Fonds de solidarité FTQ Posts 12-Month Return of 5.8%

In the first six months of its 2017-2018 financial year, the Fonds de solidarité FTQ posted comprehensive income (profit) of $314 million for the benefit of its 667,000 savers. Share value is now $41.61, for a shareholder return of 2.2% for the six-month period ended November 30, 2018, and a 12-month return of 5.8%. Net assets grew to $14.8 billion.

Created in 1983, the Fonds de solidarité FTQ is a development capital fund that calls upon the solidarity and savings of Quebecers to help fulfill its mission to contribute to Québec's economic growth by creating and protecting jobs through investments primarily in small and medium-sized businesses in all spheres of activity.

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.
