CI Investments offers a number of comprehensive investment programs on the principles of strategic asset allocation. Whether you are saving for retirement, seeking a regular income, or have some other goal, CI’s asset allocation programs can potentially meet your investment needs.

These programs are monitored and maintained by CI Multi-Asset Management, a team of investment analysts and asset allocation experts who monitor the portfolio managers and the portfolios to ensure they are adhering to their mandates and performing according to expectations.

Alternative Investments

Alternative Investments

Alternative Investments is a category that encompasses a number of different investment vehicle types, including: closed-end funds, deposit notes, hedge funds, labour-sponsored funds, limited partnerships and liquid alternatives.

These investment vehicles meet a variety of investment needs through a combination of features that may not be available in investment funds. In some cases, these investments have a negative correlation to traditional investments, so they are useful in providing additional diversification and risk management.

Liquid alternatives bridge the gap between traditional mutual funds and hedge funds, combining considerable investment flexibility with daily liquidity, accessibility and transparency.
