iA Financial Group introduces new segregated fundsBy The IJ Staff | November 05 2018 11:30AM
iA Financial Group announced Nov. 5 that it has added three new global managed solutions to its segregated fund offer. The three new asset allocation funds are managed by Clément Gignac, senior vice-president and chief economist, and his team at iA Investment Management (iAIM).
The three new funds are: Global Asset Allocation Security (iAIM); Global Asset Allocation (iAIM) and Global Asset Allocation Opportunity (iAIM). These funds respond to three profiles, from the most prudent (Security) to the most aggressive (Opportunity).
The new solutions also offer clients “the possibility of optimizing their exposure to the global market, including to alternative asset classes, while maintaining a competitive management expense ratio.”
Private alternative and real asset classes
"We are among the first to offer, in Canada, a new fund series, in terms of segregated funds, that gives regular investors direct access to private alternative and real asset classes like real estate, mortgage loans, infrastructure, private equity and private debt, which are normally reserved for institutions and large pension funds that require a major investment and/or high fees," says Clément Gignac.
The funds are available in the Classic 75/75 and 75/100 series of the IAG Savings and Retirement Plan as well as My Education+.
