Our portfolio benchmarks:

EPGP: MSCI World Index is a broad-based, market-capitalization-weighted index comprising equity securities available in developed markets globally. The index was chosen for being a widely used benchmark of the global equity market.

EPCP: S&P/TSX Composite Index is a market-capitalization-weighted index comprising the largest and most widely held stocks traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The index was chosen for being a widely used benchmark of the Canadian equity market.

EPGIP: 60% MSCI World Index/40% ICE BofA Canada Broad Market Index. ICE BofA Canada Broad Market Index tracks the performance of publicly traded investment-grade debt denominated in Canadian dollars and issued in the Canadian domestic market. The blended benchmark was chosen because the MSCI World Index is a widely used benchmark for the global equity market and the ICE BofA Canada Broad Market Index is representative of fixed-income opportunities consistent with the Portfolio’s mandate.

EPCIP: 60% S&P/TSX Composite Index/40% ICE BofA Canada Broad Market Index. The blended benchmark was chosen because the S&P/TSX Composite Index is a widely used benchmark of the Canadian equity market and the ICE BofA Canada Broad Market Index is representative of fixed-income opportunities consistent with the Portfolio’s mandate.

We manage our Portfolios independently of the indexes we use as long-term performance comparisons. Differences including security holdings and geographic/sector allocations may impact comparability and could result in periods when our performance differs materially from the index. Additional factors such as credit quality, issuer type and yield may impact fixed-income comparability from the index.
