TORONTO, Sept. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - CIBC Asset Management Inc. (CAMI) announced
the launch of several new funds for Canadian investors:
-- Renaissance Floating Rate Income Fund
-- Renaissance U.S. Equity Income Fund
-- Renaissance U.S. Dollar Corporate Bond Fund
-- Renaissance U.S. Dollar Diversified Income Fund

"Canadians are seeking more diversified sources of income and stability from
their investments. They need shelter from the potential of rising interest
rates. More Canadians also need solutions designed specifically for investing
U.S. dollars," says Steve Geist, President of CIBC Asset Management. "These
are among the key challenges that we have addressed with the addition of new
solutions to the Renaissance Investments family of funds."
Rising Rate Protection and Income Enhancement
Renaissance Floating Rate Income Fund aims to provide investors with a high
level of current income and mitigate the impact of rising interest rates,
primarily through investment in U.S. senior floating rate bank loans, other
floating rate debt instruments and lower-rated debt securities (including
high-yield corporate bonds) of issuers around the world. Sub-advisor: Ares
Renaissance U.S. Equity Income Fund seeks to provide current income and
long-term capital growth by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of
U.S. equities. The Fund is based on a flagship equity income mandate from
American Century Investments, with a proven track record of providing income
and delivering superior results since 1994. Sub-advisor: American Century
U.S. Dollar Investment Solutions
Two funds have been introduced specifically for investors who have U.S.
dollars to invest. With underlying assets and pricing in U.S. dollars, the
funds enable Canadians to mitigate currency volatility and avoid unnecessary
currency transactions, while earning income from the underlying portfolio.
Renaissance U.S. Dollar Corporate Bond Fund seeks to generate income by
investing primarily in bonds, debentures, notes and other debt instruments of
U.S. issuers. Sub-advisor: Logan Circle Partners.
Renaissance U.S. Dollar Diversified Income Fund aims to generate a high level
of income and some potential for capital appreciation by investing primarily
in units of mutual funds that invest in fixed income (80% of portfolio) and
equity securities (20% of portfolio) of U.S. issuers. Sub-advisors of
underlying funds: Logan Circle Partners; American Century Investments.
All-in-One Optimal Portfolios
Two new all-in-one, core investment solutions strategically combine diverse
asset classes typically used by pension funds (including Canadian and U.S.
equity income, global fixed income and global infrastructure) to generate
income and provide stability in uncertain times.
Renaissance Optimal Conservative Income Portfolio prioritizes steady income
with an asset mix of 80% fixed income and 20% equities. Sub-advisors of
underlying funds: CIBC Global Asset Management; Brandywine Global Investment
Management, LLC; RARE Infrastructure Ltd; Ares Management.
Renaissance Optimal Growth & Income Portfolio offers additional long-term
growth potential alongside income with an asset mix of 60% equities and 40%
fixed income. Sub-advisors of underlying funds: CIBC Global Asset Management;
American Century Investments; Brandywine Global Investment Management; RARE
Infrastructure; Ares Management.
