*The Star Rating is as of January 31, 2019 for Series F of the Exemplar Investment Grade Fund. The number of funds within its category is as follows: Canadian Corporate Fixed Income Category: 3 years – 5 stars (77 funds). Morningstar Star Ratings are subject to change monthly. The rating is an objective, quantitative measure of a fund’s historical risk adjusted performance relative to other funds in its category. Only funds with at least a three-year track record are considered. The Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Rating (MRAR), commonly referred to as the Star Rating, relates the risk-adjusted performance of a fund to its peers in the category. Morningstar calculates ratings only for categories with at least 20 funds. To determine a fund's rating, the fund and its peers are ranked by their MRARs. If a fund scores in the top 10% of its fund category, it receives five stars (High); if it falls in the next 22.5%, it receives four stars (Above Average); a place in the middle 35% earns a fund three stars (Neutral or Average); those in the next 22.5% receive two stars(Below Average); and the lowest 10% get one star (Low). Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Ratings are recalculated monthly. For additional resources on the Star Rating and answers to frequently asked questions, see morningstar.ca.
