The ONE Financial Profit Lock-In & Cashflow Notes, Income Trust LEADERS Class, Series 2 (the "Notes") are linked to a portfolio of 18 income trusts trading on the TSX and five dividend-paying stocks from the S&P/TSX 60 Index(the "Portfolio"). Each of the companies selected for the Portfolio were chosen based on ONE Financial's passive investment methodology called LEADERS (Large-cap Equities with Attractive Distributable Earnings, Re-balanced Systematically) according to size, liquidity, and yield. Since the inception of the Notes, the S&P/TSX 60 is down 8.2%. The price of the Notes will not track the performance of a static portfolio invested since inception of the Notes according to the Portfolio's targeted allocation, and is affected by many inter-related factors including:

  • the Portfolio's "Dynamic Asset Allocation" feature,
  • the performance of each of the indexes in the Portfolio,
  • changes in the level of interest rates,
  • time remaining until the Notes' maturity date, and
  • market demand for the Notes.

The difference between the performance of the Notes and the performance of a static portfolio invested according to the Portfolio's targeted allocation can largely be attributed to the Portfolio's "Dynamic Asset Allocation" feature. This feature is designed to both protect the Portfolio's net asset value (or "NAV") on the downside, and pursue potentially leveraged returns on the upside.

Exposure to the indexes is adjusted regularly and systematically according to a nondiscretionary re-weighting procedure. Generally, as the value of the Portfolio increases, the Portfolio will potentially leverage its investments according to the targeted allocation up to a maximum of 200% of its NAV in order to pursue enhanced returns, and as the value of the Portfolio decreases, it potentially (i) de-leverages its investments in order to protect its NAV, and (ii) if the exposure is less than 100%, reallocates its investments from the indexes to a greater weighting in a BNP notional bond. Although the Portfolio will not directly track the performance of an investment in the underlying indexes according to a static allocation during the term of the Notes, if the Portfolio is expected to provide solid, consistent performance throughout the term, then investors should benefit from the strong potential for leveraged returns at maturity.
