TORONTO, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - UBS Global Asset Management (Canada) Inc., as manager of the UBS Global Allocation Trust ("GAT" or the "Fund") would like to take this opportunity to inform unitholders that at a special meeting of the unitholders of GAT held on May 15, 2008, the unitholders voted for the expansion and optimization of the guidelines of GAT including approving the use of related funds when the investment would represent in excess of 10% of invested assets so long as there were no additional fees being paid to the manager. In this regard, as the GAT fund has further shrunk in size, in order to maintain the global diversification of the fund and to maintain the low fees of the Fund, the GAT will invest 100% of its assets in another fund using the same investment model (UBS (Canada) Global Allocation Fund ("GAF") - an 81-102 open ended mutual fund managed by UBS Global Asset Management (Canada) Inc.) The GAF Fund also has the same investment strategies of: (i) active global asset allocation across seven asset classes of global stocks and bonds; (ii) active security selection, based on a price/intrinsic value methodology; and (iii) an active global currency overlay.

Both the GAF and GAT's relative performance objective is to outperform the Global Securities Market Index (''GSMI''), hedged to Canadian dollars, over moving 4 year periods. The GSMI is produced internally from generally available indices and is a blended index incorporating percentages of various indices across certain capital markets.

UBS Global Asset Management (Canada) Inc. continues to believe that the strategy utilized by both the GAT and the GAF is an excellent way to achieve global diversification.
