Fund Focus

SouthernSun Asset Management seeks to achieve the Fund’s investment objective by investing primarily in common stocks of smaller-capitalization U.S. companies that SouthernSun selects using a research-driven, value-oriented investment strategy. The Fund defines small-cap securities to include securities of issuers with a market capitalization at the time of purchase within the capitalization range of companies in the Russell 2000® Index during the most recent 12 month period (based on month-end data). This capitalization range will change over time. Under normal market conditions, the Fund invests at least 80% of its assets (defined as net assets plus any borrowing for investment purposes) measured at the time of purchase in small-cap securities. The Fund’s portfolio typically invests in 20-40 companies SouthernSun believes are niche dominant, attractively valued with financial flexibility and uniquely fitted management teams. When selecting companies for investment, SouthernSun seeks opportunities that it believes have the following characteristics:

  • Financial Strength: SouthernSun prefers companies that have strong internally generated discretionary cash flow and organic revenue growth
  • Management Capability: SouthernSun prefers management teams with measurable, transparent goals that are held accountable for performance. This applies to all levels of management from the CEO and CFO to the plant/facilities manager
  • Niche Dominance: SouthernSun prefers companies that it believes exhibit competitive advantages through superior products, process controls and technologies

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund’s monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.

Morningstar Rating is for the share class indicated only (see ticker); other share classes may have different performance characteristics. The Ranking may reflect the waiver of all or a portion of the fund's fees. Without such waiver, the Rankings may have been lower. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
