IGM Financial is committed to providing innovative and high-quality investment solutions. Mackenzie Investments continues to deliver strong investment performance by drawing on more than 50 years of experience, insights and expertise in the asset management business.
Providing Investors with Innovation and Options
Ongoing product innovation at Mackenzie Investments contributed to the company’s growth in 2019 and further complemented its diversified product offering. With the launch of three new alternative strategy products in February, Mackenzie currently offers retail investors five liquid alternative funds. Further, the firm introduced the Mackenzie International Dividend Fund and the Mackenzie Global Growth Balanced Fund, a new multi-asset solution.
Mackenzie's ETF business continued its impressive growth with the introduction of several new offerings, including the Mackenzie Emerging Markets Local Currency Bond Index ETF, launched in October and the first of its kind in Canada. In addition, Mackenzie continues to work with our partner China Asset Management Corporation (CAMC) to develop and launch products and services in both China and Canada.
In 2019, Mackenzie Investments evolved its brand proposition – Better Together – to more accurately reflect the company’s commitment to the industry and to supporting advisors and their clients. Competitive fees and strong performance are key, but client trust is essential. When investors, advisors and Mackenzie Investments work together, the combined effort makes everyone better and creates stronger results for clients.
Celebrating 20 Years of Giving Back
Mackenzie Investments has a long history of caring about the communities where we live and work. The firm continues to encourage its employees to be generous through financial contributions and volunteering. Celebrating our 20th anniversary in 2019, the Mackenzie Investments Charitable Foundation is run entirely by employee volunteers and supports charities across Canada, with a focus on organizations that support women, children and youth. The Foundation has donated more than $12 million in grants to charitable organizations that positively impact the lives of those in need.
