Overview

The GMO U.S. Opportunistic Value Fund (the “Fund”) seeks to generate total return by investing primarily in U.S. equities. The Fund measures its performance against the S&P Composite 1500 Index. 

GMO’s U.S. Opportunistic Value Fund seeks to profit from our Asset Allocation Team’s top-down insights as to the most attractively valued segment of the U.S. market. Currently, the team finds “deep value” (cheapest 20%) stocks to be truly dislocated in the U.S. This actively managed Fund avoids the “shallow value” stocks, which are expensive relative to their own history, and focuses solely on the deep value names. With this Fund we focus on the U.S. stocks that GMO’s Systematic Equity team identifies as the most undervalued, recognizing that relying on reported financials and index definitions of value can lead investors to misjudge the opportunity.
