Investment Objectives

To provide a long-term total return, consisting of capital growth and current income. The fund invests primarily in equity securities of companies throughout the world based on Strategy Indexing, an investment portfolio management model developed in 1995 by Jim O’Shaughnessy. Strategy Indexing is a rigorous and disciplined approach to stock selection based on characteristics associated with above average returns over long periods of time.

Investment Strategy

To achieve the fund’s objectives, the portfolio manager: employs a proprietary quantitative approach to security selection based on research and analysis of historical data; screens securities using a factor-based model for attractive value, growth and quality characteristics; screens securities based on financial and governance risk factors; and through ongoing quantitative research, may modify the criteria with the goal of better achieving each strategy’s objective.
