TORONTO, Oct. 10, 2012 /CNW/ - RBC Global Asset Management Inc. today
announced the expansion of its suite of Target Maturity Corporate Bond
Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). Effective today, the RBC Target 2021 Corporate
Bond Index ETF (TSX: RQI) is available for purchase by individual and
institutional investors on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
"Since the onset of the financial crisis in 2008, it has become more
challenging for investors to manage and source quality corporate bonds across
different maturities," said Mark Neill, head of RBC ETFs. "We are pleased to
be able to help investors address this challenge with the suite of RBC Target
Maturity Corporate Bond ETFs, which now includes the RBC Target 2021 Corporate
Bond Index ETF."
The RBC Target 2021 Corporate Bond Index ETF will maintain a diversified
portfolio of individual Canadian investment grade corporate bonds, with an
effective maturity of November 2021. Similar to the other eight RBC Target
Maturity Corporate Bond ETFs, this ETF is designed to act like an individual
bond while providing the diversification and professional oversight of a
mutual fund, with the transparency and intra-day liquidity of an ETF.
"It has been one year since RBC Global Asset Management entered the ETF market
in Canada. As we continue to add to our product offering in this space, our
focus is on catering to the needs of investors," continued Neill. "We are
proud to continue to deliver investment solutions that enable investors to
construct diverse portfolios."
