About Risk 

Fund performance is 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.

© 2016 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

Commentary

A Word On The Markets as of Jun 30, 2016

Emerging markets equities rose over the second quarter of 2016, with the MSCI Emerging Markets Index2 up 0.66% over the three-month period. This upward movement masked a wide dispersion in country-level returns, with roughly as many countries posting gains as were posting losses for the quarter.

The overall gain in the Index was primarily driven by increases in a handful of larger countries, including Brazil and India. In Brazil, markets experienced a strong rally over the quarter as investors rewarded a resolution to the political turmoil of the past year, and the Brazilian economy showed signs that it was on the mend. India's markets continued their move upwards on reports of unexpectedly high GDP growth and predictions that the current year's monsoon rains will ease the country's severe drought conditions. Notable losers included Poland and Greece. Polish markets fell on Brexit worries and public demonstrations against the newly installed right-wing government, while Greece's struggles with the European authorities continued to negatively impact market returns. Broadly speaking, the asset class benefited from the perception that the U.S. Federal Reserve's plan to raise rates was put on hold following the results of the U.K.'s Brexit vote.

On average, frontier-market countries performed similarly to emerging-market countries during the quarter, with the MSCI Frontier Markets Index10 up 0.47%. Country returns in the frontier markets were wide ranging, with oil exporters such as Kuwait and Nigeria dropping, while countries with improving prospects, such as Pakistan and Argentina, experienced large gains.

Performance Summary 

Parametric Tax-Managed Emerging Markets Fund (the Fund) outperformed its benchmark, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index2 (the Index), for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, returning 1.10% for Institutional Class shares at net asset value versus the Index's 0.66% return.

  • The Fund's emphasis on diversification11 via a system of target country weights and systematic rebalancing back to these target weights detracted from returns relative to the Index. The diversification targets consistently have the Fund underweight large countries and overweight smaller countries.
  • In contrast, the Fund's emphasis on diversification at the sector level within each country, paired with the inclusion of smaller cap names, contributed to relative returns.
  • Finally, frontier countries included in the Fund, but not in the Index, detracted from relative performance, as our portfolio held larger positions to those frontier market countries which underperformed the Index.

Contributors 

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

  • An overweight to Peru contributed to performance versus the Index, as the election of a business-friendly president and increasing industrial metal prices benefited this commodity-exporting country.
  • An underweight to China lifted performance relative to the Index, as Chinese markets stayed flat as investors were torn between encouraging signs of stabilization in the economic data and continued worries of further yuan devaluations and overextended debt markets.
  • Our overweight to Russia, as well as the inclusion of small cap, non-index names in our Russian exposure, further aided performance.

Detractors 

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

  • An overweight to Poland detracted from performance versus the Index, as Polish stocks swooned in reaction to radical measures from its newly elected government, as well as worries about the stability of the EU after the Brexit vote.
  • The overweight to Turkey detracted from performance. Turkish stocks fell over the quarter, amid continued terrorist attacks in Ankara and controversy surrounding its president's consolidation of power, which resulted in the resignation of the prime minister.
  • Our overweight to Mexico detracted from relative performance to the Index.

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 and 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 performance is 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.
