July 20, 2015

Plan sponsors may wish to consider whether this investment news has any implications for the investment options available within their plans. Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada purchases units of the fund listed below, which is established as a segregated fund in accordance with the Insurance Companies Act (Canada).

In May 2015, Invesco Canada Ltd. (Invesco) provided Morningstar® with revised benchmark returns for the Invesco Global Real Estate Fund (the Fund) for the months of February and April 2015.  The Fund’s benchmark is FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Developed Real Estate (CAD).  Invesco attributed the error to an exchange rate calculation made by a data supplier. Invesco has since changed data suppliers to assure the same mistake does not happen in the future.

The Invesco Global Real Estate Fund's returns have always been reported correctly; only the Fund's benchmark returns have been revised.

Revised benchmarks are available on the Plan Sponsor and Plan Member Services website and on Morningstar.
