Introducing BMO Brookfield Renewables Infrastructure and Real Estate Tech Funds

The benefits of mutual funds. The exposure to alternative investments. Combined.

February 2022

At a time when market volatility, rising prices and low yields are a common denominator, investors are looking for alternative solutions that can boost returns, while diversifying their asset mix away from traditional assets and fixed income.

Alternative investments include non-traditional assets, like real estate and infrastructure. Investors can access these types of investments through mutual funds that invest in public securities to give exposure to alternative investments.

BMO and Brookfield have collaborated to bring you two new investment strategies that combine the expertise of BMO Global Asset Management as a provider of mutual funds and Brookfield PSG’s experience in investing across real asset sectors. The funds offer your clients access to Brookfield’s proprietary strategy, delivering on BMO GAM’s mission to deliver innovative products and solutions.

BMO Brookfield Global Renewables Infrastructure Fund offers investors access to sustainability infrastructure assets and renewable energy companies. Sales Aid
