WINNIPEG, July 17, 2018 /CNW/ - Investors Group has expanded the range of product solutions available for Registered Disability Saving Plan (RDSP) investments. For a person living with a disabilityi, RDSPs can provide financial security as they save for the long-term. These plans may also be eligible for matching grants and bonds from the federal government, which makes them attractive investment options for many Canadians.
"We've expanded our investment options for RDSPs to give investors seeking additional portfolio solutions, and those with higher asset levels, greater flexibility in how they manage their plans," said Jon Kilfoyle, Senior Vice-President, IG Investments, Investors Group. "If you're looking to expand the investment mix of your RDSP, or thinking of starting one, we have the solutions to meet your needs."
The new investment options for RDSPs include:
- Expanding eligible portfolio solutions: Clients with an RDSP will have access to Alto Monthly Income Portfolio, Alto Monthly Income and Growth Portfolio, Alto Monthly Income and Enhanced Growth Portfolio, and Investors Cornerstone Portfolio to include in their plans.
- Lower fee series: Expanding our lower fee series for certain mutual funds to include the new J Seriesii RDSP, provides clients whose Household Investments with Investors Groupiii are $500,000 and above with access to lower fee options. The $500,000 minimum includes investments in RDSP Series.
