Canada Life Investment Management Ltd. announces changes to its mutual funds line-up and high-net-worth offering

Canada NewsWire

LONDON, ON, July 20, 2022

LONDON, ON, July 20, 2022 /CNW/ - Canada Life Investment Management Ltd. (CLIML) today announced changes to several Canada Life Mutual Funds, including reductions to management fees, simplified pricing for investors in fee-based series (F Series), more accessible high-net-worth pricing, a risk rating reduction, and an investment strategy update.

Fee reductions and simplified pricing structure for investors in fee-based series (F Series) 1

Effective July 22, 2022, we are implementing reductions to management fees that will vary by fund and range from 10 to 40 basis points as set out in the table below. The management fees of all F Series mutual funds will now align with their equivalent high-net-worth fee-based series (FW Series). These reductions are aimed at delivering greater value for investors.

With identical management fees, on or about September 16, 2022, FW Series2 will be redesignated as F Series to create one fee-based series for all investors. No investor will experience a fee increase as a result of these changes. With our F Series now charging the same management fees as our FW Series, we will be eliminating any Management Fee Reductions on F Series between $100,000 and $499,999.

In support of this upcoming series redesignation, the Canada Life Money Market Fund FW Series administration fee will also be reduced by 5 basis points (from 15 basis points to 10 basis points) effective July 22, 2022 to align with F Series.

1 This change also applies to all F Series funds with a fixed rate distribution (F5 and F8, where offered)

Optimized high-net-worth pricing structure

Effective July 22, 2022, CLIML is enhancing its high-net-worth (HNW) pricing program to streamline the qualification criteria and make it more accessible for investors. Also, we are adjusting the HNW pricing structure to deliver added value for clients with higher asset holdings.

Currently, to qualify for HNW pricing an investor must have $500,000 minimum total holdings (total household assets) and $100,000 minimum initial investment in a series. The $100,000 requirement is reduced to $500 to align with the minimum initial investment for all retail series. The $500,000 minimum total holdings requirement will remain in place. This new eligibility criteria will apply to W, W5, W8, QFW, QFW5, FW, FW5, FW8, N, N5 and N8 Series.

A new management fee reduction will be introduced for investors with total holdings of $1 million+ as set out in the table below. This will apply to W, F, FW, and QFW Series (and applicable fixed rate distribution series). N Series already benefits from banded management fee levels. There are five asset band thresholds, and as your total holdings cross each band, management fee reductions are applied to each dollar invested. Rebates are accrued daily and paid out quarterly.
