At Fiera Capital, research is much more than a specialty confined to a specific department. It is the core of our investment approach and the basis of all of our management processes. Our internal fundamental research capabilities come in many forms:
- Independent bottom-up fundamental research is the cornerstone of our Canadian and foreign equity strategies as each of our teams conducts, on average, 300 to 400 company visits and management interviews annually;
- Rigorous top-down fundamental research, independent of sell-side analysis and of credit rating agencies, is the cornerstone of our actively managed fixed income strategies, resulting in opinions that are independent of market views;
- In-house fundamental economic and market research drives our asset allocation process which is designed to optimize returns while striving to preserve capital in all market environments;
- The combination of disciplined portfolio construction and true entrepreneurial values enables Fiera Capital to offer innovative solutions, customized to the specific needs of our clients.
Risk management is a pillar of Fiera Capital’s investment culture. Embedded within all of our investment processes is a rigorous approach to risk management where we strive to achieve optimal performance within an appropriate level of risk. Furthermore, the monitoring of a broad range of portfolio metrics is performed by Fiera Capital’s Performance Measurement and Risk Management group, ensuring complete independence from the investment function.
