Toronto, ON, March 29, 2018 – Ninepoint Partners LP, an independent, active manager of specialty investment solutions, has announced the launch of Ninepoint Concentrated Canadian Equity Fund.
The fund, which will focus on a concentrated portfolio of select Canadian companies, will be be sub-advised by Toronto-based Scheer Rowlett, an affiliate of Connor Clark and Lunn Financial Group. Scheer Rowlett’s Lloyd Rowlett and Rob Dionne have extensive experience in managing Canadian equity and balanced portfolios for pension plans, mutual funds, corporations, foundations, endowments and high net worth investors.
“We’re excited to partner with the CCL/Scheer Rowlett team and with Lloyd, who brings over 20 years of experience with Canadian equities,” says Ninepoint Partners’ Managing Partner James Fox. “Scheer Rowlett’s long-term, value-oriented approach has a long track record of success and we’re excited to give our clients access to that approach.”
The fund will use an in-depth, bottom up approach to invest in a diversified portfolio of Canadian equity securities.
“The fund encapsulates a ‘best ideas approach,’ which has contributed to our consistently strong track record,” says Lloyd Rowlett, Scheer Rowlett’s President and Lead Portfolio Manager. “We look forward to working with the Ninepoint team who share our independent thinking and entrepreneurial spirit.”
Dedicated to diligent research and risk management practices, identifying industries and companies with long-term growth potential not yet recognized by the market, the new fund will invest in a concentrated portfolio of 15-25 core holdings expected to outperform the broader market over a reasonable time period.
Rather than trying to determine the next fad or time the markets, the Ninepoint Concentrated Canadian Equity Fund will focus on each company’s earnings-ability, capital structure, management capability and competitive position.
