In my quest to document everything Cmar, this… is a thing of note? Apparently.
So, firstly, CI is:
CI Global Asset Management has been managing money on behalf of Canadian investors since 1965. In 1981, CI entered the global fund arena with the introduction of CI Pacific Fund – one of the first funds in Canada devoted to Asian markets. The company became known for its expertise in foreign funds and adopted the name Canadian International Fund Management. Over the years, CI expanded its lineup of funds to provide investors with an increasingly comprehensive offering of Canadian, global and industry funds. This growth was guided by a strategy of seeking the best available portfolio managers. Today, CI Global Asset Management is one of Canada’s largest investment fund companies. About 1.3 million Canadians trust us to help realize their financial goals.
And then, Marret:
Marret Asset Management focuses on fixed-income investing and alternative strategies on behalf of institutional, high net worth and retail clients. Marret Asset Management Inc. is a partly owned subsidiary of CI Financial Corp. and an affiliate of CI Investments Inc.
Which leads us to either Alternative or Absolute for the A, capped off by a solid R from Return. Unsurprisingly, from the excellence of its name, the CMAR fund seems to be doing pretty well of late. The ultimate take away, methinks, is to shout northwards: invest in CMAR!
