FundGrade A+® is used with permission from Fundata Canada Inc., all rights reserved. The FundGrade A+® Awards
are presented annually by Fundata Canada Inc. to Canadian investment funds that achieve consistently high
FundGrade scores through an entire calendar year. The FundGrade A+® calculation is supplemental to the monthly
FundGrade ratings and is calculated at the end of each calendar year. The FundGrade rating system evaluates
funds based on their risk-adjusted performance, measured by Sharpe Ratio, Sortino Ratio and Information Ratio.
The score for each ratio is calculated individually, covering all time periods from 2 to 10 years. The
scores are then equally weighted in calculating a monthly FundGrade rating. The FundGrade ratings are divided
between five tranches from "A Grade" (superior performance) to "E Grade" (lower performance). The top
10% of funds earn an A Grade; the next 20% of funds earn a B Grade; the next 40% of funds earn a
C Grade; the next 20% of funds receive a D Grade; and the lowest 10% of funds receive an
E Grade. To be eligible, a fund must have received a FundGrade rating every month in the previous year.
The FundGrade A+® uses a GPA (Grade Point Average)-style calculation, where each monthly FundGrade rating from
"A" to "E" receives a score from 4 to 0, respectively. A fund's average score for the year determines its GPA.
Any fund with a GPA of 3.5 or greater is awarded a FundGrade A+® Award. The FundGrade grades are subject to
change each month. For more information, please see the web site www.FundGradeAwards.com. Although Fundata
makes every effort to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the data contained herein, the accuracy is not
guaranteed by Fundata.
