Fund Description

The MFS International Value Fund Class I (MINIX) is a low-cost, actively managed fund that focuses on growing capital. The fund focuses its attention on large and mid-cap international stocks in developed markets that fund management believes are undervalued. MINIX’s managers use fundamental analysis, mainly the price-cash flows and price-sales, price-book and price-earnings metrics when selecting stocks for the portfolio.

Given its low costs and focus on value equities overseas, MINIX makes for a great subcore position in a portfolio. The fund is managed by MFS Investment Management.
