"We're excited to offer Canadian investors a core solution that can help minimize portfolio risks associated with cyclical market volatility," said Kristi Ashcroft, Executive Vice President, Products & Solutions, Mackenzie Investments. "Low volatility strategies can help give investors confidence to stay true to their financial plans by reducing the temptation to exit the market during downturns."

The initial offering of the ETF has closed, and it will begin trading today on the TSX under the ticker symbol MWLV.

Mackenzie Shariah Global Equity Fund

The Mackenzie Shariah Global Equity Fund provides access to global, shariah-compliant investing opportunities certified by Ratings Intelligence, an external, world-class shariah advisory firm.

Actively managed with a risk-aware investment approach by the Team, the Mackenzie Shariah Global Equity Fund will invest primarily in global market equities that do not generally derive their income from industries that include alcohol, tobacco, pork-related products, weapons and defense, conventional banking, conventional insurance companies and adult entertainment. It will be reviewed on a semi-annual basis by an external Shariah Advisory Board from Ratings Intelligence to help ensure ongoing compliance and certification.

"We're proud to offer Canadians the opportunity to align their investments with their faith and values through the Mackenzie Shariah Global Equity Fund. This is the latest example of our focus on evolving our product shelf to deliver a diverse range of investment solutions led by our award-winning investment management teams," added Ms. Ashcroft.
