For the one-year period ending June 2017, Canadian equity markets posted relatively weaker returns compared with other international markets. This, in turn, led to a higher percentage of active managers outperforming the benchmark, when compared with results from the second half of 2016.

  • Canadian equity: 33.33 per cent of funds outperformed the S&P/TSX Composite, net of fees, at year-end June 2017
  • U.S. equity: 28.57 per cent of funds outperformed the S&P 500 (CAD), net of fees, at year-end June 2017
  • Canadian small/mid-cap equity: 48.39 per cent of funds outperformed the S&P/TSX Completion Index, net of fees, at year-end June 2017
  • Canadian dividend and income equity: 51.43 per cent of funds outperformed the S&P/TSX Dividend Aristocrats Index, net of fees, at year-end June 2017
