8 NOTES TO THE ANNUAL FINANCIAL STATEMENTS MARCH 31, ORGANIZATION OF THE FUND, FISCAL PERIODS AND GENERAL INFORMATION (a) Organization of the Fund The Fund is organized as an open-ended mutual fund trust established under the laws of Manitoba and governed by a Declaration of Trust. The address of the Fund s registered office is 447 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The Fund is authorized to issue an unlimited number of securities of multiple series. If issued, Series DC, F, P, S and Z securities are only available for purchase by other Investors Group Funds or other qualified investors. All series generally share in the operations of the Fund on a pro rata basis except for items that can be specifically attributed to one or more series. Distributions for each series may vary, partly due to the differences in expenses between the series. (b) Financial Periods The Statements of Financial Position are presented as at March 31, 2015, March 31, 2014, and April 1, The Statements of Comprehensive Income, Statements of Changes in Financial Position and Statements of Cash Flows are for the periods ended March 31, 2015 and The Schedule of Investments is presented as at March 31, Where a Fund or series of a Fund was established during either period, the information for the Fund or series is provided from inception date. (c) General information I.G. Investment Management, Ltd. is the Manager and Trustee of the Fund. I.G. Investment Management, Ltd. and/or I.G. International Management Limited acts as Portfolio Advisor(s) to the Fund. In some cases, I.G. Investment Management (Hong Kong) Limited has been engaged as sub-advisor to provide investment services to the Fund. The Fund is distributed by Investors Group Financial Services Inc. and Investors Group Securities Inc. (collectively, the Distributors). These companies are, indirectly, wholly owned subsidiaries of IGM Financial Inc. IGM Financial Inc. is a subsidiary of Power Financial Corp. and Power Corporation of Canada. Power Financial Corp. also owns a majority of Great-West Lifeco Inc. and its related companies and, therefore, those companies are considered affiliates of the Trustee, the Manager and the Distributors. The Fund may invest in certain securities within the Power Group of Companies, subject to certain governance criteria, and these holdings, as at the end of the period, have been identified on the Schedule of Investments for the Fund. Any transactions during the period were executed through market intermediaries and under prevailing market terms and conditions. 2. BASIS OF PREPARATION AND PRESENTATION These annual financial statements (financial statements) have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). These are the Fund s first annual financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS and accordingly, IFRS 1 First-time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards has been applied. The Fund adopted IFRS on April 1, 2014, as required by Canadian securities legislation and the Canadian Accounting Standards Board. Previously, the Fund prepared its financial statements in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles as defined in Part V of the Chartered Professional Accountants Canada (CPA Canada) Handbook (Canadian GAAP). All IFRS standards in effect at March 31, 2015, have been applied retrospectively and consistently in presenting the Fund s opening IFRS Statement of Financial Position at April 1, 2013 and throughout all periods presented, as if these policies had always been in effect. A summary of the Fund s significant accounting policies under IFRS is presented in Note 3. These financial statements are presented in Canadian dollars, which is the Fund s functional currency, and rounded to the nearest thousand unless otherwise indicated. These financial statements are prepared on a going concern basis using the historical cost basis, except for financial assets and liabilities that have been measured at fair value. These financial statements were authorized for issue by the Manager on June 4, The preparation of these financial statements under IFRS resulted in changes to accounting policies as compared with the most recent annual financial statements prepared in accordance with Canadian GAAP. Notes 11 and 13 disclose the impact of the transition to IFRS on the Fund s reported financial position and financial performance, including the nature and effect of significant changes in accounting policies from those used in the Fund s financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2014 prepared under Canadian GAAP. Standards issued but not yet effective for the current accounting year are described in Note SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (a) Financial Instruments Investments include financial assets and liabilities such as debt and equity securities, openended investment funds and derivatives. The Fund has elected to apply IFRS 9 Financial Instruments (IFRS 9) on adoption of IFRS and has applied the standard retrospectively to April 1, Upon initial recognition, financial instruments are classified as fair value through profit or loss (FVTPL). All financial assets and liabilities are recognized in the Statement of Financial Position when the Fund becomes a party to the contractual requirements of the instrument. Financial instruments are derecognized when the right to receive cash flows from the instrument has expired or the Fund has transferred substantially all risks and rewards of ownership. As such, investment purchase and sale transactions are recorded as of the trade date. Financial instruments are subsequently measured as FVTPL with changes in fair value recognized in the Statement of Comprehensive Income. The cost of investments is based on the weighted average cost of investments and excludes commissions and other portfolio transaction costs, which are separately reported in the Statement of Comprehensive Income. Realized gains and losses on disposition including foreign exchange gains or losses on such investments, are determined based on the average cost of investments. Gains and losses arising from changes in the fair value of the investments are included in the Statement of Comprehensive Income for the period in which they arise. The Fund accounts for its holdings in unlisted open-ended investment funds at FVTPL. The Fund has concluded that unlisted open-ended investment funds in which it invests do not meet the definition of structured entities. The Fund s investment in unlisted open-ended funds, if any, is presented in the Schedule of Investments at fair value which represents the Fund s maximum exposure on these investments. (b) Fair value measurement Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The Fund s valuation policies are as follows: (i) Equity securities, fixed-income securities and other investment funds Fair value for securities listed on a public securities exchange or traded on an over-thecounter market is determined as the last traded market price or close price recorded by the security exchange on which the security is principally traded, where the close price falls within the bid-ask spread of the security. In situations where the last traded market price is not within the bid-ask spread, the Manager selects the point within the bid-ask spread that is most representative of fair value. Investments in securities of another investment fund are valued at the net asset value per security calculated in accordance with the offering documents of such investment fund or as reported by that fund s manager. Unlisted or non-exchange traded securities, or securities for which a last traded market price is unavailable or securities for which market quotations are, in the Manager s opinion, inaccurate, unreliable or not reflective of all available material information, are valued at their estimated fair value, determined by using appropriate and accepted industry valuation techniques including valuation models. The estimated fair value of a security determined using valuation models requires the use of inputs and assumptions based on observable market data including volatility and other applicable rates or prices. In limited circumstances, the estimated fair value of a security may be determined using valuation techniques that are not supported by observable market data. (ii) Futures and swaps contracts Futures and swaps contracts are valued at the gain or loss that would be realized upon closure of the contract. The values for such contracts fluctuate and are best determined at the settlement price established each day by the board of trade or exchange on which the contracts are traded. Margin accounts represent margin deposits held with brokers in respect of open exchangetraded futures and swaps contracts. Any change in the variation margin requirement is settled daily. Margin paid or deposited in respect of futures contracts or swaps is reflected as a receivable at fair value in the Statements of Financial Position. Unrealized gains or losses are reported in the Statements of Comprehensive Income until the Fund closes out the contract or the contract expires. (iii) Forward contracts Forward contracts, including forward currency contracts, are valued at the gain or loss that would arise as a result of closing the position at the reporting date. (iv) Options contracts Premiums received from writing options are included in the Statements of Financial Position as a liability and subsequently adjusted daily to fair value. If a written option expires unexercised, the premium received is recognized as a realized gain. If a written call option is exercised, the difference between the proceeds of the sale plus the value of the premium and the cost of the security is recognized as a realized gain or loss. If a written put option is exercised, the cost of the security acquired is the exercise price of the option less the premium received. (c) Cash and cash equivalents Cash and cash equivalents includes cash on deposit with banks and short term investments that are readily convertible to cash, are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value, and are used by the Fund in the management of short-term commitments. Cash and cash equivalents are reported at fair value which closely approximates their amortized cost due to their nature of being highly liquid and having short terms to maturity. Bank overdraft positions are presented as bank indebtedness in current liabilities in the Statements of Financial Position. (d) Currency All amounts are expressed in Canadian dollars. Foreign currency amounts have been expressed in Canadian dollars on the following bases: (i) Fair value of investments and other assets and liabilities at the rate of exchange at the end of the period. (ii) Income, expenses, purchases and sales of investments at the rate of exchange on the dates of such transactions. (e) Income recognition Interest income from interest bearing investments is recognized using the effective interest method. Dividends are accrued as of the ex-dividend date. Dividend income and distributions from open-ended investment funds are recognized when the Fund s right to receive payment is established which is typically on the ex-dividend or distribution date. Distributions received from income trusts and open-ended investment funds are included in interest income, dividend income or capital gains, as appropriate, based on the best information available to the Manager. Due to the nature of these investments, actual allocations could vary from this information.
9 NOTES TO THE ANNUAL FINANCIAL STATEMENTS MARCH 31, SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued) (f) Securities lending and repurchase transactions The Fund may be permitted to enter into securities lending, repurchase and reverse repurchase transactions as set out in the Fund s Simplified Prospectus. These transactions involve the temporary exchange of securities for collateral with a commitment to deliver the same securities on a future date. Income is earned from these transactions in the form of fees paid by the counterparty and, in certain circumstances, interest paid on cash or securities held as collateral. Income earned from these transactions is recognized on the accrual basis and included in the Statements of Comprehensive Income. All the counterparties have a sufficient, approved credit rating and the value of cash or securities held as collateral must be at least 102% of the fair value of the securities loaned, sold or purchased. The value of securities loaned and collateral received from securities lending as of the end of the periods, if applicable, is disclosed in Note 13. Collateral received is comprised of debt obligations of the Government of Canada and other countries, Canadian provincial and municipal governments, and financial institutions. (g) Redeemable securities The Fund s redeemable securities entitle securityholders the right to redeem their interest in the Fund for cash equal to their proportionate share of the net asset value of the Fund, amongst other contractual rights. These redeemable securities involve multiple contractual obligations on the part of the Fund and therefore meet the criteria for classification as financial liabilities. The Fund s obligation for net assets attributable to securityholders is measured at FVTPL, with fair value being the redemption amount as of the reporting date. (h) Commissions and other portfolio transaction costs (i) (j) Commissions and other portfolio transaction costs are costs incurred to acquire, dispose or otherwise transact financial assets or liabilities. They include fees and commissions paid to agents, exchanges, brokers and dealers, and other intermediaries. Increase (decrease) in net assets attributable to securityholders from operations Increase (decrease) in net assets attributable to securityholders from operations per security for a series in the Statement of Comprehensive Income represents the weighted average increase (decrease) in net assets attributable to securityholders from operations for the series, per security outstanding during the period. Offsetting Financial assets and liabilities are offset and the net amount reported in the Statements of Financial Position only when there is a legally enforceable right to set-off the recognized amounts and there is an intention to settle on a net basis, or to realize the asset and settle the liability simultaneously. In the normal course of business, the Fund enters into various master netting agreements or similar agreements that do not meet the criteria for offsetting in the Statements of Financial Position but still allow for the related amounts to be set off in certain circumstances, such as bankruptcy or termination of the contracts. Note 13 presents the amounts, if any, that are subject to master netting arrangements or other similar agreements and the net impact to the Statements of Financial Position if all such rights were exercised. (k) Mergers (l) The Fund applies the acquisition method of accounting for Fund mergers. Under this method, one of the Funds in each merger is identified as the acquiring Fund, and is referred to as the Continuing Fund, and the other Fund involved in the merger is referred to as the Terminated Fund. This identification is based on the comparison of the relative net asset values of the Funds as well as consideration of the continuation of such aspects of the Continuing Fund as: investment advisors; investment objectives and practices; type of portfolio securities; and management fees and expenses. Future accounting changes Amendment to Applying the Consolidation Exception to Investment Entities In December 2014, the IASB issued a narrow-scope amendment called Investment Entities: Applying the Consolidation Exception amendments to IFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statement, IAS 28 Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures and IFRS 12 Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities. The amendment clarifies the application of the exemption from presenting consolidated financial statements that is available to investments entities under IFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statements. The amendment is effective for annual periods beginning on or after January 1, The Fund is assessing the implications, if any, on the Fund s financial statements. 4. USE OF ACCOUNTING JUDGMENTS AND ESTIMATES The preparation of financial statements in accordance with IFRS requires judgments, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the reporting date and the reported amounts of income and expenses during the period. However, existing circumstances and assumptions may change due to market changes or circumstances arising beyond the control of the Fund. Such changes are reflected in the assumptions when they occur. The following discusses the most significant accounting judgments and estimates made in preparing the financial statements: (a) Functional Currency The Fund s functional and presentation currency is the Canadian dollar, which is the currency considered to most faithfully represent the economic effects of the Fund s underlying transactions, events and conditions taking into consideration the manner in which securities are issued and redeemed and how returns and performance by the Fund are measured. (b) Classification of financial instruments In classifying and measuring financial instruments held by the Fund, the Manager is required to make significant judgments in determining the most appropriate classification in accordance with IFRS 9. The Manager has assessed the Fund s business model, the manner in which all financial assets and financial liabilities are managed and performance evaluated as a group on a fair value basis, and concluded that FVTPL in accordance with IFRS 9 provides the most appropriate measurement and presentation of the Fund s financial assets and financial liabilities. (c) Estimations of Fair Value The Fund may, from time to time, hold financial instruments that are not quoted in active markets, such as unlisted securities or private securities. To estimate fair value, the Manager uses valuation techniques that make use of observable data, to the extent practicable. The Fund categorizes the fair value of its assets and liabilities into three categories, which are differentiated based on the observable nature of the inputs and extent of estimation required. Level 1 Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Level 2 Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability either directly or indirectly. Examples of Level 2 valuations include quoted prices for similar securities, quoted prices on inactive markets and from recognized investment dealers, and the application of factors derived from observable data to non-north American quoted prices in order to estimate the impact of differences in market closing times. The estimated fair values for these securities may be different from the values that would have been used had a ready market for the investment existed. Level 3 Inputs that are not based on observable market data. Various valuation techniques are utilized, depending on each situation. These methods and procedures may include, but are not limited to, performing comparisons with prices of comparable or similar securities, obtaining relevant information from issuers and/or other analytical data relating to the investment, and recent arm s length transactions. Key inputs and assumptions used are usually security specific and may include estimated discount rates, credit risk, volatility, correlations, and future cash flows. Changes in key inputs and assumptions could affect the reported fair value of these financial instruments held by the Fund. The estimated fair values for these securities may be significantly different from the values that would have been used had a ready market for the investment existed. See Note 13 for the fair value classifications of the Fund. (d) Structured entities In determining whether unlisted open-ended investment funds in which the Fund invests, but that it does not consolidate, meet the definition of a structured entity, the Manager is required to make significant judgments about whether the Underlying Funds have the typical characteristics of a structured entity. The Manager has assessed the characteristics of the Underlying Funds and has concluded that they do not meet the definition of a structured entity because the Fund does not have contracts or financing arrangements with the Underlying Funds and does not have an ability to influence the activities of the Underlying Funds or the return it receives from its investment. 5. MANAGEMENT FEES AND OTHER EXPENSES (a) Each series of the Fund will incur expenses that can be specifically attributed to that series. Common expenses of the Fund are allocated across the series of the Fund on a pro rata basis. (b) The Manager provides or arranges for the provision of investment and advisory services for a management fee. See Note 13 for the annual rates paid (as a percent of average assets) by the Fund. (c) The Fund pays the Manager an administration fee and in return the Manager will bear the operating expenses of the Fund, other than certain specified Fund costs. See Note 13 for the annual rates paid (as a percent of average assets) by the Fund. Other Fund costs include taxes (including but not limited to GST/HST and income tax), transaction costs related to the purchase and sale of investments and derivatives, interest and borrowing costs, and Independent Review Committee (IRC) costs. (d) The Fund may pay the Distributors a service fee to compensate them for providing or arranging for the provision of services to the Fund. A portion of the service fee related to Series C and Tc is rebated by the Distributors to the Fund on a quarterly basis as outlined in the Fund s Prospectus. The rebate is distributed as a capital distribution to eligible securityholders and is reinvested in additional Series C or Tc securities of the Fund or another distributing Fund held by the securityholder. See Note 13 for the annual rates paid (as a percent of average assets) by the Fund. (e) The Trustee is responsible for overall direction and management of the affairs of the Fund. See Note 13 for the annual rates paid (as a percent of average assets) to the Trustee by the Fund. (f) An advisory fee is charged by the Distributors for investment advice and administrative services related to Series U and Tu, if issued. The advisory fee is payable monthly directly by investors in Series U and Tu, and not by the Fund. (g) GST/HST paid by the Fund on its expenses is not recoverable. In these financial statements, reference to GST/HST includes QST (Québec sales tax), as applicable. (h) Other expenses are comprised of interest and borrowing charges and other miscellaneous expenses. (i) The Manager may, at its discretion, pay certain expenses of the Fund so the Fund s performance remains competitive; however, there is no assurance that this will occur in the future. Any expenses absorbed by the Manager during the periods have been identified in the Statements of Comprehensive Income.
10 NOTES TO THE ANNUAL FINANCIAL STATEMENTS MARCH 31, INCOME TAXES The Fund qualifies as a mutual fund trust under the provisions of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and, accordingly, is subject to tax on its income including net realized capital gains, which is not paid or payable to its securityholders. The Fund maintains a December year-end for tax purposes. The Fund may be subject to withholding taxes on foreign income. In general, the Fund treats withholding tax as a charge against income for tax purposes. The Fund will distribute sufficient amounts from net income for tax purposes, as required, so that the Fund will not pay income taxes other than refundable tax on capital gains, if applicable. See Note 13 for the losses that were available to offset future income for tax purposes as at the last taxation year-end. The net capital losses can be carried forward indefinitely to reduce future realized capital gains. The non-capital losses may be utilized to reduce taxable income of future years and expire in December of the years indicated. 7. COMMISSIONS AND OTHER PORTFOLIO TRANSACTION COSTS The total brokerage commissions incurred by the Fund in connection with portfolio transactions for the periods, together with other transaction charges, is disclosed in the Statements of Comprehensive Income. Brokerage business is allocated to brokers based on the best net result for the Fund. Subject to this criteria, commissions may be paid to brokerage firms which provide (or pay for) certain services, other than order execution, which may include investment research, analysis and reports, and databases or software in support of these services. Where applicable and ascertainable, the value of third-party services that were paid for by brokers during the periods is disclosed in Note 13. The value of certain proprietary services provided by brokers cannot be reasonably estimated. 8. GUARANTEES AND INDEMNITIES Agreements between the individual members of the Fund s IRC and the Trustee, on behalf of the Fund, provides for the indemnification of each IRC member by the Fund from and against liabilities and costs in respect of any action or suit against the member by reason of being or having been a member of the IRC, provided that the member acted honestly and in good faith with a view to the best interest of the Fund, or, in the case of a criminal or administrative action or proceeding that is enforced by a monetary penalty, that they had reasonable grounds for believing that his/her conduct was lawful. No claims with respect to such occurrences have been made and, as such, no amount has been recorded in these financial statements with respect to these indemnifications. 9. CAPITAL MANAGEMENT The capital structure of the Fund consists of redeemable securities in multiple series. The net capital received by the Fund is managed in accordance with the investment objective and strategies of the Fund and to maintain adequate liquidity to meet securityholder redemption requests. The Fund is not subject to externally imposed capital requirements and has no legal restrictions on the issue or redemption of securities beyond those included in the Fund s prospectus. Securities issued, reinvested and redeemed during the periods are reflected in the Statements of Changes in Financial Position. 10. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT RISK The Fund s investment activities expose it to a variety of financial risks. See the Schedule of Investments for additional information about the securities held by the Fund as at the end of the periods. (a) Liquidity risk The Fund is exposed to daily cash redemptions of redeemable securities. The securities are redeemable on demand at the option of the securityholder at the current net asset value per security. In accordance with securities regulations, the Fund must maintain at least 90% of its assets in liquid investments (i.e. investments that are traded in an active market and can be readily sold). In addition, the Fund retains sufficient cash and short-term investments to maintain adequate liquidity. The Fund also has the ability to borrow up to 5% of its net assets for the purposes of funding redemptions. (b) Currency risk Currency risk is the risk that financial instruments which are denominated or exchanged in a currency other than the Canadian dollar, which is the Fund s functional currency, will fluctuate due to changes in exchange rates. Generally, foreign denominated investments increase in value when the value of the Canadian dollar (relative to foreign currencies) falls. Conversely, when the value of the Canadian dollar rises relative to foreign currencies, the values of foreign denominated investments fall. Note 13 indicates the foreign currencies, if applicable, to which the Fund had significant exposure, including the amount of forward currency contracts in Canadian dollar terms. Other financial assets and liabilities (including dividends and interest receivable, and receivables/payables for investments sold/purchased) that are denominated in foreign currencies do not expose the Fund to significant currency risk. (c) Interest rate risk Interest rate risk arises on interest-bearing financial instruments such as bonds. The Fund is exposed to the risk that the value of interest-bearing financial instruments will fluctuate due to changes in the prevailing levels of market interest rates. Generally, these securities increase in value when interest rates fall and decrease in value when interest rates rise. Cash and cash equivalents and other money market instruments are short term in nature and are not generally subject to significant amounts of interest rate risk. Note 13 summarizes the Fund s exposure, if significant, to interest rate risk. (d) Credit risk Credit risk is the risk that a counterparty to a financial instrument will fail to discharge an obligation or commitment that it has entered into with the Fund. Note 13 summarizes the Fund s exposure, if significant, to credit risk. All transactions in listed securities are settled/paid for upon delivery using approved third-party brokers. The risk of default is considered minimal, as delivery of investments sold by the Fund is only made once the broker has received payment. Payment is made by the Fund on a purchase only once the investments have been received by the broker. The carrying amount of investments represents the maximum credit risk exposure. The carrying amount of other assets also represents the maximum credit risk exposure, as they will be settled in the short term. The Fund may enter into securities lending transactions with counterparties whereby the Fund temporarily exchanges securities for collateral with a commitment by the counterparty to deliver the same securities on a future date. Credit risk associated with these transactions is considered minimal as all counterparties have a sufficient, approved credit rating and the value of cash or securities held as collateral must be at least 102% of the fair value of the investments loaned. (e) Other price risk Other price risk is the risk that the value of financial instruments will fluctuate as a result of changes in market prices (other than those arising from interest rate or currency risk), whether caused by factors specific to an individual investment, its issuer or other factors affecting all instruments traded in a market or market segment. All investments present a risk of loss of capital. The Manager moderates this risk through a careful selection of securities and other financial instruments within the parameters of the investment strategies. Except for certain derivative contracts, the maximum risk resulting from financial instruments is equivalent to their fair value. The maximum risk of loss on certain derivative contracts such as forwards, swaps, options written and futures contracts is equal to their notional values. However, these instruments are generally used within the overall investment management process to manage the risk from the underlying investments and do not typically increase the overall risk of loss to the Fund. Note 13 summarizes the Fund s exposure, if significant, to other price risk. 11. TRANSITION TO IFRS The effect of the transition to IFRS from Canadian GAAP is summarized as follows: (a) Transition elections The only voluntary exemption adopted by the Fund upon transition was the ability to designate financial assets or financial liabilities at FVTPL upon transition to IFRS. All financial assets upon transition were previously carried at fair value under Canadian GAAP as required by Accounting Guideline 18, Investment Companies. (b) Revaluation of investments Under Canadian GAAP, the fair value of investments was generally based on bid prices for long positions and ask prices for short positions. Under IFRS, the fair value of investments is generally measured using last traded market prices, which is consistent with how the daily net asset value per security is measured for securityholder transactions. As a result, on adoption of IFRS, adjustments to the reported fair values of investments were necessary at April 1, 2013 and March 31, Reconciliations of net assets and comprehensive income previously reported under Canadian GAAP to IFRS are disclosed in Note 13. (c) Classification of redeemable securities of the Fund Under Canadian GAAP, the Fund accounted for redeemable securities as equity. Under IFRS, IAS 32 Financial Instruments: Presentation, requires that securities of an entity which include a contractual obligation for the issuer to repurchase or redeem them for cash or another financial asset be classified as a financial liability if certain additional criteria are not met. The Fund s redeemable securities do not meet the criteria in IAS 32 for classification as equity and therefore, have been reclassified as financial liabilities on transition to IFRS. Other than presentation, there was no impact to the net assets of the Fund. (d) Statement of Cash Flows Under Canadian GAAP, the Fund was exempt from providing a Statement of Cash Flows. IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements, requires that a complete set of financial statements include a statement of cash flows for the current and comparative periods, and prepared in accordance with IAS 7 Statement of Cash Flows. (e) Comparative figures Certain prior period comparative amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period s presentation under IFRS.

To assist in managing risk, the Manager also uses internal guidelines that identify the target exposures for each type of risk, maintains a governance structure that oversees the Fund s investment activities and monitors compliance with the Fund s stated investment strategy, internal guidelines and securities regulations. The Fund invests primarily in bonds and debentures of non-canadian issuers.

16 Independent Auditor s Report MARCH 31, 2015 TO THE SECURITYHOLDERS OF INVESTORS GLOBAL BOND FUND (THE FUND ) We have audited the accompanying financial statements of the Fund, which comprise the statements of financial position as at March 31, 2015, March 31, 2014 and April 1, 2013, and the statements of comprehensive income, changes in financial position and cash flows for the periods ended March 31, 2015 and March 31, 2014, as indicated in note 1, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information. Management s Responsibility for the Financial Statements Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards, and for such internal control as management determines is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. Auditor s Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with Canadian generally accepted auditing standards. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, we consider internal control relevant to the entity s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained in our audits is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. Opinion In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Fund as at March 31, 2015, March 31, 2014 and April 1, 2013, and its financial performance and cash flows for the periods ended March 31, 2015 and March 31, 2014, as indicated in note 1, in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards.
