Fiera Capital Announces March 31, 2022, Preliminary Assets Under Management and Q1 2022 Financial Results Date

MONTREAL, April 19, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ – Fiera Capital Corporation (TSX: FSZ) (“Fiera Capital” or the “Company”), a leading independent asset management firm, today reported its preliminary estimate of assets under management (“AUM”) of approximately C$174.5 billion as at March 31, 2022, compared to C$188.3 billion as at December 31, 2021.

Following a strong close to 2021, the geopolitical backdrop and volatility of global financial markets this year have naturally affected our assets under management, said Jean-Philippe Lemay, President and Chief Executive Officer. The reduction of C$13.8 billion, or 7.3%, was entirely borne by our Public Markets platform, which was exposed to the combination of negative equity markets performance and rising interest rates that impacted equity and fixed income investment strategies. We are pleased that our strategic priority of elevating our Private Markets offering continues to gather momentum with AUM growing by 6.7% to C$16.9 billion in the first quarter of 2022. The breadth of our investment platform, including stable returns provided by private markets solutions, affirms the resiliency of our business model to withstand periods of macroeconomic uncertainty.”
