Historical returns are taken from actual segregated portfolio returns prior to the inception of the fund in April 2018

*The performance information is based on the back-tested performance of hypothetical investments over the time periods indicated. “Back-testing” is a process of objec-tively simulating historical investment returns by applying a set of rules for buying and selling securities, and other assets, backward in time, testing those rules, and hypo-thetically investing in the securities and other assets that are chosen. Back-testing is designed to allow investors to understand and evaluate certain strategies by seeing how they would have performed hypothetically during certain time periods. While back-testing results reflect rigorous application of the investment strategy selected, back-tested results have certain limitations and should not be considered indica-tive of future results. The results achieved in our simulations do not guarantee future investment results.
