The Fonds also seeks to encourage Quebecers to save for retirement and to offer its over half a million shareholders-savers a reasonable return over and above the outstanding tax benefits they receive for purchasing Fonds shares. A leading purveyor of unsecured risk capital (growth and venture capital), the Fonds continues to drive our economy.
