New Relationship Introduces GQG Partners' Adaptive Approach to Quality-Focused Investing to Canada, Expanding Bridgehouse's Platform of Independent Investment Solutions
TORONTO, Sept. 30, 2020 /CNW/ - Bridgehouse Asset Managers (Bridgehouse) and GQG Partners LLC (GQG Partners) have formed a new collaboration to exclusively offer GQG Partners mutual funds to Canadian investors. Effective today, Bridgehouse launches two new funds: GQG Partners Global Quality Equity Fund and GQG Partners International Quality Equity Fund. With more than US$50 billion in assets under management, GQG Partners employs an adaptive approach to seeking quality companies at reasonable market prices in offering four long-only equity strategies (global, international, emerging markets and U.S.). GQG Partners is a majority employee-owned investment manager co-founded in 2016 by prominent investor Rajiv Jain. Prior to the founding of GQG Partners, Mr. Jain was the co-CEO, Chief Investment Officer and Head of Equities of Vontobel Asset Management with a career now spanning more than 25 years.
"Advisors and investors are looking for a way forward in today's uncertain marketplace to ensure their portfolios remain whole and are positioned for success. Rajiv Jain and his team at GQG Partners have successfully compounded wealth for investors while delivering exceptional risk-adjusted returns throughout various market environments. That's just the kind of leadership investors need right now," says Carol Lynde, president and CEO of Bridgehouse Asset Managers. "Canadians look for diverse options when it comes to investing their hard-earned money and we are committed to providing just that. The addition of GQG Partners to our platform builds upon and complements our existing robust offering of investment solutions through four independent managers."
"Bridgehouse provides a comprehensive platform for GQG Partners to reach a broader spectrum of investors across Canada, and I believe our enduring and distinctive approach to quality and experience in adapting to different market conditions will resonate," says GQG Partners co-founder, Chairman and CIO Rajiv Jain. "Protecting and compounding capital while aligning with clients is paramount in our business."
