Portfolio Positioningas of 06/30/2019

  • The portfolio is overweight in the financials sector where we favor insurance companies globally. We believe Asia-based insurance companies have strength in their brands, their technology, as well as their growth prospects. In Europe, the insurance firms are well capitalized, are returning capital to shareholders, and still have levers to pull on efficiency.
  • The portfolio continues to maintain an underweight allocation in European banks relative to the benchmark given the current competitive environment and potential liquidity issues. The portfolio is overweight in emerging market banks as we believe the accommodative monetary policies across the globe serve as a tailwind for these firms.
  • The portfolio is overweight in the metals and mining industry as we favor companies who are beneficiaries of iron ore supply constraints in Brazil. Demand also continues to be robust, which further contributes to the attractive supply-demand dynamics of the space.
  • We increased the portfolio’s allocation to the industrials sector where we favor firms that have been disproportionately punished because of the trade war between the U.S. and China and are well positioned to benefit in the long run.
  • Key identifiable risks include the potential for a generalized global economic slowdown, a significant deceleration of the Chinese economy, potential geopolitical risks in the Middle East, and a disruption in global supply chains as a result of the lack of a Sino-U.S. trade agreement and the potential of a hard Brexit.

Class R2 - The performance quotations for Class R2 reflect the following methods of calculation: (a) for periods prior to the inception date for Class R2, a restated figure is used based on the Fund's Class A performance, excluding the effect of Class A's maximum sales charge (which does not apply to Class R2) adjusted to reflect the Rule 12b-1 rate differential between Class A and Class R2, which has a higher 12b-1 fee than Class A; and (b) for periods after the inception date for Class R2, actual Class R2 performance is used reflecting all charges and fees applicable to Class R2 shares. Hypothetical performance data for Class R2, as measured from since inception of the Fund using the methodology described above, is not available if the Class A inception date is equal or greater than ten years old. Please refer to the Class R2 performance information for the inception date for Class R2. Please refer to the Class A performance information for the inception date for Class A.

Class R2 shares are only offered to certain eligible investors. For additional information, see the Fund’s current prospectus.
