The Excel Funds Emerging Markets Symposium will highlight investment bright spots, against a backdrop of macroeconomic uncertainty, as these industry experts provide authoritative commentary and macro outlooks on:

· Attractive valuations in Latin America and an anticipated commodities recovery

· Global central banking policies and the impact on emerging market debt
"Emerging markets currently account for more than 35 percent of global market cap. As the world evolves, we remain confident that this is where the best growth opportunities can be found. That is why Excel Funds has partnered with leading asset managers located in key markets across the world, to help us achieve our goal of maximizing long-term returns for our investors. We strongly believe that this global perspective, driven by local, on-the-ground expertise is what sets us apart from our competitors," says Bhim D. Asdhir, President and Chief Executive Officer of Excel Funds Management Inc.
The symposium will serve as a platform for bridging the gap between Canadian investors and these focal emerging markets that we believe are positioned for long-term growth.
"In today's environment of heightened global macro uncertainty, we believe it is timely to bring our partners together, who are thought leaders in their respective countries and sectors, to share their insights with Canadian institutional and retail investors," notes Christine Tan, Chief Investment Officer, Excel Investment Counsel Inc. "Symposium guests will also have the opportunity to engage in dialogue and ask questions of our sub-advisers, in what will be an interactive, panel setting."
