TORONTO, June 21 /CNW/ - Claymore Investments, Inc. is pleased to
announce the launch of the Claymore CorePortfolio(TM) Series of ETFs,
introducing the first 2 Global Balanced ETFs: the Claymore Global Balanced
Income ETF (TSX: CBD) and the Claymore Global Balanced Growth ETF (TSX: CBN),
to begin trading today on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX).
Claymore CorePortfolio(TM) Series is the first Exchange Traded Fund (ETF)
asset allocation solution to exclusively use ETFs to create efficient,
balanced and diversified portfolios tailored to specific investment goals. The
Claymore CorePortfolio(TM) Series may be considered a starting point for a
large portfolio or the core holding in a smaller investment portfolio.
Each Claymore CorePortfolio(TM) Series of ETFs provide a diversified
portfolio designed to track indices with specific investment goals in mind.
Currently there are two Funds available in the series:
- The Claymore Global Balanced Income ETF's (TSX: CBD) underlying Index
seeks to generate a high level of current income with long-term
capital appreciation potential.
- The Claymore Global Balanced Growth ETF's (TSX: CBN) underlying Index
seeks to balance strong long-term capital appreciation potential and
current income with a bias toward capital appreciation.
"These two ETFs are truly revolutionary for the Canadian and Global
market. We are launching for the Canadian market the first ever low fee, ETF
portfolio products, which may be used as core portfolio holdings for suitable
investors" said Som Seif. "Investors looking for a simple, easy to use core
portfolio solution, which will dynamically invest in global equities, Canadian
fixed income as well as real estate securities, while maintaining the asset
allocation and income and growth objectives. Mutual fund wrap programs have
seen significant growth in investment over the past few years and these Wrap
ETFs bring a low cost alternative to the market."
