* The information above contains historical compounded total returns of Sentry Select Canadian Income Fund, and is not intended to be, nor should it be construed as, an indication as to the future returns or volatility of the Fund or the Fund Portfolio or the potential distributions or return, if any, on the Deposit Notes. For Sentry Select Canadian Income Fund, it assumes that all distributions were reinvested in additional units of each fund or closed-end trust. The returns are shown after the payment of expenses and management fees of each fund but have not been reduced by any applicable sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or taxes. The above performance information reflects the payment of the actual management expense ratios for the Sentry Select Canadian Income Fund for the indicated periods. By contrast, the Fund Portfolio is subject to annual fees which may, in certain cases, be higher than the actual management expense ratio of the Sentry Select Canadian Income Fund. As a result of the potential for differing fees, the performance of the Fund Portfolio, as compared to Sentry Select Canadian Income Fund, may have generated lower returns than those shown above if it had existed over the same time periods.
