Victory Trivalent Emerging Markets Small-Cap Fund

John Evers Header
Investment Approach

The Victory Trivalent Emerging Markets Small-Cap Fund’s management team seeks to provide long-term growth of capital in the Fund by investing primarily in equity securities of smaller emerging markets companies in countries represented in the S&P® Emerging Small Cap Plus Index.

Philosophy & Process

In selecting investments for the Fund, the management team utilizes a combination of quantitative and traditional, qualitative analysis, to identify companies exhibiting improving business momentum and attractive valuations. The stock selection process is designed to produce a diversified portfolio that, relative to the S&P® Emerging Small Cap Plus Index, tends to have a below-average price-to-earnings ratio and above-average earnings growth trend.

The management team’s process is designed to achieve consistent long-term returns across the full breadth of market conditions and economic cycles. The focus of the Fund’s investment process center’s on security selection within a risk-aware framework. The team believes this is the best way to position the Fund to achieve an optimal balance between potential reward and investment risk over a complete market cycle.

Past performance does not guarantee future results. The performance data quoted represents past performance and current returns may be lower or higher. The investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. To obtain performance information current to the most recent month end, please call 1-800-539-FUND or visit www.vcm.com.

Class A Shares MOP performance figures reflect a maximum sales charge of 5.75%.
Class Y Shares are not subject to an initial sales charge when purchased, a contingent deferred sales charge or Rule 12b-1 fees.
Class Y Shares are available only to select investors as described in the Fund’s prospectus. Please read the Prospectus for information on the eligibility requirements to purchase Class Y Shares.

The Adviser has contractually agreed to waive a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse certain expenses through at least October 31, 2018.

Benchmark
S&P® Emerging Plus SmallCap Index: Consists of the bottom 15% (based on market capitalization) of companies from each country represented in the S&P® Emerging BMI plus Korea.  The S&P® Emerging BMI includes companies domiciled in 20 emerging markets countries with float-adjusted market capitalizations of at least US$100 million and annual trading liquidity of at least US$50 million. 

Risk Measures
Alpha is a risk (beta adjusted) measurement of the dif­ference between a fund’s actual returns and what it might be expected to deliver based on its level of risk. Beta measures a fund’s sensitivity to market movements. Sharpe Ratio is calculated by using standard deviation and excess return to determine reward per unit of risk. R-squared is a statistical measurement that determines the proportion of the return on a specific portfolio of securities, that can be explained by variations in the stock market, as measured by a benchmark index. Standard deviation is a statistical measure of volatility indicating the risk associated with a return series. The information ratio is a measure of the consistency of excess return. Source: Zephyr StyleADVISOR.

Characteristics
Weighted harmonic average is the average market capitalization of all companies in a portfolio with each company weighted according to its percent of the portfolio. Market capitalization is the total dollar value of all outstanding shares computed as number of shares times current market price. Avg Price/Earnings Ratio (Last 12 Months & Next 12 Months) Shows the multiple of earnings at which a stock sells. Determined by dividing current stock price by earnings per share for the relevant 12 month period. Earnings per share for the P/E ratio are determined by dividing earnings for the relevant 12 month period by the number of common shares outstanding. Average Price/Book Ratio: Compares a stock’s market value to the value of total assets less total liabilities (book value). Dividend yield is total cash dividends paid as a percent of market capitalization at the end of the period. The yield for the index is the total of all dividends paid over twelve months divided by the total market capitalization. Return on Equity is net income divided by common equity. A measure of how well a company used reinvested earnings to generate additional earnings. EPS is the portion of a company's profit allocated to each outstanding share of common stock. Earnings per share serves as an indicator of a company's profitability. Long-Term Debt/Capitalization is an indicator of financial leverage. Shows long-term debt as a proportion of the capital available. Determined by dividing long-term debt by the sum of long-term debt, preferred stock and common stockholder's equity.

Target metrics reflect our stated goals and are not absolute limits as these are affected by various factors like market fluctuations.
Percentage allocations listed above may not sum to 100% due to rounding methodology.

Investment Considerations

Investors should note that investments in foreign securities involve additional risks due to currency fluctuations, economic and political conditions, and differences in financial reporting standards. There are greater risks involved in investing in emerging market countries than those associated with investment in developed foreign markets. Smaller company stocks are more volatile and less liquid than larger, more established company securities. A substantial portion of the Fund’s assets is invested in securities of Chinese and South Korean issuers; therefore, adverse market conditions impacting that country may have a more pronounced effect on the Fund.
