Excel Funds Emerging Markets Symposium 2016: Global Solutions Shaped by Local Market Experts

Find out if emerging markets are the trade of the next decade

TORONTO, March 8, 2016 /CNW/ - Excel Funds Management Inc. ("Excel Funds") is excited to announce that, for the first time in Canada, it will be hosting a panel of highly specialized market experts and portfolio managers from top investment firms around the globe including, China Asset Management Company Limited, Itaú USA Asset Management Inc., Birla Sun Life AMC Limited and Amundi Asset Management, to discuss topical themes and strategies in the emerging markets.

Join us, on April 18, 2016 in Montreal or on April 19, 2016 in Toronto, to learn more about investing across the entire emerging markets spectrum and explore the benefits of active portfolio management strategies with Excel Funds.

The Excel Funds Emerging Markets Symposium will highlight investment bright spots, against a backdrop of macroeconomic uncertainty, as these industry experts provide authoritative commentary and macro outlooks on:

  • China's transition to a consumer-driven economy and the effect on the yuan
  • Attractive valuations in Latin America and an anticipated commodities recovery
  • Sustainable growth and development in India, driven by pro-business reforms
  • Global central banking policies and the impact on emerging market debt

"Emerging markets currently account for more than 35 percent of global market cap. As the world evolves, we remain confident that this is where the best growth opportunities can be found. That is why Excel Funds has partnered with leading asset managers located in key markets across the world, to help us achieve our goal of maximizing long-term returns for our investors. We strongly believe that this global perspective, driven by local, on-the-ground expertise is what sets us apart from our competitors," says Bhim D. Asdhir, President and Chief Executive Officer of Excel Funds Management Inc.

The symposium will serve as a platform for bridging the gap between Canadian investors and these focal emerging markets that we believe are positioned for long-term growth.

"In today's environment of heightened global macro uncertainty, we believe it is timely to bring our partners together, who are thought leaders in their respective countries and sectors, to share their insights with Canadian institutional and retail investors," notes Christine Tan, Chief Investment Officer, Excel Investment Counsel Inc. "Symposium guests will also have the opportunity to engage in dialogue and ask questions of our sub-advisers, in what will be an interactive, panel setting."
