LifePoints Portfolios Now Available Under Deferred Sales Charge Purchase Option



    TORONTO, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - Russell Investments Canada Limited is pleased to
announce that Class B, I-5, I-6 and I-7 units of the LifePoints Portfolios are
now available for purchase under a deferred sales charge purchase option, in
addition to the existing no load, low load and front load purchase options.
    A 10% free yearly redemption entitlement is available for units purchased
under both the deferred sales charge and low load purchase options. The new
deferred sales charge options are offered in the LifePoints Target Allocation
Portfolios.
    "This initiative is designed to give advisors and investors more choice
and flexibility when choosing a purchase option. Advisors will have a full
range of LifePoints purchase options to choose from to best fit their business
strategy and client needs," said David Bullock, Managing Director of Russell
Investments' Distribution & Marketing.
    The competitive redemption fee schedule should help advisors and their
businesses, since it encourages investors to concentrate on staying invested
long-term without punishing them for deciding to exit early if the situation
arises.
