Man­ag­ing al­most $7 bil­lion in as­sets takes more than fore­sight and care­ful anal­y­sis—it also takes guts. Con­nor, Clark & Lunn Pri­vate Cap­i­tal, an in­vest­ment ad­viser to high-net-worth in­di­vid­u­als, foun­da­tions and First Na­tions, isn't faint of heart.

When other money man­agers were tip­toe­ing around the real es­tate and pri­vate in­fra­struc­ture sec­tors fol­low­ing the mar­ket tur­bu­lence of 2007, CC&L Pri­vate Cap­i­tal (a divi­sion of $71-bil­lion, Van­cou­ver-based Con­nor, Clark & Lunn Fi­nan­cial Group) forged ahead. This year it cre­ated a new busi­ness con­sist­ing of in­vest­ments in pri­vate loans to mid­mar­ket Cana­dian com­pa­nies. Al­ter­na­tive as­sets now con­sti­tute up to 30 per cent of client port­fo­lios, which to­tal about 15,000. Man­ag­ing direc­tors Cather­ine Do­razio, Jeff Guise and Corey Maceach­ern are the firm's largest in­di­vid­ual share­hold­ers, so they've aligned clients' in­ter­ests with their own.

“We don't go through mar­ket down­turns skip­ping down the street,” Guise says. “It's just that we come back to the dis­ci­pline and process and ed­u­ca­tion and his­tory to ask, `Where are the op­por­tu­ni­ties that are be­ing cre­ated here?'”
