NEI Investments Launches the New NEI Conservative Yield Portfolio

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - January 11, 2016) - NEI Investments ("NEI", "Portfolio Manager") today announced the successful launch of the NEI Conservative Yield Portfolio (the "Portfolio") to be managed by NEI's internal Portfolio Management team.

The Portfolio utilizes strategic asset allocation as the principal investment strategy and invests primarily in income mutual funds and also in yield generating, equity mutual funds that provide exposure to markets around the world. The portfolio is intended to provide a lower risk solution to yield generation.

"Investment yield at the lower end of the risk spectrum continues to be a significant need in the market place," said Daniel Solomon, Chief Investment Officer at NEI and lead Portfolio Manager to the new Fund. "Even more conservative investors have needs beyond just wealth preservation, and this portfolio strives to fulfill some of these needs," continued Solomon.

The Portfolio will aim to pay a fixed monthly distribution consisting of income and/or return of capital of a fixed amount per unit determined as of December 31 in the previous year and will have an initial minimum investment of $100,000 CAD. The Portfolio Manager uses strategic asset allocation as the principal investment strategy. The Portfolio Manager has the flexibility to shift its asset allocation over the short-term in response to opportunities identified in the current market environment and in order to minimize risks.
