Market Trends of Canada Asset Management Industry

Responsible Investment Funds are Driving the Market

The rising demand for RI among Canadian individual investors is being met with greater availability and diversity of retail RI products as longer-standing RI firms expand their product offerings and newer entrants to the space launch RI products. Assets in designated RI retail mutual funds have increased, representing a growth of 36% over the last two years. Meanwhile, assets in exchange-traded funds (ETFs) managed under RI strategies have more than doubled over the last two years in Canada. Responsible investment (RI) has taken its place as the predominant investment approach among Canadian investors. Assets in Canada being managed using at least one RI strategy increased subsequently over the years. Responsible investing comprises a majority of Canada’s professionally managed assets, accounting for more than 60% of all Canadian AUM.
