Fiera Quantum launches Income Opportunities Fund
Fiera Quantum Limited Partnership has launched the Fiera Quantum Income Opportunities Fund and has appointed Angus Rogers as senior portfolio manager and co-manager of the fund.
Available to individual investors, the fund aims to provide investors with returns similar to those associated with traditional high-yield strategies, but with less volatility.
The fund will invest in a diversified portfolio of income-generating securities throughout a company's capital structure, while having the flexibility to hedge credit and interest-rate risk.
"With the bond market reaching an important inflection point, active fixed income solutions will become critical to producing returns and preserving capital for investors moving forward," says Jason Marks, executive chairman of Fiera Quantum. "As such, the launch of this fund is quite timely, providing investors with the opportunity to enhance the diversification of their investments and improve the risk-return profile of their portfolios."
The fund will be co-managed by Rogers, who joins Fiera Quantum with 25 years' experience in both US and Canadian high-yield securities as well as in a variety of other fixed income products. Prior to his appointment at Fiera Quantum, Rogers spent 14 years in New York where he was a managing director at RBC Capital Markets, and most recently head of High-yield trading and co-head of the leverage finance department at Jefferies Group.
"We are pleased to have Angus join the team and are very proud to have been able to bring some of Wall Street's top talent north of the border. Teaming up with Greg Foss, we now have the most seasoned high-yield credit trading team in Canada," says Marks.
