9 A tailored portfolio strategically engineered for you Our portfolio recommendations are supported by a widely recognized team of accredited investment professionals. The Private Client Managed Portfolios program offers you two levels of expertise. CI Investment Consulting is an in-house group of investment professionals who play an active role in the design and management of the Private Client portfolios. The CI Investment Consulting team combines its portfolio construction expertise with comprehensive research and recommendations from State Street Global Advisors, a world leader in asset allocation, to create a portfolio tailored to your personal investment strategy. The team is also responsible for ongoing due diligence and overall program maintenance. Our proprietary program for the selection and monitoring of managers, as well as the team s portfolio-building techniques, incorporate a best practices approach to ensure the managers adhere to their investment mandates. As asset allocation specialists, State Street Global Advisors calculates asset mixes that offer the highest expected return for each level of risk. The key inputs into this process are State Street Global Advisors asset class forecasts. Their forecasts focus on analyzing historical data spanning numerous market environments, and are adjusted for any sustainable changes observed within current market environments by taking into account factors such as interest rates, inflation, and productivity expectations for countries around the world. With US$2.1 trillion* in assets under management, 28 offices worldwide and more than 2,400 employees, State Street Global Advisors is one of the largest investment management companies in the world, operating in more than 100 global markets. * As at June 30, CI Investment Consulting s rigorous process is comparable to those used by Canada s top consulting firms for large institutional investors. The team oversees approximately $14 billion of investments on behalf of clients.

10 Strategic asset allocation and professional money management Your personalized portfolio incorporates many components. Two major components that attribute to its performance are the strategic asset allocation of the portfolio in other words, the mix of asset classes and the portfolio managers who manage them. As an investor, you want to know that the professionals managing your money are among the best. CI Investment Consulting brings together a large selection of affiliated and institutionally recognized portfolio managers, chosen for their leadership in their mandates and for the value they add to your portfolio. Using strategic asset allocation and regular rebalancing to produce stable returns over time, we make sure your portfolio remains true to your goals. It is well diversified No single investment is right for every point in time. A properly diversified portfolio is needed to help capture gains from asset classes that are performing well, while limiting exposure to those that are underperforming. Private Client Managed Portfolios brings you the diversification benefits of strategic asset allocation across 17 mandates within 11 separate asset classes. Your portfolio also includes diversification by country, market capitalization, industry sector and investment style. We monitor the managers to ensure they continue to be the best choice Our ongoing evaluation of the managers against strict criteria ensures that they adhere to their defined investment mandate. The managers must invest according to the investment approach for which they were hired and deliver consistent risk-adjusted performance. Tactical portfolio management Our portfolio managers, through their specialized mandates, have the discretion and opportunities to add value to your portfolio using day-to-day tactical actions through stock selection and sector allocation. We keep you on target We continuously monitor your portfolio to ensure that your asset allocation remains appropriate. If any part of your portfolio deviates from its target allocation by more than 10%, we take appropriate steps to bring it back in line to its target weight. Regular rebalancing helps you achieve better risk-adjusted long-term returns because it automatically leverages the discipline of buying low and selling high by realigning your assets from those that have performed exceptionally well to other areas of your portfolio that have lagged.

13 Tax efficiency and flexibility For investments held outside a registered plan, tax efficiency is a critical issue. Taxes reduce the returns on your portfolio and your investment income. The Private Client Managed Portfolios program offers you tax-effective investment strategies to help minimize your tax bill. tax-wise investing across family accounts With your registered and non-registered assets being taxed differently, we strategically allocate your investments between the accounts across your portfolio to give you the greatest tax efficiency. In addition, your non-registered account fees may be tax deductible, offering you added tax effectiveness within your portfolio. tax-wise investing with Corporate Class All investment mandates in the Private Client Managed Portfolios program are available in our Corporate Class structure, an innovation that gives you the flexibility to make investment decisions on your non-registered assets without being affected by tax concerns. The Corporate Class structure allows you to remain true to your own investment profile, while increasing the long-term after tax growth of your portfolio. Corporate Class offers you three primary benefits 1. Switch or Rebalance You can switch or rebalance among Corporate Class mandates without triggering capital gains or losses. A taxable event only occurs when you redeem from the Corporate Class structure. All of the Private Client pools representing 17 mandates across 11 asset classes are available as Corporate Class shares. Income Canadian Switch between funds Specialty Global

14 2. Defer and Minimize You can defer and minimize tax payments given the low distribution payout policy, and the ability to control the timing of capital gains and capital losses. 3. Receive You can receive tax-efficient capital gains or Canadian dividends from traditional income mandates. By reducing the taxes on your portfolio, our Corporate Class structure enables you to increase after-tax returns, without taking on additional risk. The chart below compares in two ways the value of a $250,000 investment compounding at 6% annual capital appreciation and subject to a marginal tax rate of 45%. $1,500,000 $1,200,000 Corporate Class Investment Pool Trust $1,435,872 After taxes $1,169,051 $900,000 $977,500 $600,000 $300,000 $0 1 year 5 year 10 year 15 year 20 year 25 year 30 year Assumptions An investment inside Corporate Class with annual rebalancing and when tax is paid upon redemption; and outside Corporate Class when rebalanced and taxed annually. The rate return is used only to illustrate the effects of compound growth and is not intended to reflect future values of the funds or return on investment in the Private Client Managed Portfolios. The growth assumptions do not take into consideration management fees or optional charges that would have reduced returns.

15 Tax-wise withdrawals with T-Class Private Client Managed Portfolios gives you the flexibility to generate sustainable, tax-effective cash flow from your non-registered investments without sacrificing the potential for growth or choice of investments through our T-Class platform. with t-class, you Can: Generate 100% tax-free cash flow from your portfolio. T-Class payments are in the form of return of capital, which results in higher after-tax cash flow than with a conventional systematic withdrawal plan. Return of capital distibutions will reduce the adjusted cost base or ACB of an investment. Over time, the ACB may fall to zero, in which case the payments from T-Class will be treated as capital gains which are still taxed at favourable rates. Customize your payments to fit your needs by selecting a percentage or a fixed dollar amount per month. Your after-tax income can vary significantly depending on the nature of the payment. The chart below shows the difference in the after-tax value of $100,000 in cash flow from interest, dividends, capital gains and return of capital. $120,000 $100,000 $90,000 $60,000 $55,000 $45,000 $74,000 $78,000 Net Taxes paid $30,000 $26,000 $22,000 $0 Interest Income Dividend Income Capital Gains Return of Capital *Assumes a marginal tax rate of 45% for interest income, 26% for dividend income and 22% for capital gains.
