WINNIPEG, June 23 /CNW/ - Investors Group has announced proposed changes
to the investment mandates for Investors Short Term Capital Yield Class(*) and
Investors Capital Yield Class(*).
The proposed change will broaden the mandates to enhance the ability of
each Class to generate an investment return for shareholders similar to a
Canadian fixed income fund by removing the requirement that they invest
primarily in equities and forward contracts. This change is intended to ensure
that each Class is more stable and less susceptible to disruptions in the
equity, credit and interest rate markets.
These changes require securityholder approval. Securityholders of record
(as of June 26, 2009(xx)) holding shares of Investors Short Term Capital Yield
Class and/or Investors Capital Yield Class will receive a Notice of Meeting,
Proxy Form and Management Information Circular detailing the changes.
Securityholder meetings are scheduled for August 13, 2009. If approved, these
changes are expected to occur on or about September 1, 2009.
(*) This mutual fund is a separate class of shares issued by Investors
Group Corporate Class Inc.
(xx) If you acquire shares after June 26, 2009 in either of these
Classes, you may be entitled to vote, provided you establish

days before your Class' meeting, to be included in the list of
securityholders of that Class for purposes of voting at your
