Dynamic Funds(R) launches DynamicEdge Target Date Portfolios

TORONTO, April 26 /CNW/ - Dynamic Funds(R) ("Dynamic"), managed by Goodman & Company, Investment Counsel Ltd., today announces the addition to the DynamicEdge line-up of three target date mandates, each available as both a corporate class and trust portfolio (the "Target Date Portfolios").

The DynamicEdge Portfolios now include both target date and fixed asset mix solutions. The new offerings are intended to help financial advisors build more customized portfolios by providing broader asset allocation choices to meet their client's risk tolerance, financial goals and investment timelines. Each Target Date Portfolio trends toward more conservative investments by shifting the emphasis to fixed income securities as the portfolio's target date approaches.
