Fiera Capital Introduces New Global Equity Focused Mutual Fund


NEW YORK, May 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Fiera Capital Inc. ("Fiera Capital" or "the Firm"), an affiliate of Fiera Capital Corporation (FSZ.TO), launches its new Fiera Capital Global Equity Focused Fund (the "Fund"). The Fund is invested in a concentrated portfolio of the Global Equity Team's highest conviction ideas from across global, developed, and select emerging markets and seeks to achieve capital appreciation. The Fund, which is available through an Investor Class and an Institutional Class, will typically hold 15 to 30 stock positions.

"We are proud to offer this institutional-grade strategy from our highly regarded Global Equity team to individual investors and investment advisors in a public fund vehicle," said Benjamin Thompson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Fiera Capital's US divison, Fiera Capital Inc. "We believe it is an attractive solution for investors searching for exposure in developed markets and flexibility to invest in emerging markets and it also allows individual investors to have access to a top-tier manager."

The Fund is managed by Nadim Rizk, Senior Vice President and Lead Portfolio Manager, and Andrew Chan, Vice President and Portfolio Manager, Global Equity. The team currently manages over US$15 billion in assets, and is responsible for the Fiera Capital Global Equity, International Equity and US Equity quality growth strategies. The Fund's Portfolio Managers manage another investment strategy that is substantially similar to that of the Fund. The Fiera Capital Global Equity Focused strategy (the "Strategy") was originally launched in August 2014 to institutional clients.
