The Fund has been designed to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the MSCI World Risk Weighted Top 200 Index Hedged to CAD (the “Index”), net of expenses.
MSCI World Risk Weighted Top 200 Index is based on a traditional market capitalization weighted parent index, MSCI World Index, which includes large and mid-capitalization stocks. Constructed using a simple, but effective and transparent process, each security of the parent index is reweighted so that stocks with lower risk are given higher index weights. The final constituents of the MSCI World Risk Weighted Top 200 Index are determined by ranking these security level risk weights and taking the top 200 subset securities. The Indexes seek to emphasize stocks with lower historical return variance and tend to have a bias towards lower size and lower risk stocks. Historically, the Indexes have exhibited lower realized volatility in comparison to its parent index.
The Index is hedged to the Canadian dollar by notionally “selling” each foreign currency forward at the one-month forward exchange rate at the end of each month. The investment strategy of the Fund is to invest in and hold the constituent securities of the Index. It is intended that, except as described in the prospectus, at all times at least 90% of the foreign currency denominated assets held by the Fund attributable to the Units will be hedged back to the Canadian dollar.
The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns, including changes in unit value and do not take into account sales, redemption or optional charges or income taxes payable by a security holder that would have reduced returns.
