Highlights

Key reasons to invest

We primarily use a fundamental bottom-up approach to security analysis. The Fund maintains a global equity focus and invests primarily in securities of mid- to large-size companies that have a track record of sustained earnings growth. The Fund also invests in sector and market exchange traded funds. The Fund seeks to manage the downside risks of the equity securities in which the Fund invests through the use of derivatives including, without limitation, buying or selling a combination of put and/or call options. The Fund employs this strategy to reduce exposure to market declines, while recognizing that the Fund may not fully benefit from strong equity market growth. The Fund is diversified by sector, normally holding between 20 and 40 issuers. The Fund is diversified globally but maintains a U.S. equity bias, targeting a minimum 50% allocation to U.S. equities. The Fund will use derivatives to hedge against potential loss. The Fund will also use derivatives for non-hedging purposes, including put and/or call options, futures, forward contracts and swaps, in order to gain exposure to certain securities without investing directly in such securities, to reduce the impact of currency fluctuations on the Fund or to provide protection for the Funds portfolio.

The Inception Date is the start date of investment performance and may not coincide with the date the fund or series was first offered for sale under a prospectus or its legal date of creation.

The Risk Classification of a fund has been determined in accordance with a standardized risk classification methodology in National Instrument 81-102, that is based on the fund’s historical volatility as measured by the 10-year standard deviation of the fund’s returns. Where a fund has offered securities to the public for less than 10 years, the standardized methodology requires that the standard deviation of a reference mutual fund or index that reasonably approximates the fund’s standard deviation be used to determine the fund’s risk rating. Please note that historical performance may not be indicative of future returns and a fund’s historical volatility may not be indicative of future volatility.

The indicated rates of return in the charts above are used only to illustrate the effects of the compound growth rate and are not intended to reflect the future value of the fund or returns on investment in the fund.

The Growth of $10,000 chart shows the final value of a hypothetical $10,000 investment in securities of this series of the fund as at the end of the investment period indicated and is not intended to reflect future values or returns on investment in such securities.

For major events that may affect the performance of a fund in the last 10 years, including, where applicable, its participation in an amalgamation or merger with another fund or a change in its investment objectives or portfolio advisor, please refer to the "History of the Fund" section in the fund's most recently-filed Annual Information Form. The performance of a fund may have been different had events such as these not taken place.

The information contained on this fund page is designed to provide you with general information related to the mutual fund and is not intended to be comprehensive investment advice applicable to the circumstances of the individual. We strongly recommend you to consult with a financial advisor prior to making any investment decisions.

Disclaimer
Distributions are paid in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated. Each Fund makes distributions in accordance with the distribution policy stated in the Simplified Prospectus. Each of the Funds has the ability to make distributions as returns of capital.
This information is for information purposes only and should not be construed to be tax advice. Your own tax advisor must be consulted for advice. The payment of distributions should not be confused with a fund's performance, rate of return or yield. If distributions paid by the fund are greater than the performance of the fund, distributions paid may include a return of capital and an investor's original investment will decrease. A return of capital is not taxable to the investor, but will generally reduce the adjusted cost base of the securities held for tax purposes. If the adjusted cost base falls below zero, investors will realize capital gains equal to the amount below zero. Future distribution dates may be amended at any time. Reinvested distributions are not paid in cash but instead remain invested in the Fund. To recognize that these distributions have been allocated to investors for tax purposes the amounts of these distributions should be added to the adjusted cost base of the units held. The characterization of distributions for tax purposes (such as dividends/other income/capital gains etc.) will not be known for certain until after the Fund's tax year end. Therefore investors will be informed of the tax characterization after year-end and not with each distribution. For tax purposes these amounts will be reported annually on official tax statements.
