The Pender Strategic Growth and Income Fund (formerly the Pender Balanced Fund) is a conservatively managed balanced fund. Our investment team believes that at any point in time, individual securities, sectors or asset classes can become mispriced so the Fund is also designed to be opportunistic. The Pender Strategic Growth and Income Fund has a flexible mandate that can move from 80/20 to 20/80 fixed income/equity. It looks for securities with the best risk/return balance, regardless of whether that is through capital appreciation or income.

Mr. Narhi is the Chief Investment Officer of Pender, responsible for setting Pender’s investment direction. He is the Portfolio Manager of the Pender US All Cap Equity Fund and the Pender Strategic Growth and Income Fund, and Co-Manager of the Pender Value Fund.
Prior to joining Pender in July 2013, Mr. Narhi spent over nine years at an independent and value-oriented investment firm in Vancouver. As a Director and Senior Equity Analyst, Mr. Narhi contributed thought leadership and primarily US equity ideas to the company’s Model Portfolio, a concentrated equity portfolio that has outpaced North American benchmarks since its inception in 1994.
Mr. Narhi holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of British Columbia. He earned his Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation in 2003 and is a member of CFA Vancouver.
Mr. Narhi advocates a business-like approach to investing. Sound investing is the process of determining the value underlying a security and then buying it at a considerable discount to that value. The greatest challenge is to maintain the necessary balance between patience, emotional fortitude and discipline to only buy when prices are attractive and to sell when they are dear, while avoiding the short-term “noise” that consumes most market participants.
