TORONTO, March 2, 2016 /CNW/ - Excel Investment Counsel Inc. is pleased to announce that Christine Tan, Chief Investment Officer, will be among the keynote speakers at the 6th Annual Canadian Foundations and Endowments Forum.

Ms. Tan will be providing an authoritative macro outlook, specifically on global emerging markets, and she will be delivering comprehensive analysis on a wide range of investment topics including:

  • Sustainable growth in leading emerging market nations such as India and China
  • The emergence of new secular trends in the emerging markets
  • Generating high-quality yields through emerging market fixed-income
  • The benefits of active portfolio management
  • Building a diversified portfolio with emerging market investments  

"Excel Funds is honoured to have a representative at the Canadian Foundations and Endowments Forum. While markets have softened since the start of the year, we do not believe in a global environment that is devoid of investment opportunities. We remain confident that strategies which are built on compelling investment themes in the emerging markets are best positioned to help investors maximize their long-term returns. That is the message we want to share," says Bhim D. Asdhir, President and CEO of Excel Funds Management Inc.

Additionally, the 6th Annual Canadian Foundations and Endowments Forum will provide attendees with in-depth analysis from industry thought leaders and meaningful networking opportunities with Canada's most senior foundations and endowments executives.

In today's environment, keeping sight of long-term goals and investment mandates remain a challenge for even the most sophisticated and patient investors. Modern investing is centered around globally diversified solutions, that often venture outside traditional developed markets and capture the strong growth potential of emerging nations. Accordingly, institutional investors have to continually adapt their strategies to successfully navigate an increasingly complex financial landscape.

Attend the 6th Annual Canadian Foundations and Endowments Forum to explore powerful, active management strategies with Excel Funds.
