MD Management Limited displays your return using a money-weighted return process, which takes into account the returns you earn on deposits, as well as the returns on your investments.

Your account will be invested in an MD Precision Portfolio or the MD Money Fund.

MD Precision Portfolios are made up of underlying funds and feature a regularly rebalanced structure that keeps your portfolio’s asset allocation on track and helps you achieve your financial goals.

The MD Money Fund is not made up of underlying funds and, therefore, does not need to be rebalanced.

1As of December 2017, the average, asset-weighted management expense ratio (MER) for the Mutual Fund of Funds category was 2.08%. Source: Investor Economics Fee-based Report, Winter 2018.

The graph shows the potential savings from the average management fees, applicable taxes and management expense ratio (MER) for MD ExO Direct (1.17%) relative to an average management expense ratio (MER) of comparable mutual fund categories (2.08%). The potential savings are based on the initial deposit, expected growth rate, investment time horizon, and monthly contributions you selected. The calculation assumes that the initial deposit is made at the beginning of the indicated period, and the same amount is contributed annually until the end of indicated period.

The graph assumes annual compound growth at the selected rate in its calculations.

The expected rate of return is intended to represent the expected returns of your current investment strategy and should not be considered a recommendation. The expected rate of return used is net of inflation.

This information is presented for illustrative purposes only. The expected rate of return and savings are not a guarantee and the actual rate of return from your savings and investments will likely be different.

The total shown for strategic asset allocation or investment mix may not add up to 100% due to rounding.
