  1. 1. CI'S SHANNON, DUNDEE'S GOODMAN HONOURED AT 2005 CANADIAN INVESTMENT AWARDS GALA Dynamic named top fund company; Burgundy Asset dominates new institutional pooled fund awards TORONTO, Nov. 30, 2005 -- CI Financial's Kim Shannon was named Morningstar® Fund Manager of the Year at the sold-out Canadian Investment Awards Gala Wednesday night. Winners of other major awards were Ned Goodman, CEO of Dundee Wealth Management, who was honoured for Career Achievement, and Dynamic Funds, which took the prize for Analysts' Choice Fund Company of the Year. The latter served as double recognition for Goodman, whose firm is Dynamic's parent. Fund companies and other industry bodies were honoured in 48 other categories at the gala, held at The Carlu in Toronto. The Canadian Investment Awards recognize leading investment products and firms illustrating an enduring commitment to excellence within the Canadian financial services industry. The jury is made up of 40 senior analysts and expert jury members researching and ranking in 50 categories and is supported by over 20 principal sponsors - Morningstar Canada and CGI Inc. are the event's platinum sponsors. The top performers have become a valuable annual reference guide for Canadian investors and advisors alike. Shannon manages CI Canadian Investment Fund, one of Canada's oldest mutual funds, launched in 1932, and is also president and chief investment officer of Sionna Investment Managers Inc. Under her guidance, the fund gained 18.1% during the 12 months ended Oct. 31. Shannon's longer term numbers are excellent, too, with top-quartile returns of 11.7% and 13.3% during the five- and 10-year periods ended Oct. 31, respectively. The $4-billion fund is rated five stars by Morningstar, one of only three funds in the Canadian Equity category with assets of more than $2 billion to hold Morningstar's top rating. Among other notable 2005 award winners in mutual fund categories was Sceptre Equity Growth Fund, which was named Canadian Equity Fund of the year. The $350-million fund, managed by Allan Jacobs, had a one-year return of 28.8% at Oct. 31. TD Canadian Bond Fund, a $6.4-billion fund managed by Satish Rai and Geoff Wilson, was the Canadian Income Fund of the Year. In the new institutional pooled-fund category, Burgundy Asset Management Ltd. won four of the seven awards, including Canadian Equity Pooled Fund of the Year. Among the winners in the income trust awards group was ARC Energy Trust, which was judged the top Oil & Gas Energy Trust. And Arrow Multi-Strategy Fund won the Fund of Hedge Funds Award of the Year.
