Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the Renaissance Investments family of funds simplified prospectus before investing. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns for the class F units including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions, but do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any unitholder that would have reduced returns. Mutual fund securities are not covered by the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation or by any other government deposit insurer, nor are they guaranteed. There can be no assurance that a money market fund will be able to maintain its net asset value per unit at a constant amount or that the full amount of your investment will be returned to you. The values of many mutual funds change frequently. Past performance may not be repeated.
