Quarterly Commentary - Q2 2015


Volatility remained low and large-cap growth equities moved slightly higher during the period.

We underperformed our benchmark. Stock selection in the technology sector was a large contributor to relative performance. Stock selection in the health care sector was a relative detractor.

We remain encouraged by some long-term, secular growth trends we see taking shape in some of the largest sectors of the market.
