Charlemagne Capital rebranded to Fiera Capital

Emerging markets specialist boutique Charlemagne Capital, which was acquired by Montreal-based asset management firm Fiera Capital in December 2016, now operates under the Fiera Capital brand name, effective from 1 December 2017. The team, formerly known as Charlemagne Capital, now forms the basis of Fiera Capital’s European division, which is headquartered in London.

The name change marks the final step for Charlemagne’s integration into the Fiera Capital team, with the European division specialising in frontier and emerging market asset classes from its London base together with operations in the Isle of Man and a branch office in Germany. This rebrand allows Fiera Capital to advance its growing global presence, now with a firm foothold in the European market. This announcement coincided with the launch of two new funds, within the global and North American sectors, as the group plans to continue to introduce more of its North American strategies to the European market to build its presence in the region.

The Elite Rated Charlemagne Magna Emerging Markets Dividend Fund has been renamed the Magna Emerging Markets Dividend Fund as a result of this move. There will be no further changes to the fund as it maintains the same investment process, philosophy and fund management team, albeit operating under a different company name.

Vincent Duhamel, Fiera Capital global president and Chief Operating Officer, highlighted how Charlemagne’s emerging and frontier strategies would add to Fiera Capital’s global equities capabilities to provide clients with even more diversification opportunities from the group’s offerings.
