Quarterly Commentary - Q3 2016

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Global technology shares delivered strong gains over the quarter.

The Fund outperformed its benchmark, driven largely by our selection of semiconductor and systems software stocks.

The transition to the cloud and consolidation, namely among semiconductors, are two themes that we expect to provide continued support to the sector.
