Excel Funds Launches BRIC Fund

The {{wpd|Potential superpowers}} or {{wpd|BRI...Image via Wikipedia

On Nov. 3, 2009 Excel Funds, a Mississauga Ontario-based fund company that focuses on investment opportunities in emerging markets launched a new fund named Excel BRIC Fund. The new fund is made up from four existing Excel funds: Excel Latin America, Excel China, Excel India and Excel Emerging Europe.

The four Excel Funds are sub-advised by: Baring Asset Management (Asia) Ltd. in Hong Kong, China managing the Excel China Fund; Birla Sun Life AMC Ltd. in Mumbai, India managing the Excel India Fund; Banco Itau – Unibanco in Sao Paulo, Brazil managing the Excel Latin America Fund; and Baring International Investment Ltd in London, England managing the Excel Emerging Europe Fund.

This combining of four existing funds with proven track records provides investors the opportunity to purchase one fund instead of four.

"The BRIC nations represent more than 40% of the world's population and are among the fastest growing economies," says company President and CEO, Bhim D. Asdhir. "Yet, on the whole, Canadian investors have less than 1% of their investment portfolios invested in these economies. These markets are too big to ignore, as the combined GDP of the BRIC nations now exceed the GDP of the United States of America."

The management fee is scheduled to be 2.5% which is the same as each of the four current funds.

The fund may be purchased with a $500 minimum investment and has both-front end and deferred sales charge options. Speak to your financial advisor if you are interested in making an investment in this fund.
