the addition of a new equity mandate, IG Putnam Low Volatility U.S.
Equity Fund and Class, and an enhancement to its product offering in
Investors Group Corporate Class™, Investors Dividend Class, which
emulates the popular Investors Dividend Fund. Both are now available
IG Putnam Low Volatility U.S. Equity Fund and Class
IG Putnam Low Volatility U.S. Equity Fund aims to provide long-term capital growth by investing primarily in U.S.
equity securities, usually across all sectors, while seeking to provide
lower volatility over a full market cycle. The Class initially intends
to invest primarily in units of the Fund, but may invest in other
Investors Group funds, and/or directly in equity securities.
Investors Dividend Class
Investors Dividend Class seeks to obtain above-average income yield on its investments, protect
the value of its investments, and achieve long-term capital
appreciation consistent with the achievement of its first two
objectives by initially investing primarily in units of Investors
Dividend Fund. However, it may invest in other Investors Group fund(s),
and/or directly in equity securities and/or fixed income securities.
Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may
be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the prospectus
before investing. Mutual funds are not guaranteed, their values change
frequently and past performance may not be repeated. The Fund and
Classes are distributed across Canada by Investors Group Financial
Services Inc., (in Quebec, a financial services firm), and Investors
Group Securities Inc. (in Quebec, a firm in financial planning.)
