CIBC Asset Management Inc. announces unitholder approval of a fixed rate administration fee

CIBC Asset Management Inc. (“CAM”) today announced that unitholders have voted in favour of its proposal to introduce a fixed rate administration fee for the Renaissance Investment Funds, Axiom Portfolios and Renaissance Private Pools listed below (each a “fund” and collectively the “funds”).

Effective September 1, 2021, CAM, as manager, will pay the operating expenses of each fund, other than certain expenses, in exchange for the payment by the fund of an annual fixed rate administration fee. This fee will apply to all classes of each fund, other than Class O and Class OH, if available, and will be equal to a specified percentage of the net asset value of each class of a fund.

For each fund, the approval of unitholders in the voting classes was required to implement the fixed rate administration fee proposal for that specific fund. Unitholders in other classes of each fund were not entitled to vote and received notice of the fixed rate administration fee proposal.

At the special meetings of the funds held on July 30, 2021, unitholders in the voting classes of the following funds have approved the fixed rate administration fee proposal.
