MONEY MAGAZINE NAMES VOYAGEUR BEST TAX-FREE FUND IN FLORIDA

 NEW YORK, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- MONEY Magazine's May issue cites Voyageur Florida Insured Tax-Free Fund as the top-performing tax-free fund in Florida for the year ended 4/1/93. The article "Picking the Best Tax-Free Funds in Your State" focused on single-state municipal bond funds as "among today's hottest investments," and cautioned readers to look for high average credit ratings, with relatively low expenses and sales commissions. Voyageur Florida Insured Tax-Free Fund holds a portfolio of AAA municipal credits, the highest quality available.
 Voyageur's state specific bond funds in Colorado, Minnesota and North Dakota also ranked number one in their respective states in the MONEY special report using Morningstar data.
 Voyageur's growth strategy is to focus on regional municipal markets "where performance requires in-depth knowledge and grass roots attention to detail," said John G. Taft, president of the Voyageur Companies. Taft says the company's primary market is the highly conservative investor who likes to sleep at night. People must like their sleep, because Voyageur's growth is four times the industry's average.
 The Minneapolis-based Voyageur Companies has $4.5 billion under management from pension funds, profit sharing plans, commercial banks, insurance companies, public and non-profit entities, high net worth individuals and mutual funds. The firm's 18 open- and four closed-end funds are invested in municipal bonds in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah and Washington. In addition, Voyageur manages a national municipal bond fund, a government bond fund and a growth equity fund.
