Mackenzie portfolios invest actively in full range of Mackenzie ETFs

Rudy Luukko 29 January, 2018 | 6:00PM

Mackenzie Investments today launched five portfolios of exchange-traded funds that will invest actively in a "full spectrum" of the company's active, strategic beta and newly launched passive index ETFs.

The portfolios are managed by Mackenzie's Symmetry asset-allocation team, who will employ strategic and tactical asset allocation along with active currency management. The managers can vary the target asset allocations by plus or minus 10 percentage points. Since the portfolios are structured as mutual funds, they can be purchased through mutual-fund dealers, the vast majority of whom are not licensed to deal directly in ETFs.

The management fees for all but one of the portfolios, not including administration fees and other costs, are 1.60% for Series A sold through commissioned dealers, 0.85% for Series D for discount-brokerage accounts, and 0.60% for fee-based advisory accounts. For Mackenzie Conservative Income ETF Portfolio, the management fee is 1.30% for Series A, 0.80% for Series D and 0.55% for Series F. Reduced-fee series for high-net-worth accounts are also offered, as are several series that offer fixed-rate distributions.
