Hillsdale Offers Investors the Potential of Global Small Cap Equities, Today, With the Launch of its Global Small Cap Equity Fund

Toronto, December 1, 2015 

This Fund provides investors with the enormous potential of global breadth across countries, industries, stocks and currencies.  With access to 25 countries, 17,000 stocks, using 1500 return drivers, in 18 currencies, the potential for value added and diversification for Canadian investors is beyond comparison relative to any single asset class. At its heart, such scale provides unparalleled opportunities for Canadian investors to add value and diversify risks in their portfolio. 

Hillsdale’s Global Small Cap Fund leverages Hillsdale’s 19-year first quartile track record in the active management of Canadian and US small cap equities. Hillsdale’s proprietary multi-strategy stock selection process has been custom designed for each country and region.  This process results in a core investment style resulting in strong fundamental characteristics, consistent value added and a smoother investment journey. For investors, this approach is a welcome and timely complement to Canadian portfolios providing further diversification benefits across countries, industries, stocks and currencies. 

“Hillsdale’s quantitative investment approach is perfectly suited for a Global small cap strategy as the universe of eligible stocks is over 17,000,” stated CEO and CIO Christopher Guthrie. “We are able to analyze, evaluate and rank this entire stock universe every 30 minutes and select only the top ranked stocks for the Fund.” 

The Fund, which will be available for investment starting December 1st, 2015, is denominated in U.S. dollars and has three separate classes to meet investor needs, including U.S. dollars, Canadian dollars and a Canadian dollar currency hedged class.  There are 16 professionals on the Hillsdale Global Small Cap Team which is led by Alfred Sum, MSC, CFA, FRM and Senior Portfolio Manager.
