Toronto, July 28, 2011
– TD Asset Management Inc. (TDAM), the manager of the TD Resource Fund (the Fund), today announced a change to the risk rating associated with investing in the Fund. This change is reflected in the Fund’s updated simplified prospectus filed on July 27, 2011.
The Investment Funds Institute of Canada recently established guidelines for determining risk ratings based primarily upon the variability of returns for a mutual fund. Based on these guidelines, TDAM determined it was prudent to change the risk rating for the Fund from “medium to high” to “high”.
No changes have been made to the investment objectives, strategies or management of the Fund, as set out in the updated simplified prospectus.
