About Vision Capital Corporation

Vision Capital Corporation (“Vision” or the “Manager”), a registrant with the Ontario Securities Commission, currently manages the Vision Opportunity Funds (the “Funds”), comprising a range of private investment products currently available to accredited investors. The Funds focus primarily on the real estate sector and invest predominantly in publicly-traded equity and debt securities. The Funds target investments that are expected to outperform on a medium term, risk adjusted basis. They can make concentrated investments in the Manager’s best ideas and themes, and utilize a long-short strategy. The Manager selectively employs active investing strategies to improve returns. While the Funds have flexibility to invest outside Canada, they operate primarily in Canada. The managers employ a value-based approach and seek to benefit from the fact that Canadian publicly traded real estate securities are often not efficiently priced.

Vision benefits from the experience, expertise, insights and relationships of its portfolio managers, Frank Mayer and Jeffrey Olin. Previously, Frank Mayer was a top-ranked Canadian real estate investment analyst and senior executive with several global and Canadian investment dealers for more than thirty five years. Jeffrey Olin has over twenty five years of senior level, corporate and investment industry experience, with ten years in the real estate industry and fifteen years in investment banking and investment industry senior management positions.

The Vision Funds have received considerable industry recognition for their leading risk-adjusted return performance. The Vision Opportunity Fund Limited Partnership II received an award at the 2011 Canadian Hedge Fund of the Year Awards at KPMG as the best performing (new) fund. This is the third consecutive year that a Fund managed by Vision was recognized as amongst the top five in Canada. The Vision LP was the top performing fund in the Scotia Hedge Fund Index in 2010. In addition, the Vision LP received a Bronze Award as the Best Opportunistic Hedge Fund by Morningstar in December 2011. Each Vision Fund that has been operating for more than 3 years has earned a Morningstar 5 star rating.
