MONTREAL, June 26, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Fiera Quantum Limited Partnership
("Fiera Quantum"), a subsidiary of leading Canadian investment
management firm Fiera Capital Corporation (TSX: FSZ), is pleased to
officially introduce the Fiera Quantum Income Opportunities Fund (the
"Fund"). Fiera Quantum is also proud to announce the appointment of
Angus Rogers as Senior Portfolio Manager with the firm and as
co-manager of the Fund.
Available to individual investors, the Fund aims to provide investors
with returns similar to those associated with traditional high-yield
strategies, but with less volatility. The Fund will invest in a
diversified portfolio of income-generating securities throughout a
company's capital structure, while having the flexibility to hedge
credit and interest-rate risk.
"With the bond market reaching an important inflection point, active
fixed income solutions will become critical to producing returns and
preserving capital for investors moving forward," stated Jason Marks,
Executive Chairman of Fiera Quantum. "As such, the launch of this Fund
is quite timely, providing investors with the opportunity to enhance
the diversification of their investments and improve the risk-return
profile of their portfolios."
Seasoned High-Yield Credit Trading Team
The Fund will be co-managed by Angus Rogers, who joins Fiera Quantum
with 25 years' experience in both U.S. and Canadian high-yield
securities as well as in a variety of other fixed income products.

New York where he was a managing director at RBC Capital Markets, and
most recently head of High-Yield Trading and co-head of the Leverage
Finance Department at Jefferies Group LLC.
"We are pleased to have Angus join the team and are very proud to have
been able to bring some of Wall Street's top talent north of the
border. Teaming up with Greg Foss, we now have the most seasoned
high-yield credit trading team in Canada," concluded Mr. Marks.
