Canoe Financial Announces a PM Change and Confirms Monthly Distribution for EIT.UN
CALGARY, ALBERTA – June 10, 2013 – Canoe Financial LP, manager of the EnerVest Diversified Income Trust (EIT.UN) and the Canoe Mutual Funds, announces that a portfolio manager change will be implemented for certain funds on or by September 1, 2013, subject to regulatory approval. The investment objectives and investment strategies of these funds remain unchanged.
Mr. Robert Taylor, CA, CFA, Senior Vice President of Canoe Financial, will assume portfolio management responsibilities for the EnerVest Diversified Income Trust (EIT.UN), Canoe Canadian Monthly Income Class, Canoe Canadian Asset Allocation Class, Canoe Canadian Equity Class and Canoe Capital Appreciation Class. Mr. Bob Haber, CFA, who has been managing these funds through Haber Trilix Advisors LP, is retiring from the Canadian mutual fund industry. Canoe thanks Mr. Haber for his portfolio management expertise over the years and wishes him well.
Mr. Taylor is an award-winning portfolio manager and was directly responsible for managing more than $4 billion in assets in his previous position as Vice President and Portfolio Manager, Canadian Equities at BMO Global Asset Management. In the last decade, Mr. Taylor managed the following mandates: BMO Asset Allocation Fund, BMO Equity Fund, Educators Growth Fund, BMO Resource Fund and BMO Global Energy Fund. Mr. Taylor was also an integral member of the asset mix committee responsible for asset allocation decisions with respect to institutional and retail mandates.
“Adding a portfolio manager of Rob’s caliber to our team is just the latest example of Canoe’s commitment to providing best-in-class investment management, service and support for advisors and investors,” said W. Brett Wilson, Chairman of Canoe Financial.
Rob Taylor stated, “I think that there is a real opportunity for a dynamic, entrepreneurial investment fund company in Canada. I am excited to be part of an organization that is piloted by an experienced team with a proven history of successfully growing new businesses. Canoe possesses many of the things that I look for in a stock – strong leadership, alignment of employee interests through its capital structure and solid financial footing.”
“Rob has an impressive track record and I am excited to have him join the Canoe portfolio management team,” said Nevin Markwart, President and CEO of Canoe Financial. “Rob shares Canoe’s vision that Canada is the place to invest, and our investment philosophy that Canada will dramatically benefit from the emergence of developing economies such as China and India which will drive global economic growth.”
