The Dreyfus Corporation Key Developments

The Dreyfus Corporation Launches the Dreyfus TOBAM Emerging Markets Fund

The Dreyfus Corporation announced that it has launched the Dreyfus TOBAM Emerging Markets Fund, an actively-managed emerging markets equity mutual fund. TOBAM's patented investment process, which aims to provide an optimal diversification of risk contribution, is designed to enhance an investor's risk/return profile versus traditional capitalization-weighted strategies. Globally recognized for its innovative investment approach, Paris-based TOBAM, the fund's subadviser, seeks to maximize the fund's portfolio diversification in terms of various risk metrics by applying a systematic investment approach. The process tries to identify securities that have the lowest possible correlation to each other for inclusion in the fund's portfolio. The TOBAM patented Anti-Benchmark(R) Maximum Diversification(R) model attempts to construct a portfolio of securities that TOBAM believes offers the most diversification potential and avoids the concentration risk that exists in traditional market capitalization-weighted indices. The fund's portfolio managers focus on stock selection as opposed to making proactive decisions as to country, industry or sector exposure.
