Quarterly Commentary - Q4 2015


U.S. equities notched gains in the period, but slow global economic growth and the prospect of rising rates in the U.S. were sources of concern for the market.

The Fund underperformed its benchmark during the period.

We continue to be encouraged about the fundamental improvements and changes taking place at the companies in our Fund.
