RBC GAM launches two new U.S. mutual funds offering diversification across international markets

MINNEAPOLIS, December 14, 2022 – RBC Global Asset Management (“RBC GAM”) today announced the launch of the RBC International Equity Fund and the RBC International Small Cap Equity Fund, two new mutual funds providing U.S. investors with the opportunity to invest in a wide range of equities across emerging markets and developed markets globally.

The RBC International Equity Fund invests primarily in mid-cap and large-cap companies located throughout the world, including both developed and emerging markets, excluding the United States. The fund sources its highest conviction ideas from RBC GAM’s European and Asian Equity investment professionals who seek to uncover strong companies that display high and sustainable levels of profitability. The fund is designed for investors seeking economic, geographic and currency diversification outside of the United States.

The RBC International Small Cap Equity Fund adopts the same investment philosophy and process as its mid/large-cap counterpart, the RBC International Equity Fund, and harvests the in-depth investment insights generated by RBC GAM’s well-resourced investment teams in London and Hong Kong. The fund provides investors with exposure to attractive smaller companies located in emerging and developed markets outside of the United States.

The RBC International Equity Fund and RBC International Small Cap Equity Fund are managed by David Lambert, Head of European Equities at RBC Global Asset Management (UK) Limited, based in London, UK.

“Even with the current macroeconomic challenges, U.S. investors remain committed to diversifying their portfolios globally with international equities,” said Mr. Lambert. “The RBC International Equity Fund and RBC International Small Cap Equity Fund provide investors access to the global investment expertise of both RBC GAM’s European Equity and Asian Equity teams.”

The RBC International Equity Fund and the RBC International Small Cap Equity Fund are available in Class I, Class A, and Class R6 shares. The identifiers for the shares are listed below.
