NEO Connect Welcomes Stone Asset Management PTF
Toronto, September 10, 2019 – NEO is pleased to announce that Stone Asset Management Limited (“SAM”) will utilize the NEO Connect platform to distribute Series PTFTM of the Stone Dividend Growth Class fund. NEO Connect is accessible to all investors, asset managers and their dealers who want more efficient and lower cost transactions in assets not listed on a stock exchange. The Stone Dividend Growth Class PTF is now available under the symbol SAMDG.
“We are very excited to launch our first PTF on NEO’s innovative platform,” said Richard Stone, Founder and Chief Investment Officer of SAM. “The Stone Dividend Growth Class fund is an investment solution catering to the growing generational need for income with total return, and is a core fund for appropriate investors’ risk tolerance levels. Our goal is to continue expanding investment options under the SAM investment management philosophy, which is rooted in integrity and always doing the right thing for investors. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership with NEO as we execute on our strategy to launch future Stone PTFs in the months to come.”
NEO Connect allows fund manufacturers to offer product in the form of PTFs at a cost lower than Series F funds, while giving dealers and their advisors more efficient access.
