Fund Description

The Fund normally invests at least 80% of its total assets in securities that comprise the Fund’s benchmark index. The Morningstar Global Markets ex-US Moat Focus Index is comprised of securities issued by companies that Morningstar, Inc. (“Morningstar” or the “Index provider”) determines have sustainable competitive advantages based on a proprietary methodology that considers
quantitative and qualitative factors (“wide and narrow moat companies”). Wide moat companies are those that Morningstar believes will maintain its competitive advantage(s) for at least 20 years. Narrow moat companies are those that Morningstar believes will maintain its competitive advantage(s) for at least 10 years. Wide and narrow moat companies are selected from the universe of companies represented in the Morningstar® Global Markets ex-US IndexSM (the “Parent Index”), a broad market index representing 97% of developed ex-US and emerging markets market capitalization. The Morningstar Global Markets ex-US Moat Focus Index targets a select group of equity securities of wide and narrow moat companies, which are those companies that, according to Morningstar’s equity research team, are attractively priced as of each Morningstar ex-US Moat Focus Index review. Morningstar utilizes a momentum screen, in which momentum represents a security’s 12-month price change. A momentum signal is used to exclude 20% of the wide and narrow moat stocks in the Parent Index with the worst 12-month momentum based on a 12-month price change of each stock. Out of the companies in the Parent Index that Morningstar determines are wide or narrow moat companies and display 12-month momentum in the top 80%, Morningstar selects companies to be included in the Morningstar Global Markets ex-US Moat Focus Index as determined by the ratio of the issuer’s common stock price to Morningstar’s estimate of fair value. Morningstar’s fair value estimates are calculated using standardized, proprietary valuation models. Wide and narrow moat companies may include medium-capitalization companies. The Fund’s 80% investment policy is non-fundamental and may be changed without shareholder approval upon 60 days’ prior written notice to shareholders.
As of December 31, 2023, the Morningstar Global Markets ex-US Moat Focus Index included 69 securities of companies with a full market capitalization range of between approximately $1.60 billion and $501.06 billion and a weighted average full market capitalization of $50.61 billion. These amounts are subject to change.
The Fund, using a “passive” or indexing investment approach, attempts to approximate the investment performance of the Morningstar Global Markets ex-US Moat Focus Index by investing in a portfolio of securities that generally replicates the Morningstar Global Markets ex-US Moat Focus Index. Unlike many investment companies that try to “beat” the performance of a benchmark index, the Fund does not try to “beat” the Morningstar Global Markets ex-US Moat Focus Index and does not seek temporary defensive positions that are inconsistent with its investment objective of seeking to replicate the Morningstar Global Markets ex-US Moat Focus Index.
The Fund may become "non-diversified" as defined under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act of 1940”), solely as a result of a change in relative market capitalization or index weighting of one or more constituents of the Morningstar Global Markets ex-US Moat Focus Index. This means that the Fund may invest a greater percentage of its assets in a limited number of issuers than would be the case if the Fund were always managed as a diversified management investment company. The Fund intends to be diversified in approximately the same proportion as the Morningstar Global Markets ex-US Moat Focus Index. Shareholder approval will not be sought when the Fund crosses from diversified to non-diversified status due solely to a change in the relative market capitalization or index weighting of one or more constituents of the Morningstar Global Markets ex-US Moat Focus Index.
The Fund may concentrate its investments in a particular industry or group of industries to the extent that the Morningstar Global Markets ex-US Moat Focus Index concentrates in an industry or group of industries. As of September 30, 2023, each of the financials, information technology, consumer discretionary, communication services, health care and consumer staples sectors represented a significant portion of the Fund.
