Quarterly Commentary - Q1 2016

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Global stocks were volatile early in the quarter, but largely rebounded as energy markets strengthened and central banks extended accommodative monetary policy.

The Fund underperformed its benchmark, with health care and energy weighing most on relative returns.

While aware of risks, such as negative interest rates weighing on financials, we see signs of optimism emanating from the consumer and energy possibly finding a bottom.
