*The Star Rating is as of December 31, 2019 for Series F of the Exemplar Growth and Income Fund. The number of funds within its category is as follows: Canadian Equity Balanced Category: 3 years – 5 stars (347 funds). Morningstar Star Ratings are subject to change monthly. The rating is an objective, quantitative measure of a fund’s historical risk-adjusted performance relative to other funds in its category. Only funds with at least a three-year track record are considered. The Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Rating (MRAR), commonly referred to as the Star Rating, relates the risk-adjusted performance of a fund to its peers in the category. Morningstar calculates ratings only for categories with at least 20 funds. To determine a fund's rating, the fund and its peers are ranked by their MRARs. If a fund scores in the top 10% of its fund category, it receives five stars (High); if it falls in the next 22.5%, it receives four stars (Above Average); a place in the middle 35% earns a fund three stars (Neutral or Average); those in the next 22.5% receive two stars (Below Average); and the lowest 10% get one star (Low). Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Ratings are recalculated monthly. For additional resources on the Star Rating and answers to frequently asked questions, see morningstar.ca. Fund inception date is March 16, 2015.

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.
