A Redefined Approach to Value Investing

We re-define “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, which has historically driven favorable risk-adjusted returns and meaningful downside risk management.

 

The video above was originally published in March 2019. Down market capture discussed represents the percent of market return captured by the investment manager’s return relative to the benchmark during negative periods. See below for the most recent performance.

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

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 Z shares), performance for the Class Z shares is based on the historical performance of the Class I shares. Because the Class Z 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.

Expense Ratio

Gross 0.45%*

*Reflects the Advisor’s contractual agreement to limit its fees and reimburse certain expenses, where applicable. The contractual waiver may not be amended or terminated without the prior approval of the Fund’s Board of Directors. Class Z shares do not make payments to financial intermediaries.

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.

A Redefined Approach to Value Investing

We re-define “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, which has historically driven favorable risk-adjusted returns and meaningful downside risk management.

 

The video above was originally published in March 2019. Down market capture discussed represents the percent of market return captured by the investment manager’s return relative to the benchmark during negative periods. See below for the most recent performance.

(11/07/2008)

12.43%

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 Z shares), performance for the Class Z shares is based on the historical performance of the Class I shares. Because the Class Z 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.

Expense Ratio

*Reflects the Advisor’s contractual agreement to limit its fees and reimburse certain expenses, where applicable. The contractual waiver may not be amended or terminated without the prior approval of the Fund’s Board of Directors. Class Z shares do not make payments to financial intermediaries.

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.
