Investment returns are shown net of tax and investment expense. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

*The Trustee is required by law to set this objective. It is neither a forecast nor a guarantee of future investment returns. It is anticipated that the CPI objective should be achieved over the long term. However, due to the volatile nature of investment markets and the lack of direct linkage between market returns and inflation, there may be periods when investment returns are not above the objective.
