On 18th March 2011, Avenue Invest Berhad, a member of the ECM Libra Group, launched the Avenue Canada Australia Resources Economies (CARE) Fund.
CARE fund seeks to achieve capital growth over a medium to long-term period by investing primarily in securities of companies in Australia and Canada. The fund may also invest in equities and equity-related securities, fixed income securities, structured products and money market instruments.
Why Australia and Canada?
Due to their resource-based economies, the manager views Australia and Canada as two of the best-positioned countries in the developed world to benefit from the rapid growth of emerging economies such as China. Both economies have emerged largely unscathed from 2008's global financial crisis and are now buoyed by the resurgence of their resource-based industries.
How to achieve the fund's objective?
Generally, the fund will invest at least 70% of its NAV in Australian and Canadian markets and the balance of 30% in other markets within the MSCI AC World Index which are deemed beneficiaries of resource-driven demand from emerging markets.

The Fund may invest in companies across a broad range of industries and/or sectors including but not limited to banking and financial, materials and resources, consumer, health care, energy, industrial, real estate, telecommunications, utilities and infrastructure.
