Quarterly Commentary - Q3 2015


Uncertainty about global economic growth and U.S. interest rates sparked volatility this quarter.

We outperformed our primary benchmark during the period. Stock selection in the technology sector was a large driver of relative outperformance.

We expect a lower aggregate return environment going forward, but think our investment style is well suited for the current market backdrop.
