RBC Global Asset Management Inc. (RBC GAM) announced on Tuesday that, effective mid-August, 2014, responsibilities of the PH&N Overseas Equity Fund will be transferred from Sky Investment Counsel to RBC Global Asset Management (UK) Limited (RBC GAM-UK), in London.

The due diligence review includes a comprehensive analysis of any quantitative and qualitative factors related to this change thereby ensuring that Meritage Portfolios continue to hold funds with above average prospects for long term risk-adjusted returns.
The results of the due diligence review will be communicated over the coming weeks.
