OTTAWA, Feb. 25 /CNW/ - Tradex Management Inc. (TMI), the manager of Tradex Bond Fund (the Fund), today announced a change to the portfolio manager of the Fund. Effective March 1, 2011 Foyston, Gordon & Payne Inc. (FGP) will replace TD Asset Management as the portfolio manager for the Fund.

TMI, in its capacity as Manager of the Fund, also announced the intention to hold a Special Meeting of the unitholders of the Fund on April 27, 2011.

The revised investment objective to be proposed to unitholders is as follows:

"The investment objective is to achieve a combination of income and long-term capital preservation by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of investment grade Canadian bonds.

The average term to maturity of the bond portfolio must be greater than three years."

Assuming the change in investment objectives is approved by a majority of the unitholders represented at the Special Meeting, the change in investment objectives will become effective immediately following the Special Meeting.
