    Claymore CorePortfolio(TM) Series is the first Exchange Traded Fund (ETF)
asset allocation solution to exclusively use ETFs to create efficient,
balanced and diversified portfolios tailored to specific investment goals. The
Claymore CorePortfolio(TM) Series may be considered a starting point for a

portfolio designed to track indices with specific investment goals in mind.
Currently there are two Funds available in the series:

    -   The Claymore Global Balanced Income ETF's (TSX: CBD) underlying Index
        seeks to generate a high level of current income with long-term
        capital appreciation potential.
    -   The Claymore Global Balanced Growth ETF's (TSX: CBN) underlying Index
        seeks to balance strong long-term capital appreciation potential and
        current income with a bias toward capital appreciation.

    "These two ETFs are truly revolutionary for the Canadian and Global
market. We are launching for the Canadian market the first ever low fee, ETF
portfolio products, which may be used as core portfolio holdings for suitable
investors" said Som Seif. "Investors looking for a simple, easy to use core
portfolio solution, which will dynamically invest in global equities, Canadian
fixed income as well as real estate securities, while maintaining the asset
allocation and income and growth objectives. Mutual fund wrap programs have
