This is an actively managed fund with a global investment mandate. The fund's strategy is to find low-priced, high-quality companies that are undervalued, underresearched and unpopular. To reduce risk, the fund seeks to maintain a reasonable geographic and sectoral balance. Active management entails that the portfolio managers invest in companies on the basis of their own analyses. With common sense and long-term planning, the portfolio managers try to avoid investing in popular companies and industries at a price that is too high relative to those companies fundamental value and earnings.
