Quarterly Commentary - Q4 2015


The Fund’s equity sleeve outperformed its benchmark, driven, in part, by our selection of consumer discretionary stocks and underweight to the energy sector.

Our fixed income sleeve underperformed its benchmark, largely due to our holdings within investment-grade corporate credit.

Our asset allocation mix is overweight equities; we favor stocks whose valuations have not become stretched, and higher-quality fixed income securities.
