Northwest & Ethical Investments L.P. announces plan to integrate operations platforms and unify fee schedules



    TORONTO, April 6 /CNW/ - Northwest & Ethical Investments L.P. ("NEILP")
today announced that effective April 13, 2009 the operational platforms of
Northwest Funds and The Ethical Funds Company will be integrated onto one
common NEILP platform. Investors will now be able to switch freely between any
of the Northwest Funds, Ethical Funds or Credential Funds managed by NEILP,
provided the fund you want to switch into is qualified for sale in your
province or territory and is available through your dealer.
    On April 13, 2009 NEILP will also be moving to one common fee schedule
across all of our fund families, which means some fees applied to certain
Northwest Funds or Ethical Funds will be modified. Lump sum or pre-authorized
credit (PAC) purchases made on or after April 13, 2009 will be subject to this
new fee schedule.
