Investors + Advisors + Mackenzie Investments. That's better together. We’ve been helping advisors deliver the best possible advice and investment solutions since 1967 – ensuring that their clients are equipped to achieve better outcomes. Our journey as a global asset manager began with one client and one advisor working together. Though we’ve grown, we remain committed to the same belief: working together makes us all better and creates better results for all. Helping investors address new market realities takes combined efforts and insights. But while reasonable fees and strong performance are a must, trust is what keeps clients engaged. Earning and keeping that trust means that advisors must consistently demonstrate that they are expert “go-to” partners. That’s where Mackenzie comes in. We believe in the power of best-in-class advice. We’re also committed to standing behind that advice, so that no advisor has to do it alone. Through our continued help and support, our advisors gain intimate knowledge about the industry and our funds, enabling them to provide the best possible investment advice.
Our vision Everything we do starts with the needs of investors, whether they are saving for a child’s postsecondary education, setting money aside for the future needs of a family member with a disability, or funding their own retirement. In fact, our focus is summed up in our Vision statement: We are committed to the financial success of investors, through their eyes. Putting values first Our growth and success are the direct result of our employees, and we strive to create a workplace supported by the following core values: -Creativity and innovation -Strong decision-making -Collaboration -Courage -Honesty and integrity -Confidence and pride
