Available to all types of investors, the Funds aim to provide long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in U.S. and global equity securities through the existing Fiera Capital U.S. and Global Equity Funds.

The Defensive Funds employ risk and portfolio management techniques to reduce equity exposure with the goal of ensuring that downside risks are limited. Such techniques include purchasing put options to limit downside risk, writing call options to enhance long-term returns and reduce hedging costs, risk-exposure targeting, and currency hedges, as well as implementing stop loss limits to reduce equity exposure.
