Note About 2022 Capital Gains & Operational Tool to Benefit Shareholders 

We believe our long-term investment focus is the best way to make money for our clients. While our Funds have long-term records of tax efficiency and rank among the most tax efficient mutual funds, according to Morningstar, our capital gain amounts have been elevated the last couple years.

So, why are they elevated? It’s in the DNA of how we invest: concentrated and fully invested portfolios with low turnover designed for the long term. That has resulted in consistently good returns from underlying securities whose valuations have grown through the years. However, when it comes time to trim those holdings, whose valuation has successfully grown over time, it produces capital gains.

What are we doing about it? First, we plan to stick to our DNA, and will not change either our investment philosophy or our strategy. Rather, we will be utilizing an operational efficiency tool. This approach reduces cash drag on the portfolio, which means Fund managers can keep assets even more fully invested and spend more time focusing on strategic investment decisions. It also has the possibility of reducing trading costs and decreasing capital gain distributions over time.
