Accredited investors or certain other qualified investors may also purchase securities through Maxam Capital Management Ltd in reliance on certain prospectus exemptions available in National Instrument 45-106. Investors should consult with their own investment advisor and obtain a copy of our applicable Simplified Prospectus and Fund Facts documents before investing in the Fund.

Maxam assumes no duty, and does not undertake, to update any forward-looking statement and cautions you not to place undue reliance on these statements as actual events or results may differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements made.  Fund Statistics are calculated relative to the S&P/TSX TRI and the Scotiabank Canadian Hedge Fund Index, Equal Weighted (note that the latest Scotiabank data provided is on a one month delay).

Downside Capture Ratio is a measure of the Fund’s performance in down markets relative to the S&P/TSX TRI.  “Beta” measures the volatility of the Fund relative to a selected index or benchmark; a lower Beta typically implies less market risk, while a higher Beta typically implies more market risk.
