Innocap boasts vibrant
achievements in the past year

Focused on its dedicated managed account business model, the firm considerably grows assets under management

Montréal, May 21, 2014 – 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 ( to put Innocap’s expertise to the forefront and the creation of investment infrastructures in two new jurisdictions.
