Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risk. The value of portfolio securities selected by the investment team may rise or fall in response to company, market, economic, political, regulatory or other news, at times greater than the market or benchmark index. A portfolio’s environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) considerations may limit the investment opportunities available and, as a result, the portfolio may forgo certain investment opportunities and underperform portfolios that do not consider ESG factors. International investments involve special risks, including currency fluctuation, lower liquidity, different accounting methods and economic and political systems, and higher transaction costs. These risks typically are greater in emerging and less developed markets, including frontier markets. Such risks include new and rapidly changing political and economic structures, which may cause instability; underdeveloped securities markets; and higher likelihood of high levels of inflation, deflation or currency devaluations. Securities of small- and medium-sized companies tend to have a shorter history of operations, be more volatile and less liquid and may have underperformed securities of large companies during some periods. Value securities may underperform other asset types during a given period. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.

Free cash flow is a measure of financial performance calculated as operating cash flow minus capital expenditures. ​Price-to-Earnings (P/E) is a valuation ratio of a company's current share price compared to its per-share earnings. Return on Capital (ROC) is a measure of how effectively a company uses the money (borrowed or owned) invested in its operations. Earnings multiple is a method used to compare a company’s current share price to its earnings per share. Discount to intrinsic value is a measure of an investment's value based on its cash flows, growth potential, and risk, with the value of an asset being the present value of the expected cash flows on that asset, discounted back at a rate that reflects the riskiness of these cash flows. Margin of safety, a concept developed by Benjamin Graham, is the difference between the market price and the estimated intrinsic value of a business. A large margin of safety may help guard against permanent capital loss and improve the probability of capital appreciation. Margin of safety does not prevent market loss—all investments contain risk and may lose value.
