Quarterly Commentary - Q2 2016

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

U.S. stocks traded narrowly for much of the second quarter before being jolted late in June by the UK’s surprise decision to leave the European Union.

The Portfolio outperformed its primary benchmark.

Markets are still faced with a slow-growing global economy and geopolitical pressures, which we believe underscores the importance of finding select companies with truly sustainable competitive advantages that can take market share and continue to grow earnings, even without the backdrop of a strong global economy.
