Mackenzie Corporate Class wind-up

On July 30, 2021, we will wind up Mackenzie Financial Capital Corporation, including its suite of 34 corporate class funds. Each terminating corporate class fund will be merged into its corresponding trust fund equivalent on a tax deferred basis.  Where no corresponding trust fund currently exists, one will be launched.

This decision reflects changing market and regulatory environments, which have reduced the tax-efficiency benefits of corporate class structures in Canada. Mackenzie’s corporate class is in a taxable position and is expected to remain so. As such, we believe that winding-up the corporation is in the best interests of our investors.

For more details of the wind-up and what it means to you and your clients, please see below for a list of impacted funds and helpful resources including a detailed Q&A (coming soon) document for advisors.
