Focus: The Strategy typically invests in international small company stocks.


Rezo Kanovich
Vice President and Portfolio Manager
Managed fund since 1/12


The portfolio manager invests primarily in small companies domiciled outside the U.S. that operate in dynamic industries and appear positioned to grow substantially over the long term. The Fund tends to focus on companies that have above-average industry growth due to a combination of competitive advantages, unique product offerings, defendable market positions, high quality management teams, and the ability to fund their own growth.  The portfolio manager uses a fundamental approach independent of benchmark, country, or sector allocations.

Special Risks: Foreign investments may be volatile and involve additional expenses and special risks, including currency fluctuations, foreign taxes and geopolitical risks. Emerging and developing market investments may be especially volatile. Due to the recent global economic crisis that caused financial difficulties for many European Union countries, Eurozone investments may be subject to volatility and liquidity issues. Investments in securities of growth companies may be volatile. Small and mid-sized company stock is typically more volatile than that of larger, more established businesses, as these stocks tend to be more sensitive to changes in earnings expectations. It may take a substantial period of time to realize a gain on an investment in a small or mid-sized company, if any gain is realized at all. The Fund may invest a significant portion of assets in a particular region, which may increase volatility and exposure to risks associated with that particular region.
