Quarterly Commentary - Q1 2016


After early-quarter volatility, the technology sector ultimately outperformed broader equities.

The Fund underperformed its benchmark for the period, largely on account of its exposure to software.

We viewed the quarter’s volatility as an opportunity to increase exposure to higher growth names focused on cloud and SaaS technologies.
