Claymore Investments announces launch of International & Japan ETFS on TSX

Claymore Investments, Inc. is pleased to announce the launching of the Claymore International Fundamental Index ETF (TSX:CIE) and the Claymore Japan Fundamental Index ETF C$ Hedged (TSX:CJP) to begin trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) on February 14, 2007.
“We are very happy to be bringing these two products to market. There is
a real lack of good International focused ETFs designed for Canadian investors

using the Fundamental Index approach by FTSE RAFI, which have historically
outperformed their respective market benchmarks. The products could be great
tools to help any investor looking to diversify their portfolios”, said Som
Seif, President & CEO of Claymore Investments, Inc.
