Why Invest in the Fund

DEFENSIVE APPROACH

Our disciplined valuation process measures downside risk before upside potential and invests in companies with favorable reward/risk ratios. This approach is consistent across the firm since its founding more than 30 years ago.

FLEXIBILITY TO INVEST ANYWHERE

The Fund has the flexibility and confidence to go anywhere outside the U.S. to find the best bargains. We seek high-quality companies in all non-U.S. markets across the market-cap spectrum.

RESULTS WITH EXPECTED LOWER VOLATILITY

Focused on mitigating losses in down market conditions while participating in up markets, the Fund is designed to compound strong returns over a full market cycle with lower volatility than the index.
