GuideStone International Equity Fund

GIEZX

Summary

The fund seeks capital appreciation in the long term and income by investing in companies outside the United States.

The fund manages assets with the help of six sub-advisers. The fund prefers a multi-manager investing approach with the aim of reducing volatility and downside risk.

The sub-advisers are AQR Capital Management, LLC, Harris Associates L.P., MFS Institutional Advisors, Inc., Mondrian Investment Partners Ltd., Parametric Portfolio Associates LLC, and WCM Investment Management, LLC.

The sub-advisers’ investment process starts with a list of companies in the benchmark index and the research team utilizes quantitative techniques and fundamental analysis to identify investment opportunities.

According to the investment team, an issuer is considered to be from the country where it is located, where it is headquartered or incorporated, where the majority of its assets are located or where it generates the majority of its operating income.

Next, the research team invests in securities of foreign companies located in developed countries and in emerging markets.

Then the manager constructs a portfolio of stocks from a list of companies favored by the research team and allocates capital based on its conviction level.

The portfolio is diversified among a large number of companies across different industries and economic sectors.

Also, the Fund may invest in American Depositary Receipts and Global Depositary Receipts.

Furthermore, the fund may invest its uninvested cash in high-quality, short-term debt securities, or in the GuideStone Funds Money Market Fund.

However, the fund may not invest in any company that is publicly recognized, as determined by GuideStone Financial Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention as being in the alcohol, tobacco, gambling, pornography or abortion industries.

The fund also avoids investing in any company whose products, services or activities are publicly recognized as being incompatible with the moral and ethical posture of GuideStone Financial Resources.
