Quarterly Commentary - Q1 2016


U.S. large-cap growth equities notched minimal gains but stocks were volatile during the quarter.

The Fund underperformed its benchmarks during the period, due largely to some of our health care holdings.

We believe the months ahead will be a great time to invest in U.S. large-cap growth stocks — a category that includes companies that are gaining market share in growing areas like cloud computing, software as a service, pharmaceuticals and consumer goods.
