Innocap obtains mandate from Canadian institutional investor

Investment firm adapts to specific needs through a custom solution

Montréal, July 1, 2013 – Innocap Investment Management Inc. (“Innocap”), a strategic alliance between National Bank of Canada and BNP Paribas, has announced today it has obtained a CA$200 million mandate from a renowned wealth manager.

Looking for more control over its alternative allocations and for an enhanced investment framework in order to mitigate some of the traditional risks related to hedge funds investments, this Canadian institutional investor selected Innocap to design, implement and operate its managed accounts.

This new mandate clearly shows Innocap’s ability to understand and meet the specific needs of its clients by offering tailored solutions. Through this agreement, Innocap will meet the manager’s non-traditional strategy needs through the integration of two new funds, which will be added to the funds already available in the firm’s Canadian Limited Partnership structure.
