4 About DALBAR, Inc. DALBAR, Inc. is the financial community’s leading independent expert for evaluating, auditing and rating business practices, customer performance, product quality and service. Launched in 1976, DALBAR has earned the recognition for consistent and unbiased evaluations of investment companies, registered investment advisers, insurance companies, broker/dealers, retirement plan providers and financial professionals. DALBAR awards are recognized as marks of excellence in the financial common Since 1994, DALBAR’s QAIB has been measuring the effects of investor decisions to buy, sell and switch into and out of mutual funds over both short- and long-term time frames. The results consistently show that the average investor earns less – in many cases, much less – than mutual fund performance reports would suggest. The goal of QAIB is to continue to improve the performance of independent investors on the one hand and of professional financial advisors on the other hand by incorporating the factors that influence behaviour that determines the outcome of investment or savings strategies. QAIB offers guidance on how and where investor behaviours can be improved. QAIB 2011 examines real investor returns in equity, fixed income and asset allocation funds. The analysis covers the 20-year period ended December 31, 2010, encompassing both the drop at the turn of the millennium and the crash of 2008, plus the recovery periods of 2009 and 2010. This year’s report discusses the goal of “investor alpha”. The report explains how investors and advisors adapt to changing market conditions and produce investor alpha using investor behaviours, the psychological factors that drive them and the knowledge of how investment classes have acted in the past.

5 Investor Behaviours Continue to Fall Prey to Market Forces The following charts illustrate that investors continue to react to market movements and the news. One of the most startling and ongoing facts is that at no point in time have average investors remained invested for sufficiently long enough periods to derive the benefits of a long-term investment strategy. While we still see that investors will react to market corrections over the 20 years since 1991, since 2003 the reaction has been more muted. These charts show that recommendations by many mutual fund companies to remain invested have had little effect on what investors actually do. The result is that the alpha created by portfolio management is lost to the average investor, who generally abandons investments at inopportune times, often in response to bad news.

15 Double Dip Recession? Recession – To be or not to be… Recessions tend to occur when certain indicators are at their respective peaks: 1 Job growth – US unemployment has declined slightly from a high of over 10.1% to 8.5% 2 Inflation growth – US CPI increased to 3.0% annualized to December 3 Capacity utilization expansion – Dec 2011 increased year over year to 78.1% average 1972- 2010 80.4% 4 Wage growth – US 3 rd Quarter National wage growth was up 0.1% 5. Interest rate yield curve is inverted – Current curve is normal - None of these factors are at high levels prompting belief that any recession would be short lived, and would not resemble those that were witnessed in 1991 or 2001. The recession of 2008 was a perfect storm of crumbling consumer confidence, a debt meltdown and a precedent setting liquidity crisis.

16 Pension Plans in 2011

17 Pension Plan’s cont... Only about 4.5 million Canadians now have guaranteed benefits, most in the public sector. Many companies in the private sector have found the cost of guaranteeing benefits under defined benefit plans too expensive and, in some cases, a threat to their survival. Defined Benefit plans are dying There is clear shift world wide from Defined Benefit (DB) plans to Defined Contribution )DC) plans. In 2000, 65% of pensions were Defined Benefit plans but by 2010 only 56% of all pensions were Defined Benefit. In the US, DB plans were about 51% of all pensions in 2000. Ten years later, than number dropped to 43%. The most dramatic change comes in the UK where they started with Defined Benefit plans making up 97% of all pensions. In 2010 that number fell to 60%. CPP and OAS are designed to replace approximately 25% of gross income ( depending on previous income ) The higher the income was the lesser the percentage replacement. Maximum 2012 CPP payment is $986.67 and maximum OAS ( not including GIS) is $540.12 totalling $1526.79 per month. This equates to 25% of a $73,285 gross employment income. If someone needs making $73,285 needs a replacement retirement income of 70% or $51,300 the government benefit only covers $18,321 the annual gap in the first year is $32,798 Source Stats Canada.

Using monthly fund data supplied by the Investment Company Institute, QAIB calculates investor returns as the change in assets after excluding sales, redemptions and exchanges. This method of calculation captures realized and unrealized capital gains, dividends, interest, trading costs, sales charges, fees, expenses and any other costs. After calculating investor returns in dollar terms, two percentages are calculated for the period examined: Total investor return rate and annualized investor return rate. Total return rate is determined by calculating the investor return dollars as a percentage of the net of the sales, redemptions, and exchanges for the period. Systematic investing examples are hypothetical and for illustrative purposes only. Systematic investing involves continuous investments regardless of security price levels. It cannot assure a profit or protect against loss in declining markets.
