International Equity Plus Fund

Objective

The International Equity Plus Fund (IEPF) is designed for investors seeking a broadly diversified exposure to non-North American equities (Europe, Australia and the Far East). Effective April 1, 2016, the IEPF is sub-advised by Edinburgh Partners out of Edinburgh, Scotland. Established in 2003, Edinburgh Partners manages over $12 billion in assets for institutional and individual clients.

Investment Style

We utilize a value approach to stock selection, applying bottomup,
fundamental analysis to all investment decisions. Our investment goal is to protect our client’s capital while offering superior investment growth, regardless of economic conditions. We seek to invest in solid companies run by strong management teams that can navigate variable market conditions.

As value investors, we tend to include companies in the portfolio when they are viewed as “out of favour” by the market and have declined in price. Companies can become undervalued when there is a lack of investor awareness, when an entire industry is out of favour with investors, or when a company experiences a short-term difficulty which, following careful analysis, we believe can be overcome. By purchasing these companies after a price decline, we find we are able to control risk in the portfolio as these investments often have less downside while offering a decent potential return.
