Natixis Investment Managers Announces Mutual Fund Changes

October 1, 2018

TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 1, 2018--Natixis Investment Managers Canada LP ( Natixis ) today announced several changes to its mutual fund offering.

Closure and Termination of Natixis Canadian Cash Fund

Natixis announces that Natixis Canadian Cash Fund ( Fund ) will be terminated on or around December 7, 2018 ( Termination Date ). Natixis made the decision to simplify its fund line-up by terminating the Fund based on its small size and the lack of demand for funds with this investment mandate.

Effective today, this fund will no longer accept additional investments, switches into the fund or continue to purchase units through pre-existing regular investment savings plans ( PACs ). Investors may redeem or switch their investments until the close of business on December 7, 2018. If alternative investment instructions are not received by December 7, 2018, all of the issued and outstanding units of the Fund ( Units ) will be redeemed by the Fund and investors will be paid the proceeds of these investments, net of any applicable taxes.

Natixis will waive any applicable redemption fees or short-term trading fees for switch or redemption transactions of Units. Natixis encourages all unitholders to consult with their financial advisors to understand the financial and tax implications associated with redeeming or switching their Units and the termination of the Fund and to discuss their investment options.

Capping of Series H of All Natixis Funds

Also effective today, Natixis will cease offering the following series H securities (the “ Closed H Series ”) of all its funds offering that series to new investors. Any pre-authorized chequing plans already in place in any of the Closed H Series will also be closed effective today. Distributions will continue to be re-invested into the Closed H Series of these funds.
