Quarterly Commentary - Q1 2015

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The expectation of diverging monetary policy in major regions caused volatile markets early in the quarter and later led to strong gains in European and Japanese stocks.

Driven in part by healthy merger and acquisition activity, our selection of health care and technology drove relative outperformance.

Our industrial and communications holdings detracted from quarterly performance.

We continue to expect a weak euro and a return to stimulative policies in China to be catalysts for equities well into 2015.
