Russia is a tough market to love and an easier market to hate, says Tim Steinle, portfolio manager of the Emerging Europe Fund (EUROX). Still, there are plenty of reasons for investors to look closer at the country, as there are opportunities that don’t exist elsewhere in the world. In this segment of Canadian Business News Network’s “Top One: Emerging Markets” show, Tim talks about a few of these opportunities.

Please consider carefully a fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. For this and other important information, obtain a fund prospectus by visiting or by calling 1-800-US-FUNDS (1-800-873-8637). Read it carefully before investing. Distributed by U.S. Global Brokerage, Inc.

Foreign and emerging market investing involves special risks such as currency fluctuation and less public disclosure, as well as economic and political risk. By investing in a specific geographic region, a regional fund’s returns and share price may be more volatile than those of a less concentrated portfolio. The Emerging Europe Fund invests more than 25% of its investments in companies principally engaged in the oil & gas or banking industries.  The risk of concentrating investments in this group of industries will make the fund more susceptible to risk in these industries than funds which do not concentrate their investments in an industry and may make the fund’s performance more volatile.

Past performance does not guarantee future results.
