TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - March 03, 2014) - Scotia Private Pools™ today announced a portfolio advisor change to Scotia Private U.S. Mid Cap Value Pool (the "Pool"). 1832 Asset Management L.P. (the "Manager") is the manager of the Pool.

On May 1, 2014, Hahn Capital Management, LLC ("Hahn") is scheduled to become portfolio advisor for Scotia Private U.S. Mid Cap Value Pool, replacing the current portfolio advisor. Founded in 1988, Hahn is a privately owned firm based in San Francisco, California and manages approximately US$ 1.1 billion in assets as at December 31, 2013 spread across a diversified client base that includes high net worth individuals and families, public and corporate pension plans, separately and unified managed account platforms. It is a value-oriented money management firm that specializes in mid-cap equities. The founder, Elaine Hahn, has managed the mid-cap strategy since its inception in 1988 under the belief that risk management is key for generating strong long-term investment returns. By endeavoring to identify and quantify risks early on and following a fundamental bottom-up research process Hahn aims to remove emotion from portfolio management.

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 identifying and evaluating best in class investment managers for Scotia Private Pools. Hahn's strong track record and proven team of investment professionals join an already strong lineup of portfolio advisors to the Scotia Private Pools.
