Dundee Securities Corporation Launches Dundee Diversified Global Advantage Index Notes, Series I

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 4, 2006) - Dundee Securities Corporation introduces Dundee Diversified Global Advantage Index Notes (G.A.I.N.), Series 1 for Canadian investors wanting to take advantage of global market opportunities with less risk.

The Notes will be issued by Societe Generale (Canada) and guaranteed by Societe Generale, one of the largest financial services groups in Europe (rated AA-by Standard and Poor's and Aa2 by Moody's), and will mature on or about June 13, 2013.

In addition to providing investors with 100% principal protection at maturity, G.A.I.N. offers exposure to a diversified mix of asset classes and geographic regions in order to maximize growth potential. Each Note's returns are linked to a portfolio of seven indices and/or exchange traded funds from around the world and carry no direct currency risk as a result of being denominated in Canadian dollars.

To further enhance portfolio performance, the Notes also make use of an innovative "Look back" and "Lock-In" investment strategy that allows investors to get the benefit of hindsight. Each year, the best return from one of the remaining indices and/or exchange traded funds is "locked-in", up to a maximum of 12.5%, after which the "locked-in" index and/or exchange traded fund is removed from future performance evaluations.

"With the lifting of foreign content limits for registered plans and the rise of many capital markets around the world, investors are now recognizing the opportunities that exist outside of Canada," stated Kym Anthony, President and C.E.O. of Dundee Securities Corporation and Dundee Private Investors. "We believe that these new Notes, if held to maturity, can provide our more conservative clients with a safe way to participate in global markets."

The Dundee Diversified Global Advantage Index Notes, Series I are being offered exclusively through Dundee' network of financial advisors and will be available for sale for the period of March 31 through to May 31, 2006. The minimum investment is $5,000.
