STRONG Nations Currency

Investment approach

The Fiera Capital STRONG Nations Currency strategy seeks to generate positive returns with limited drawdowns over full market cycles through investments in currencies, securities, and instruments that are associated with strong nations. The Fund focuses on the currencies of nations with healthy economies and financial systems, more democratic governance, rule of law, transparency and with societies that are becoming more free. Improvements in these qualities have tended to correlate well with currency performance over time. We will also seek to hedge foreign currency exposures back into the dollar during periods of dollar rally.
