Client-Driven Approach

Fiera Capital’s highly experienced team combines investment and actuarial expertise with sophisticated risk management systems to attain client objectives while identifying, quantifying and appropriately managing client specific risks.

A shared characteristic of our structured fixed income strategies is that they do not adhere to a “one size fits all” approach. Fiera Capital’s investment professionals work closely with prospective and existing clients to fully explore various options and ensure that long-term value is added through the design of personalized mandates that best capture our clients’ risk and return objectives.
