Copeland Capital Management hires head of international strategies


Copeland Capital Management has appointed Erik B Granade as Head of International Equities. Granade was formerly with Invesco, where he served as Portfolio Manager and Chief Investment Officer for their global equity team.  

Granade began his career as an Equity Analyst for PNC Bank in Philadelphia, where he later became an International Equity Portfolio Manager at Provident Capital Management, PNC’s institutional money management division. He also served as Head of International Equities at Cashman, Farrell & Associates, a privately-owned money management firm in Philadelphia.  He is a CFA charterholder and a graduate of Trinity College in Hartford, CT.

"We are thrilled to add someone of Erik’s high caliber to the team as we expand the application of our Dividend Growth philosophy to international markets," says Edward C Rorer, Chairman of Copeland Capital Management. The addition of Granade comes at a time of rapid growth for Copeland Capital. 

Eric C Brown, Chief Executive Officer, says:  "Our research suggests that the superior performance and lower risk characteristics that can be achieved by investing in Dividend Growth stocks are not unique to the United States. We believe that, with the addition of Granade our process can now be replicated in markets across the globe. As Head of International Equities, Granade will lead the launch of both traditional and tactical International Dividend Growth products, as well as a Global Dividend Growth hedge fund."

The firm has increased assets under management significantly over the last twelve months, led by strong investment performance and the launch of tactical strategies utilizing the same underlying Dividend Growth philosophy as Copeland’s traditional product line.  The firm’s first mutual fund, an All Cap Tactical Dividend Growth product, has raised over USD300 million since it was launched just over a year ago.

"My extensive experience and background in international markets, coupled with Copeland’s interest in expanding beyond its impressive domestic platform, make this move a natural fit," says Granade. "I am excited to be joining such a successful and rapidly growing firm that shares my passion for Dividend Growth investing.  I look forward to working closely with Copeland’s very strong investment team and helping to bolster the firm’s results going forward."
