TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 1, 2009) -

Guardian Capital Group Limited (TSX:GCG)(TSX:GCG.A) and Guardian Capital Tactical Yield Fund -

Guardian Capital Management LP ("Guardian Capital") and Guardian Capital LP ("Guardian") are pleased to announce that a preliminary prospectus for the Guardian Capital Tactical Yield Fund (the "Fund") has been filed with the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces and territories of Canada.

The Fund's investment objectives are:

(i) to maximize risk-adjusted total returns for investors, consisting of both cash distributions and capital appreciation; and

(ii) to provide investors with monthly cash distributions, initially targeted to be 5.5% per annum on the original offering price of $10.00 per unit.

The Fund will seek to achieve its investment objectives by investing in an actively managed, diversified portfolio comprised primarily of Canadian and global dividend-paying growth equities that provide a stream of current income and which Guardian believes have the potential for earnings and dividend growth and for capital gains, income-oriented equities, including preferred shares and REITs, and fixed-income securities, including high yield debt and investment grade debt.

Guardian Capital, as the trustee and manager of the Fund, will provide or arrange for all of the administrative, management and investment advisory services required by the Fund. Guardian Capital's affiliate, Guardian, will act as the portfolio adviser to the Fund. Both Guardian and Guardian Capital are subsidiaries of Guardian Capital Group Limited, a financial services company that has been listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange since 1969. Guardian Capital Group has three major operating business segments, including providing investment management services, providing financial advisory services relating to the retail distribution of mutual funds, other investments and life insurance and managing its own investment capital.

Guardian Capital Group intends to invest at least $1,000,000 in the Fund.
