Scotia Asset Management L.P. Receives Unitholder Approval for Fund Mergers

15:15 EDT Tuesday, August 27, 2013

TORONTO, Aug. 27, 2013 /CNW/ - Scotia Asset Management L.P., as the trustee and manager of the ScotiaFunds, Pinnacle Portfolios and Scotia Private Pools, today announced that it has obtained regulatory and, at special meetings held on August 27, 2013 in Toronto, unitholder approval for its proposal to merge certain mutual funds.

The mergers will take effect after the close of business on September 13, 2013. They are as follows:

Terminating Fund   Continuing Fund
Pinnacle Balanced Growth Portfolio will merge into Pinnacle Conservative Balanced Growth Portfolio
Pinnacle Growth Portfolio will merge into Pinnacle Conservative Growth Portfolio
Scotia Global Climate Change Fund will merge into Scotia Global Growth Fund
Scotia Private Advantaged Income Pool will merge into Scotia Income Advantage Fund
Scotia Vision Conservative 2010 Portfolio
Scotia Vision Aggressive 2010 Portfolio
will merge into Scotia Selected Income Portfolio
Scotia Vision Conservative 2015 Portfolio
Scotia Vision Aggressive 2015 Portfolio
Scotia Vision Conservative 2020 Portfolio
will merge into Scotia Selected Income & Modest Growth Portfolio
Scotia Vision Aggressive 2020 Portfolio
Scotia Vision Conservative 2030 Portfolio
will merge into Scotia Selected Balanced Income & Growth Portfolio
Scotia Vision Aggressive 2030 Portfolio will merge into Scotia Selected Moderate Growth Portfolio

The mergers are the result of the manager's ongoing review of its fund lineup and are believed to be in the best interest of unitholders of the Terminating Funds. Unitholders are expected to benefit from the increased scale and operational efficiencies of the Continuing Funds. In all instances, the MER of the Continuing Funds are the same or lower than those of the Terminating Funds.
