Exploring Non-Traditional Income – Part II

In Part II of our Exploring Non-Traditional Income series, we discuss important considerations for Infrastructure, Agriculture, and Private Credit’s potential to deliver defensive income and provide information on solutions offered by Fiera Capital’s boutique investment teams.

Samuel Weiss
Vice President, Institutional Markets

We believe investors need to challenge the status quo of asset allocation and defensive, income-oriented investing in today’s yield environment. Areas of the rapidly growing private markets – infrastructure, agriculture and private credit – may offer more viable solutions, and are each supported by long-term,
structural economic trends.

In the second part of this series, we highlight important considerations for these categories and discuss Fiera Capital’s approach to infrastructure, agriculture and private credit. We also include a snapshot on how open-ended funds work and the advantages this structure may offer investors. Fiera offers non-traditional income solutions in open-ended form.
