Dynamic Funds is bringing on a portfolio manager with a background in pensions to bolster its global investing expertise.

Eric Benner has been hired as vice-president and portfolio manager at the fund company, which is owned by Bank of Nova Scotia.

Mr. Benner was most recently a managing director and co-head of equities in the capital markets business of the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System. In that role he led a team of 13 that managed several global equity portfolios and helped oversee $3-billion.

Before OMERS, Mr. Benner worked at large institutional managers Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan.

Dynamic Funds chief executive officer Jordy Chilcott said in a statement that Mr. Benner's global expertise would benefit the firm. He will join Dynamic's equity income team, led by Oscar Belaiche. Mr. Belaiche has been with Dynamic Funds for nearly 20 years and oversees more than $14-billion in assets.

"His addition is an important part of Dynamic's ability to deliver a variety of active global strategies that continue to be in demand by advisers and their clients," Mr. Chilcott said.
