TORONTO, March 6, 2018 /CNW/ - Continuing its commitment to providing financial professionals access to sophisticated global investment solutions, Forstrong Global's acclaimed portfolio strategies have been added to RBC Dominion Securities A+ platform.
Beginning February 27, both Forstrong's core portfolio solutions and globally focused completion strategies will be available to RBC Dominion Securities advisors and their clients. These strategies have been designed to meet the challenge of exponential change during these increasingly globalized and discontinuous times.
Forstrong's low downside track record is a testament to the benefits of a structured macro thematic investment style that provides wide exposure to developed, emerging and frontier market countries, commodities and currencies. These macro strategies offer investment professionals a ready solution for accessing a diversified range of global exposures, providing an effective complement to traditionally benchmark-centric or domestically-biased portfolios.

This association is well timed to meet the growing needs of Canadian investors who are increasingly becoming more knowledgeable about the growing benefits of actively managed macro thematic portfolios. Our ultimate goal is to deliver clients a differentiated global portfolio that can thrive and withstand the shocks of a globalized, modern world."
With over 130 years combined investment expertise, Forstrong's investment management team is a recognized global macro thought leader. An early visionary in providing institutional-style discretionary global investment management to a wide private client market, Forstrong has the longest track record in the world for managing globally balanced ETF only portfolios.
