- Diversified across a variety of large-cap companies in a variety of industries
- Invests in quality, financially sound, undervalued largecap companies to enhance return potential while managing risk
- Longterm, value-oriented approach employs fundamental, bottomup research
- Portfolio Manager Rod Wright seeks to invest in a broad list of carefully selected, reasonably priced securities with promising growth potential, rather than in securities whose prices reflect a premium resulting from current market popularity
The Fund seeks to provide reasonable income and capital growth by investing in primarily large-cap equity securities. The Fund takes a value-oriented approach to investing across a wide spectrum of companies and industries, while employing a fundamental research-driven process. Up to 25% of the portfolio may be invested in the equity securities of non-U.S. companies.
PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT PERSPECTIVE
"We use a bottom-up approach to identify companies that trade at discounts to intrinsic value with catalysts to close the valuation gap over a reasonable time period."
A WORD ABOUT RISK
Investing in foreign and/or emerging market securities involves risks relating to interest rates, currency exchange rates, economic, and political conditions. At times, the Fund's investments may represent industries or industry sectors that are interrelated or have common risks, making it more susceptible to any economic, political, or regulatory developments or other risks affecting those industries and sectors. These risks may increase share price volatility.
