TORONTO, April 10, 2013 /CNW/ - TD Asset Management Inc. (TDAM), the manager of TD Private Funds, announced today that Epoch Investment Partners, Inc. (Epoch), will assume portfolio adviser responsibilities for the following funds (the Funds) from TDAM, effective on or about May 15, 2013:

  • TD Private U.S. Blue Chip Equity Fund

Epoch's appointment as portfolio adviser follows TD Bank Group's recently completed acquisition of Epoch Holding Corporation on March 27, 2013.

"We are thrilled to have the investment capabilities of Epoch available to our clients through investment in these TD Private Funds," said Dave Kelly, Senior Vice President, TD Waterhouse Private Client Group. "This further strengthens our offering and supports our commitment to bringing world class equity capability to our clients."

There will be no change to the Funds' investment objectives, however the Funds' investment strategies will change to include Epoch's philosophy of investing in companies that have the ability to generate free cash flow and effectively allocate capital, which Epoch believes represents the best predictor of long-term shareholder return.

"We are very pleased to bring our distinct perspectives and fund management expertise to these mandates," said Tim Taussig, President and Chief Operating Officer, Epoch. "We look forward to working alongside TD Asset Management and delivering the client-focused investment management that is at the heart of our firm."
