Fiera Launches Private Infrastructure Fund


    Fiera Capital Corporation, has launched a private infrastructure fund which provides Canadian accredited investors with access to investments in core infrastructure assets, previously only available to institutional and private wealth investors. The company feels that a wider group of investors from the retail channel should have access to and invest in infrastructure projects backed by creditworthy counterparties, opportunities which are typically limited to institutional investors. “In addition to providing accredited investors with increased portfolio diversification, the fund seeks to offer attractive long-term returns generated from cash yield and capital appreciation. The fund will aim to generate stable and predictable cash flows providing high single-digit return per annum over five-year moving periods,” says François Bourdon, chief investment solutions officer at Fiera.
