About Risk 

Fund performance is sensitive to stock market volatility. Changes in the dividend policies of companies could make it difficult to provide a predictable level of income. 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. Dividend capture strategies may result in higher portfolio turnover, increased trading costs and potential for capital loss or gains. When interest rates rise, the value of preferred stocks and other hybrid securities will generally decline. 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 Sep 30, 2016

Global stock markets moved higher in the third quarter of 2016 amid continued low interest rates and diminishing concern about Britain's vote to leave the European Union.

Recovering from their sharp pullback following Britain's "Brexit" vote in late June 2016, stocks advanced for much of the summer. Major U.S. stock indexes reached multiple record highs during August 2016, as an upturn in oil prices also boosted stocks.

In the final month of the period, U.S. equity markets turned choppy, as investors worried about the likelihood of an interest-rate hike by the U.S. Federal Reserve (the Fed). Declining corporate profits and overall U.S. economic health also weighed on markets. Retail sales dipped in August after a slight gain in July. Home sales also fell in August, while durable goods orders were flat.

The Fed's decision at its September meeting to leave rates unchanged sent stocks higher. U.S stocks also got a brief boost late in the period after OPEC nations reached an initial agreement to cut oil production. Stocks along with oil prices reacted with solid gains.

Globally, low interest rates helped drive most stock markets higher during the three-month period. Signs of strength in China's beleaguered economy, including improved business and consumer confidence, also cheered investors.

The prospect of continued low interest rates helped global equity markets deliver solid gains for the three-month period. The Dow Jones Industrial Average12 recorded a 2.78% gain, while the broader S&P 500 Index13 rose 3.85%. The technology-laden NASDAQ Composite Index14 added 9.69%. Globally, the MSCI EAFE Index 15 gained 6.43% in the quarter. Small-cap stocks outperformed their large-cap counterparts during the quarter. In terms of investing style, growth stocks topped value stocks in both the large-cap and small-cap categories.

Performance Summary 

Eaton Vance Tax-Managed Global Dividend Income Fund (the Fund) underperformed its benchmark, the MSCI World Index (the Index)1, for the quarter ended September 30, returning 3.10% for Class A shares at net asset value versus the Index's 4.87% return.

  • Equity markets continued their climb higher during the quarter, and we saw international markets finish the quarter ahead of the U.S. Europe rebounded nicely from the second quarter, when Brexit fears had caused a sell-off at the end of June. Asian markets were up meaningfully during the quarter, and emerging markets outperformed developed markets as investors continued to seek attractive yields.
  • From a sector standpoint, eight out of the 11 Index sectors had positive performance during the quarter and defensive sectors generally lagged the more dynamic sectors. The best performing sectors for the third quarter of 2016 were information technology, materials and financials. Consumer staples, utilities and telecommunication services were the worst performing, each posting negative returns.
  • Preferred securities, as measured by the BofA Merrill Lynch Fixed Rate Preferred Securities Index16, underperformed the Fund's Index for the quarter, up 1.22%. As of September 30, preferred securities comprised 7.2% of the Fund's total net assets.

Contributors 

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

  • Strong stock selection within industrials was the largest contributor to relative performance during the quarter. Stock selection within the energy sector was also positive. Melrose Industries, a global industrials and manufacturing company, was the largest individual contributor during the quarter. The stock advanced during the quarter on news of an acquisition with Nortek, Inc., a building ventilation manufacturer. Alphabet Inc. and Facebook Inc. were additive to performance, as information technology stocks posted strong returns over the quarter. The Fund's positions in Anadarko Petroleum and Visa were additional contributors during the quarter.
  • Equity sector allocation was generally neutral during the quarter, however, an underweight to consumer staples was additive as was an underweight to telecommunications. Both of these sectors underperformed during the quarter.
  • The Fund's allocation to preferred securities contributed to performance for the three months ended September 30.

Detractors 

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

  • Stock selection was the primary reason for the Fund's underperformance for the quarter, specifically within health care and financials. The Fund's overweight to health care company Novo Nordisk was the largest detractor, as the stock price declined on disappointing second quarter earnings. Tobacco firm Reynolds American also detracted, as recent weakness in the overall industry following a strong run during the first six months of the year impacted the stock. Elsewhere, Royal Dutch Shell, Wells Fargo and Dollar General also dampened relative performance during the quarter.
  • Underweight allocations to materials and information technology detracted from relative performance, as did an overweight to healthcare.

Investment Outlook And Fund Positioning 

All eyes will be on the Fed in coming months, as investors gauge the likelihood of an interest hike. The prolonged low-interest rate environment has raised fears of a stock bubble. Investors will also be keeping very close tabs on the U.S. presidential election.

In the U.S., the continuing slump in corporate profits has added to investor worries along with signs that job market gains may be leveling off. Investors who cheered OPEC's move toward oil production curbs will closely monitor progress toward a final agreement in November.

Globally, observers will focus on China's economic indicators for signs of continued strengthening that would benefit not only China, but also its emerging-market trading partners. Japan will also be on investors' radar, as it assesses the impact of the government's aggressive stimulus measures.
