TORONTO, Feb. 6 /CNW/ - TD Asset Management Inc. (TDAM), the manager of
TD Mutual Funds, today announced plans to terminate the operations of three
mutual funds. Effective February 6, 2008, the Funds will cease offering units
for purchase and will be terminated on or about April 11, 2008.
The decision to terminate the Funds is due to a low number of unitholders
and the associated costs of maintaining smaller funds. The Funds that will be
TD U.S. Blue Chip Equity Currency Neutral Fund
TD U.S. Mid-Cap Growth Currency Neutral Fund
TD U.S. Small-Cap Equity Currency Neutral Fund
Unitholders may redeem or switch their holdings in the Funds for
settlement on or prior to the termination date. As at April 11, 2008, TDAM
will liquidate the holdings of the terminating Funds at fair market value,
determine distributions and distribute the net assets to unitholders.
Unitholders will not be required to pay any redemption fees, sales
charges or other fees associated with the termination of the Funds. All costs
associated with the termination of the Funds will be borne by TDAM.
Unitholders are encouraged to speak with their financial advisor to discuss
their investment options.
