Eaton Vance Management has launched four new Eaton Vance-sponsored mutual funds sub-advised by Hexavest, a Montreal-based investment manager in which Eaton Vance recently acquired a 49% ownership interest.
The four Funds are:
- Eaton Vance Hexavest Emerging Markets Equity Fund (Class A: EHEAX, Class I: EHEIX)
- Eaton Vance Hexavest Global Equity Fund (Class A: EHGAX, Class I: EHGIX)
- Eaton Vance Hexavest International Equity Fund (Class A: EHIAX, Class I: EHIIX)
- Eaton Vance Hexavest U.S. Equity Fund (Class A: EHUAX, Class I: EHUIX)
The funds are managed by a team of Hexavest investment professionals led by Vital Proulx, president and chief investment officer.
“By working collaboratively with Eaton Vance, we are able to introduce U.S investors to what we believe is a unique investment management approach that leverages research, analysis and quantitative tools,” stated Proulx.
Based in Montreal, Hexavest, which was founded in 2004, provides discretionary management of equity and tactical asset allocation strategies to institutions in Canada, the United States, Europe and the Asia Pacific region. As of July 31, Hexavest managed $10.8 billion of client assets invested primarily in global and global ex-U.S. equity mandates.
