Portfolio Positioningas of 12/31/2014

  • The Alpha Strategy Fund underperformed its benchmark, the 85% Russell 2000® Index/15% S&P Developed Ex-U.S. SmallCap® Index, during the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • During the three-month period, both the Fund’s strategic allocation and the performance of underlying investment strategies detracted from relative performance.  The Fund’s allocation to value equities detracted from relative performance, as small cap value and micro-cap value stocks underperformed the Fund’s benchmark.  The Fund’s weighting in micro-cap growth stocks contributed to performance, as they outperformed their underlying benchmark and the Fund’s benchmark. 
  • The Fund’s international small cap equity strategy outperformed its underlying benchmark, thereby contributing to relative performance.
  • The Fund’s mid cap value strategy contributed to relative performance, as it outperformed its underlying benchmark and the Fund’s benchmark.
