Annualized returns for Cymbria

Annualized returns for EdgePoint Wealth Management


These are the benchmark indexes we’ve chosen for our portfolios:

EdgePoint Global Portfolio: The MSCI World Index is a market-capitalization-weighted index comprising equity securities available in developed markets globally. The index was chosen as it’s a widely used benchmark of the Global equity market.

EdgePoint Canadian Portfolio: The S&P/TSX Composite Index is a market-capitalization-weighted index comprising the largest and most widely held stocks traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The index was chosen as it’s a widely used benchmark of the Canadian equity market.

EdgePoint Canadian Growth & Income Portfolio: 60% S&P/TSX Composite Index / 40% ICE BofA Canada Broad Market Index. The S&P/TSX Composite Index is a market-capitalization-weighted index comprising the largest and most widely held stocks traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The ICE BofA Canada Broad Market Index tracks the performance of publicly traded investment-grade debt denominated in Canadian dollars and issued in the Canadian domestic market. The blended benchmark was chosen because the former is a widely used benchmark of the Canadian equity market and the latter representative of fixed-income opportunities consistent with the Portfolio’s mandate.

EdgePoint Global Growth & Income Portfolio: 60% MSCI World Index / 40% ICE BofA Canada Broad Market Index. The MSCI World Index is a market-capitalization-weighted index comprising equity securities available in developed markets globally. The ICE BofA Canada Broad Market Index tracks the performance of publicly traded investment grade debt denominated in Canadian dollars and issued in the Canadian domestic market. The blended benchmark was chosen because the former is widely used for the Global equity market and the latter representative of fixed-income opportunities consistent with the Portfolio’s mandate.

Why our performance may not be similar to their benchmarks: We manage our Portfolios independently of the indexes we use as long-term performance comparisons. Differences including security holdings and geographic/sector allocations may impact comparability and could result in periods when our performance differs materially from the index. Additional factors such as credit quality, issuer type and yield may impact fixed-income comparability.

Forward-looking statements

This presentation may contain forward-looking statements including strategy, expected performance and condition. Forward-looking statements include statements that are predictive in nature, that depend upon or refer to future events or conditions, or that include words such as “expects”, “anticipates”, “intends”, “plans”, “believes”, “estimates” or negative versions thereof and similar expressions.

In addition, any statement that may be made concerning future performance, strategies or prospects, and possible future action, is also a forward-looking statement. Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and projections about future events and are inherently subject to, among other things, risks, uncertainties and assumptions about economic factors.

Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, and actual events and results could differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements made by EdgePoint. Any number of important factors could contribute to these digressions, including, but not limited to, general economic, political and market factors, interest and foreign exchange rates, global equity and capital markets, business competition, technological change, changes in government regulations, unexpected judicial or regulatory proceedings, and catastrophic events.

We stress that the above-mentioned list of important factors is not exhaustive. We encourage you to consider these and other factors carefully before making any investment decisions and we urge you to avoid placing undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Further, you should be aware of the fact that we have no specific intention of updating any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, prior to the release of the next Management Report on Fund Performance.
