Merger benefits

The approved mergers are expected to provide securityholders of the merging funds with the potential for more efficient investment management due to a larger asset base, and generally more comprehensive investment mandates that may result in enhanced diversification and greater portfolio management opportunities.  Overall, it is expected that these elements taken together will result in the potential for improved long-term performance in larger continuing funds. 

Investment objective change

Approved in a separate meeting yesterday was the investment objective change of Investors Managed Yield Class from a specialty fund to a money market fund.  The name of the fund will change to Investors Canadian Money Market Class. Investors Canadian Money Market Class aims to provide a stable current return through exposure to Canadian money market securities by investing in other money market mutual fund(s) and/or directly in money market securities. 

The objective change is expected to take effect on or about May 1, 2015.
