Performance returns for the Matco Mutual Funds are calculated by Matco Financial Inc. These returns are calculated and reported in Canadian dollars and are historical simple returns for the 3 month, YTD and 1 year periods and annualized compounded total returns for periods after 1 year. They include 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 security holder that would have reduced returns. A cumulative return on an investment is the aggregate amount that the investment has gained or lost over time, independent of the amount of time involved, expressed as a percentage. Calendar year return reflects the compound rate of return over the specified calendar year (January 1st to December 31st). Matco Fund returns are calculated after management fees and operating expenses have been deducted.
