U.S. Global Investors, Inc. (Nasdaq: GROW), a boutique registered investment advisor that manages natural resources, emerging markets and infrastructure mutual funds, will host a webcast April 29 titled “What’s Ahead in Emerging Europe?” to travel the investment terrain in Russia, Turkey and Central Europe.
This informative webcast will air on Thursday, April 29, 2010, at 11 a.m. Eastern time.
The U.S. Global Investors Eastern European Fund (EUROX) was one of the first U.S. mutual funds to focus on the opportunities created when the former Soviet bloc nations traded stodgy and inefficient central planning for dynamic free-market capitalism. Turkey, which has seen impressive economic growth in recent years, is included in the region due to geographic proximity, burgeoning economy and desire to join the European Union.
Jack Dzierwa and Tim Steinle from the Eastern European Fund (EUROX) portfolio team will be joined on the webcast by Frank Holmes, U.S. Global’s CEO and chief investment officer. The event will be moderated by Dr. Mark Skousen, a well-known economist, author and editor of the “Forecasts and Strategies” newsletter. A question-and-answer session will be included in the webcast.

All opinions expressed and data provided are subject to change without notice. Some of these opinions may not be appropriate to every investor. Foreign and emerging market investing involves special risks such as currency fluctuation and less public disclosure, as well as economic and political risk. By investing in a specific geographic region, a regional fund’s returns and share price may be more volatile than those of a less concentrated portfolio. The Eastern European Fund invests more than 25% of its investments in companies principally engaged in the oil & gas or banking industries. The risk of concentrating investments in this group of industries will make the fund more susceptible to risk in these industries than funds which do not concentrate their investments in an industry and may make the fund’s performance more volatile.
