Why Invest In This Fund

Captures robust sources of excess returns

RAE is a systematic strategy that selects undervalued stocks using valuation metrics designed by Research Affiliates, while also incorporating quality and momentum signals to improve performance. The RAE strategy combines several well-researched measures of each signal to achieve higher returns over time.

Capitalizes on market inefficiencies

Selected stocks are weighted based on fundamental measures of company size such as sales, cash flows, dividends and book value. This weighting methodology allows the fund to capitalize on market inefficiencies by systematically buying low and selling high and benefit from long-term mean reversion in stock prices.

Offers the benefits of investing systematic equity strategy

The fund’s unique rules-based approach seeks a consistent investment process and a contrarian portfolio designed to deliver market outperformance.
