TORONTO, Jan. 24, 2022 /CNW/ - CIBC (TSX: CM) (NYSE: CM) - CIBC Asset Management Inc.("CAM") today announced that the first 4 exchange traded funds ("ETFs") in its suite of ETF solutions have reached nearly $3 billion in combined assets. Introduced three years ago, these low-cost ETFs complement CIBC's broad and innovative investment fund line up.
"Our entry into the growing ETF industry three years ago was a natural extension of our investment capabilities, allowing us to provide investors with more investing options in terms of structure, price, and ease of use," said David Scandiffio, President and CEO, CAM. "We started with four funds, and we're now at 27 funds. The track record of these funds is a testament to our innovative investment process."
CIBC's ETF solutions provide access to a broad range of passive and actively managed equity and fixed income investment strategies to help investors diversify their portfolios. These ETFs leverage the broad experience and deep expertise of CAM's investment teams.
Over the past three years, CAM has expanded its suite of ETFs to include solutions that provide exposure to responsible investing-themed investments, such as clean energy and low-volatility dividend income strategies for income-seeking investors who prefer equity-based exposure with reduced volatility.
This year, CAM celebrates its 50th anniversary. It has grown to become one of the largest asset managers in Canada. The firm is committed to serving investors well, developing unique multi-asset class investment solutions based on best-in-class research, a strong tradition of disciplined investment processes and prudently managing risk while delivering customized and innovative solutions to clients.
