Fiera Capital Selects Eagle as Enterprise Platform

Extends commitment to Eagle with acquisition of Natcan Investment Management 
BOSTON, Jan. 8, 2013 /CNW/ - Eagle Investment Systems LLC, a leading provider 
of financial services technology and a subsidiary of BNY Mellon, today 
announced that Fiera Capital Corporation (TSX: FSZ), a leading independent 
Canadian full-service investment management firm with approximately $55 
billion in assets under management, will implement Eagle's solutions 
throughout its enterprise. 
Fiera Capital's relationship with Eagle was extended through the acquisition 
of long-time Eagle client, Natcan Investment Management. Fiera Capital is 
integrating Natcan's deployment of Eagle's data management solution, 
performance measurement solution, and multi-lingual portal to its current 
operational infrastructure.  The firm is also adding $30 billion in assets to 
the Eagle platform while migrating to Eagle ACCESS(SM), Eagle's secure private 
Fiera Capital announced its acquisition of Natcan in April 2012, making the 
firm one of the largest independent asset managers in Canada. With $25 billion 
in assets under management, Natcan was formerly a subsidiary of National Bank 
of Canada, providing asset management services to pension funds, mutual funds, 
insurance companies, exchange-traded funds, foundations and other 
institutional clients. Natcan has been an Eagle client since 2005. 
"In all of our acquisitions, we look to create efficiencies and find 
cost-savings by leveraging the best providers and services available," said 
Robert Trepanier, senior vice president, Operations and Information 
Technology, Fiera Capital. "In Natcan's case, we saw an opportunity to apply 
its current data management and performance measurement solutions to our 
entire company, thereby reducing multi-vendor complexity and saving time and 
money. Our adoption of Eagle's software and migration to the cloud will enable 
us to establish a firm-wide, state-of-the-art technology solution that is 
secure, universal and will help us to integrate future acquisitions into our 
centralized platform much more easily and efficiently." 
"As a top investment manager in Canada, we saw the need for a leading 
technology provider that understands the industry and can advise us on how to 
best achieve our goals," said Maher Hemissi, vice president of Information 
Technology and Middle-Office, Fiera Capital. "Eagle has the experience and 
qualifications we were looking for in a vendor, and Natcan's success in using 
its platform was an obvious testament to their proven, broad capabilities. 
With Eagle, we now have a solution that is reflective of our place in the 
market and able to grow with us over time."
