Objective

The Banks folio was developed for investors seeking aggressive growth with significant volatility.

Strategy

The Banks folio consists of the largest companies that are principally engaged in banking. Companies range from small regional banks to large international banking conglomerates.

The exposure of the folio to both domestic and international banking companies could provide added diversification but may also make the folio more volatile than if it only held banks in established economies.
