TD Mutual Funds reports September sales and redemptions
TORONTO, Oct. 2 /CNW/ - TD Asset Management Inc. (TDAM) today announced fund net redemptions of $1,154 million, of which $894 million in net redemptions were from money market funds. Gross sales for the month totaled $1,725 million and gross redemptions totaled $2,879 million. "Money market fund net redemptions for this month largely reflected overall market volatility and some spillover from concerns regarding money market funds in the United States," said Tim Pinnington, President, TD Mutual Funds. "However, despite difficult market conditions, our gross sales remained relatively consistent with our September 2007 results." TDAM has continually employed a prudent approach in balancing risk and reward in its management of money market funds. "We manage our money market funds with three key objectives in mind - to maintain liquidity, preserve capital, and provide a competitive return." Furthermore, TDAM's measured approach has ensured that none of its money market funds are invested in securities of failed U.S. financial institutions.
