TORONTO, Oct. 12, 2018 /CNW/ - Scotiabank today released a guide for mutual fund managers interested in launching Alternative Mutual Funds.
In a White Paper titled: "Liquid Alternative Funds: A Guide for Mutual Fund Managers", the Bank explains how the Canadian Securities Administrators' newly-minted regulatory reforms now allow hedge-fund-style investment strategies within Canadian mutual fund prospectus rules, making these alternative investments more accessible to investors.
"Scotiabank has long been dedicated to adding value to hedge fund and alternative asset managers through a full-service global operation encompassing all aspects of Prime Services," said Daniel Dorenbush, Managing Director and Head, Canadian Prime Services at Scotiabank. "As alternative investment products gain momentum in the Canadian retail space, we are uniquely positioned to partner with manufacturers to bring new and innovative products to the market."
