Series provides guaranteed 5% cash flows for 20 years 
TSX Symbol: CIX 
TORONTO, July 8, 2013 /CNW/ - CI Investments Inc. ("CI") today announced the 
launch of G5|20 Series, an innovative retirement solution that provides 
guaranteed cash flows, growth potential and protection from market downturns. 
"As millions of Canadian baby boomers approach retirement, having a stable and 
secure retirement income will be a key issue for them," said Derek J. Green, 
President of CI. "Low interest rates mean that fixed-income investments 
generate little return, while many investors are wary of volatility in equity 
markets. CI designed G5|20 Series to help Canadians deal with these 
challenging times by providing a dependable cash flow in retirement as well as 
the potential for continued growth in their investments." 
G5|20 Series is a mutual fund with an actively managed, diversified portfolio 
of income and growth investments, with a 25-year lifespan. Protection against 
downturns is provided through advanced risk management strategies. After a 
five-year accumulation phase, the fund pays out for the next 20 years an 
annual cash flow equal to 5% of the investor's initial investment or the 
market value at the five-year anniversary date, whichever is greater. The cash 
flow is guaranteed by Bank of Montreal. 
"G5|20 Series is the first mutual fund of its kind in Canada," said Mr. Green. 
"It is designed and managed specifically to ensure a dependable, stable cash 
flow through the retirement period. It helps investors deal with those factors 
that present significant risks to their retirement plans, including market 
volatility, inflation and the risk of outliving their money." 
The features of G5|20 Series include: 

    --  5% cash flows for 20 years, guaranteed by Bank of Montreal.
    --  Flexibility to provide downside protection in bear markets and
        take advantage of opportunities in bull markets.
    --  A low volatility investment strategy.
    --  Simplicity and liquidity of a mutual fund, with investors able
        to redeem daily at the current market value. The remaining
        units will continue to distribute the guaranteed cash flow
        without penalties.
    --  A diversified portfolio of Canadian and global equity and
        income securities managed by CI's award-winning portfolio
        management teams.
    --  Active asset allocation, managed by CI Investment Consulting,
        an in-house team that oversees $20 billion in CI's managed
    --  Eligibility for registered and non-registered accounts.
    --  Tax efficiency for non-registered accounts.
    --  A "risk management overlay" that is designed to provide
        long-term growth potential, reduce volatility and maximize the
        fund's residual value. The risk management overlay is provided
        by Nexus Risk Management of Chicago and includes strategies
        that have typically been available only to insurance companies
        and other institutional and high net worth investors.

G5|20 Series is part of the CI Guaranteed Retirement Cash Flow Series, under 
which funds with guaranteed cash flow will be available quarterly. The G5|20 
Series fund announced today will be available for purchase until September 30,
