Benchmark History

International Equity Benchmark:

Mawer International Equity Benchmark History (changes made prospectively):

Jan 1988: MSCI EAFE (net)
Oct 2016: MSCI ACWI ex-USA (net)

Rationale for Change: MSCI ACWI (net) excluding US Index is a better representation of the mandate in our opinion. For example, the past benchmark does not include Emerging Markets whereas the fund has holdings in these markets consistent with its prospectus and investment policy statement.

Benchmark returns are rebalanced on a monthly basis.

Global Equity Benchmark:

Mawer Global Equity Benchmark History (changes made prospectively):

Oct: 2009: MSCI World (net)
Oct 2016: MSCI ACWI (net)

Rationale for Change: MSCI ACWI (net) Index is a better representation of the mandate in our opinion. Past benchmark does not include Emerging Markets whereas the fund has holdings in these markets consistent with its prospectus and investment policy statement. 

Benchmark returns are rebalanced on a monthly basis.

Global Small Cap Benchmark:

Mawer Global Small Cap Benchmark History (changes made prospectively):

Oct 2007: Russell Global Small Cap 
Oct 2016: MSCI ACWI Small Cap (net) Total Return index

Rationale for Change: MSCI ACWI Small Cap (Net) Index is consistent with using MSCI benchmarks in other asset classes outside of Canada and the United States. In addition, the MSCI ACWI Small Cap (Net) Index follows the Global Investment Classification Standards (GICS) whereas the Russell Global Small Cap Index does not.

Benchmarks returns are rebalanced on a monthly basis.

New Canada Fund Benchmark:

Mawer New Canada Benchmark History (changes made prospectively):

Jan 1988: BMO Weighted Small Cap (Blended)
Oct 2016: S&P/TSX Small Cap

Rationale for Change: S&P/TSX Small Cap Index is a better benchmark in our opinion. For example, it provides better comparability, liquidity and a more readily available data set.

Benchmark returns are rebalanced on a monthly basis.

Internal Global Balanced Benchmark:

Mawer Global Balanced Benchmark History (changes made prospectively):

July 2013: 5% FTSE Canada 91 Day Treasury Bill, 35% FTSE Canada Universe Bond, 60% MSCI World Net (Cdn$)
Aug 2013: MSCI World Net (Cdn $) returns is used to calculate the blended benchmark from inception. Previously, MSCI World Gross (Cdn $) was used.
Oct 2015: 20% FTSE Canada Universe Bond, 20% FTSE WGBI, 60% MSCI World Net (Cdn$)
Oct 2016: 20% FTSE Canada Universe Bond, 20% FTSE WGBI, 60% MSCI ACWI (net)
June 2021: 5% FTSE Canada 91 Day TBill Index, 35% FTSE Canada Universe Bond, 60% MSCI ACWI (Net)

Rationale for Change: Because the benchmarks for the Mawer Global Balanced Fund are based on those of the underlying funds, the internal Global Balanced benchmark changes accordingly.

Mawer Global Equity Benchmark History (changes made prospectively):

Oct: 2009: MSCI World (net)
Oct 2016: MSCI ACWI (net)

Rationale for Change: MSCI ACWI (net) Index is a better representation of the mandate in our opinion. Past benchmark does not include Emerging Markets whereas the fund has holdings in these markets consistent with its prospectus and investment policy statement.)

Oct 2015: 5% 91 Day Treasury Bill, 30% FTSE TMX Canada Universe Bond, 5% FTSE WGBI, 15% S&P/TSX Composite, 7.5% BMO Small Cap (blended), 15% S&P 500, 15% MSCI EAFE (net), 7.5% Russell Global Small Cap
Oct 2016: 5% 91 Day Treasury Bill, 30% FTSE TMX Canada Universe Bond, 5% FTSE WGBI, 15% S&P/TSX Composite, 7.5% S&P/TSX Small Cap, 15% S&P 500, 15% MSCI ACWI ex-USA (net), 7.5% ACWI Small Cap (net)
June 2021: 5% FTSE Canada 91 Day TBill Index, 35% FTSE Canada Universe Bond, 15% S&P/TSX Composite, 7.5% S&P/TSX Small Cap, 15% S&P 500, 15% MSCI ACWI ex-USA (net), 7.5% MSCI ACWI Small Cap (net)

Rationale for Change: Changes were made to underlying asset class benchmarks. Because the benchmarks for the Mawer Balanced Fund are based on those of the underlying funds, the internal Balanced benchmark changes accordingly.

Mawer International Equity Benchmark History (changes made prospectively):

Jan 1988: MSCI EAFE (net)
Oct 2016: MSCI ACWI ex-USA (net) 

Rationale for Change: MSCI ACWI (net) excluding US Index is a better representation of the mandate in our opinion. For example, the past benchmark does not include Emerging Markets whereas the fund has holdings in these markets consistent with its prospectus and   investment policy statement.

Mawer New Canada Benchmark History (changes made prospectively):

Jan 1988: BMO Weighted Small Cap (Blended)
Oct 2016: S&P/TSX Small Cap

Rationale for Change: S&P/TSX SmallCap Index is a better benchmark in our opinion. For example, it provides better comparability, liquidity and a more readily available data set.

Mawer Global Small Cap Benchmark History (changes made prospectively):

Oct 2007: Russell Global Small Cap 
Oct 2016: ACWI Small Cap (net)

Rationale for Change: MSCI ACWI Small Cap (Net) Index is consistent with using MSCI benchmarks in other asset classes outside of Canada and the United States. In addition, the MSCI ACWI Small Cap (Net) Index follows the Global Investment Classification Standards (GICS) whereas the Russell Global Small Cap Index does not.
