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 is the first mid-sized fund company in Canada to offer 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.
OwnershipCorporate Social Responsibility
