A “Weighted Average” measures a characteristic by the market capitalization of each stock. Price/Book Ratio is the weighted average of the price/book ratios of all the stocks in a portfolio. The P/B ratio of a company is calculated by dividing the market price of its stock by the company’s per-share book value. The Price/Earnings Ratio is the weighted average of the price/earnings ratios of the stocks in a portfolio. The FY2 P/E ratio is a forward P/E ratio using a next-twenty four months EPS estimate in the denominator.

Approach

Causeway Global Value Fund is constructed from an equity universe spanning primarily developed markets, including the United States. Emerging markets investments may also be included. Eligible companies have market capitalizations generally greater than $1 billion. The investment process is comprised of three stages: quantitative screening and initial analysis, fundamental research, and portfolio construction.

Our global investment philosophy is value-driven with a fundamentally based, bottom-up approach to stock selection. We believe that companies derive their value from the contribution of yield and profitable re-investment of earnings back into the company.

Our philosophy on risk management is simple. We believe risk is best measured by the volatility of a portfolio's returns, not its dispersion from a benchmark. In our view, investors are rewarded over the long term by a reduction in volatility. Our goal is to construct a portfolio that provides consistent long-term, risk-adjusted returns.

Causeway Global Value Fund is a fully invested, 35-55 stock portfolio, typically with a value bias. Sector and regional weights are by-products of our bottom-up approach to stock selection.

Commentary

PERFORMANCE REVIEW for the month ended 31 Jan 2017


Despite a politically tumultuous start to the year, global equities appreciated during January and economic data indicate improving global economies. The top performing markets in our investable universe included New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, and China. The worst performing markets in the MSCI World Index (“Index”) included Italy, Finland, Portugal, Belgium, and Ireland. Traditionally cyclical sectors generally outperformed defensive sectors. The best performing sectors in the Index were materials, information technology, and consumer discretionary. The worst performing sectors were energy, telecommunication services, and utilities. Currency proved favorable as major currencies advanced against the US dollar.

Causeway Global Value Fund ("Fund") underperformed the Index this month, due primarily to stock selection. Fund holdings in the semiconductors & semi equipment, retailing, banks, software & services, and utilities industry groups detracted from relative performance. Holdings in the technology hardware & equipment, automobiles & components, transportation, telecommunication services, and capital goods industry groups offset some of the relative underperformance. The largest detractor was digital wireless communications equipment manufacturer, QUALCOMM, Inc. (United States). Additional detractors included specialty retail jeweler, Signet Group (United States), global financial services giant, Citigroup, Inc. (United States), pharmaceutical company, AstraZeneca Plc (United Kingdom), and multinational electric utility company, ENGIE SA (France). The top contributor to performance was electronic equipment manufacturer, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (South Korea). Other notable contributors included automobile manufacturer, Volkswagen AG (Germany), power & automation technology company, ABB Ltd. (Switzerland), paints & coatings producer, Akzo Nobel NV (Netherlands), and mobile telecommunications operator, China Mobile Ltd. (Hong Kong).
