Touchstone International Small Cap Fund


The Fund seeks capital appreciation by investing primarily in equity securities of non-U.S. small-cap companies including those located in emerging market countries.

Investment Style

  • Seeks to add value through bottom-up stock selection and in-depth fundamental research
  • Examines a company's financial condition, management team, business prospects, competitive position and overall business strategy
  • Looks for small-cap companies believed to have strong management, superior earnings growth prospects and attractive relative valuations
A Word About Risk
The Fund invests in equities which are subject to market volatility and loss. The Fund invests in foreign and emerging market securities, and ADRs which carry the associated risks of economic and political instability, market liquidity, currency volatility and differences in accounting standards. The Fund invests in stocks of small-cap companies, which may be subject to more erratic market movements than stocks of larger, more established companies. The Fund invests in preferred stocks which are relegated below bonds for payment should the issuer be liquidated and can be called or redeemed prior to maturity, negatively impacting the stock's price when interest rates decline. The Fund may experience higher portfolio turnover which may lead to increased fund expenses, lower investment returns, and higher short-term capital gains taxable to shareholders. 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.
