Fund Description

Strategy Statement
Portfolio Managers
Stephen H. Dover
"The fund is designed to reflect our investment philosophy that successful global investing can benefit from combining a global investment perspective with local insight and presence."

Strategy, Benefits, Results


  • We are long-term investors seeking to buy companies globally across all markets (developed, emerging and frontier) and market capitalizations with favorable growth potential and sustainable competitive advantages.
  • We have a global investment perspective with a local market focus and presence.
  • We select investments and determine regional and country allocations through portfolio managers, with overall investment responsibility, working closely with regional based sub-advisors.


  • Local Market Expertise. Regionally based sub-advisors provide bottom-up perspectives on market conditions and robustness of growth opportunities in their regions.
  • Unconstrained Investment Approach. We take a diversified, opportunistic approach to stock selection that is unconstrained by geographical or market capitalization.
  • Global Diversification. Global investment opportunities often differ from those available domestically.
