Canoe Financial announces Fiera Capital as new subadvisor for its U.S. equity mandate

CALGARY, Alberta, June 11, 2019 -- Canoe Financial is pleased to announce a name change and a new sub-advisor to strengthen its U.S. equity offering. On June 24, 2019, Canoe U.S. Equity Income Portfolio Class will be renamed Canoe Defensive U.S. Equity Portfolio Class and the sub-advisor of the fund will change to Fiera Capital Corporation (“Fiera Capital”) on or about the same date.

Canoe Defensive U.S. Equity Portfolio Class will be managed by Fiera Capital’s Global Equity team, led by Nadim Rizk.  The fund will also employ a unique risk overlay strategy to minimize drawdowns, managed by Fiera Capital’s Systematic Investment Strategies team.

“Canoe’s retail partnership with Fiera Capital continues to strengthen,” says Darcy Hulston, President and CEO of Canoe Financial.  “Canoe is a firm that takes pride in our active management, and we are very excited to be able to offer this unique mandate with the active management capabilities of Nadim and his team, coupled with the risk management capabilities of the Systematic Investment Strategies team.

Mr. Hulston further added, “As market volatility continues to increase, so too will the need for proven portfolio management expertise and strategies to mitigate risk.   Canoe Defensive U.S. Equity Portfolio Class will offer both.” 

“Fiera Capital and Canoe remain well aligned on the needs of Canadian investors, and are committed to maximizing the value proposition to advisors and their clients through the combination of their respective strengths in investment product management, development and distribution,” said Jean-Philippe Lemay, President and COO of Fiera Capital’s Canadian Division.
