Fund highlights

    • Focuses on companies with durable asset bases, flexible balance sheets, and sustainable free cash flows. Investing in companies with these characteristics helps insulate the fund from volatility caused by cyclical earnings swings.
    • Appraises companies for both upside and downside potential. The team invests only where the fund stands to be adequately compensated for the level of risk being taken.
    • Builds the portfolio in a manner intended to achieve diversification across sectors and industries to produce consistently strong risk-adjusted returns.
    • Flexible balance sheet approach: The team seeks hidden value by identifying companies with excess balance sheet capacity and calculating their optimal capital structure—recognizing that how a company deploys its capital determines future free cash flows.
    • Expertise in accounting and financial research: Using its accounting background, the team rigorously analyzes financial statements to understand a company's financial condition and stress-tests its assumptions to help optimize risk-adjusted returns.

    Three-month and year-to-date returns are not annualized.

    Figures quoted represent past performance, which is no guarantee of future results, and do not reflect taxes that a shareholder may pay on a fund. 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 lower or higher than the performance data quoted and assumes the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.

    Net asset value (NAV) is the value of one share of the fund excluding any sales charges.

    R6 Class shares are sold without a front-end sales charge or contingent deferred sales charge.

    Does not include sales charges and assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. If sales charges were included, returns would be lower.
