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.

Based on Risk-Adjusted Returns.

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

Global equities finished a turbulent first quarter of 2016 with mixed returns after bouncing back from sharp losses early in the period.

In the U.S., stocks slid in January 2016, as worries about falling oil prices, declining interest rates and weakening global growth raised fears of a possible recession. Investor concern focused particularly on China's slowing economy and its potential impact on economies worldwide. The adoption of negative interest rates in Japan added to the specter of an impending global recession.

In mid-February, however, U.S. stocks began a strong rebound that overcame the earlier setbacks. Coinciding with the move was a turnaround in crude oil prices, which rose during the second half of the three-month period. The equity market rally got a further boost in March from the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed), when it held interest rates steady and pared back plans for future rate hikes.

The U.S. labor market remained a bright spot throughout the period. Strong job creation data for February helped power the stock market rally into March. After stalling in late March, the rally resumed near quarter-end following Fed President Janet Yellen's comments reiterating her support for slower interest-rate hikes.

For the full three-month period, the Dow Jones Industrial Average12 delivered a total return of 2.20%, while the broader S&P 500 Index,13 rose 1.35%. The technology-laden NASDAQ Composite Index14 fell -2.75%.

Overseas equity markets followed a similarly turbulent pattern during the quarter amid concerns about sluggish growth and China's economic weakness. The MSCI World Index,1 a proxy for global equities, lost -0.35%, while the MSCI EAFE Index15 of developed-market international stocks declined -3.01%. Emerging markets were notable outperformers for the period, with the MSCI Emerging Markets Index16 advancing 5.71%.

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 March 31, 2016, returning -1.70% for Class A shares at net asset value versus the Index's -0.35% return.

  • Global equity markets generally ended the quarter flat, but investors experienced volatility throughout the quarter, with markets bottoming around mid-February, before rebounding back through the end of March.
  • From a sector standpoint, seven out of the 10 Index sectors had positive performance during the quarter, led by utilities and telecommunication services. The energy sector, which experienced a recent period of poor performance, was also one of the best-performing sectors this past quarter. Health care, financials and consumer discretionary each posted negative returns over the quarter.
  • Preferred securities, as measured by the BofA Merrill Lynch Fixed Rate Preferred Securities Index,17 outperformed the Index for the quarter, up 1.60%. As of March 31, 2016, preferred securities comprised 4.25% of the Fund's total net assets.

Contributors 

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

  • Stock selection within industrials and materials were both positive for the quarter. Within industrials, the Fund's position in CH Robinson, a leading third-party supply chain logistics company that reported accelerating revenue growth during the quarter, was a notable contributor.
  • On a relative basis, Dollar General Corporation was the Fund's best-performing stock for the quarter. The stock saw strong performance after posting positive fourth-quarter financial results.
  • From a sector allocation standpoint, the Fund's overweight position in industrials and its underweight position in health care were both additive.

Detractors 

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

  • Stock selection was generally negative for the quarter, led by negative stock selection within financials and healthcare. Within financials, overweight positions in Credit Suisse, Mitsubishi Financial Group and Prudential PLC had sizable impacts on underperformance. The financials sector underperformed in the first quarter amid fears of a global economic slowdown.
  • Teva Pharmaceuticals also detracted from performance this past quarter. The stock was hurt by investor sentiment, which continued to play a large role in the health care space amid political risk leading up to the November election.
  • Although sector allocation generally had no impact on performance this quarter, the Fund's underweight in the materials sector negatively impacted performance.

Investment Outlook And Fund Positioning 

Global economic developments, interest rates and commodity prices are among the factors that will determine how stocks fare in the months ahead.

In deciding when to raise interest rates again, the Fed is likely to consider both the state of the U.S. economy and the broader global picture. Continued employment gains in the U.S., especially if accompanied by other positive economic indicators, could prompt the Fed to raise rates faster than expected. Yet, even with a strengthening U.S. economy, persistent weakness overseas could lead the Fed to stick with its more gradual course.

Investors will be closely watching crude oil prices after their rebound in March 2016. A return to falling oil prices could put pressure on global equities, especially emerging-market stocks. Corporate earnings will also be on many investors' radar amid warnings of a profits squeeze.
