Investment Opportunities Know No Borders. Focused Global Growth is designed to help investors build capital over time through investments in companies in the U.S. and around the world demonstrating compelling growth potential.
Seeks capital growth.
Global investing opens the door to some of the world’s most successful businesses. Global leaders in many industries are found outside of the U.S., thriving in an integrated world economy. The Focused Global Growth team scours the world, seeking the most attractive investment opportunities with a focus on developed countries.
The managers seek to identify companies in the earliest stages of accelerating fundamental improvement, particularly those whose growth they believe may be sustained by such catalysts as a new product, a technological breakthrough or a business model offering global scale and growth potential. The portfolio is built with attention to the risk being taken compared to the return potential.
International investing involves special risk considerations, including economic and political conditions, inflation rates and currency fluctuations. There is no guarantee that the investment objectives will be met. Dividends and yields represent past performance and there is no guarantee that they will continue to be paid.
Long-term capital growth by investing primarily in large companies in the U.S. and developed countries outside the U.S.
Seeks consistent growth through investments in large companies around the world exhibiting sustainable accelerating earnings growth. May be appropriate as a primary equity holding.
