Aston Hill Financial has combined with Front Street Capital 2004 (FSC) and Tuscarora Capital to create a new independent asset management company, called LOGiQ Asset Management.

Founded in 2001, Toronto-based Aston Hill has $2.1bn in total assets under management. The company manages portfolios for institutional investors, provides portfolio advisory services and offers mutual funds.

Front Street, which was also incorporated in 2001, offers a range of investments, including growth, income and tax-minded portfolios offered as mutual funds and hedge funds.

The newly formed LOGiQ Asset Management has appointed Joe Canavan as its CEO. Its board of directors will include Eldon Smith, Nevin Markwart, Catherine Best and Donna Toth along with Canavan.

The common shares of the company are expected to start trading from 14 December 2016 under the new name and ticker symbol ‘LGQ’.

Under the term of deal, Front Street and Tuscarora vendors will receive nearly 134.5 million common shares.
