3-Star Overall Morningstar RatingTM:  (as of 2/28/17)

Morningstar Category: Foreign Large Blend Allocation



FUND DESCRIPTION

New Century International is dedicated to a philosophy... diversification can reduce risk without sacrificing performance. The Portfolio's objective is to provide capital growth and, as a secondary objective, to earn income. New Century maintains rigorous investment qualifications for the mutual funds in which it invests: strong performance, reasonable risk-adjusted returns and consistent management styles. International investments may involve additional risks, such as currency rate fluctuation, different financial and accounting standards, and political instability that may cause greater volatility and expose the Portfolio to other risks generally not associated investments. Diversification does not assure or guarantee better performance and cannot eliminate the risk of investment loss.


FUND HIGHLIGHTS

  • Diversification through a blend of value and growth investments allocated among large-cap, mid-cap, small-cap positions allocated geographically among mature and emerging markets.

  • Access to ETFs

  • Disciplined category ranges reduce risk

  • Investments are not limited to a single fund family or institution

  • Active management consistently monitors fund objectives and performance

  • Simplified year-end tax reporting on a single tax statement


PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT STRATEGIES

The New Century International Portfolio seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in shares of registered investment companies that emphasize investments in equities such as common stocks, preferred stocks or securities convertible into stocks, but with a focus on securities in foreign and emerging markets, and with less emphasis on securities in domestic markets.
