About Risk 

Fund share values are sensitive to stock market volatility. Investments in foreign instruments or currencies can involve greater risk and volatility than U.S. investments because of adverse market, economic, political, regulatory, geopolitical or other conditions. In emerging countries, these risks may be more significant. Smaller companies are generally subject to greater price fluctuations, limited liquidity, higher transaction costs and higher investment risk than larger, established companies. Market conditions may limit the ability to generate tax losses or to generate dividend income taxed at favorable tax rates. The Fund's ability to utilize various tax-managed techniques may be curtailed or eliminated in the future by tax legislation or regulation. No Fund is a complete investment program and you may lose money investing in a Fund. The Fund may engage in other investment practices that may involve additional risks and you should review the Fund prospectus for a complete description.

The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.

© 2014 Morningstar, Inc. All Rights Reserved. The information contained herein: (1) is proprietary to Morningstar and/or its content providers; (2) may not be copied or distributed; and (3) is not warranted to be accurate, complete or timely. Neither Morningstar nor its content providers is responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on how a fund ranks on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure against other funds in the same category. This measure takes into account variations in a fund's monthly performance after adjusting for sales loads (except for load-waived A shares) redemption fees, and the risk-free rate, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. Load-waived A share star ratings do not include any front-end sales load and are intended for those investors who have access to such purchase terms (e.g., plan participants of a defined contribution plan). Not all A share mutual funds for which Morningstar calculates a load-waived A share star rating may actually waive their front-end sales load. Therefore, Morningstar strongly encourages investors to contact their investment professional to determine whether they are eligible to purchase the A share without paying the front load. The Morningstar Rating may differ among share classes of a mutual fund as a result of different sales loads and/or expense structure.

Insights & Analysis

Quarterly Commentary

A Word On The Markets  as of Sep 30, 2014

Emerging-market equities fell in the third quarter of 2014, with the MSCI Emerging Markets Index2 down 3.50% for the three-month period.

Many factors contributed to this fall in the benchmark, but a primary reason was the broad decline in the equity markets of some of the largest emerging-market economies. In Brazil, diminishing hopes of sweeping political change in the upcoming election were accompanied by a broad sell-off. Taiwanese stocks fell on continued signs of slowing economic growth and lower trade figures. Korea also saw significant declines over the quarter, primarily as a result of investors’ worries about Samsung’s profitability, amid growing competition from U.S. and Chinese competitors. Finally, the threat of further economic sanctions against Russia, and its involvement in the shooting down of a commercial airliner, prompted a substantial fall in both its equity markets and its currency.

In general, frontier-market countries continued to strongly outperform emerging-market countries during the quarter. The top-performing frontier-market country was Bangladesh, up over 26% for the three-month period.

Performance Summary 

Parametric Tax-Managed Emerging Markets Fund (the Fund) outperformed its benchmark, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index (the Index),2 for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, returning -2.15% for Institutional Class shares at net asset value versus the Index’s -3.50% return.

  • The Fund’s emphasis on diversification10 via a system of target country weights and systematic rebalancing back to these target weights drove most of the outperformance relative to the Index. The diversification targets consistently have the Fund underweight large countries and overweight smaller countries.
  • During the quarter, many countries with larger Index representation (e.g., Korea, Russia and Brazil) underperformed the Index, while many with smaller Index representation outperformed. Combined, these two sources of relative return accounted for a material part of the Fund’s outperformance. In addition, frontier countries included in the Fund, but not in the Index, further contributed to relative performance.
  • The continued volatility of country returns during the quarter played positively to the Fund’s rebalancing process in that the Fund systematically bought into price weakness and sold into strength.

Contributors 

Factors contributing to the Fund’s relative performance compared to the Index during the quarter:

  • An overweight in Egypt contributed, as Egyptian equities rallied in response to signs of an economic rebound and continued political stability.
  • An underweight in Korea lifted relative performance, after Korean equities sold off due to investors’ concerns around increasing competition from Chinese manufacturers.
  • An underweight in Brazil aided relative performance, as markets fell on signs that the incumbent government would beat back a challenge from more reform-minded challengers.
  • An overweight in the United Arab Emirates aided relative performance, as the market rose on the strength of the real estate and financial sectors.

Detractors 

Factors detracting from the Fund’s relative performance compared to the Index during the quarter:

  • An underweight in China detracted, as the Chinese market rose over the quarter. This rise was mainly a result of a rally early in the quarter, with the market falling in August and September amid political turmoil in Hong Kong, and conflicting signals as to the direction of China’s economic growth.
  • An overweight in Russia also detracted from relative performance as continued political tensions and the threat of further economic sanctions weighed heavily on Russian equity prices.
  • An overweight in Greece further detracted from the Fund’s relative performance.

Investment Outlook And Fund Positioning 

Commentators have expressed a wide range of opinions regarding the emerging-market asset class. Regardless of the near term forecast, many observers believe that persistent demographic and economic trends give emerging-market economies a long-term advantage. While emerging-market equities may continue to demonstrate heightened volatility, they may do so against a backdrop of generally rising prices.

How does one invest in this space with so much short-term uncertainty? We believe that managing risk by broadly diversifying, avoiding concentrations and portfolio rebalancing are all key aspects that help address thoughtful investment decisions. Parametric’s emerging market investment strategy relies on a rules based approach, in combination with a systematic rebalancing discipline, to reduce concentrations, while emphasizing broad diversification in seeking its objective of long-term after-tax returns.

Additional Notes 

Source: Factset.

Attribution analysis shows the contribution of indicated factor exposures to a portfolio's relative total return versus a designated benchmark. Results are based on each day's ending holdings, and linked to generate attribution over longer periods. Portfolio returns do not reflect applicable expenses and trading costs, or variations in transaction prices from end of day values.

Allocation Effect 

Measures portfolio's excess return due to over or under-weighting a sector.

Selection Effect 

Measures portfolio's excess return from selecting individual stocks within each sector.

Portfolio profile subject to change due to active management. Percentages may not total 100% due to rounding.

About Risk 

Fund share values are sensitive to stock market volatility. Investments in foreign instruments or currencies can involve greater risk and volatility than U.S. investments because of adverse market, economic, political, regulatory, geopolitical or other conditions. In emerging countries, these risks may be more significant. Smaller companies are generally subject to greater price fluctuations, limited liquidity, higher transaction costs and higher investment risk than larger, established companies. Market conditions may limit the ability to generate tax losses or to generate dividend income taxed at favorable tax rates. The Fund's ability to utilize various tax-managed techniques may be curtailed or eliminated in the future by tax legislation or regulation. No Fund is a complete investment program and you may lose money investing in a Fund. The Fund may engage in other investment practices that may involve additional risks and you should review the Fund prospectus for a complete description.
