In identifying high quality securities, J.P. Morgan looks for profitable companies with sustainable earnings and disciplined management. In identifying securities that have strong momentum, J.P. Morgan looks for securities which have prices and/or earnings that have been increasing and that J.P. Morgan believes will continue to increase.

Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the prospectus before investing. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in share value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any security holder that would have reduced returns. The rates of return are used only to illustrate the effects of the compound growth rate and are not intended to reflect future values of the investment fund or returns on investment in the investment fund. Mutual funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.
The payment of distributions for Dividend and the Return of Capital should not be confused with a mutual fund’s performance, rate of return or yield. If distributions paid by a mutual fund are greater than the performance of the fund, then the investment will decline. Distributions paid as a result of capital gains realized by a mutual fund and income and dividends earned by a fund are taxable in the investor’s hands in the year they are paid. For Return of Capital, the adjusted cost base will be reduced by the amount of any returns of capital. If the adjusted cost base goes below zero, then investors will have to pay capital gains tax on the amount below zero.
NGAM Canada LP (the “Manager”) currently reduces or absorbs all or any portion of the management fee and/or operating expenses of the Fund and can terminate the reduction or absorption at any time. The Manager expects to continue to absorb these fees or expenses until such time as the Fund is of sufficient size to reasonably absorb all fees and expenses. The MER for the Natixis U.S. Growth Class, Dividend, Series A would be 3.37% if the Manager had not reduced or absorbed these expenses.
On June 6, 2014, NexGen North American Growth Tax Managed and NexGen North American Small/Mid Cap Tax Managed Fund, both funds previously offered by NGAM Canada LP, were merged into NexGen U.S. Growth Tax Managed Fund.
