Quarterly Commentary - Q4 2015


Economic data during the fourth quarter suggested that the U.S. economy continued to grow at a stable rate despite global headwinds.

We underperformed our benchmark during the period.

We like the potential for U.S. large-cap equities, where a number of companies are exposed to some of the most exciting secular growth trends.
