Active share measures the percentage a portfolio’s holdings that are different from those in its benchmark. Active share shows how the manager is actively exploiting opportunities that are not reflected in the index.

The benchmark used for analytics for this fund is S&P/TSX Composite Index.

Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the prospectus before investing.

The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in units [share] value and reinvestment of all distributions [dividends] and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any security holder that would have reduced returns. The rates of return are used only to illustrate the effects of the compound growth rate and are not intended to reflect future values of the mutual fund or returns on investment in the mutual fund. Investments in mutual funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.

Compound growth calculations are used only for the purpose of illustrating the effects of compound growth and are not intended to reflect future value of any mutual fund or returns on investment in any mutual fund.

R2 is a measurement out of 100 that shows the extent to which a portfolio’s movements can be explained by the benchmark's movements.

Standard deviation is a measure of volatility; it shows how broadly the Fund's returns have varied over a given time period.
