This example assumes that:(i) you invest $1,000 in units of the Fund for the timeperiods indicated; (ii) your investment has an annual 5%return; and (iii) the Funds MER for the Series units duringthe 10-year period remains the same as that incurred in itslast financial year.

    Institutional Series $10.87 $34.25 $ 60.04 $136.66
