Emerging Markets/Global Fixed Income Funds

Our emerging market and global fixed income funds are managed by BlueBay Asset Management Ltd., a leading European asset manager based in London. These new funds offer investors exposure to fixed income products through a number of investment strategies. We focus on the generation of consistently strong risk-adjusted returns, while maintaining our priority goal of capital preservation.

As one of the largest managers of fixed income and alternative products in Europe, BlueBay complements the RBC Global Asset Management family, leveraging the complementary strengths of both firms in investment management and thought leadership.

Our investment approach centers around credit analysis. In order to drive security selection and exploit market inefficiencies, we use strong credit expertise and proprietary research. We have a well-developed and rigorous investment process that draws on top-down and bottom-up contributions. Consistent adherence to style and process across market conditions is ensured through a tried and tested, team-driven approach. In all our strategies, we seek to maximize alpha within a disciplined and risk-controlled environment.

Alpha measures the difference between an actual return for a stock or a portfolio and its equilibrium expected return.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investments in lower-rated and non-rated securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. Investments in foreign securities involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater for emerging markets. Derivatives such as futures, forwards, and swaps involve risks different from, and in certain cases, greater than the risks presented by more traditional investments.  Non-diversified funds may be more volatile than diversified funds that hold a greater number of securities. Absolute return funds may not achieve their goals and are not intended to outperform stocks and bonds during strong market rallies and may underperform during periods of strong positive market performance. The Total Return Credit Fund and Emerging Market Unconstrained Fixed Income Fund are new with no operating history and there can be no assurances that the fund will grow or maintain an economically viable size.
