Eaton Vance launches four equity funds sub-advised by Hexavest

RELATED TOPICS​

Eaton Vance Management has launched four Eaton Vance-sponsored mutual funds sub-advised by Hexavest, a Montreal-based investment manager in which Eaton Vance recently acquired a 49 per cent ownership interest. 

The four funds are:

Eaton Vance Hexavest Emerging Markets Equity Fund
Eaton Vance Hexavest Global Equity Fund
Eaton Vance Hexavest International Equity Fund
Eaton Vance Hexavest US Equity Fund

Each fund seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation by employing a predominately top-down investment style that incorporates proprietary fundamental research and quantitative models. 

Portfolio allocations are based primarily on Hexavest’s analysis of the macroeconomic environment, valuations of markets and the sentiment of investors. 

Under normal market conditions, each fund will invest at least 80 per cent of its net assets in equity securities of the targeted geographic region. 

The funds are managed by a team of Hexavest investment professionals led by Vital Proulx, president and chief investment officer.

"By working collaboratively with Eaton Vance, we are able to introduce US investors to what we believe is a unique investment management approach that leverages research, analysis and quantitative tools," says Proulx.

"The launch of these new strategies provides access to a broad range of equity solutions tailored to meet specific investment needs," says Eaton Vance chief equity investment officer Duncan W. Richardson (pictured). "The Hexavest team has worked together for more than 20 years and has a proven track record of global equity investing."
