BMO Investments Inc. Key Developments

BMO Investments Inc. Launches New Target Education Portfolios for Canadians' RESP's

BMO Investments Inc. introduced BMO Target Education Portfolios, a series of managed investment solutions specifically designed for education savings and Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs). The five new portfolios have investing time horizons ranging from Income (for people who are close to or already drawing down their savings) to dates from 2020 to 2035. They are managed based on the child's year of birth and expected date to attend post-secondary education. Each portfolio-consisting of mutual funds and/or Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)-gradually shifts its asset mix from an emphasis on equities to an emphasis on fixed income as it approaches its target end date, thereby preserving capital for when it is needed. Education Around RESP's: The study also found that more than three quarters (79%) of Canadian parents wish there was more information or education about the benefits of RESPs and saving for post-secondary education. To help address this, Employment and Social Development Canada has introduced Education Savings Week (November 16-22, 2014), which aims to increase awareness around the importance of education savings, the benefits of RESPs and the availability of government incentives. The company reminds Canadians that RESPs offer a number of benefits, including: Tax-deferred growth: Any gains earned in the RESP will not be taxed until the user withdraws user’s funds in the form of educational assistance payments. Canadian Education Savings Grant: The Government of Canada matches contributions to an RESP up to 20% for the first $2,500 contributed, with a maximum of $500 per year and a lifetime maximum of $7,200. Additional Grants: If the user resides in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Quebec or British Columbia, or if the user is a low income household, the user could qualify for additional grants from the provincial or federal government.
