical and anticipated correlation and co-variance relationship between such asset classes, to determine an optimal asset allocation mix. As a result, Bloom takes a lower risk approach to investment, de-levering and carrying cash balances if he believes that equity markets are overvalued and generally has a lower allocation to the volatile oil and gas trust sector.
A "bottom up" , fundamental investment approach is then employed to select individual security holdings, analyzing each company's business, prospects and management to determine whether it is undervalued or has growth potential. Bloom capitalizes on this selective acquisition strategy through a "buy and hold" philosophy.

Annually on the second last business day of November, provided units are tendered by the last business day of October. Units may be redeemed at the option of the unitholders by tendering units of the Fund by the last business day of October for redemption on the second last business day of November ("Redemption Valuation Date"). Redemption of tendered units will be settled based on net asset value per unit on the Redemption Valuation Date, less associated costs of the redemption, including brokerage costs. Units tendered for redemption will be redeemed effective the Redemption Valuation Date and will be settled on or before the tenth business day of December, subject to the Manager's right to suspend redemptions in certain circumstances. For purposes of calculating the net asset value per unit, the value of the securities comprising the portfolio will be equal to the weighted average trading price of such securities over the last three business days of November.
