The following table shows the past performance of the Fund. Past performance does not necessarily indicate how the Fund will perform in the future. The information shown is based on Net Asset Value per unit and assumes that distributions made by the Fund on its units in the period shown were reinvested at Net Asset Value per unit in additional units of the Fund.
The table shows the Fund’s compound return since inception compared with the S&P/TSX Composite Index (‘‘Composite Index’’) and the S&P 500 Index. The Fund invests in primarily North American securities that are in the Composite Index or the S&P 500 Index. The Composite Index tracks the performance, on a market weight basis, of a broad index of large-capitalization issuers listed on the TSX, while the S&P 500 Index tracks the performance of 500 major North American corporations. Since the Fund is actively managed, the sector weightings may differ from those of the indices. The benchmark indices are calculated without the deduction of management fees and fund expenses, whereas the performance of the Fund is calculated after deducting such fees and expenses.
