The RBC Emerging Markets Fund is now available to Canadian investors.
The fund is appropriate for investors with a long-term focus, who are seeking global diversification and access to high quality emerging market opportunities.
“We have invested a great deal of resources and due diligence into our emerging markets strategy and we are excited to be offering it to Canadian investors,” says Doug Coulter (pictured), president of RBC Asset Management. “The new RBC Emerging Markets Fund provides investors with a low-fee emerging market investment that is a distinct concentrated portfolio of high-quality companies broadly diversified beyond the typical offerings of Brazil, Russia, India and China.”
The fund is managed by Phil Langham, senior portfolio manager and head of the emerging markets team for RBC AM.
The team takes a disciplined approach to investing in businesses and sectors with solid long-term prospects and exposure to domestic growth, such as financials and consumer-oriented companies.
“Our stock selection process focuses on high-quality companies with characteristics such as higher-than-average profitability and stronger balance sheets,” says Langham. “Based on where we are in the current economic and market cycles, we believe this is a compelling time for investors seeking emerging market exposure.”
