10-year Partner Program

We believe that one of the keys to pleasing investment returns is taking a long-term view and holding good, undervalued businesses until the market fully recognizes their potential. While you can be lucky over short periods of time, it takes considerable skill to achieve long-term outperformance. The same notion applies to our investors. To succeed in getting to your Point B (whatever your financial goals may be), it takes conviction, a good financial advisor, the fortitude to embrace volatility and, above all, an unwavering long-term view.

We believe it’s important to show our appreciation for your commitment over the years. For investors who have stuck with our investment approach and have focused on the long term, we are rewarding them with lower investment management fees. The fee reduction applies to those partners who have been invested in an EdgePoint Portfolio for 10 or more consecutive years and are currently invested in a qualifying series.

Details of the 10-year Partner Program:

The fee reduction is offered at least annually as a rebate in the form of a management fee distribution (“rebate”) reinvested in additional units of the Portfolio(s) that you hold.

The reduction is applied to the management fee applicable to Series A, Series A(N), Series F or Series F(N) of a Portfolio (“eligible portfolio series”), net of trailer fees that we pay to your Dealer (if applicable), operating expenses and taxes.

*Investment Management Fee is defined as management fees applicable to Series A, Series A(N), Series F or Series F(N), net of trailer fees paid to your Dealer (if applicable), operating expenses and taxes.

Rebate calculation and payment

  • The rebate is calculated based on the total investment value of each eligible portfolio series held in an eligible individual investor account.
  • All fee reductions are paid at least annually following the period that you become eligible. The rebate will not be paid to accounts that have been closed or units that have been redeemed prior to the fee rebate payment date.
  • The rebate is reinvested in additional units of the applicable series of the Portfolio(s) that you hold.

Eligible accounts

  • The rebate is only available on Series A, Series A(N), Series F, and Series F(N) of the eligible portfolio series.
  • Rebates are not paid to Series B units/Series B(N) units as these units are automatically switched to Series A Units/Series A(N)units, respectively, at the completion of the low-load sales charge fee schedule in the fourth year.
  • The rebate is applied to all eligible portfolio series held at the investor account level. If multiple types of investment accounts are registered to the same investor (e.g., non-registered, RRSP, TFSA, RRIF, etc.), the rebate will apply to all eligible portfolio series held by all types of accounts assigned to the individual investor.
  • There is no “householding” option for the 10-year Partner Program. Other accounts that may be associated with an eligible investor (e.g., spouse’s account, holding company account, etc.) will not be eligible for the rebate unless those accounts separately meet the tenure requirement.

Taxation

  • Rebates are taxable in a non-registered account and included on a T3 tax slip. The management fee distributions also increase the cost base of the holdings.
  • Similar to regular mutual fund distributions, you will be responsible for including the amount of any management fee distributions as income in the year in which you received them.
  • You will be sent a tax slip each year that will outline any distributions, including management fee distributions, you received from the Portfolio. Please consult with your financial advisor.

While we use our best efforts to ensure that all qualifying accounts are captured, due to the nature of account openings and closings, account switching, advisor or dealer switching, dealer mergers or other similar events, we cannot ensure that all eligible accounts will be captured. Please contact your advisor if you believe you have an eligible account that has been omitted from the rebate program.

The rebate is not negotiable and is paid at EdgePoint’s discretion. The program may be revised or terminated at any time.



Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses may all be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the prospectus and Fund Facts before investing. Copies are available from your financial advisor or at www.edgepointwealth.com. Unless otherwise indicated, rates of return for periods greater than one year are historical annual compound total returns net of fees including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions, and do not take into account any sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges, or income taxes payable by any securityholder, which would have reduced returns. Mutual funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. This is not an offer to purchase.
