Overview

The GMO International Opportunistic Value Fund seeks to generate total return by investing primarily in international equities. The Fund’s benchmark is the MSCI World ex-U.S.A. Index.

The Fund aims to profit from our Asset Allocation team’s current insight that developed, non-U.S. “deep value” (cheapest 20%) stocks are unusually cheap relative to their own history. This actively managed Fund concentrates exposure in the deep value segment by focusing on the international stocks that GMO’s Systematic Equity team identifies as the most undervalued, using proprietary valuation models because we believe that relying on reported financials and index definitions of value may lead investors to misjudge the opportunity.

Risks

Risks associated with investing in the Fund may include: (1) Market Risk - Equities: The market price of an equity may decline due to factors affecting the issuer or its industry or the economy and equity markets generally. Declines in stock market prices generally are likely to reduce the net asset value of the Fund's shares. (2) Non-U.S. Investment Risk: The market prices of many non-U.S. securities (particularly of companies tied economically to emerging countries) fluctuate more than those of U.S. securities. Many non-U.S. markets (particularly emerging markets) are less stable, smaller, less liquid, and less regulated than U.S. markets, and the cost of trading in those markets often is higher than it is in U.S. markets. (3) Management and Operational Risk: The risk that GMO's investment techniques will fail to produce desired results. (4) Currency Risk: Fluctuations in exchange rates can adversely affect the market value of the Fund's foreign currency holdings and investments denominated in foreign currencies. For a more complete discussion of these risks and others, please consult the Fund's prospectus.
