"Emerging markets account for 80 percent of the global population and more than 35 percent of the world's market capitalization. At Excel Funds, we believe this is where the best growth opportunities can be found and that the most effective way to access these opportunities is with an on-the-ground portfolio management team – Mr. Sabourin shares this vision, congratulations to him."

The Wealth Professional Awards is Canada's most prestigious wealth management industry event of the year, with over 400 industry experts and professionals in attendance.
