SEI Investments Canada Company Announces Unitholder Approval of Adjustments to Investment Objectives for Four Funds

TORONTO , Aug. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SEI Investments Canada Company (SEI Canada), a wholly-owned subsidiary of SEI Investments Company (SEIC), today announced that unitholders of four SEI Canada mutual funds, namely the Balanced 60/40 Fund, Growth 100 Fund, Income 40/60 Fund and Growth 80/20 Fund (each a Fund and collectively, the Funds), approved changes to each Fund's investment objectives at separate special unitholder meetings held today.

As detailed in the joint management information circular of the funds (the Circular) dated July 10, 2018 , the adjustments to the investment objectives of each Fund will more accurately describe how each Fund is managed and will provide clarity to the unitholders of such Fund. If the changes to the investment objectives approved at today's meetings are implemented, the investment objectives of each Fund will be as follows:

  • Balanced 60/40 Fund - The fundamental investment objective of the fund is to achieve long-term growth of capital and income through investment in a diversified portfolio of Canadian equity securities, Canadian fixed income securities, foreign equity securities, and foreign fixed income securities. The fund seeks to accomplish this objective by investing its assets in underlying funds.
  • Growth 100 Fund - The fundamental investment objective of the fund is to achieve long-term growth of capital and income through investment in a diversified portfolio of Canadian equity securities and foreign equity securities. The fund seeks to accomplish this objective by investing its assets in underlying funds.
  • Income 40/60 Fund - The fundamental investment objective of the fund is to achieve long-term growth of capital and income through investment in a diversified portfolio of Canadian equity securities, Canadian fixed income securities, foreign equity securities and foreign fixed income securities. The fund seeks to accomplish this objective by investing its assets in underlying funds.

The fund seeks to accomplish this objective by investing its assets in underlying funds.

SEI Canada has determined that the risk rating of each Fund will not change as a result of the changes to the investment objectives. SEI Canada expects that the changes will be implemented on or about August 31, 2018 . The changes will be evidenced by amendments to the simplified prospectus, annual information form and fund facts for each Fund, as well as the master trust agreement governing the Funds. Copies of the foregoing documents, as amended, will be available at www.sedar.com and on SEI Canada's website.
