The 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 Class A share and per unit, or the redemption price per Preferred share and assumes that distributions (including deemed distributions based on the intrinsic value of the warrants at approximately the exercise date of the warrants) made by the Fund on the Class A shares, Preferred shares and units in the periods shown were reinvested (at Net Asset Value per Class A share and per unit, or the redemption price per Preferred share) in additional Class A shares, units and Preferred shares of the Fund.

The tables show the Fund’s year-by-year and compound returns on a Class A share, Preferred share and unit for each period indicated compared with the S&P/TSX Capped Financials Index (‘‘Financials Index’’) and the S&P/TSX Composite Index (‘‘Composite Index’’) and the S&P/TSX Preferred Share Index (“Preferred Share Index”). The Composite Index tracks the performance, on a market weight basis, of a broad index of large-capitalization issuers listed on the TSX and the Financials Index is derived from the Composite Index based on the financials sector of the Global Industry Classification Standard. The Preferred Share Index tracks the performance, on a market weight basis, of a broad index of preferred shares trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Fund passively invests on an equal weight basis in a portfolio comprised of six Canadian banks which are in both the Financials Index and the Composite Index. Since the indices have more diversified portfolios it is therefore not expected that the Fund’s performance will mirror that of the indices. Further, the Financials Index and Composite Index returns are calculated without the impact of management fees and fund expenses, whereas the performance of the Fund is calculated after deducting such fees and expenses.

Returns for Brompton Split Banc Corp. are unaudited.

You will usually pay brokerage fees to your dealer if you purchase or sell shares of the investment fund on the Toronto Stock Exchange or other alternative Canadian trading system (an “exchange”).  If the shares are purchased or sold on an exchange, investors may pay more than the current net asset value when buying shares of the investment fund and may receive less than the current net asset value when selling them.

There are ongoing fees and expenses associated with owning shares 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 the public filings available at www.sedar.com.  The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in share value and reinvestment of all distributions and does not take into account certain fees such as redemption costs or income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns.  Investment funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.
