Innocap Boasts Vibrant Achievements in the Past Year

 Focused on its dedicated managed account business model, the firm considerably  grows assets under management  MONTREAL, May 22, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Innocap Investment Management Inc.  (''Innocap''), a strategic alliance between National Bank of Canada and BNP  Paribas, is pleased to announce that focusing on its dedicated managed  accounts business model has led to a significant increase in the average size  of the funds on the Innocap platform while better meeting its clients' needs.  This new direction has also led to a decrease in the number of commingled  accounts as they will no longer be the focus of the organization going forward.  Innocap's strategy has also enabled it to increase its assets under management  ("AUM") by 23%(1) and is setting its sights on further growth. "Innocap  recently added one of the world's largest asset managers to its platform  relationship", explained François Rivard, Innocap's President and Chief  Executive Officer. "Given our healthy pipeline, we are confident that the  platform's AUM will continue to increase significantly capitalizing on the  past months trend". Innocap has also once again made HFM Week's Top 10 list of  the largest worldwide managed account platforms.  Other achievements highlighting Innocap's growth and momentum during this past  year consist of its inclusion to the Hedge Fund Standards Board, its  registration as an investment advisor with the U.S. Securities and Exchange  Commission, the launch of a new website (www.innocap.com) to put Innocap's  expertise to the forefront and the creation of investment infrastructures in  two new jurisdictions.
