Key Tenets of Jackson Square Partners' Philosophy
Concentration
In our view, portfolios should be constructed with a strong emphasis on the highest-conviction companies in a manager’s coverage universe. This is done with a keen focus on both the risk and the reward of each holding. The number of holdings is typically 25-50, although from time to time the fund may hold fewer or more holdings.
Consistent, long-term investment horizon
We generally hold companies with steady, consistent business models and end markets, and prefer to hold them for three to five years or longer.
Intrinsic business value focus
While we, like other growth investors, invest with the expectation of attractive revenue and earnings growth from the companies we hold, a company’s cash economics – its returns on invested capital and its ability to generate free cash flow, i.e., its intrinsic business value – is key to our evaluation.

Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Returns greater than 1 year are Average Annualized.

The adviser has contractually agreed to reduce management fees and reimburse operating expenses until 2/28/22. Investment performance reflects fee waivers in effect. In the absence of such waivers, total return would be reduced.

Since inception returns for the indices are calculated from the Inception date of the share class listed above each.

The returns shown for the Investor Share Class for the period prior its inception are derived from the historical performance of the Institutional Share Class and have been adjusted to reflect the higher total annual operating expenses of the Investor Share Class.

Prior to 12/28/20, the Fund was named Jackson Square All Cap Growth Fund and had different principal investment strategies.

*The MSCI All Country World Index ex USA has replaced the Russell 3000® Growth Index as the Fund's broad-based securities market index because it more closely aligns with the principal investment strategies of the Fund.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible.

With the exception of Global Growth, all funds are non-diversified meaning they may concentrate its assets in fewer individual holdings than a diversified fund. Therefore it is more exposed to individual
stock volatility than a diversified fund. Small- and Mid-capitalization companies tend to have limited liquidity and greater price volatility than large capitalization companies. Investments in foreign securities involve greater volatility and political economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater in emerging and frontier markets. Frontier market countries generally have smaller economies and even less developed capital markets than traditional emerging markets, and, as a result, the risks of investing in emerging market countries are magnified in frontier market countries. Investments in Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) involve additional risks such as declines in the value of real estate and increased susceptibility to adverse economic or regulatory developments. When the Fund buys or sells securities on a foreign stock exchange, the transaction is undertaken in the local currency rather than in U.S. dollars. The value of the foreign currency may increase or decrease against the value of the U.S. dollar, which may impact the value of the Fund’s portfolio holdings and your investment. Other countries may adopt economic policies and/or currency exchange controls that affect their currency valuations in a manner that is disadvantageous to U.S. investors and companies. From time to time, the trading market for a particular security or type of security in which the Funds invest may become less liquid or even illiquid.
