Canoe Financial Expands Product Offering with Launch of New Balanced and Fixed Income Mutual Funds
CALGARY, January 7, 2013 – Canoe Financial LP, one of the fastest growing mutual fund companies in Canada, today introduced two new income-oriented mutual funds. These two new funds expand Canoe’s mutual fund line-up in the important Global Neutral Balanced and Global Fixed Income categories.
The new funds, available now, are the Canoe North American Monthly Income Fund and Canoe Strategic High Yield Fund.
“In today’s constantly changing financial environment, investors are looking for investment solutions that can keep pace with this continuous evolution,” said W. Brett Wilson, chairman of Canoe Financial. “We had that top of mind with this expansion of our mutual fund lineup. These two new funds are just the latest example of Canoe’s commitment to providing quality products to meet investor and advisor needs.”
AEGON Capital Management Inc. (ACM) has been appointed portfolio manager for the two new funds in Canoe’s line-up. Globally, AEGON Asset Management companies are responsible for managing in excess of US$300 billion and are widely recognized for strong, consistent returns and astute risk management. In Canada, ACM manages $8.8 billion for a range of clients and has generated highly rated and ranked performance in its income-focused funds over the past ten years.
“Demand for balanced and fixed-income investment solutions is on the rise,” added Nevin G. Markwart, CFA, Canoe Financial’s president and chief executive officer. “Many investors tell us they are looking for ways to generate income in retirement. Others simply prefer the reduced volatility associated with income-oriented portfolios. Canoe is excited to introduce these two global, income-oriented funds to investors and advisors across the country.”
