Straight Talk

Quarterly Commentary - Q4 2015


Quarterly returns for the health care sector were positive and outperformed broader global markets.

The Fund underperformed its primary benchmark, due largely to our holdings in the pharmaceutical subsector.

We believe innovation and increased merger and acquisition activity are creating a favorable backdrop for the sector, though political rhetoric around drug pricing will be a source of volatility in 2016.
