This is a hypothetical illustration of our portfolio performance as of the date noted above. The time-weighted performance is displayed in Canadian dollars and assumes daily rebalancing (unless otherwise stated) and the reinvestment of distributions. Flex Safety Portfolio assumes monthly rebalance. It is reflective of the model portfolio's target holdings and weights including portfolio changes. The performance is net of the management expense ratios (MERs); however, does not include WealthBar’s management fee or taxes. Performance is annualized for all periods greater than one year. This performance may differ from clients’ actual account return due to the timing of deposits, withdrawals, buys and sells, and the reinvestment of distributions.

The performance provided is for informational purposes only and is not to be considered as investment advice. Portfolio performance is not guaranteed. The value of your investment can go down, up and change frequently. Past performance is not indicative of future returns. There may be significant differences between the investment portfolios that are not discussed here, including different investment objectives and risk factors. You should always consider, in any investment decision, your investment objectives, needs, circumstances, restrictions, tolerance for risk, financial goals and investment time frame.
