New Mackenzie strategic relationship provides access to Private Market Alternatives

Making alternatives accessible to all Canadians

Historically reserved for institutional and high-net-worth investors, alternatives are now considered a core portfolio holding. We believe all Canadian investors should have access to alternatives to truly achieve a properly diversified portfolio.

That's why we're on a mission to democratize alternatives by making them accessible. With a meaningful allocation, alternatives can help achieve better outcomes over the long-term.
