ABOUT THIS FUND
This long-only, international developed-markets equity fund seeks smaller drawdowns and a smoother ride over time by balancing downside mitigation with upside participation for any market environment. The Fund employs a systematic “dynamic beta” investment approach designed to adjust to changing risk environments, seeking up to 45% less volatility than the MSCI EAFE® Index.
WHY INVEST IN THIS FUND
Dynamic Beta Positioning
As risk in the market increases, the portfolio shifts to take a more defensive posture, targeting a lower beta than the index. When risk levels decrease, the portfolio migrates to a more market-like stance, targeting a higher beta, allowing for the full potential to benefit from the upward trend in the market.
