The firm also announced that effective January 2, 2019, households enrolled in a preferred-pricing series will be switched to an equivalent retail series if their high-water mark falls below the minimum eligibility requirement of $100,000. Those households may top up their investment back to the $100,000 minimum to lower their cost of investing and avail of various benefits offered by Mackenzie’s Private Wealth Solutions.
