Quarterly Commentary - Q3 2016


U.S. stocks reached record highs during the period but were volatile toward the end of the quarter.

The Fund underperformed its primary benchmark during the period.

We believe the market environment remains conducive to higher-quality growth stocks delivering higher relative performance.
