Press Releases


Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the prospectus before investing. * The Fund was originally launched as a TSX-listed closed-end fund on June 29, 2010, and converted into an open-end mutual fund on June 18, 2012. In connection with the conversion of the Fund into an open-end mutual fund, the trailing commission charged on the Class R units increased by 0.60% (increasing the aggregate annual management fee to 2.25%), and the Fund ceased using leverage in order to achieve its investment objectives. If these changes had been in effect when the Fund was created, the performance would have been lower. Indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and does 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. If the Fund earns less than the amount distributed, the difference is a return of capital. 100% of distributions are reinvested in the Fund unless you ask to receive your distributions 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 net asset value of the Fund.
