Canoe Defensive Global Balanced Fund combines the award-winning asset management expertise of Canoe Financial, Fiera Capital and Aegon Asset Management to create a best-in-class multi-asset mandate.

Equity Market Protection Beyond the Traditional Balanced Approach

The global equity allocation is managed by Fiera Capital.  It combines the proven alpha generation of Nadim Rizk and the Global Equity Team with the innovative Risk Management Overlay (RMO) strategy of the Systematic Investment Strategies team. 

The RMO allows equity risk to be quickly reduced to levels lower than other traditional balanced funds during times of market volatility, without reducing equity exposure.

Fixed Income allocation is managed by Marc Goldfried, CIO & Head of Fixed Income at Canoe Financial, and includes the portfolio management expertise of Aegon Asset Management. 

The portfolio accesses asset classes across the full credit spectrum. Canoe Defensive Global Balanced Fund is actively managed, combining top-down and bottom-up analysis to maximize value added opportunities and generate income throughout business cycle stages and varying macroeconomic conditions.
