The FundGrade A+™ Awards is used with permission from Fundata Canada Inc., all rights reserved. The annual FundGrade A+™ Awards are presented by Fundata Canada Inc. to recognize the "best of the best" among Canadian investment funds. The FundGrade A+ calculation is supplemental to the monthly FundGrade™ ratings and is calculated at the end of each calendar year.
The FundGrade rating system evaluates funds based on their risk-adjusted performance, measured by Sharpe Ratio, Sortino Ratio, and Information Ratio. The score for each ratio is calculated individually, covering all time periods from 2 to 10 years. The scores are then weighted equally in calculating a monthly FundGrade rating, which is subject to change every month. Funds with the highest 10% receive a grade of A, the next 20% a grade of B, the middle 40% a grade of C, the next 20% a grade of D, and the lowest 10% a grade of E. Eligible funds must have received a FundGrade rating every month in the previous year to be considered for the annual FundGrade A+ Awards. The FundGrade A+ Award uses a GPA-style calculation, where each monthly FundGrade rating from "A" to "E" receives a score from 4 to 0, respectively. A fund's average score for the year determines its GPA. Any fund with a GPA of 3.5 or greater is awarded a FundGrade A+ Award. For more information, see www.FundGradeAwards.com.

Please read the fund facts and prospectus, which contain detailed investment information, before investing. Mutual funds are not guaranteed or insured, their values change frequently, and past performance may not be repeated. Mutual fund strategies and current holdings are subject to change.
