The Manulife Advantage Account is a high-interest, full access, low fee chequing account that can be used by clients as their primary bank account or as a secondary investment account. This account combines the liquidity of a traditional chequing account with the interest of a shirt-term GIC or money market fund. Advantage Account's features and benefits are unrivalled in the marketplace.
Manulife Advantage account is offered through a referral arrangement with Quadrus Investment Services Ltd. Your investment representative may receive a referral fee from Manulife Bank.
To meet evolving mutual fund industry & client expectations, Quadrus Investment Services Ltd. will stop sales of new mutual funds with deferred sales charge & low sales charge (DSC/LSC) fee structures starting Jan. 1, 2021. This means there will be no new DSC/LSC purchases into new or existing client-held accounts or nominee plans. Although the Canadian Securities Administrators' (CSA) ban of DSC will not take effect until Jun 2022, Quadrus is implementing these changes early. On Jan. 1, we will start to automatically move any subsequent investments (including pre-authorized contributions and grants) into funds with 0% front-end load (FEL 0) fee structures. There is nothing you need to do to make these changes.
Insurance products, including segregated fund policies, are offered through Howell Financial Corp., and Investment Representatives Matt Howell and Stacey Dustin offer mutual funds and referral arrangements through Quadrus Investment Services Ltd.
