The indices cited are widely accepted benchmarks for investment performance within their relevant regions, sectors or asset class, represent non-managed investment portfolios, and are not necessarily indicative of future investment returns.
XIII. Independent Views
A purchase of securities with borrowed money involves greater risk than a purchase using cash only. The extent of that risk depends on the circumstances of the investor and the type of investment purchased. If cash is used to pay for the securities purchase in full, the percentage gain or loss on the investment will equal the percentage increase or decrease in the value of the securities. The purchase of securities using borrowed money magnifies the gain or loss on the cash invested. This effect is called leveraging.
An investor should also be aware of the terms of a loan used to purchase securities. The lender may require that the amount outstanding on the loan not rise above an agreed percentage of the market value of the securities. In these circumstances, the investor must pay down the loan or sell the securities to return the loan amount to the agreed percentage. If the investor does not have enough cash, the investor must sell securities, even at a loss, to provide money to reduce the loan.
Money is also required to pay interest on the loan. Investors who borrow money to purchase securities should have adequate financial resources available to pay interest and reduce the loan if necessary.
XIV. Forward-Looking Statements
Views expressed regarding a particular company, security, industry or market sector are the views of only that speaker/author as of the time expressed and do not necessarily represent the views of Mackenzie. Any such views are subject to change at any time based upon markets and other conditions and Mackenzie disclaims any responsibility to update such views. These views are not a recommendation to buy or sell and may not be relied on as investment advice and, because investment decisions for Mackenzie funds are based on numerous factors, may not be relied on as an indication of trading intent on behalf of any Mackenzie fund.
Speculation or stated beliefs about future events, such as market and economic conditions, company or security performance, upcoming product offerings or other projections are “forward-looking statements”. These forward-looking statements represent the beliefs of the speaker/author and do not necessarily represent the views of Mackenzie. General business, market, economic and political conditions could cause actual results to differ materially from what the speaker/author presently anticipates or projects.
This Website may contain forward-looking statements which reflect our current expectations or forecasts of future events. Forward-looking statements include statements that are predictive in nature, depend upon or refer to future events or conditions, or include words such as “expects”, “anticipates”, “intends”, “plans”, “believes”, “estimates”, “preliminary”, “typical”, and other similar expressions. In addition, these statements may relate to future corporate actions, future financial performance of a fund or a security and their future investment strategies and prospects. Forward-looking statements are inherently subject to, among other things, risks, uncertainties and assumptions which could cause actual events, results, performance or prospects to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, these forward-looking statements. These risks, uncertainties and assumptions include, without limitation, general economic, political and market factors in North America and internationally, interest and foreign exchange rates, the volatility of global equity and capital markets, business competition, technological change, changes in government regulations, changes in tax laws, unexpected judicial or regulatory proceedings, catastrophic events and the ability of Mackenzie to attract or retain key employees. The foregoing list of important risks, uncertainties and assumptions is not exhaustive. Please consider these and other factors carefully and not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.
The forward-looking information contained on this Website is current only as of the date the statement was made. There should not be an expectation that such information will in all circumstances be updated, supplemented or revised whether as a result of new information, changing circumstances, future events or otherwise.
You acknowledge and agree that Mackenzie may restrict, suspend or terminate your access to, and use of, all or any part of this Website, including any links to third party websites, at any time, with or without cause, including, without limitation, any breach of the terms of the Legal Notices set out herein, in Mackenzie’s absolute discretion and without prior notice or liability.
