CI Investments announced July 30 that it is reducing management fees for 33 mutual funds. The fund company is also enhancing its CI Preferred Pricing to enable more investors to benefit from the program's tiered fee structure.

The management fee reductions on the 33 funds will range from five to 55 basis points (0.05-0.55%) and will be effective Aug. 1, 2018.

The minimum investment requirement to qualify for the CI Preferred Pricing program will drop to $100,000 from $150,000, effective Oct. 1, 2018. Clients with eligible investments at CI of $100,000 or more will automatically receive fee reductions offered by the program, says the company.
