CIBC Asset Management Inc. announces launch of three CIBC Investment Grade Bond Funds

TORONTO, Jan. 29, 2024 /CNW/ - CIBC (TSX: CM) (NYSE: CM) – CIBC Asset Management Inc. (CAM) today announced that three new target maturity bond mutual funds known as CIBC 2025 Investment Grade Bond Fund, CIBC 2026 Investment Grade Bond Fund, and CIBC 2027 Investment Grade Bond Fund (the "Funds") are now available for purchases.

Each CIBC Investment Grade Bond Fund provides a diversified portfolio of Canadian-dollar denominated investment grade corporate and government bonds with an effective maturity in the calendar year stipulated in their name.

The Funds will prioritize the inclusion of bonds that are trading at a discount to their maturity value to seek to provide greater tax efficiency.

Investors will benefit from:

  • Designated maturity dates – Similar to individual bonds, each CIBC Investment Grade Bond Fund has a defined maturity date at which time the Fund will terminate and the Fund's net assets will be distributed to investors.
  • Explicit exposure – With the CIBC Investment Grade Bond Funds investors can build customized portfolios tailored to specific maturity profiles that can benefit from the potential pre and after-tax return advantage of maturing bonds that are purchased at a discount to par.
  • Monthly distributions - Income is distributed monthly with the option of receiving a consistent cash flow or reinvesting the proceed in additional units of the Fund, an option not available with individual bonds.
  • Simplicity and efficiency – The CIBC Investment Grade Bond Funds are an efficient and convenient way to build bond ladders and manage interest rate risk by investing in the Funds with consecutively maturing years.

"This is the first time in decades that a considerable amount of bonds within the Canadian bond market are trading at a discount to par. We are extremely pleased to provide investors with a new investment solution that offers the preciseness of investing in individual bonds with the diversification benefits of a mutual fund" said David Scandiffio, President and Chief Executive Officer, CIBC Asset Management.

A copy of the simplified prospectus of the Funds is available at 

Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the simplified prospectus before investing. Mutual funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently, and past performance may not be repeated.
