ING Funds Offers Exclusive Class (F Class) Units to Financial Advisors

Date February 25, 2002
This provides Canadians who invest in wrap programs, or fee-for-service investment programs through their financial advisor, with access to ING Funds' global management expertise, on a commission-free basis.

An investor in one of these programs pays a fee to their investment dealer based on the assets in the investor's account and/or for financial planning advice. No sales or redemption charges are payable for purchases or sales of ING Funds' F Class Units, and ING Funds does not pay any trailing or other commissions on them. As a result, these Funds also feature a lower management fee.
