The risk meter is based on the methodology recommended by the Fund Risk Classification Task Force of the Investment Funds Institute of Canada. The Task Force recommends that a risk assessment should be considered relative to the historical volatility risk as measured by the standard deviation of performance for the fund and its benchmark. The Task Force also acknowledges that other types of measurable and non-measurable risk may exist. The Task Force reminds investors that historical performance may not be indicative of future returns and a fund’s historical volatility may not be indicative of future volatility.

Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the prospectus before investing. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compound total returns net of fees (except for figures of one year or less, which are simple total returns) 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 security holder that would have reduced returns. For Series I, Series O and Series O8, the stated rates of returns do not take into account the management fees and dealer/ advisor service fees payable directly by Series I, O and O8 securityholders that would have reduced returns. The performance of Series I, O and O8 would be lower if such fees were deducted from the holdings. Mutual funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.

The table shown is used only to illustrate the effects of the compound growth rate and is not intended to reflect future values of the mutual fund or returns on investment in the mutual fund.

The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total return including changes in security value and reinvestment of all distributions or dividends (as applicable) and are reported net of management fees and operating expenses. The rates of returns do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns.

The Sentry Money Market Fund and Sentry Money Market Class are not available for direct purchase under the DSC or LL options. These codes can be used for switches/transfers between DSC or LL funds.

The fund’s MER represents the trailing 12-month management expense ratio, which reflects the cost of running the fund as a percentage of average total assets. The MER is calculated twice annually as of March 31 and September 30, and is reported in each fund’s Management Report of Fund Performance (MRFP). The MRFPs can be found within the Documents tab on each fund page.
