Fiera Capital Corporation is expanding its distribution reach into the Asia-Pacific market through a partnership with Nissay Asset Management Corporation, the investment management arm of Nippon Life Insurance Company.

Under this new agreement, Fiera Capital is partnering with Nissay AM in a sub-advisory capacity, commencing with the launch of a long-only global equity ex-Japan strategy that will be available to Nissay AM clients through a Jersey-based collective investment fund.

“We are seeing a growing need for global mandates and investors who consistently seek equity products with attractive characteristics,” says Kiyoshi Ujihara, president and CEO of Nissay AM.
