TORONTO, June 2, 2015 /CNW/ - NEI Investments announced changes to the fundamental investment objectives of two of its mutual funds, effective June 8, 2015. The changes were approved by a majority of votes cast at a unitholder meeting held June 1, 2015.
Unitholders of the NEI Select Canadian Balanced Portfolio and the NEI Select Canadian Growth Portfolio approved the Funds to invest up to 100% of their property in foreign securities. As part of these changes, effective June 8, 2015 the Funds will be renamed the NEI Select Balanced Portfolio and NEI Select Growth Portfolio, to more accurately reflect the revised portfolio objectives and asset mixes. The risk ratings of the Funds were unaffected by these changes.
"These changes to the NEI Select Portfolios have been carefully calculated and measured by our investment team," said Daniel Solomon, Chief Investment Officer, NEI Investments. "They represent structural strategic thinking within the given risk framework of each portfolio— reducing potential overlap while enhancing overall diversification."
