Investing with FlexiFonds is a great way to keep your savings local!

Seventy percent of the Fonds' assets are related to the local economy, 30% of which are made up of Fonds de solidarité FTQ shares that are directly reinvested in Québec companies.

Products that are unique on the market

The variation in FlexiFonds funds returns can be explained by looking at the four main components of which they are comprised.

Fonds de solidarité FTQ shares

Their value is established twice a year, on May 31 and November 30.

Québec stocks

Their value changes every day, depending on the markets.

Global equities

Their value changes every day, depending on the markets.

Fixed income securities

Their value changes every day, depending on the markets.

A two-tiered variation

A portion of the FlexiFonds portfolio varies every day: This includes stocks and bonds, which make up 70% of the funds' mix.

The other portion only changes twice a year: The value of Fonds shares, which make up 30% of the funds, is usually only determined twice a year. This is the only time when they might impact the value of fund units.

How does this two-tiered variation affect your savings?

Daily fluctuations of FlexiFonds funds may be less significant than those of other mutual funds, whereas changes in the value of Fonds FTQ shares in June and December will have a greater impact on their value.

Because Fonds' shares can yield a positive return while the markets are down and vice versa, it's crucial to analyze the performance of FlexiFonds portfolios over time, i.e., over several years.
