Goldman Sachs U.S. Income Builder Trust Announces Initial Public Offering

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 2, 2014) -


Brompton Funds Limited (the "Manager") is pleased to announce that Goldman Sachs U.S. Income Builder Trust (the "Fund") has filed a preliminary prospectus for the initial public offering of Class A Units at a price of $10.00 per Class A Unit and Class U Units at a price of US$10.00 per Class U Unit. The Class U Units are designed for investors wishing to make their investment in U.S. dollars.

The investment objectives of the Fund are to seek to provide (i) income; and (ii) capital appreciation, in each case, through investing in an actively managed, diversified portfolio comprised primarily of U.S. fixed income and equity securities. Goldman Sachs Asset Management, L.P. ("GSAM") has been retained as the sub-adviser of the Fund. GSAM will draw on its deep research capabilities and global team of investment professionals from its Global Fixed Income and Fundamental Equity Groups to select investments for the portfolio. The Fund has a baseline allocation to fixed income securities of 60% and to equity securities of 40%. In seeking to meet its investment objectives, the Fund has the flexibility to opportunistically tilt the allocation of total assets to fixed income and equity securities up to 15% above or below the baseline allocation. GSAM expects to actively manage the duration of the Portfolio's fixed income positions, with a view to reducing the interest rate sensitivity of the Portfolio's fixed income positions during periods of rising interest rates and extending duration when it anticipates that interest rates are trending lower.

The syndicate of agents for the Offering is being led by RBC Capital Markets and CIBC and includes TD Securities Inc., Scotiabank, BMO Capital Markets, National Bank Financial Inc., GMP Securities L.P., Raymond James Ltd., Canaccord Genuity Corp., Desjardins Securities Inc., Industrial Alliance Securities Inc., Mackie Research Capital Corporation and Manulife Securities Incorporated.
