MONTREAL, Jan. 22, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Fiera Capital Corporation (TSX: FSZ) ("Fiera Capital"), one of Canada's leading investment managers, is pleased to announce that the Fiera Capital Global Equity Fund (the "Fund") has once again received Fundata's FundGrade A+ rating.
The Fund's investment team, headed by Nadim Rizk, Vice President and Senior Portfolio Manager, Global Equities, received this award at an event held yesterday evening in Toronto. The Fiera Capital Global Equity Fund previously won this award in 2013. The objective of the Fund is to achieve the highest possible return over the long-term that is consistent with a fundamental investment philosophy, and to provide capital appreciation through a portfolio diversified by region and industry, invested primarily in the U.S. and international markets.
The FundGrade A+ Rating is awarded annually to funds that achieve consistently high FundGrade scores through an entire calendar year. The A+ Rating identifies funds with not only the best risk-adjusted returns but also those demonstrating the highest level of consistency. The FundGrade Rating is an independent, objective and transparent investment fund rating system that uses a cumulative weighted average to determine the annual "best-of-the-best."
"We are honoured by this repeat recognition for one of our top-performing funds," said Mr. Sylvain Roy, Chief Investment Officer and Executive Vice President, Alternative Strategies, at Fiera Capital. "We are succeeding once again in setting ourselves apart in the highly competitive global equity fund sector, thanks to a seasoned and experienced team skillfully led by Nadim Rizk."
