Sun Life Milestone Funds Guarantee
Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the prospectus before investing. Mutual fund values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. Mutual fund values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. Mutual funds are not generally guaranteed, although the Sun Life Milestone Funds benefit from the guarantee described below.
We have structured each Sun Life Milestone Fund so that it will have sufficient assets to pay the Guaranteed Value per unit on its respective maturity date. If the net asset value per unit on the maturity date of a Sun Life Milestone Fund is less than the Guaranteed Value per unit, then Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada, as sub-advisor to the Sun Life Milestone Funds, ("Sun Life", or the "guarantor") has agreed to pay the shortfall to the Sun Life Milestone Fund. Any shortfall payment is subject to the financial health and creditworthiness of Sun Life.
The respective maturity dates for the Sun Life Milestone Funds is June 30 of the year in the corresponding fund's name. The maturity date for a Sun Life Milestone Fund may be accelerated in certain circumstances, in which case an accelerated Guaranteed Value will be calculated. In such a case, the applicable Sun Life Milestone Fund will pay the greater of the net asset value per unit on the accelerated maturity date and the net present value per unit of the Guaranteed Value.
If you redeem your securities of the Sun Life Milestone Funds prior to their respective maturity dates, your redemption will be processed at the current net asset value per security, less any applicable redemption fees, and you will not benefit from the Guaranteed Value at maturity.

About the Lipper/BARRON'S Fund Survey
BARRON'S rankings are based on asset-weighted returns in five categories — US equity funds; world equity funds (including international and global portfolios); mixed equity funds (which invest in stocks, bonds, and other securities); taxable bond funds, and tax-exempt funds — as calculated by Lipper. BARRON'S did not include sales charges in calculating returns. Each fund's return was measured against those of all funds in its Lipper category, resulting in a percentile ranking which was then weighted by asset size, relative to the fund family's other assets in its general classification. To qualify for Lipper/BARRON'S Fund Survey, a group must have had at least three funds in Lipper's general US-stock category, as well as one in the world equity category, which combines global and international funds. They also must have had at least one mixed-equity fund which holds stocks and bonds, at least two taxable-bond funds, and one tax-exempt offering.
