Quarterly Commentary - Q2 2016


The market for U.S. large-cap stocks remained volatile in the second quarter.

The Fund underperformed its benchmarks during the period, largely due to several consumer stocks where concerns arose regarding how they would perform in a difficult economic environment.

We see significant potential in the market for large-cap growth stocks – a category that includes high-quality companies in growth areas such as cloud computing, software as a service, pharmaceuticals, and financial technology & analytics.
