    Mawer Emerging Market Fund MAW160

    I am trying to invest in this fund through a TD direct account. I am not able to access in this fund...but all the other Mawer funds are available through them. Anyone encountering this?

    Actually this is a very reasonable MER for an emerging market fund. Investors should do very well with this fund as Mawer follows a very strict investing discipline . I invested in their Global Small Cap fund as soon as it was available and have done very well with it.

    I have a self directed account through TD and have not been able to buy this fund. I called up TD and the representative said it was not available...which seems odd since all the other Mawer funds are available. Anyone else encountering this with TD?

    As I have not invested in any International , asian or Emerging markets since I dumped a Financial Advisor who had us in those funds, which never made money, I may not be one to comment. But I'd say stick to Cdn & US. At least one knows what one is buying.

    Is it just me or is there no ETF that tracks the Global Small Cap's benchmark index?

    Looks like ZEM tracks MAW160's benchmark index (MSCI Emerging Markets Index).

    caltran..I would bet that MAW160..even with its MER of 1.6..will outperform ZEM by several percentage points. Don't believe me? Then just monitor the fund for the next 5 years and watch MAWER's investing strategy at work.

    It wouldn't surprise me at all. Only developed very large markets are efficient. Everything else is a crapshoot.

    Unless somebody wants to say that the TSXV is efficient.
