Access to managers

and access to strategies

not available elsewhere.


We search the world for investment managers and strategies that aim to deliver robust risk-adjusted performance. The people and approaches we discover may not be well known in Canada, but we think they provide something remarkable – access to what’s next. Our job is to cut through all the noise of short term performance and extra risk-taking to discern real talent. Our clients appreciate being first to see compelling new approaches, even though some are complex or are limited in capacity. For more than a decade, the Next Edge management team has provided rare access to unique strategies before they became widely known.
