Global Equity Funds

What is a Global Equity Fund?

Our global equity funds invest in the stocks of companies from around the world, giving you access to a wide range of investment opportunities.

Canada’s stock market represents only 3-4% of the total global equity market and is much more concentrated in a few major economic sectors, such as Energy and Financials, than other markets. Stocks in global markets, including those of developed and emerging markets, represent a wider investment opportunity for Canadians.
