    "CI's strategy is to offer the widest choice of top-ranked portfolio
management teams and we are pleased to retain a manager with the stature and
expertise of Alan Radlo," said Peter W. Anderson, Chief Executive Officer of

as a core investment in my former portfolios.
    "At CI, I am building a team to manage the Cambridge Funds using the
principles and the approach that I have developed and refined over the last 25
years," he said. "I look forward to serving Canadian investors once again."

Investments and will be based in Boston. As CI employees, the Cambridge team
will have the full support of CI's administrative, technology and trading
resources. CI's other in-house portfolio management teams are Signature

more than $10 billion.
