Tralucent Asset Management was founded in July of 2008, and here we present the firm’s various mandates since formation. In addition, you may consider the abilities and commitments of the Portfolio Managers who are the guiding spirit of money management in this company – in global equities, and fixed income. Their past successes and strong track records speak for their abilities.
This composite includes ALL of the Tralucent private accounts that have the mandate to be primarily in equities. The benchmark for all of them is the MSCI World Total Return Index in Canadian dollars. This is a dollar weighted composite with over 170 unique accounts and over 200 unique stock positions as at June 30, 2016.
The results presented are after fees paid by the clients, assuming an MER of 2.15%, and have been converted to Canadian dollars to be directly comparable to the market benchmark.
