TD Asset Management Inc. launches three new pooled funds
TORONTO, Dec. 12 /CNW/ - As part of its commitment to providing institutional investors with a relevant and high quality solution set, TD Asset Management Inc. (TDAM) today announced the launch of three new Pooled Fund Trusts (funds). Each has been developed to facilitate access to markets that are and will likely remain in high demand. Among the line-up of new funds is a fundamentally invested '130/30' Fund, the TD Emerald 130/30 Fundamental Canadian Equity Pooled Fund Trust. This fund builds on TDAM's success managing fundamental long only equity and long/short equity market neutral strategies. "TDAM has demonstrated the skill and success in buying long and selling equities short - keys to the credibility of any fundamental active extension solution," said Robin Lacey, Managing Director, TDAM. "It is exciting to be one of the first investment managers to bring a fundamental Canadian equity solution to this market, one that complements our existing quantitative active extension funds." TDAM has also launched two globally-focused equity funds, the TD Emerald Enhanced International Equity Pooled Fund Trust and TD Emerald Global Dividend Pooled Fund Trust. The TD Emerald Enhanced International Equity Pooled Fund Trust uses TDAM's quantitative analytical techniques to build a value-adding portfolio of equities from the established economies of Europe, Australasia and the Far East, while maintaining risk characteristics in line with the MSCI EAFE Index over the long term. The TD Emerald Global Dividend Pooled Fund Trust is designed to deliver growth and income through a disciplined and research-driven approach by investing primarily in dividend-paying equity securities and other income producing instruments of issuers from around the world. Global exposure provides clients with risk diversification while the concentration on dividends can significantly contribute to total returns over time. About TD Asset Management Inc.
