TORONTO, Sept. 25, 2012 /CNW/ - TD Asset Management Inc. (TDAM), the manager of the TD Managed Maximum Equity Growth Portfolio and the TD FundSmart Managed Maximum Equity Growth Portfolio (the "Portfolios"), today announced changes to the neutral asset mix of the Portfolios. TDAM will file an amendment to the Portfolios' simplified prospectus reflecting the changes.
The Portfolios' neutral asset mix has changed from generally 100 percent equity exposure to 90 percent equity exposure and 10 percent fixed income exposure. The asset allocation will generally be maintained within a range of 10 percent above or below the neutral weighting for each asset class. The change allows for greater flexibility in order to better respond to various market conditions. To reflect the change in the neutral weighting, TDAM has also added "credit risk" and "interest rate risk" to the Portfolios' fund-specific risks.
These changes do not alter the Portfolios' risk ratings or investment objectives, as set out in the simplified prospectus.
