Disclaimer

You will usually pay brokerage fees to your dealer if you purchase or sell units of the Fund on the TSX. If  the units are purchased or sold on the TSX, investors may pay more than the current net asset value when buying units of the Fund and may receive less than the current net asset value when selling them. There are ongoing fees associated and expenses associated with owning units of an investment fund. An investment fund must prepare disclosure documents that contain key information about the fund. You can find more detailed information about the fund in these documents. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account income taxes payable by any securityholder that would reduced the returns. Investment funds are not  guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. 100% of distributions are received in cash. If the Fund earns less than the amount distributed, the difference is a return of capital. The current yield is calculated based on the market price of the Fund.
