Montreal, June 19, 2020 - Desjardins Investments Inc. ("DI"), manager of the Desjardins Funds, is announcing the closure of a Desjardins Fund. DI is continually improving its product offering to ensure it meets investors' needs and is adapted to financial market realities. Considering the low net asset value and limited number of unitholders, the manager has decided to close the Desjardins Low Volatility Emerging Markets Fund (formerly the Desjardins IBrix Low Volatility Emerging Markets Fund).
These closures will take place on or about September 25, 2020. DI reserves the right to postpone implementing the change described above.
Starting June 22, 2020, DI will suspend any additional investment in the funds units at issue, with the exception of investments made by periodic payments.
