2Fixed income securities unrated by external agencies are assigned an internal Canso rating for Average Credit Quality. 3Distributions are based on the actual number of units outstanding at the relevant time. Distributions are paid in cash or reinvested in additional units. If the series’ net income/capital gains is less than the amounts distributed in the year, the distribution will include a return of capital. In these circumstances, if an investor elects to receive their distributions in cash and not reinvest distributions, it is expected that the value of their investment will decline over time. Distributions are not an indication of performance, rate of return or yield. ®Lysander Funds is a registered trademark of Lysander Funds Limited.
