Fiera Capital rings TSX opening bell to mark its tenth anniversary
MONTREAL, Nov. 27, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Fiera Capital Corporation (TSX: FSZ)
("Fiera" or "the Firm"), a leading Canadian investment management firm, is
proud to ring in its tenth anniversary at the TSX opening ceremony,
celebrating a decade of entrepreneurship, innovation, and a passion to succeed.
"The financial markets are at the very core of our business. For this reason,
celebrating our tenth anniversary by ringing the TSX opening bell is
particularly meaningful for us. I am very proud of the firm Fiera Capital has
become in such a short amount of time, a success I share with my dedicated and
talented team of investment professionals, many of which have been with the
Firm since its very beginnings," said Jean-Guy Desjardins, Chairman, C.E.O.
and C.I.O of Fiera Capital.
Founded by Jean-Guy Desjardins in 2003, Fiera Capital began as a
Montreal-based investment firm with $5 billion in assets under management and
less than 50 employees. Through organic growth and ten successful strategic
acquisitions, including one in 2011 that doubled its size, Fiera Capital has
become the third largest independent asset manager in Canada with over $67
billion under management.
With over 400 employees across North America and offices in Montreal, Toronto,
Calgary, Vancouver and Halifax, as well as a growing footprint in the U.S with
offices in New York and Los Angeles, Fiera Capital has become a true leader in
its field. Following a decade of aggressive growth, the Firm continues to
execute on its plans to become a dominant player across North America and aims
to have over $150 billion in assets under management within five years.
Mr. Desjardins added: "I look forward to many more successes over the next
several years as we aim to become a real contender in the investment
management industry on a North American scale. I am confident in our ability
to accomplish these ambitious goals thanks to, notably, our strong foundation,
our research-driven investment approach and our team of talented professionals
with a passion for excellence and a drive for success."
