New Opportunities in Alternative Mutual Funds Canada

ENSO has published a report highlighting the new alternative investment strategies for the Canadian mutual fund industry.

Finding tools and techniques to create attractive, competitive investor offerings and enable best execution financing.

In a global investment management landscape characterized by changing investor behaviors and preferences, squeezed margins, ongoing and asynchronous regulatory reform across markets and rapid technology innovation, 2019 is set to be a year in which allocation to liquid alternatives will be an increasingly important tool.

In Canada, investment managers have been permitted to launch and market nontraditional funds to retail investors since January 3, 2019 (Canadian Securities Administration legislation NI 81-102). This opens up the $1.3 trillion Canadian mutual fund industry to alternative investment strategies for distribution to the public for the first time.

Expanding into new asset and investor classes brings new opportunities but also new challenges, not least changing portfolio dynamics, risks and regulatory requirements. Consequently, asset managers of all sizes are seeking the tools and techniques to create attractive, competitive investor offerings and enable best execution financing.
