Institutional Investors: Introduction

Cardinal Capital Management is proud to be an emerging presence in institutional investing in Canada. By managing large cap, value, dividend-growing equity portfolios, Cardinal has grown its institutional assets under management by an average of 34% per year since 2005.

As your investment manager, Cardinal will consistently apply sound, conservative management and investing principles, and work with you toward achieving long-term success.

We provide professional portfolio management and investment counsel services for the following types of institutions:
  • Pension plans
  • Insurance companies
  • Foundations and endowments
  • Corporate resources
Cardinal provides investment counsel in the following asset classes:
  • Canadian equity
  • U.S. equity
  • Canadian fixed income
Our equity investment philosophy and process:
  • Fundamental security analysis – bottom-up stock picking
  • Dividend-paying – stocks must pay a dividend with an expectation that the dividend will increase
  • Large capitalization value focus – greater than $2 billion and P/E less than the benchmark
  • Focused portfolios – generally 20 to 25 stocks in an equity class
  • Benchmark sectors – we are not compelled to invest in all the benchmark sectors
  • Segregated securities – direct ownership of securities by clients; no pooled funds
  • Low-turnover portfolio – generally 10 to 15% turnover per annum
Fixed-income investment philosophy and process:
  • High quality – investment-grade securities only
  • Risk management – primarily used in balanced mandates to reduce risk
  • Segregated securities – direct ownership of securities by clients; no pooled funds
We offer competitive institutional investment counsel fees, easy access to our personnel, and a track record of success using a consistent and disciplined investment approach that has been fine-tuned over two decades.
