A Redefined Approach to Value Investing

 

See below for most recent performance.

We redefine “value portfolio” in this strategy by using a systematic, but flexible approach. This allows us to actively find areas of the market that are offering superior dividends and valuations, factors that have historically driven favorable risk-adjusted returns and a meaningful level of downside risk management.

Investment Objective

To provide competitive returns consistent with the broad equity market while also providing a level of capital protection during market downturns.

Investment Strategy

The Series is designed to offer a diversified portfolio of dividend-paying U.S. equity securities. Using a systematic process with a focus on mid-to-large capitalization U.S. companies, securities are selected based on free cash flow generation and earnings power, minimum dividend yield, dividend sustainability, and financial health.

May be Appropriate for Investors

  • Seeking a portfolio of high-quality, dividend yielding securities
  • Seeking exposure to companies with meaningful growth potential due to high free cash flow yields and earning power

Performance

There is no data available at this time.

Inception performance is based on the Disciplined Value Series Class I inception of 11/07/2008. For periods through 03/01/2019 (the inception date of the Class W shares), performance for the Class W shares is based on the historical performance of the Class I shares. Because the Class W shares invest in the same portfolio of securities as the Class I shares, performance will be different only to the extent that the Class I shares have a higher expense ratio. Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Performance for periods greater than one year is annualized. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate, so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than that quoted.

The Class W shares are only available to discretionary investment accounts and other accounts managed by the Advisor. These clients pay a management fee to the Advisor that is separate from the fund's expenses.

A Word About Risk

All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal. As with any stock fund, the value of your investment will fluctuate in response to stock market movements. Investing in the Series will also involve a number of other risks, including issuer-specific risk and mid-cap risk. The Series invests primarily in dividend-paying equity securities, with a focus on mid-to-large cap companies. There is no assurance or guarantee that such companies will declare, continue to pay, or increase dividends. Stocks of mid-cap companies tend to be more volatile than those of large-cap companies, as midcap companies tend to be more susceptible to adverse business or economic events than larger, more established companies. In addition, because the Advisor manages the Series using a disciplined screening process, the Series is subject to the additional risk that the investment approach may not be successful. Further, the Advisor does not intend to make frequent changes to the Series’ portfolio in response to market movements.
