3. Prospectus Funds And Offering Memorandum Funds
Lysander is the investment fund manager (“IFM”) of the Prospectus Funds, ETF, Closed-end Fund and Alternative Funds. Canso Fund Management Ltd. (“CFM”) is the IFM of the Offering Memorandum Funds. Employees and personnel are acting on behalf of Lysander in respect of the Prospectus Funds, ETF, Closed-end Fund and Alternative Funds and on behalf of CFM in respect of the Offering Memorandum Funds.
Purchases in the Prospectus Funds or Offering Memorandum Funds, ETF, Closed-end Fund and Alternative Funds can only be made through an Investment Professional on the terms in a fund’s offering memorandum, prospectus or simplified prospectus by qualified investors. For example, only accredited investors may invest in funds sold via an offering memorandum. Each purchaser of units in a fund may have statutory or contractual rights of action. The information in these documents is subject to change without notice.
Lysander-Canso Credit Opportunities Fund and Lysander-Triasima All Country Long/Short Equity Fund are alternative mutual funds. They have the ability to invest in asset classes or use investment strategies that are not permitted for other types of mutual funds. The speciﬁc strategies that diﬀerentiate these funds from other types of mutual funds include: increased use of derivatives for non-hedging purposes; increased ability to sell securities short; and the ability to borrow cash to use for investment purposes. While these strategies will be used in accordance with the funds’ investment objectives and strategies, during certain market conditions they may accelerate the pace at which your investment decreases in value. The Funds have also obtained additional flexibility from certain regulatory provisions through exemptive relief as described in the prospectus.
Prior to May 11, 2020, Series F units of Lysander-Canso Credit Opportunities Fund were offered on a private placement basis. The inception date of Series F Units is March 31, 2014. The inception date of Lysander-Canso Credit Opportunities Fund is December 19, 2008. Performance information for the period December 19, 2008 to March 30, 2014 is that of Lysander-Canso Credit Opportunities Fund but with Series F fees and expenses applied. Prior to May 11, 2020, the operating expenses of Lysander-Canso Credit Opportunities Fund would have been higher had Lysander-Canso Credit Opportunities Fund been subject to the additional regulatory requirements applicable to a reporting issuer.
Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the applicable offering memorandum, prospectus or simplified prospectus before investing.
Unless otherwise specified, the indicated rates of return are historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns. Mutual fund securities are not covered by the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation or by any other government deposit insurer. Investment funds are not guaranteed; their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.
You will usually pay brokerage fees to your dealer if you purchase or sell units of funds listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX). If the units are purchased or sold on the TSX, investors may pay more than the current net asset value when buying units of these investment funds and may receive less than the current net asset value when selling them.
There are ongoing fees and expenses associated with owning units of a closed-end fund. These investment fund must prepare disclosure documents that contain key information about the fund. You can find more detailed information about the fund in these documents.
Performance returns for Class A units of Canso Credit Income Fund (CCIF) are based on the net asset values of Class A. Prior to June 25, 2015, CCIF used a fund-on-fund investment strategy whereby the Fund gained exposure to Canso Credit Trust through a forward agreement. On June 25, 2015, as a result of changes to the Income Tax Act (Canada), the Fund changed its investment objectives, ceased to use a fund-on-fund strategy and began investing in securities directly. In addition, prior to July 1, 2020, the Fund paid servicing fees at 0.40% per annum on Class A units. On July 1, 2020, the Fund discontinued the payment of servicing fees. These changes could have affected the performance of the Fund had these changes been in effect throughout the performance measurement period.
The Class A performance numbers shown may be different from the performance provided by sources that obtain performance information from the TSX under the symbol PBY.UN, which performance is based on the trading price of the units.

FundGrade A+® is used with permission from Fundata Canada Inc., all rights reserved. The annual FundGrade A+® Awards are presented by Fundata Canada Inc. to recognize the “best of the best” among Canadian investment funds. 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 weighted equally in calculating a monthly FundGrade. 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-style calculation, where each monthly FundGrade 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. For more information, see www.FundGradeAwards.com. Although Fundata makes every effort to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the data contained herein, the accuracy is not guaranteed by Fundata. Note: The FundGrade ratings for each fund are subject to change every month.
