TORONTO, June 6, 2013 – GMP Capital Inc. (GMP) (TSX:GMP) today announced that it is changing the name and brand of
its asset management business to CQI Capital Management L.P. (CQI), effective immediately. The new corporate name and
brand underscores the strategic repositioning of the business and the alignment of its mandate with the franchise-building
efforts of GMP’s business partners at Richardson GMP Limited. In conjunction with the rebranding, the GMPIM Equity
Opportunities Funds has been renamed the CQI Equity Opportunities Funds.
“The rebranding initiative is a strategic component to CQI’s evolution, which clearly communicates the drivers of CQI’s
investment management process - Cyclical and Quantitative Investing,” said Dan McClure, Chief Executive Officer, CQI. Mr.
McClure continued “With an experienced team of investment professionals with proven track records of performance, we are
looking confidently at the future and our prospects for growth.”
Concurrently, CQI also announced the launch of the CQI Income Opportunities Fund, an equity-focused income fund which
seeks to provide investors with stable returns while effectively reducing downside volatility and a view toward wealth
preservation. The fund’s investment strategy will be opportunity led, targeting a broad set of securities across the North
American equity investment universe.
Commenting on the launch of the CQI Income Opportunities Fund, Mr. McClure said, “The combination of our depth of
expertise together with CQI’s proprietary investment process and robust risk management represents an ideal platform to
identify and capitalize on a wide set of investment opportunities that we believe exist in North American equities.”
Under the leadership of Chief Executive Officer Dan McClure, CQI will remain focused on providing unique and differentiated
investment management products and services to high-net-worth individuals and institutional investors. CQI follows a unique
macro-driven, quantitatively-informed investment process that is supported by a fundamental due diligence approach for
security selection and an integrated and comprehensive risk management process.
As previously announced, CQI continues to manage the CQI Equity Opportunities Funds and the Genesis Partners Fund LP,
ensuring that investors in those funds continue to benefit from the same management team that is currently overseeing their assets.
“We are fortunate to have GMP as a strategic partner, which will allow CQI to operate independently within the framework of a
much larger organization that offers scale and strength to our business,” said McClure. “We are also energized by the prospect
of working closely with Richardson GMP to identify opportunities to develop customized investment offerings for their
extensive and sophisticated high-net-worth clientele.”
