Corporate and Institutional Services

The MacLean Group provides investment management services for corporate, institutional, pension plan and trust fund clients in Atlantic Canada. We help our customers manage their financial affairs by delivering the broadest range of financial services through a single point of contact. Our banking and investment professionals provide access to any services our customers require across the entire Bank of Montreal Financial Group enterprise.

Our clients have access to a comprehensive selection of investment solutions, backed by the country’s top investment research (ranked first every year since 1981).* We use our research as a guide to build your investment portfolio.

Client portfolios may contain bonds, convertible debentures, preferred shares, income trusts, Canadian and international stocks. We appreciate the value and flexibility exchange traded funds (ETFs) bring to our clients and recommend these passive investment options where appropriate. Alternative investments, which do not correlate with the direction of stocks, provide a means of further diversifying portfolios to enhance returns and reduce volatility.

We believe in using world-class professional money managers when they have proven an ability to outperform the average return each year. These managers can be found in our Blueprint and Architect programs. We believe these managed money solutions provide you with the best value available: lower institutional trading rates, proper diversification and portfolio construction, and automatic portfolio rebalancing.
