Bridgehouse Asset Managers introduces currency-hedged classes for three mutual funds


Bridgehouse Asset Managers has introduced currency-hedged classes for three of its mutual funds. 

Currency hedged classes are being added to Brandes Global Equity Fund, Brandes US Equity Fund and Lazard Global Equity Income Fund. They will be available across all purchase options (traditional and Bridgehouse Private Client). For these classes the developed markets foreign currency exposure will be hedged to the Canadian dollar.

"Fluctuating currencies concern advisors and investors. We believe hedging decisions are best made at the individual client level. We are offering a currency-hedged option on our global mandates to provide advisors the ability to manage the overall currency risks within their clients' broader portfolios." says Bridgehouse President & COO Carol Lynde. "We strive to expand our platform with solutions we believe are enduring and will benefit Canadian investors over the long term. This option aligns with that goal and responds to currency fluctuation concerns."

Effective 22 April, 2015, the name of the Brandes Emerging Markets Equity Fund has been changed to the Brandes Emerging Markets Value Fund to align with the global naming convention of similar emerging markets portfolios managed by Brandes Investment Partners.
