What makes this pool unique?

Not your typical global fund.

The VPI Global Equity pool has a higher global weighting than it’s benchmark. The pool is underweight the U.S. for two reasons:

  • First, client portfolios typically have large weightings in the U.S. and the portfolio manager doesn't want to duplicate that.
  • Second, the portfolio manager sees opportunity outside the U.S.. Europe and Asia are currently priced more attractively than the U.S. and the portfolio manager believes this gap in valuation will lead to better long-term results for the pool which has a larger international weighting.

Benchmark is the MSCI World Index Total Return CAD.
