Quarterly Commentary - Q3 2015


Technology stocks, along with broader equity markets, sold off during the quarter.

The Fund underperformed its primary benchmark, the S&P 500 Index, but outperformed its secondary benchmark, the MSCI All Country World Information Technology Index, during the quarter.

The shift in enterprise IT spending to the cloud from onpremises data centers, the rising importance of IT services and the increase in the number of components going into cars and other consumer products as they become “smarter”remain important themes for the Fund.
