ClariVest Asset Management, LLC is the subadviser to the Carillon ClariVest International Stock Fund and an affiliate of Carillon Tower Advisers, Inc. the Investment Adviser.
The fund seeks capital appreciation by investing in companies that the portfolio management team believes have the potential for attractive long-term growth in earnings, cash flow and total worth of the company. In addition, the portfolio management team prefers to purchase stocks that appear to be undervalued in relation to the company’s long-term growth fundamentals.
The manager’s philosophy centers on two core beliefs about investing. First, all things (e.g., companies, industries, sectors and economies) cycle. Second, most people forget or inefficiently react to this first thing. The manager focuses on identifying companies that surprise the market by their participation in an earnings growth cycle. The team seeks to earn excess return as corresponding investor cynicism about this participation declines from elevated levels.
Initial investments are focused on companies that have recently entered or are extending an earnings cycle. They tend to have an improving foundation of earnings, cash flow, sales, etc., and are typically surrounded by some level of cynicism or investor neglect.
The selection process is built on the idea that good investing discipline starts with an explicit identification of what one is looking for combined with the willingness and ability to look broadly for it. The manager believes quantitative tools are particularly good at addressing both these requirements. They force the investor to clearly identify the type of investment opportunity he or she seeks while allowing the investor to objectively look across a broad universe for those opportunities.
Starting the process with quantitative tools provides confidence that opportunities fit within the team’s philosophy but the manager believes that the subjective nature of investing requires the steady hand of an experienced professional. The manager’s long-tenured investment professionals use their judgment and expertise to confirm potential investment ideas uncovered by the process. The final decision is theirs to make.
International investing presents specific risks, such as currency fluctuations, differences in financial accounting standards, and potential political and economic instability. These risks are further accentuated in emerging market countries, where risks can also include possible economic dependency on revenues from particular commodities or on international aid or development assistance, currency transfer restrictions, and liquidity risks related to lower trading volumes.
Growth companies are expected to increase their earnings at a certain rate. When these expectations are not met, investors may punish the stocks excessively, even if earnings showed an absolute increase. Growth company stocks also typically lack the dividend yield that can cushion stock prices in market downturns. The companies engaged in the technology industry are subject to fierce competition and their products and services may be subject to rapid obsolescence. The values of these companies tend to fluctuate sharply.
Groups of stocks, such as value and growth, go in and out of favor, which may cause certain funds to underperform other equity funds.
Investments in the securities of other investment companies, including money market funds and exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) (which may, in turn invest in equities, bonds, and other financial vehicles), may involve duplication of advisory fees and certain other expenses.
Quantitative risk involves the dependence on proprietary quantitative tools for security selection which may not be predictive of a security’s value.
