International Opportunities Equity
Maximizing opportunistic flexibility with an eye on minimizing the downside
Our International Opportunities Equity strategy invests in companies domiciled in developed (ex-U.S.) and emerging markets around the world, aiming to provide superior long-term risk adjusted returns with lower absolute volatility than the broad equity market (e.g. MSCI AC World ex-U.S. Index).
