Quarterly Commentary - Q4 2014


Global technology shares finished the quarter higher, driven in part by appetite for stocks in technology hardware and semiconductor companies.

The Fund outperformed its benchmark, with the applications software and IT consulting subsectors providing the most relative performance.

Our lack of exposure to data processing and outsourced services along with Internet retail detracted most from relative performance.

We believe the transition to cloud-based services should continue to accelerate in 2015, while management teams are also expected to continue the recent trends of returning capital to shareholders and pursuing attractive acquisition opportunities.
