Summary

The fund seeks to track the total return performance of the benchmark index before fees and expenses by investing in mid-and large-size companies outside the United States.

The sub-adviser’s investment process starts with a list of companies in the underlying benchmark index and the research team utilizes quantitative techniques and fundamental analysis to identify investment opportunities.

Next, the research team focuses on international securities that in the aggregate have lower relative volatility.

Then the research team relies on a representative sampling indexing strategy to evaluate companies based on market capitalization and industry weightings.
