HOW RISKY IS IT?
The value of the model can go down as well as up. You could lose money. One way to gauge risk is to look at how much a fund's returns change over time. This is called “volatility.” In general, investments with higher volatility will have returns that change over time. They typically have a greater chance of losing money and may have a greater chance of higher returns. Investments with lower volatility tend to have returns that change less over time, and typically have lower returns and a lower chance of losing money.
Qube has rated this model as “medium risk”. This rating is based on how much the Fund's returns have changed from year to year. It doesn't tell you how volatile the Fund will be in the future. The rating can change over time. A fund with a low risk rating can still lose money. Like most mutual funds this investment model does not have any guarantees. You may not get back the amount of money you initially invested.
Returns are after trading costs, but before management fees on a model portfolio of $500,000. All returns for a period of more than one year are reported as annualized returns. Reported returns are for the period ending January 1, 2019.
If your account is registered as a pension trust, RRSP, RESP, LIF or RRIF, you only pay tax on withdrawals from the account. Otherwise, you'll pay income tax on any money you make on your investments. How much you pay depends on the tax laws in the Province in which you live. Interest, dividends and other distributions in a non-registered account are included in your taxable income whether you withdraw them in cash or have them reinvested in the model.
