I asked this question on the M* discussion board as well, but I'm also interested to hear what the members on this board have to say!!!
Hi all, I am looking for a LC international value/blend fund with little or no EM and reasonable volatility and down-side protection. I've read some good things on this fund and it seems to a very good MF and fits my criteria.
The hedging is a little concern of mine, but after reading the Q4 commentary, the mgmnt team seems to be willing to adjust when necessary. So I feel a little better about that. Any thoughts on this item, in particular?
It will be in a taxable account and it will be a long-term investment.
I've owned FMIHX for several years and FMI is a nice shop, but as has been pointed out FMIJX is their first endeavor into the foriegn arena, with GREAT 3-year results!
Is the success a result of recent good times or stock picking prowess or something else?? I know that this might not be a fair or reasonable question but i'm asking it anyway.
Any thoughts, ideas or opinions a very welcome!!!!
