About the Newly Appointed Portfolio Sub-Advisory Firms

Headquartered in Kansas City with offices in New York; Mountain View, California; London and Hong Kong, the firm manages over $139 billion in assets as of December 31, 2013.

Causeway Capital Management: Causeway is an independent investment management firm founded in June 2001. It takes a bottom-up approach to selecting mid- and large-cap global stocks, seeking to identify under-priced securities that are held until the market recognizes their fair value. The firm's portfolio managers and research analysts work together to determine expected returns for undervalued securities. This analysis is then refined using tools developed by their quantitative specialists to manage portfolio risk. As of December 31, 2013, the firm managed approximately $28 billion in assets.

INTECH Investment Management: Founded in 1987, INTECH offers equity investors highly disciplined, mathematical relative-return strategies that attempt to achieve long-term returns in excess of the target benchmark, while reducing the risk of significant underperformance relative to the benchmark. Its strategies are based on a rigorous mathematical theory that is the result of research conducted by founder Dr. E. Robert Fernholz. As of December 31, 2013, INTECH had approximately $47.6 billion under management.

Pzena Investment Management: Headquartered in New York City, Pzena has a deep value investment philosophy which emphasizes an understanding of business models and earnings power.
