TORONTO, July 27, 2015 /CNW/ - Morneau Shepell Asset & Risk Management Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Morneau Shepell, is pleased to announce the launch of Morneau Shepell Opportunistic Fund L.P. – a fund dedicated to institutional investors, endowments and foundations seeking access to a diverse portfolio of alternative assets.
The fund will identify and invest in niche opportunities in diverse asset classes such as equity real estate and infrastructure, opportunistic credit, and private equity strategies.
"By providing a wider spectrum and higher expected returns than traditional core alternatives, Morneau Shepell Asset & Risk Management's Opportunistic Fund will give smaller scale investors access to a unique and diverse choice of investments," said Rob Boston, Partner with Morneau Shepell Asset & Risk Management.
"The Fund is an opportunity for endowments and foundations to diversify their portfolios with alternative asset classes on the heels of some important regulatory changes. To our knowledge, this is the only fund of its kind in Canada."
Recently, Canada Revenue Agency modified a regulation to allow endowments and foundations to now participate in the legal structure necessary to take part in this type of investment.
