How risky is it?
The value of the Fund can go down as well as up. You could lose money.
One way to gauge risk is to look at how much a fund’s returns change over time. This is called “volatility”.
In general, funds with higher volatility will have returns that change more over time. They typically have a greater chance of losing money and may have a greater chance of higher returns. Funds with lower volatility tend to have returns that change less over time. They typically have lower returns and may have a lower chance of losing money.
Lysander Funds Limited has rated the volatility of this Fund as Low.
This rating is based on how much the Fund’s returns have changed from year to year. It doesn’t tell you how volatile the Fund will be in the future. The rating can change over time. A fund with a low risk rating can still lose money.
For more information about the risk rating and specific risks that can affect the Fund’s returns, see the Risk section of the Fund’s simplified prospectus.
Like most mutual funds, this Fund doesn’t have any guarantees. You may not get back the amount of money you invest.
How has the fund performed?
This section tells you how the Series O Units of the Fund have performed. Returns are after fund expenses have been deducted. These expenses reduce the Series’ returns.
This chart would generally show how Series O Units of the Fund performed in each of the past 7 calendar years. However, year-by-year returns for Series O Units of the Fund have not been presented for the calendar years beginning 2016 because Series O Units were not outstanding for a full calendar year during those years. Series O Units did not drop in value in the years shown. The range of returns and change from year to year can help you assess how risky the Fund has been in the past. It does not tell you how the Fund will perform in the future.
Best and worst 3-month returns
This table would generally show the best and worst return for Series O Units of the Fund in a 3-month period over the past 7 calendar years. However, the best and worst 3-month returns are only being presented for 2015, since Series O Units were not outstanding for a full calendar year from 2016 to present.
|Return||3 months ending||If you invested $1,000 at the beginning of the period|
|Best Return||2.95%||March 31, 2015||Your investment would rise to $1,029.50|
|Worst Return||-2.37%||August 31, 2015||Your investment would drop to $976.30|
This section shows the value and annual compounded rate of return of a hypothetical $1,000 investment in Series O units of the Fund. However, this information is not available because Series O Units have not been outstanding continuously since inception.
Who is the fund for?
Investors who plan to hold this investment for the medium to long term and want to receive interest income.
A word about tax
In general, you’ll have to pay income tax on your share of the Fund’s earnings and on taxable capital gains you realize from redeeming your investment. How much you pay depends on the tax rates that apply to you, and whether or not you hold the fund in a registered plan such as a Registered Retirement Savings Plan or a Tax-Free Savings Account.
Keep in mind that if you hold your fund in a non-registered account, fund distributions of income and taxable capital gains are included in your taxable income, whether you get them in cash or have them reinvested.
How much does it cost?
The following tables show the fees and expenses you could pay to buy, own and sell Series O Units of the Fund. The fees and expenses – including any commissions – can vary among series of a fund and among funds. Higher commissions can influence representatives to recommend one investment over another. Ask about other funds and investments that may be suitable for you at a lower cost.
No sales charges apply when you purchase Series O Units of the Fund.
You do not pay these expenses directly. They affect you because they reduce the Fund’s returns.
The Fund’s expenses are made up of the management fee, operating expenses and trading costs. The Series’ management fee is negotiated on a case-by-case basis with Lysander Funds Limited, but will not exceed the management fee payable on Series A Units of the Fund, which is currently 1.25%.
