|Canada's Investment Company
CI Investments has been managing money on behalf of Canadian investors
since 1965. In 1981, CI entered the global fund arena with the introduction
of CI Pacific Fund – one of the first funds in Canada devoted to Asian

lineup of investment options, including mutual funds, segregated funds,
asset allocation programs, structured products and other alternative investments.

Oversight of the Funds
CI has dedicated specialists and a wide-ranging set of policies and procedures
in place to ensure the good governance of its funds and to provide oversight
of their portfolio management activities. These include:
- CI Investment Consulting, an experienced team of
investment experts who monitor the portfolio managers and the funds’
portfolios to ensure they are adhering to their mandates and performing
within expectations. This group also assisted in the design of CI's
managed solutions - Portfolio Series and Portfolio Select Series - and
plays a key role in maintaining these programs.
- The Compliance Department, whose duties include monitoring
trading activities by the funds' portfolio managers.
- The CI Investments Board of Governors, an independent
governance body of all CI Funds, providing impartial judgment on conflicts
of interest with a view to the best interests of the CI Funds and CI
Investments investors. The Board of Governors recommends the best course
of action to achieve a fair and reasonable result on any conflict of
interest issues, and CI takes into account its recommendation in accordance
with its fiduciary duty to the CI Funds. All of the members of the Board
are independent of CI.
