History

Jarislowsky, Fraser Limited is a registered investment counseling firm, managing pension funds, endowment funds and corporate and private portfolios for clients in North America and overseas. The company was founded in 1955 as an investment research firm. In the early 1960s, the firm began to use this research material to counsel private investors and, in 1966, extended its client base to include pension funds.

For more than half a century since its founding, the firm has held a leading position in the field
of investment management. With offices located in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver, the firm manages investment funds on behalf of governments, corporations, universities, labour unions and individuals with assets exceeding $30 billion Canadian dollars.

The firm’s primary objective is the growth of its clients’ capital through conservative, low-risk investment in high-quality securities, selected through stringent fundamental analysis. This approach has produced consistent results through changing economic environments. It believes that investing a portion of the clients’ portfolios outside of Canada is key to achieving its objectives of protecting capital and long-term growth. Non-Canadian markets offer unparalleled opportunities to invest in global companies operating in sectors otherwise unavailable to Canadian investors.

The firm is known for defending shareholder rights and is actively committed to promoting strong corporate governance, as well as exercising influence to ensure that shareholders’ interests are at the forefront of corporate actions.
