Our clients may require capital appreciation for retirement or other savings, protection against inflation or a reliable dividend income. We strive to deliver strong, long term, risk-adjusted performance to match our clients’ needs.

Chief Investment Officer, Equities and Head of UK Equities


Collaboration is our strength. It is our active engagement with clients, with each other and with the companies we invest in that can deliver the best outcomes for our clients.

Our equity team’s interaction with our global network of investment professionals gives us a holistic view. Local market intelligence is constantly shared and investigated, as are macroeconomic perspectives. Equity portfolio managers and analysts use these insights to help in identifying profitable new investment opportunities for our clients.

As managers of around $112 billion CAD of equities1, we often have privileged access to the companies in which we invest. We take this responsibility seriously. As committed, long-term investors we believe in the highest standards of corporate governance and work closely with senior management, using our shareholdings to promote positive change. This is one way we help build strong companies that can create long-term value for our investors.

Our clients seek long-term, sustainable returns with skilfully managed risk. With our high conviction approach to investing, along with active engagement, we offer products across a range of equity markets and investment strategies. Through these, we can deliver equity investment solutions that focus on the meaningful outcomes our clients need, wherever they are in the world.
