Greg Eckel at Morgan Meighen & Associates (MMA) manages closed-end equity fund, Canadian General Investments, Limited (CGI), with a steady, level-headed and patient approach to investing with low portfolio turnover.

The manager is unconstrained by benchmark allocations and so far this year, CGI’s performance has benefited from a meaningful above-market weighting in technology companies and a larger below-market allocation to financial stocks.
