TORONTO, Oct. 18, 2016 /CNW/ - Excel Funds Management Inc. ("Excel Funds") announced that it has launched series D units for 5 of its mutual fund strategies, offering each of these products at a reduced cost to Canadians that invest through discount brokerages.
"Do-it-yourself investors make up a large part of our core business," says Bhim D. Asdhir, President and CEO of Excel Funds. "They will now have access to some of our top-rated products at a much better price point, and we look forward to catering to this segment of the market a lot more in the future."
