WEBWIRE

RBC Asset Management Inc. today announced that it is amending the investment strategies of the RBC Private O’Shaughnessy Canadian Equity Pool and the RBC Private O’Shaughnessy U.S. Growth Equity Pool, effective January 14, 2008. Both Pools are sub-advised by O’Shaughnessy Asset Management.

The investment objectives for both Pools remain the same, and the Pools will continue to follow the time-tested strategies developed by Jim O’Shaughnessy to select securities with the strongest investment potential. The strategies are being amended to align these Pools with the RBC O’Shaughnessy All-Canadian Equity Fund and the RBC O’Shaughnessy U.S. Growth Fund II to be launched in early 2008. The Pools are currently only available through RBC Managed Portfolios.
