Host Mark Therriault speaks with Ben Jang, Portfolio Manager at Nicola Wealth focused on debt instruments. In today’s conversation, they discuss preferred shares, which has been a hot topic over the last several months because of changes in the marketplace.
Ben gives a breakdown of this asset class and explains how the changes in the marketplace in the last several years have impacted it. He also touches on the new issue that RBC recently came out with that could potentially replace preferred shares as a whole, explaining the key differences between this new issue vs. rate resets (the predominant player in the current preferred shares market).
Ben Jang is a Portfolio Manager at Nicola Wealth. He joined Nicola Wealth in September 2012 with extensive experience working for several multi-billion dollar investment management firms focusing on global equity, GTAA and market neutral funds. Most recently, he was on the institutional portfolio management team of a Vancouver-based firm and was responsible for quantitative strategies and optimization of portfolios.
