Scotia Private Pools Announces Portfolio Advisor Change

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 16, 2016) - Scotia Private Pools® today announced a portfolio advisor change to Scotia Private U.S. Value Pool (the "Pool"). 1832 Asset Management L.P. (the "Manager") is the manager of the Pool. There will be no change to the investment objective of the Pool as a result of the portfolio advisor change.

On July 5, 2016, Coho Partners, Ltd. ("Coho") is scheduled to become portfolio advisor for Scotia Private U.S. Value Pool, replacing the current portfolio advisor. Founded in 1999, Coho is an independent, employee-owned investment firm headquartered in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, and advises approximately $4.1 billion in assets on behalf of institutions, endowments, foundations, and high-net-worth clients. Coho's investment philosophy is that the most effective way to create and sustain wealth is by investing in high quality, stable and defensive companies whose dividends and earnings tend to grow regardless of the economic environment. They utilize a bottom-up investment approach, with a primary investment objective of protecting principal in a declining market.

The Manager uses a manager selection process that leverages the global research capabilities of investment management consultant, NT Global Advisors, Inc., a Northern Trust Corporation affiliate, in aiming to identify and evaluate best in class investment managers for Scotia Private Pools. Coho joins an already strong line-up of portfolio advisors to the Scotia Private Pools.
