TORONTO, March 14, 2016 /CNW/ - Mackenzie Financial Corporation (Mackenzie Investments) announced today that it will be changing the investment strategies of the Mackenzie US Mid Cap Growth Class effective on or about March 23, 2016.
The Prospectus will be amended to change the investment strategies of the fund in order to remove the restriction placed on hedging its foreign currency. Removing this restriction provides the portfolio manager of the fund with the flexibility to actively manage the foreign currency.
This change makes Mackenzie US Mid Cap Growth Class consistent with the rest of the Mackenzie Investments product shelf in that it will no longer be restricted from hedging its foreign currency.
This fund is also distributed by Quadrus Investment Services Ltd. and Laurentian Bank of Canada.
