Mackenzie Financial has introduced the Mackenzie Founders Global Equity Class, a new diversified global portfolio designed to provide long-term growth of capital.

The fund combines the complementary styles of the Mackenzie Cundill and Mackenzie Ivy investment teams. It will invest predominantly in a select group of high-quality multinational companies based outside of Canada. Mackenzie Founders Global Equity Class is available in both Canadian and US dollar versions.

“Although Mackenzie Cundill Value Fund and Mackenzie Ivy Foreign Equity Fund are strong funds on a stand-alone basis, together they have proved to be a remarkable fund pair, producing historically high risk-adjusted returns,” said Terry O’Sullivan, executive vice-president and national sales manager of Mackenzie Financial Services.

“Many advisors have been purchasing these funds together on behalf of their clients for years. Now, with a single purchase of Mackenzie Founders Global Equity Class, advisors and investors can more easily access the benefits of this exceptional fund duo.”
