CIBC Asset Management is lowering the minimum initial investment amount of the Renaissance Real Assets Private Pool to $10,000 from $150,000, effective March 1, 2017. This change will make real-asset investing available to more Canadian investors.

The Renaissance Real Assets Private Pool is designed for clients seeking long-term capital growth and income through investments in securities of companies that engage in real assets sectors. That includes real estate, natural resources and infrastructure.

The pool is managed by Brookfield Investment Management, a U.S. SEC-registered investment advisor that’s owned by Brookfield Asset Management.
