NEI Investments is a Canadian asset manager with more than 35 years of responsible investing experience. Our goal is to make a positive difference for our investors, our partners and society. To do that we have built a diversified lineup of actively managed RI solutions advised by global investment managers and overseen by NEI's proprietary Investment Management, Asset Allocation and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) teams.

Investment Managers from Around the World

NEI makes every effort to engage some of the most experienced investment managers in the industry today. These managers are chosen through a rigorous selection process and managed through ongoing monitoring. Every investment product offered by NEI is designed to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns over the long term.

Multiple and Complementary Responsible Investment Options

NEI offers a full range of RI solutions that cover all major asset classes, investment styles and geographic regions. A variety of RI approaches are applied selectively across NEI's lineup of funds and portfolios, with some solutions carrying the Responsible Screen (RS) designation in their name that automatically exclude investments in select categories and industries.

NEI Investments grows with the addition of OceanRock

On October 26, 2018, NEI Investments assumed management responsibilities for the OceanRock and Meritas Funds from OceanRock Investments Inc. This change was a result of the founding of Aviso Wealth and is intended to provide investors and advisors with a strong, innovative and highly competitive asset management platform to help meet the evolving wealth management needs of Canadian investors.

Fixed administration fees

NEI offers fixed administration fees, part of our continued effort to improve accountability to investors and set a high industry standard. Fixing administration fees helps to improve transparency of costs and can reduce the variability of management expense ratios. And as the company grows, we are committed to reducing expenses and passing the benefits on to investors.
