RBC Global Asset Management Brings Convertible Bond Expertise of BlueBay Asset Management to Canadian Investors

RBC Global Asset Management Brings Convertible Bond Expertise of BlueBay Asset 
Management to Canadian Investors 
TORONTO, Nov. 26, 2012 /CNW/ - RBC Global Asset Management Inc. announced 
today the launch of BlueBay Global Convertible Bond Fund, sub-advised by 
BlueBay Asset Management LLP, a specialist fixed income and alternative asset 
manager. The fund is available to individual and institutional investors 
across Canada. 
"We have recently seen a lot of risk aversion in the market due to ongoing 
volatility. As a result, we are pleased to offer additional choice to 
investors seeking to combine the security of bonds with the upside potential 
of equities," said Doug Coulter, president of RBC Global Asset Management Inc. 
"Managed by Michael Reed, senior portfolio manager, and Alessandro Esposito, 
portfolio manager, the new fund draws on the depth of BlueBay's fixed income 
expertise. The fund provides another way for Canadians to access the global 
convertible bond markets and diversify their portfolios." 
The BlueBay Global Convertible Bond Fund invests primarily in global 
convertible bonds, which tend to have low correlations to other bonds in a 
rising rate environment and offers less volatility than equities. The fund is 
appropriate for investors seeking a combination of current income and capital 
growth potential and who want exposure to a portfolio of global convertible 
bonds to diversify the fixed-income portion of their overall portfolio. 
Investors should have a long-term investment horizon and should be able to 
tolerate a medium level of investment risk. 
The new fund is available to individual investors through six low-fee options: 
Series A; Advisor Series; Series H; Series F and Series I (available via 
financial advisors); and Series D (available via direct-to-client platforms, 
PH&N Investment Services and RBC Direct Investing). 
The management fee for each fund series is outlined in the table below.
