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 an investment in the funds managed by Sentry. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

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 rates of return are used only to illustrate the effects of the compound growth rate and are not intended to reflect future values or returns on investment in a fund. Funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.

The information contained herein is not an offer to sell nor a solicitation to buy any security. Such an offer can only be made by prospectus or other applicable offering document.

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.
