Fiera Capital acquires HNW and institutional investment firm CGOV Asset Management Français

Fiera Capital Corporation is to acquire CGOV Asset Management (CGOV), an Ontario-based investment management firm focused on high-net-worth and institutional investors with approximately CAD5.3 billion in assets under management as of 31 December 2017.

"We are excited to combine CGOV with Fiera Capital to enhance our leading Canadian high-net-worth platform and further strengthen our institutional investment management capabilities. CGOV has a rich history of success and growth and brings a proven management team," says Jean-Guy Desjardins, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Fiera Capital.
"With a solid base in Ontario and Western Canada, the critical mass gained as a result of the transaction allows Fiera Capital to be a competitive force in the highly attractive high-net-worth segment across Canada. The transaction is Fiera Capital's strongest commitment yet to developing leading solutions for both existing and new high-net-worth clients," says Jean-Philippe Lemay (pictured), President and Chief Operating Officer of Fiera Capital's Canadian Division. "Together, we will clearly be stronger, and are excited about the prospect of also growing our institutional offering through the addition of CGOV's investment expertise within Fiera Capital's already strong investment platform."
