Fund Overview

Philosophy and Process

The Fund purchases companies that the portfolio manager believe are priced significantly below their intrinsic worth as well as those that demonstrate sustainable competitive advantage and high returns on invested capital. The portfolio management team partners with shareholder-oriented company management that has demonstrated a track record of strong capital allocation.

The management process identifies investment opportunities from the broad equity universe using fundamental analysis, valuation and risk management to select 30 to 50 holdings within the fund. The strategy is oriented toward long-term investing but the manager will sell a holding that has become less attractive or underperforms expectations or has excessive leverage.

Investment Considerations

The Fund may invest in undervalued securities which may not appreciate in value as anticipated or remain undervalued for longer than anticipated. Investments made in small to mid-capitalization companies are subject to greater risks than large company stocks due to limited resources and inventory as well as more sensitive to adverse conditions. The Fund may invest in foreign securities which may be more volatile and less liquid due to currency fluctuation, political instability, social and economic risks.

Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.
