Fund manager, Grant Samuel Funds Management, has announced that it officially rebranded to GSFM on 25 March, following the acquisition by Canadian wealth management firm CI Financial Corp.
The Canada-based firm acquired an 80 per cent stake previously held in the business by corporate advisory firm Grant Samuel and a number of executives.
GSFM’s chief executive, Damien McIntyre, said that the new name would reflect the firm’s heritage, with Grant Samuel, and its future as a part of CI Financial Corp, which is a publicly-listed company.
“A new brand – including name, visual identity and theme – reflects our ability to access the best solutions for our clients from around the world,” he said.
“Our long-term strategic plan is based on developing enduring partnerships with clients and partners, both locally and internationally, to offer investments not readily available in the Australian market.
