Bridgehouse Asset Managers, the new retail trade name for Brandes Investment Partners & Co., signals the expanded offering of investment products from three asset management firms, the Toronto-based company said Thursday.
Bridgehouse distributes investments from San Diego-based Brandes Investment Partners. L.P., Toronto-based Sionna Investment Managers Inc., and New York City-based Lazard Asset Management (LAM).
Operating from Brandes’ Toronto offices, Bridgehouse will provide investment products and services to Canadian investors and financial advisors.
“The Bridgehouse brand creates a powerful distinction between the investment management of our solutions and our marketing efforts in Canada. Bridgehouse is about providing direct access — the bridge — to these managers to financial advisors and their clients.” says Carol Lynde, Bridgehouse president and COO.
Bridgehouse branding is reflected in the firm’s new website, www.bridgehousecanada.com, as well as in marketing efforts and investor reporting in combination with Brandes LP, Sionna and LAM branding.
As a related element of this branding reorganization, effective May 29, the family of prospectus qualified mutual funds known as the Brandes Funds are re-captioned as the Bridgehouse Funds with five funds renamed.
“Bridgehouse Asset Managers has established a unique and collaborative model that is enduring and trustworthy,” says Brandes CEO Oliver Murray. “We have built a solid, proven structure that creates the stability investors and advisors are seeking by aligning the long-term interests of all parties. We believe ‘Bridgehouse’ properly captures the enduring nature of our relationships with Sionna and Lazard Asset Management.”
