TD Asset Management Inc. expands alternative investments lineup with launch of TD Greystone Real Asset Pooled Fund Trust

TORONTO, Sep. 12, 2019 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) — Today, TD Asset Management Inc. (“TDAM”) announced an addition to its existing suite of alternative investment solutions for accredited investors with the launch of the TD Greystone Real Asset Pooled Fund Trust (the “Fund”). This Fund joins the TD Greystone Mortgage and Short Bond Pooled Fund Trust and the TD Emerald Private / Public Debt Pooled Fund Trust, which launched earlier this year exclusively through TD Wealth Private Wealth Management.

“We live in a challenging investing world, with very low interest rates, low yields, and increasing volatility. It’s more important than ever to look for new and innovative solutions to help drive value for clients,” said Rob Vanderhooft, Chief Investment Officer, TDAM. “We believe that alternative asset classes, such as real estate, mortgages and infrastructure, can be a source of accretive returns with the potential to enhance portfolio diversification, particularly in environments where inflationary pressures start to pick up. Real assets tend to have a lower correlation to other asset classes and can provide investors with a stable and predictable income stream along with capital growth.”

The TD Greystone Real Asset Pooled Fund Trust seeks to provide income and capital growth over the long-term by primarily investing in, or gaining exposure to, a diversified portfolio of Canadian and global real estate and infrastructure investments as well as publicly traded securities.

Referring to the launch, Dave Kelly, SVP and Head of Private Wealth Management and Financial Planning said, “We are pleased to bring to market the second of our two retail focused TD Greystone Funds for our accredited High Net Worth clients. We continue to focus on evolving our products and services to help meet the changing needs of our clients, deliver value and help them achieve their investment goals.”
