International Equity and Emerging Markets Equity Funds

International equities play an important role in a well-diversified total portfolio. While home-country bias is prevalent everywhere, it can be particularly glaring in Canada. Canadian equities are a key holding for investors seeking capital growth, however, they largely share the same set of macroeconomic, regulatory and industry exposures. Investors can diversify these risks substantially by including stocks from the EAFE (Europe, Australasia, and the Far East). Find out how.

U.S. High Yield Bond Fund

High yield carries significantly less risk than equities and is not perfectly correlated to either investment-grade bonds or equities. While rising rates are generally a headwind for fixed income, high yield can be expected to outperform investment-grade bonds when interest rates rise since the asset class is less sensitive to interest rates due to its relatively shorter maturity and higher coupons. Our typical recommended exposure to high yield, may contribute positively to overall expected portfolio risk-adjusted returns. Explore this award-winning fund.

Global Managed Volatility Fund

Investors who prefer to be at the lower end of the risk/return, Global Managed Volatility spectrum are more concerned about the risk of losing money than the risk of underperforming some market index. Lower-volatility stocks typically deliver market-like returns over the long-term, considerably less volatility and smaller drawdowns than the market as a whole. As a pioneer in this space, we believe our strategy can, over time, provide about a 25% reduction in volatility compared to broad-market indexes. Read on.

Canadian Fixed Income Fund

Investors may question why they should allocate to investment-grade fixed income. Often, this comes down to the lower long-term return expectations of bonds vs equities. To the extent that inflation and/or interest rates are expected to rise, those expectations will already be factored into bond prices. In fact, investment-grade bonds rarely have a negative year.
