Our People


The Louisbourg investment team is composed of fourteen investment professionals (4 CFA charter holders as well as 4 that hold Master's Degrees in related fields) with a support team of four. The investment professionals are located in both the Moncton and Halifax offices. Our team is small by design, as we believe that it increases our accountability, better facilitates consensus decision making, and eliminates bureaucratic paralysis. We have individual Portfolio Managers at the head of our Canadian Equity, Foreign Equity, and Fixed Income mandates, with analysts beneath each. Our teams are structured to improve accountability and to better align our performance objectives against relevant benchmarks. We also believe that it generates improved awareness by requiring our portfolio managers to keep their finger on the pulse of their respective products. We supplement this generalist approach by using sector specific, sell-side research analysts where necessary.

Assumption Life provides deep resources in corporate accounting, human resources, portfolio accounting and legal matters. This allows the Louisbourg Team to be totally focused on investment management for our clients while being well supported with significant resources.
