Quarterly Commentary - Q2 2015


Quarterly returns in health care outpaced those of the broader market, fueled by accelerating innovation as well as industry consolidation.

The Fund outperformed its benchmark for the quarter, led by biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and health care facilities stocks.

Health care equipment and health care supplies detracted from performance.

We believe valuations remain reasonable overall given the sector’s strong fundamentals, though we see some pockets of over-exuberance in the market.
