The business of investment plans has been doing very well. With everyone at home, they are spending more time looking at portfolios. There is really a market for professional investment advice. He thinks this market will have hiccups. He is bullish on this industry in general, however.

IGM-T vs. MIC-T. He would prefer MIC-T. He likes the underlying fundamentals, but has always worried about a real estate downturn and how it would affect it. He prefers it to IGM-T where he does not see how the fee structure would be sustainable in the long run.

The family of companies are well run. There are headwinds investing in a mutual fund business. It rallied back recently and pays a decent dividend. The dividend is safe.

They're in a tough spot with buyers going more into ETFs. But IGM has support from the Power Group. He doesn't see a strong reason to hold this, though.

Is the 7.5% dividend sustainable? - He thinks the dividend is sustainable as the company has a nice balance sheet and the company has a different business model compared to other mutual fund companies. That hasn't stopped the stock to come down like all other mutual fund stocks. He would wait until the market works it out.

Have long been the highest cost provider but he does not know if that is still the case today. They have a lot more headwinds than tailwinds.

Banging its head against his EBV +3 level. Closed at $43.48, and he has a model price of $49.17, a 36% upside. However, the regulatory environment in Canada is really, really tough, and he doesn't see it changing anytime soon.

As an established Canadian company, this has one of the higher dividends, close to 6%. This has been under pressure from the move away from commission based products to EFT’s, etc. The company is now positioned and the stock has been washed out. Being in one of the great bull markets of history, it is going to help all stocks, and this company is going to do just fine.

It has issues. Its underlying mutual funds are generally high fees. It is more vulnerable to a sell off because the shares are expensive, 17 times PE. The mutual fund space is being hit with lower fees.

This has been a tremendous growth story over the years. Has some concerns about conventional mutual fund managers as a whole, including this company. Financial services, specifically mutual funds and asset management is a mature industry that is not growing at 2, 3, 5 or 6X GDP growth rates any more. It is becoming more fee competitive. There are costly and disruptive regulatory forces on the horizon. To the extent that management fees will be phased out over time by regulatory action, it is going to prompt a lot of disruption.

If you are coming into this as a new investment, he would prefer Power Financial (PWF-T) because you have investors group as well as Great West Life (GWO-T). While not as exciting, it would be a good hedge in that it would stand to benefit from a rising interest rate environment. However, IGM is at a low right now, so doesn’t think you will be hurt by continuing to own it.

Shares could suffer when the new regulations come into place on July 15. They will force brokers and mutual funds to fully disclose all embedded fees within the clients’ statements. Thinks there will be more passive investing.

It is a steady eddie. It is a good long term play. He would not own it right now. There is uncertainty with regulatory changes coming to the industry so he would not buy it right now.

Money has been coming out of equity mutual funds. Ironically this one has been doing very well relative to the industry over the last year. A tough business and could become even tougher on July 1 when CMR2 comes out, the new mandate of the OSC, where fees are going to be disclosed. Valuation is cheap, but there are too many headwinds. He would prefer Fiera Capital Corp (FSZ-T) which focuses on the institutional and US markets.
