Dear Fellow Shareholder,

Dear Fellow Shareholder,
The Polaris Global Value Fund (“the Fund”) gained 18.66% in the second quarter of 2020, while the MSCI World Index returned 19.36%. Although underperforming the benchmark, the Fund had admirable results considering the underweight exposure relative to a strong U.S. market. The portfolio’s heavily weighted non-U.S. equities in the U.K., Germany, Sweden, Italy, Canada, Finland, and France outperformed country benchmarks. At the sector level, consumer discretionary, materials and industrials topped results, while utilities and consumer staples lagged.
Portfolio performance was buoyed by a slate of new stocks, purchased in the past four months.
U.S. stocks were in the red on Thursday amid another 1.48 million Americans filing for unemployment benefits. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.21% to 25,394, the S&P 500 index lost 0.23% to trade at 3,043 and the Nasdaq Composite Index was down 0.06% to 9,903.
