Important Disclaimers

Past Performance:
Investment funds are not guaranteed. Their values change frequently, and past performance may not be repeated.

The Sharpe Ratio is a risk adjusted return measure. It is calculated by using standard deviation and excess return to determine reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe Ratio, the better the portfolio's historical risk adjusted performance.

The rates of return in the Sharpe Ratio are the historical annual compound total returns net of fees including changes in security 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.

Standard Deviation is widely used to measure risk in terms of the volatility of returns. It represents the historical level of volatility in returns over set periods. A lower standard deviation means the returns have historically been less volatile and vice versa. Historical volatility may not be indicative of future volatility.

Eligibility Of Award:
The Marret Enhanced Tactical Fixed Income Fund, the Marret Investment Grade Hedged Strategies Fund, and the Marret Diversified Opportunities Fund represent all Marret Funds which would have been under consideration for these awards.
