has lowered the minimum investment amounts required for its private wealth pools.
The Mackenzie Private Wealth Pools consist of eight unique long-term strategic mandates managed by professionals from Mackenzie's investment boutiques. Starting Sept. 29, the minimum initial investment required for all the pools will be reduced from $150,000 to $100,000. For households that have assets above $250,000 with Mackenzie, this minimum is waived.
Investment-strategy and portfolio-management changes have also been announced for the following six pools:
- Mackenzie Private Global Conservative Income Balanced Pool

- Mackenzie Private Income Balanced Pool (also available in Corporate Class)
- Mackenzie Private Canadian Focused Equity Pool (also available in Corporate Class)
- Mackenzie Private US Equity Pool (also available in Corporate Class)

The above pools’ strategies will be changed to include active currency management for the total portfolio and dedicated tactical asset allocation to take advantage of market opportunities.
Also effective Sept. 29, Alain Bergeron, senior vice president and head of the Mackenzie Asset Allocation Team, will become lead manager of the funds. He will share the responsibility with Andrea Hallett, vice president and portfolio manager of the Mackenzie Asset Allocation Team.
