The inception date of series F of the Fund was July 19, 2010. Manager tenure data from March 1, 2015.

IA Clarington Global Allocation Fund was formerly IA Clarington Global Tactical Income Fund. Quartile rankings are based on fund returns for periods ending June 30, 2018, and are subject to change monthly. The quartiles divide the data into four equal regions. Expressed in terms of rank (1, 2, 3 or 4), the quartile measure shows how well a fund has performed compared to all other funds in its peer group. Peer groups are defined such that mutual funds are ranked only versus other mutual funds that are in the same category. The top 25% of funds (or quarter) are in the first quartile, the next 25% of funds are in the second, and the next group is in the third quartile. The 25% of funds with the poorest performance are in the fourth quartile.

The performance data comparison presented is intended to illustrate the Fund’s historical performance as compared with historical performance of widely quoted market indices. There are various important differences that may exist between the Fund and the stated indices that may affect the performance of each. The benchmark is a blend of Citigroup World Government Bond Index (Currency Hedged) (40%) and MSCI AC World Index (60%). The blended benchmark presented is intended to provide a more realistic representation of the general asset classes in which the Fund invests. The Citigroup World Government Bond Index (or WGBI) (currency hedged) measures the performance of fixed-rate, local currency, investment-grade sovereign bonds. The WGBI is a widely used benchmark that currently comprises sovereign debt from over 20 countries, denominated in a variety of currencies. The WGBI is a broad benchmark providing exposure to the global sovereign fixed income market. The index provides exposure to a broad array of countries. Sub-indices are available in any combination of currency, maturity, and rating. The MSCI AC World Index (MSCI ACWI) is a free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to measure the equity market performance of developed and emerging markets. The MSCI ACWI consists of 46 country indexes comprising 23 developed and 23 emerging market country indexes. The Fund’s market capitalization, geographic, sector and credit quality exposure may differ from that of the benchmark. The Fund’s currency risk exposure may be different than that of the benchmark. The Fund may hold cash while the benchmark does not. Overall, the Fund's bond and equity exposure can differ, because the Fund does not use a fixed ratio similar to the benchmark. It is not possible to invest directly in market indices. The performance comparison is for illustrative purposes only and does not imply future performance.
