BMO Investments Inc. Announces Changes to BMO LifeStage Plus 2030 Fund

TORONTO, Aug. 10, 2020 /CNW/ - BMO Investments Inc. ("BMOII"), the manager of BMO LifeStage Plus 2030 Fund (the "Fund"), today announced that the Fund's portfolio allocation has been changed to a "protected" asset mix.

The Fund's portfolio will now consist entirely of fixed income investments (including provincial and corporate bonds) and cash equivalents until its target end date. In keeping with the Fund's investment strategies, this reallocation to a fixed income portfolio is intended to ensure the Fund is able to pay investors the Guaranteed Maturity Amount1 at its target end date.  

As a result of this change, BMOII has reduced the management fees on Series A, Series D and Advisor Series units of the Fund as indicated in the table below effective as of the close of business on August 10, 2020:

1 In order to receive the highest daily locked-in value (the "Guaranteed Maturity Amount"), investors must remain invested in the Fund until the Fund's target end date. If an investor redeems any of his or her units of the Fund prior to the target end date, the investor will receive the price per unit based on the relevant series' net asset value next determined after BMOII receives the redemption request, which may be less than the Guaranteed Maturity Amount. Please read the Fund's annual information form for important information regarding the Guaranteed Maturity Amount.
