IG Wealth Management is a leading provider of comprehensive, personal financial planning and wealth management through its network of approximately 3,700 exclusive advisors to over one million individuals, families and business owners in Canada. IG Wealth Management is a subsidiary of IGM Financial Inc. which is one of Canada's leading wealth and asset management companies supporting both individual and institutional investors throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
In October 2017, IGM Financial Inc. announced the consolidation of the internal investment management functions of two of its subsidiaries, IG Wealth Management and Mackenzie Investments, to form a single global investment management organization to support both companies under Mackenzie Investments. The majority of this transition occurred prior to the end of 2017, with the remaining consolidation occurring in 2019. Given this change, IG Wealth Management consulted with PRI in 2018 regarding its reporting and has chosen to not report in detail on its internal active ownership practices for these final assets under transition. Please refer to the 2017 Transparency Report for further detail.
Going forward, IG Wealth Management will use a combination of portfolio management expertise from Mackenzie Investments, supplemented with other leading third-party investment talent. IG Wealth Management will continue to manage the Investors Real Property Fund on an in-house basis.
