On November 10, 2006, the Fund acquired the assets of another Mackenzie-sponsored fund in a merger that was considered a material change for the Fund. Therefore, the Fund’s performance is provided from the date of the merger rather than its inception, as required under applicable securities laws.

On July 26, 2013, the Fund (all series) changed its mandate from investing mainly in equity securities of North American companies to investing primarily in equity securities of U.S. companies. The past performance before this date was achieved under the previous objectives.

The Series G versions of this fund are closed to new investments.

On July 26, 2013, the Fund changed its mandate to a US growth fund. The past performance before this date was achieved under the previous objectives.

Fund Risk Measures:
  • Annualized Standard Deviation: A measure of how widely returns varied over a period. A lower standard deviation means the returns of the fund have historically been less volatile and vice-versa. Standard deviation is a measure of historical risk; future risk may be different.
  • Annualized Standard Deviation Benchmark: A measure of how widely returns varied over a period. A lower standard deviation means the returns of the benchmark have historically been less volatile, and vice-versa.
  • Alpha: A measure of the difference between a portfolio's actual return and its expected return given its level of risk. Risk is measured by beta. A positive number indicates that it has performed better than beta would predict.
  • Beta: A measure of the tendency of the value of the fund and the value of the benchmark to move together. The market has a beta of 1. If beta of a fund is higher than 1, the movement in value compared to the benchmark tends to be amplified. A beta less than 1 means the movement in value tends to be dampened.
  • R2: A measure that represents the percentage of a fund's movements that can be attributed to movements of a benchmark index.
  • Sharpe Ratio: A measure of how much of a fund's excess return is achieved for a certain level of risk. The greater a fund's Sharpe Ratio, the higher the risk-adjusted returns.

Effective June 1, 2018, the management fee and/or administration fee of series F, PW, PWB, PWT, PWFB, and PWX of the fund was reduced. The new fees will not be fully reflected in the current MER until the semi-annual MER for the period ended September 30, 2019.

Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees, brokerage fees and expenses may be associated with investment funds. Please read the prospectus before investing. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and does not take into account sales, redemption, distribution, or optional charges or income taxes payable by any security holder that would have reduced returns. Investment funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.

For changes in the business, operations or affairs of an investment fund, and reorganization or acquisition of assets in an investment fund during the most recent 10 years that could have materially affected the performance of the investment fund, please refer to the "Major Changes During the Last 10 Years” section in the most recent Annual Information Form.

Index performance does not include the impact of fees, commissions, and expenses that would be payable by investors in the investment products that seek to track an index.

The rate of return is used only to illustrate the effects of the compound growth rate and is not intended to reflect future values of the investment fund or asset allocation service or returns on investment in the investment fund or from the use of the asset allocation service.
