From time to time, the advisor has waived fees or reimbursed expenses, which may have resulted in higher returns. The listed returns and yields of the Fund are net of expenses, and the returns and yields of the indices exclude expenses. For time periods where the fund inception date preceded the benchmark, the benchmark data will not be shown. Performance Data shown does not reflect the 2.00% redemption fee imposed on the shares held 90 days or less; otherwise, total returns would be reduced.

Investment Approach

Investment Approach

Pictet International Fund

Pictet believes growing companies that create value and trade at a discount to their intrinsic value will generate superior long-term investment returns.

The Fund invests primarily in non-U.S. common stocks with an emphasis on companies whose principal activities are located in countries represented by the MSCI EAFE Index. Utilizing a bottom-up fundamental process that focuses on future growth in cash generation and return on capital, the Fund may invest in companies of all sizes, including small and mid cap companies. Considered a GARP (Growth At a Reasonable Price) strategy, the Fund’s weightings reflect where the Fund's investment team has gone to seek the best companies in its universe.
