This fund's objective is to obtain long-term total return through a prudent balance of income and capital appreciation. It invests primarily in equity and equity-related securities of mid- to large-capitalization Canadian companies and fixed income securities issued by Canadian governments and companies. The proportion of the fund's assets invested in equity and fixed income securities may vary according to market conditions. Any change to the investment objective must be approved by a majority of votes cast at a meeting of unitholders held for that reason.

As at March 31, 2013
The Canadian market, after years of being a shining star on the global stock scene has in recent times lost its lustre. Energy companies together with materials companies currently make up over 40% of the S&P/TSX Composite Index today. At Harbour, we build our portfolios from the bottom up on a company-by-company basis, and they can look quite different from the averages.
In our domestic portfolios, companies that contributed meaningfully to positive results were Abbvie (formerly part of Abbott Labs), CN Rail, Diageo, Discover Financial, Dundee, and Tim Hortons. Notable detractors were all commodity-related companies and included Barrick Gold, BHP Billiton, and Suncor Energy.
In our foreign portfolios, strong share price appreciation in recent months has boosted valuations of a number of our holdings and in several names we took advantage of this strength to adjust weightings downward. We eliminated holdings of Parker Hannifin, Penn West, Suncor, and Philips Electronics, while we reduced our weightings in Aryzta, Atlas Copco, BAE Systems, CVS Caremark, Diageo, Discover Financial, GlaxoSmithKline, Kerry Group, Kingspan Group, MasterCard, Puma and Wincor Nixdorf.
In Harbour Voyageur, we were very active during the quarter. We eliminated our positions in Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold, General Electric and Pioneer Natural Resources. With regards to General Electric and Pioneer Natural Resources, we booked gains as their share prices approached what we deemed to be fair value. We harvested some gains in MasterCard after a strong advance in its shares.
Subsequent to quarter-end, world markets have experienced general weakness, which we attribute to normal and overdue corrective market forces. This type of market activity, while unsettling, is a normal part of any sustained bull market landscape and we view such pull-backs as a likely opportunity to selectively add to our holdings.
