Fund Description

The Mutual Quest Fund Class Z (MQIFX) is an actively managed international fund, the objective of which is growth of capital while providing some income. The fund does this by investing in undervalued mid- to large-cap equity securities. The majority of the fund’s portfolio is held in international stocks and it can also invest in special situations and distressed firms in order to help unlock value from them. MQIFX seeks to limit volatility as well and will use screens to help identify the best candidates for value.

Given its focus on foreign stocks, MQIFX makes for an ideal subcore position. The fund is internally managed by Franklin Advisors.
