There he priced and issued fixed income securities while working alongside the capital markets group. He built the risk management model that guided the $400M BCIIF fund and advised its board on investment decisions and risk management. He left his role, as Project Manager in Corporate & Project Finance, with the Ministry of Finance to join a global macro currency hedge fund.

Why Todd and his team created the
Global Macro Core Fund
The Global Macro Core Fund, started by the MacSween Management Group at Fieldhouse Capital, was developed to fill a void not addressed by traditional mutual funds.
The team felt that traditional mutual funds were too expensive causing drag on long term investment returns. Todd also wanted a way to obtain short exposure allowing his clients to make money not only when markets rise but also when markets fall.
These factors, in addition to the team's deep investment research capabilities gave them the resolve to build a fund that seeks to generate superior risk adjusted returns over the long term for themselves and their clients.
Todd and his team demonstrate strong conviction in their strategies by using the Global Macro Core Fund as their primary investment vehicle for their own long term investing goals.See Our Story
