˜MER as of March 31, 2018. 1The distribution is not guaranteed, may be adjusted from time to time at the discretion of the fund manager and may vary from payment to payment. Amount shown, if any, is the most recent distribution amount. ¤Cash is not included. Note: numbers may not add up to 100% because of rounding. This person acts solely as a portfolio advisor to the Fund. A portfolio advisor provides the Fund with investment research and recommendations. They do not make investment decisions on behalf of the Fund.

The information contained in this fund profile is designed to provide you with general information related to investment alternatives and strategies 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. 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 share and/or unit value and reinvestment of all dividends and/or distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns. Mutual funds are not guaranteed; their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. 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, your original investment will shrink. Distributions paid as a result of capital gains realized by a fund, and income and dividends earned by a fund, are taxable in your hands in the year they are paid. Your adjusted cost base will be reduced by the amount of any returns of capital. If your adjusted cost base falls below zero, you will have to pay capital gains tax on the amount below zero. The performance of a Fund may have been different had events such as mergers, portfolio manager changes and investment objective changes not taken place.
