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 Mar 31, 2016

Emerging-market equities rallied over the first quarter of 2016, with the MSCI Emerging Markets Index2 up 5.71% for the three-month period. This upward movement was broad-based, with all but a handful of emerging-market countries rising over the quarter.

The overall gain in the Index was driven by increases in a number of larger countries, including Brazil and Taiwan. Brazil benefited from growing investor consensus that the market was oversold, as well as a rebound in commodity prices, which helped this commodity-based economy. Taiwan's market rallied, partially due to the activities of Taiwan's National Financial Stabilization Fund, which was activated in early 2016 to support local equities amid global volatility. Other notable performers included South Africa, Colombia and Turkey. In addition, many investors viewed the decision by the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) to delay its planned interest-rate hikes as another reason for the rally, as low interest rates are broadly bullish for emerging-market stocks.

In general, frontier-market countries strongly underperformed emerging-market countries during the quarter. The MSCI Frontier Markets Index10 was down -0.94%. This drop was partially a result of the Index's concentration in crude oil exporters, including Nigeria, Kuwait and Kazakhstan.

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 March 31, 2016, returning 7.69% for Institutional Class shares at net asset value versus the Index's 5.71% return.

  • The Fund's emphasis on diversification11 via a system of target country weights and systematic rebalancing back to these target weights drove the majority of the outperformance relative to the Index. The diversification targets consistently have the Fund underweight large countries and overweight smaller countries.
  • Furthermore, the Fund's emphasis on diversification at the sector level within each country, as well as the addition of non-Index positions, was a mild detractor from relative performance.
  • Finally, frontier-market countries included in the Fund, but not in the Index, detracted from relative performance, as the Fund held larger positions in those countries that underperformed the Index.

Contributors 

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

  • The Fund's underweight in China contributed to performance versus the Index, as Chinese stocks fell on reduced trade flows, slowing economic growth and worries about further currency devaluations.
  • An overweight in Turkey also lifted performance relative to the Index, as Turkish stocks rebounded strongly on higher-than-expected economic growth, lower inflation and currency gains from the appreciation of the Turkish lira versus the U.S. dollar.
  • The Fund's sector diversification process within Korea further aided performance relative to the Index.

Detractors 

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

  • The Fund's underweight in Taiwan detracted from performance versus the Index, as Taiwan stocks appreciated despite Taiwan's economy recording its third straight quarter of economic contraction due to slumping exports and the continued slowdown in the Chinese economy.
  • The inclusion of non-Index countries with strong economic ties to crude oil also detracted from performance. Crude exporters such as Saudi Arabia and Nigeria are included in the Fund, but are not members of the Index. Both faced severe headwinds from the continuing downward spiral in crude oil prices.
  • The Fund's sector diversification process within Brazil further detracted from performance relative 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 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 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.
