Investment Approach

Investment Approach

Pictet International Fund

Pictet believes growing companies that create value and trade at a discount to their intrinsic value will generate superior long-term investment returns.

The Fund invests primarily in non-U.S. common stocks with an emphasis on companies whose principal activities are located in countries represented by the MSCI EAFE Index. Utilizing a bottom-up fundamental process that focuses on future growth in cash generation and return on capital, the Fund may invest in companies of all sizes, including small and mid cap companies. Considered a GARP (Growth At a Reasonable Price) strategy, the Fund’s weightings reflect where the Fund's investment team has gone to seek the best companies in its universe.
