TORONTO, May 1, 2013 /CNW/ - TD Asset Management Inc. (TDAM), the manager of TD Mutual Funds, today announced the launch of a new Premium Series for its TD Target Return Funds. In expanding its Series' offerings, TDAM's new Target Return Premium Series gives investors another reason to take advantage of the Funds' unique approach to investing. Unlike other mutual funds, TD Target Return Funds seek to achieve a defined target rate of return. The Portfolio Manager carefully manages and monitors risk, and has the flexibility to choose among different asset classes and regions in seeking to achieve the desired return. "We know that many investors seek investment options that will provide the potential for stable returns," stated Sandra Cimoroni, President, TD Mutual Funds. "TD's new Premium Series for our popular Target Return Funds makes them an even more attractive solution to help investors achieve that objective." Both TD Target Return Funds - the TD Target Return Conservative Fund and the TD Target Return Balanced Fund - aim to provide three key benefits:
A defined target return
Protection against inflation
In addition to the current fund options, the Target Return Premium Series' is available with a minimum investment of $100,000 per fund with subsequent investments of $100. Both Funds are suitable for investors who are focused on maintaining their capital with some growth potential as well as those focused on wealth accumulation with potentially reduced risk. They are a great alternative to fixed income or balanced investments or for investors who are hesitant about re-entering the markets given the volatility of recent years.
