Disclaimer Invest better: Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the prospectus before investing. Mutual fund securities are not covered by the Canadian Deposit Insurance Corporation or by any other government deposit insurance. Mutual funds are not guaranteed, their value changes frequently and past performance may not be repeated. The payment of distributions for Dividend Tax Credit Class and the Return of Capital Class should not be confused with a mutual fund ’ s performance, rate of return or yield. If distributions paid by a mutual fund are greater than the performance of the fund, then your investment will decline. Distributions paid as a result of capital gains realized by a mutual fund and income and dividends earned by a fund are taxable in your hands in the year they are paid. For Return of Capital Class, your adjusted cost base will be reduced by the amount of any returns of capital. If your adjusted cost base goes below zero, then you will have to pay capital gains tax on the amount below zero. The rates of return, annual distribution rates and income components comprising a given distribution contained in the tax cases and reflected in certain graphs and tables are for illustrative purposes only utilizing various assumptions to demonstrate the importance of compound growth and the effects of taxation on a given investment. They are not intended to reflect, nor should they be interpreted, as an indication of future values or returns on investment in respect of any NexGen Fund. Tax liabilities on investment income and capital gains earned by a mutual fund cannot be mitigated nor can they be fully managed in all circumstances. The risk increases the greater the investment return earned by the mutual fund. As a result, a mutual fund may be required to make taxable distributions to investors in a NexGen Tax Class for which a distribution or type of distribution is not optimal or in accordance with their tax preference. The tax efficiency of the Return of Capital Class and the Compound Growth Class is enhanced the greater the demand for the Capital Gains Class, Dividend Tax Credit Class and the Registered Fund Class.
