Manulife Mutual Funds Caps Two Funds And US Dollar Purchase Option For Floating Rate Income Fund

C$ unless otherwise stated TSX/NYSE/PSE: MFC  SEHK:945 

TORONTO, Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Manulife Mutual Funds, a division of Manulife Asset Management Limited, announced it will cap all new and additional purchases into the Manulife Global Small Cap Fund and Manulife Global Small Cap Balanced Fund (collectively, the "Capped Funds") and close purchases to the USD purchase option for each class of units offered by Manulife Floating Rate Income Fund effective November 8, 2013.

Each series of the Capped Funds will be closed to new and additional purchases, other than contributions made under existing pre-authorized chequing and dollar-cost averaging plans, including those series used in segregated fund contracts (GIF Select InvestmentPlus and GIF Select Original 75 Series).

Mawer Investment Management Ltd., the sub-advisor to the Capped Funds, has reached capacity limits for investments into their Global Small Cap strategy. As a result, these Funds are being capped to new purchases. The USD purchase option for Manulife Floating Rate Income Fund is being capped as investors looking to purchase the fund using U.S. dollars are now able to access this strategy through the new Manulife U.S. Dollar Floating Rate Income Fund.

"We recognize that Mawer's blue chip small cap strategy invests in a capacity-constrained environment and that the decision to cap further contributions is in the best interest of investors" said Derek Saliba, Assistant Vice President, Manulife Mutual Funds. "Investors will continue to have access to the Mawer investment approach through Manulife Mutual Funds in other asset classes including, Manulife U.S. Equity Fund, Manulife World Investment Fund/Class, Manulife Global Equity Class, Manulife Canadian Bond Fund, and the new Manulife Global Balanced Fund".
