Dynamic Funds(R) launches DynamicEdge Defensive Portfolio and DynamicEdge Conservative Class Portfolio

TORONTO, Feb. 28, 2012 /CNW/ - Dynamic Funds ("Dynamic"), managed by GCIC Ltd., today announces the addition of DynamicEdge Defensive Portfolio and DynamicEdge Conservative Class Portfolio to the DynamicEdge line-up of managed portfolios. The two new DynamicEdge Portfolios have a higher fixed-income allocation than existing DynamicEdge Portfolios and are intended to provide financial advisors with broader asset allocation choices for their clients.

DynamicEdge Portfolios offer one ticket access to a broad range of Dynamic mutual funds, diversified by asset class, geographic region, investment style, and market capitalization. Today's fund launch coincides with a further diversification of the fixed-income component of certain existing DynamicEdge Portfolios to allow them to take better advantage of Dynamic's comprehensive line-up of fixed-income funds.

In addition to providing product options for investors who prefer a fixed mix of equities and fixed-income securities, the DynamicEdge line-up includes DynamicEdge Progressive Portfolios (previously DynamicEdge Target Date Portfolios) for those seeking investments that become more conservative over time. The DynamicEdge Portfolio line-up includes:
