“Developing quantitative tools that will provide a better structure for decision-making, will strengthen the investment process and mitigate risks,” according to Christian Fournier, Director, Authentic Asset Management, to whom Mr. Trudel will report. “Furthermore, it is important to build and implement processes and techniques that improve the execution of trades. I am confident in Martin’s ability to add value in these and other ways.”
“We felt especially encouraged to hire Martin with the recent institutional investor interest to launch the Authentic Event Driven Fund L.P. in partnership with the PGEQ and Innocap Investment Management Inc.,” commented Duncan Webster, Chief Executive Officer, Authentic Asset Management. AUTHENTIC’s event driven strategy has an 18-month track record of delivering a positive returns with negligible correlation to the equity markets, which positions it as a true diversifier for institutional investors.

Mr. Trudel’s work will support these activities.
