This informative webcast will air on Thursday, March 25, 2010, at noon Eastern time.
The U.S. Global Investors Global MegaTrends Fund (ticker MEGIX for Institutional Class shares and MEGAX for Investors Class shares) is the company’s infrastructure mutual fund strategy. The fund’s portfolio team will lead the discussion of investment opportunities in the infrastructure sector in Asia and elsewhere around the world, with specific attention paid to opportunities in nuclear power and water.

“There are 6.7 billion people living on the planet today and the population is growing. Growth in emerging markets and the shift of population to urban centers is creating greater demand for resources, services and infrastructure,” says Frank Holmes, CEO and Chief Investment Officer at U.S. Global. “The estimated needs for infrastructure spending are staggering—trillions of dollars across the world to develop water, energy, transportation and telecommunication networks.”
