RBC Global Equity

The RBC Global Equity strategy seeks to provide long term capital appreciation by investing in equity securities of companies located throughout the world, including both developed and emerging markets. The strategy invests in companies which we believe have winning business models, expanding market share, growing end markets and strong management teams; what we collectively call strong ‘Competitive Dynamics’. We believe that the superior sales, profits and cash flows that result from strong Competitive Dynamics drive attractive share price performance and economic value creation. The strategy uses a disciplined risk management process to actively manage and diversify risk exposures (such as currency, market or geography) which permits long-term returns to be predominately driven by bottom-up fundamental stock-picking or stock specific risk.

Strategy Overview:

  • Long-term ownership mind-set with integrated ESG
  • Focus on companies with sustainable Competitive Dynamics
  • Efficient usage of risk
  • Low correlation to peer group delivers a different flavour of alpha
