While the public markets have been in the spotlight due to the exceptional losses, private market investments are not unsusceptible to the major changes taking place, such as the fall in commodity prices and interest rates. That said, Fiera Capital’s Private Alternative teams manage their mandates with a long-term outlook, and as such, have built portfolios that are capable of withstanding temporary market dislocations. Strong covenants, trusted relationships, deep underwriting analysis, disciplined monitoring and thorough experience in their asset classes are the tools that our managers use to build strong portfolios.
