(1) The strategic component presents the findings of a study by R.E.G.A.R. Investment Management Inc. in which the behaviour of the market index was compared to that of an equally weighted model. The study was based on the monthly returns of the MSCI World Index (in US dollars) and the monthly returns of the underlying sectors of that index. Data were obtained from FactSet. The study covers the period from January 1, 1998 to December 31, 2017 (20 years).
The performance of the MSCI World Index was determined using total index returns (including dividends) for the studied period. The performance of the equally weighted model takes into account monthly rebalancing among the sectors within the index used. The top performer (per calendar year) shows the number of occurrences in which each option obtained the highest return in one calendar year for the period covered.
(2) The tactical component presents the findings of a study measuring the added value of sector specialty funds compared to large cap equity funds (traditional mandates). All calculations are based on series F mutual funds as at December 31, 2017. For each of the four traditional management categories, the annualized return (15 years) is the composite return of all monthly returns for the period from January 1, 2003 to December 31, 2017. Each of these monthly returns corresponds to the average return for all mutual funds in the category, where a monthly performance was published. The total return (7.7%), shown at the bottom of the traditional management section, is the average return for the four categories weighted to reflect the geographic distribution in the full (55 mandates equally weighted by sector) of specialized management portfolio. As at December 31, 2017, the geographic distribution was as follows: 25% Canadian Equity + 25% Global Equity + 25% U.S. Equity + 25% International Equity.
For each of the nine sectors used to represent specialized management, the annualized return (15 years) is the composite return of all monthly returns for the period from January 1, 2003 to December 31, 2017. Each of these monthly returns corresponds to the average return for all mutual funds in the sector, where a monthly performance was published. The total return (8.,8%), shown at the bottom of the specialized management section, is the average return for the nine sectors used. For your information, we have provided the average annualized return for the sectors grouped by sector category, i.e., Cyclical, Sensitive, Defensive and Multiple Mandates.
Based on the calculations as described in the two preceding paragraphs, 67%, or 113 of the 169 12-month rolling returns published by sector specialized management, covering the period from January 1, 2003 to December 31, 2017, outperformed those published by traditional management (56/169).

FundGrade A+® is used with permission from Fundata Canada Inc., all rights reserved. The FundGrade A+® Awards are presented annually by Fundata Canada Inc. to Canadian investment funds that achieve consistently high FundGrade scores through an entire calendar year. 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 equally weighted in calculating a monthly FundGrade rating. The FundGrade ratings are divided between five tranches from “A Grade” (superior performance) to “E Grade” (lower performance). The top 10% of funds earn an A Grade; the next 20% of funds earn a B Grade; the next 40% of funds earn a C Grade; the next 20% of funds receive a D Grade; and the lowest 10% of funds receive an E Grade. To be eligible, a fund must have received a FundGrade rating every month in the previous year. The FundGrade A+® uses a GPA (Grade Point Average) 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. The FundGrade grades are subject to change each month.
