Manulife Offers Private Investment Pools


    Manulife Financial has launched its ‘Private Investment Pools,’ an investment program that offers investors high-conviction asset management through a suite of 15 investment pools spanning a range of asset classes. With portfolio management services provided by Manulife Asset Management and Mawer Investment Management Ltd., the program offers tax efficiency primarily through a corporate class structure and a lower fee structure. The minimum investment is $150,000 per pool. “These investment pools offer financial advisors an option in attracting and serving their affluent clients,” says Paul Lorentz, executive vice-president and general manager, insurance and investment solutions, retail markets. The program enables advisors to develop a portfolio strategy that reflects the clients’ goals for income, growth, and capital protection by investing in one or more of the pools.
