The Global Natural Resources Equity Composite seeks long-term capital appreciation primarily through investment in natural resource companies with potential for earnings growth greater than the rate of inflation.
- Focus on well-managed companies that own or develop natural resources and other basic commodities with attractive long-term supply-demand fundamentals.
- Invest in companies that operate “downstream” from these resources, e.g., refining, paper manufacturing, steel fabrication, and petrochemicals.
- The portfolio invests in resource companies on a global basis including international energy, forest products, mining, and commodities.
- Assessment of resource/commodity cycle, industry valuation, and company fundamentals is key.
- Broadly diversify holdings to manage portfolio risk profile relative to highly concentrated energy or gold strategies.
- Typically 90-120 securities
- Positions typically less than 5%
- Fully invested; reserves typically less than 5%

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.
Gross performance returns are presented before management and all other fees, where applicable, but after trading expenses. Net of fees performance reflects the deduction of the highest applicable management fee that would be charged based on the fee schedule contained within this material, without the benefit of breakpoints. Gross and net performance returns reflect the reinvestment of dividends and are net of all non-reclaimable withholding taxes on dividends, interest income, and capital gains.
Effective April 1, 2017, the benchmark for the composite was changed to the MSCI World Select Natural Resources Index. Prior to April 1, 2017, the benchmark was the Lipper Global Natural Resources Funds Index. Prior to June 1, 2008, the benchmark was the Lipper Natural Resources Funds Index. The benchmark changes were made because the firm viewed the new benchmarks to be a better representation of the investment strategy of the composite. Historical benchmark representations have not been restated.
