Acuity Announces New Funds and Corporate Class Structure



    Offering retail investors more flexibility to enhance returns and manage
    risk

    TORONTO, Sept. 18 /CNW/ - Acuity Funds Ltd. has added a suite of new
mutual funds, a currency-neutral option, and corporate class shares to its
family of retail investment solutions.
    "The strength of Acuity has always been exceptional investment
management, and now we are offering investors an even wider set of
opportunities to leverage that strength. This includes two new funds that
focus on Canadian and EAFE markets, currency-neutral versions of three top
global funds, and the availability of corporate class shares for seven of our
most popular funds," said Ian Ihnatowycz, President and CEO.
    According to Stephen Crawford, Senior Vice President, National Sales,
each of the new Acuity offerings is designed to help investors more
effectively optimize returns and manage risk. "The new Pure Canadian Equity
Fund provides 100% exposure to Canada, which is surprisingly rare among
Canadian Equity Funds. Likewise, the EAFE fund can help investors add highly
focused geographic exposure to their portfolio. The currency neutral funds are
designed to help investors participate in global growth with minimal currency
risk, and the corporate class structure allows investors to rebalance their
portfolios without worrying about triggering taxes."
