Media Advisory - Interview Opportunity - Too many investment options making your head spin? Consider putting your portfolio on autopilot

    TORONTO, June 10 /CNW/ -

    WHAT:     Maintaining a productive and well balanced investment portfolio
              over the long-term can be a challenge given today's volatile
              market conditions, and exploring the various investment options
              may just make you plain dizzy.

              One of the latest options to be introduced to Canadian
              investors is life cycle funds. Different from regular mutual
              funds, which you can hold until you decide to sell the units,
              life cycle funds have pre-determined end dates and as that date
              approaches - be it in 10, 15 or 25 years - the fund
              automatically adjusts to become more conservative. This
              re-balancing mechanism helps protect the value of the fund as
              it gets closer to maturity.

    WHY:      Whether it's saving for a child's education, a new home or
              retirement, saving for long-term goals doesn't have to be time
              consuming or daunting. Through BMO LifeStage Plus Funds, BMO's
              unique line of life cycle funds, investors get access to the
              only funds in Canada, offered by a bank, to include a daily
              lock-in feature, ensuring investors receive the highest daily
              value during the life of the fund.
