Investing with Genus

At Genus, our investment strategy is shaped by a global view that examines asset value, growth, expectation, momentum, quality and sustainability. This diversified approach helps ensure our fossil-free investments are strong.

Overall Portfolio Strategy

Securities are selected by specialist teams with in-depth expertise in each asset class, and a clearly defined process with proven results. Portfolios combine our expertise in stock selection and asset allocation with the complementary skill set of Addenda Capital, one of Canada’s leading fixed-income firms.

 

The overall asset allocation is driven by our DynaMix process, which evaluates more than 100 proven market indicators to forecast monthly asset class performance. Through these insights, Genus increases weightings to attractive areas and reduces exposure to those presenting more risk.

 

DynaMix insights help us systematically increase exposure to attractive asset classes and avoid those presenting more risk.
