Fossil fuels are critical to feeding, clothing and transporting the world’s population of seven billion people – but demand is increasing just as our supply is increasingly in question. According to the US Energy Information Administration’s International Energy Outlook 2012, explosive development in China, India, Brazil and other emerging countries is predicted to grow energy demand by 91% by 2035. At the same time, the cost of finding and extracting the earth’s dwindling supply of fossil fuels is expected to escalate.
Our Global Energy Fund gives you an opportunity to potentially capitalize on these supply and demand trends, by investing in companies involved in traditional and new techniques for exploration, discovery, production and distribution of energy. Our Global Energy Fund invests in conventional energy resources, such as oil and natural gas, as well as alternative energy.
