Touchstone Capital Growth Fund Sub-Advised by: Ashfield Capital Partners, LLC

Objective

The Fund seeks long-term capital growth by primarily investing in equity securities of large capitalization companies.

Investment Style

chart
  • Utilizes an integrated systematic investment process that combines quantitative and fundamental analysis with a top-down thematic overlay
  • Top-down thematic overlay seeks to identify sectors where positive change is occurring
  • Quantitative process screens potential stocks considering size, liquidity, growth characteristics and valuation
  • Fundamental analysis is performed on the remaining eligible stocks
  • Throughout this process, an effort is made to identify sectors of the economy that are believed to exhibit above-average long-term growth potential
The Fund invests in equities which are subject to market volatility and loss. The Fund invests in stocks of large-cap companies which may be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges. The Fund invests in growth stocks which may be more volatile than investing in other stocks and may underperform when value investing is in favor. The Fund invests in ADRs which carry the associated risks of investing directly in foreign securities. The Fund may focus its investments in the securities of certain sectors that may be more susceptible to economic, business or political developments which may affect other securities in the areas of focus thereby increasing risk. The Fund invests in preferred stocks which are relegated below bonds for payment should the issuer be liquidated. The fixed dividend may be less attractive in a rising interest rate market. The Fund is non-diversified, which means that it may invest a greater percentage of its assets in the securities of a limited number of issuers and may be subject to greater risks. Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risk. The advisor engages the sub-advisor to manage the Fund's portfolio; the sub-advisor's judgment may impact the Fund's performance.
