Caution Regarding Forward-Looking Statements 
This release includes forward-looking statements. 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' or negative versions thereof and 
similar expressions, or future or conditional verbs such as 'may,' 'will,'

While the company considers these factors and assumptions to be reasonable 
based on information currently available, they may prove to be incorrect. 
Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, and 
actual events and results could differ materially from those expressed or 
implied by forward-looking statements due to, but not limited to, important 
risk factors such as level of assets under management, volume of sales and 
redemptions of investment products, performance of investment funds and of 
investment managers and advisors, competitive fee levels for investment 
management products and administration, and competitive dealer compensation 
levels and cost efficiency in our investment management operations, as well as 
interest and foreign-exchange rates, taxation, changes in government 
regulations, unexpected judicial or regulatory proceedings, and the company's 
ability to complete strategic transactions and integrate acquisitions. The 
company cautions that the foregoing list is not exhaustive. The reader is 
cautioned to consider these and other factors carefully and not place undue 
reliance on forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are given 
only as at the date of this release and other than specifically required by 
applicable laws, the company is under no obligation (and expressly disclaims 
any such obligation) to update or alter the forward-looking statements,
