“Reams is excited to partner with Canoe Financial to bring our time-tested unconstrained fixed income strategy to Canadian investors,” said Mark Egan. “Throughout the vetting process, Canoe’s innovative and client-centric approach to distribution resonated strongly with our team. Our shared ethos – belief in active management, independent thought, and serving as stewards of our clients’ capital – also reinforces our confidence that Canoe is an ideal partner in an important market for Reams.”
