RBC GAM has launched a QUBE Low Volatility Canadian Equity Fund and QUBE Low Volatility U.S. Equity Fund.

They’re now available for purchase by individual and institutional investors in Canada.

“In an increasingly complex investment environment, we are pleased to offer a simple way for investors to reduce risk in their equity portfolios,” said Bill Tilford, Head of Quantitative Investments at RBC Global Asset Management. “These new funds use quantitative investing to offer investors the upside potential of equities with less risk and volatility than broad market indexes.” The funds are designed for investors with long-term investment horizons and medium risk tolerance, as well as for those seeking a defensive core equity investment.

They’re available through four low-fee options: Series A; Advisor Series and Series F—available via financial advisors; and Series D.
