Security Global Investors and Rydex Investments Launch Unified Brand Strategy

New Brand Strategy Reflects the Enhanced Value That an Integrated Security Global Investors and Rydex Investments Bring to the Marketplace, Including a Full Range of Investment Management Solutions Spanning the Asset Allocation Spectrum

ROCKVILLE, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 05/27/09 -- Security Global Investors today announced the launch of a brand strategy that reflects its recent integration with Rydex Investments. The combined asset management business will operate as SGI|Security Global Investors -- a brand name that represents its complete range of investment management capabilities available to institutional clients and financial intermediaries.

"Since the SGI/Rydex integration earlier this year, we have enjoyed significant momentum in our institutional and financial intermediary businesses, including strong investment management performance and positive net sales across our product offerings despite a challenging market environment," says Rich Goldman, CEO at Security Global Investors. "Our new brand strategy reflects the best of what each firm has to offer and will enable us to more effectively compete in a crowded marketplace."

Institutional Marketplace Brand - SGI|Security Global Investors

SGI|Security Global Investors will continue to serve as the brand name in the institutional marketplace, where Security Global Investors has gained increased recognition among institutional consultants and clients. The firm's institutional brand, SGI|Security Global Investors, will also continue to apply to its separately managed account (SMA) offerings, which are designed for the high net worth advisory segment.

Financial Intermediary Marketplace Brand - Rydex|SGI

In the financial intermediary market, the firm will build on Rydex's brand recognition among wealth managers and financial advisors, while also reinforcing Security Global Investors' expertise with fundamental, actively managed investment strategies. Rydex|SGI will replace the Rydex Investments brand name in the financial intermediary space to showcase the firm's comprehensive investment management capabilities, including: fundamental fixed-income, global, value and growth equity strategies, as well as '40 Act alternative investment strategies and asset allocation solutions.

As part of the firm's unified branding strategy, the web addresses for Rydex Investments' public and financial professional web sites will redirect indefinitely to www.rydex-sgi.com/index.shtml and www.rydex-sgi-fp.com.

In addition, the Rydex|SGI brand name will apply to the following Rydex and Security Funds, and eventually to the firm's variable insurance trust lineup.

"As a combined firm, we believe that we are well-positioned to meet the diverse and evolving needs of institutional investors and financial intermediaries alike by providing high quality, innovative investment management solutions and outstanding service," says Goldman.
