Preferred Pricing

Preferred Pricing Program

Applicable to all Desjardins Funds and Portfolios

Unitholders of Desjardins Funds, including Chorus II, Melodia and SocieTerra Portfolios, are eligible for the preferred pricing program, which offers management fee rebates (MER) for Desjardins Funds.

The Program has two categories:

Individual unitholders

A unitholder of Desjardins Funds units with a net asset value greater than or equal to $100,000 is automatically deemed eligible. The net asset value corresponds to the total value of net assets, excluding front-end and back-end load fees.

Family grouping

A family grouping, whose principal investor is a unitholder of Desjardins Funds units with a net asset value greater than or equal to $250,000, is defined as being a group including:

  1. the occupants of the same residence, considered as the principal residence, without these people having to be related,
  2. any person who is a first-degree child of the main investor and,
  3. any management company that is more than 50% owned by 1 or more participants.

There is no minimum threshold for other members of the family grouping, who get a rebate on their fees proportionate to the weight of their holdings.
