Quarterly Commentary - Q2 2016


Small-cap stocks rose during the period, despite late-quarter volatility attributable to the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.

Stock selection was a key driver of outperformance, with merger and acquisition activity within health care being a contributing factor.

As evidenced by the sell-off in the wake of the Brexit vote, we believe investors have not adequately discounted the risks hanging over equities markets.
