Related to Brokers and Dealers
Selection of Brokers and Dealers
To the extent permitted by the policy guidelines set forth in the Trust's current Prospectus and SAI, in the selection of brokers and dealers to execute portfolio transactions, the Subadviser is authorized to consider not only the available prices and rates of brokerage commissions, but also other relevant factors, which may include, without limitation: the execution capabilities of the brokers and dealers; the research, custody, and other services provided by the brokers and dealers that the Subadviser believes will enhance its general portfolio management capabilities; the size of the transaction; the difficulty of execution; the operational facilities of these brokers and dealers; the risk to a broker or dealer of positioning a block of securities; and the overall quality of brokerage and research services provided by the brokers and dealers. In connection with the foregoing, the Subadviser is specifically authorized to pay those brokers and dealers who provide brokerage and research services to the Subadviser a higher commission than that charged by other brokers and dealers if the Subadviser determines in good faith that the amount of the commission is reasonable in relation to the value of the services in terms of either the particular transaction or in terms of the Subadviser's overall responsibilities with respect to the Portfolio and to any other client accounts or portfolios that the Subadviser advises. The execution of such transactions shall not be considered to represent an unlawful breach of any duty created by this Agreement or otherwise.
Use of Securities Brokers and Dealers
In placing purchase and sale orders for the Fund with brokers or dealers, the Sub-Advisor will attempt to obtain “best execution” of such orders. “Best execution” shall mean prompt and reliable execution at the most favorable terms of execution, taking into account price, speed and efficiency of execution, other factors that may be deemed relevant by the Sub-Advisor, and the other provisions hereinafter set forth. Whenever the Sub-Advisor places orders, or directs the placement of orders, for the purchase or sale of portfolio securities on behalf of the Fund, in selecting brokers or dealers to execute such orders, the Sub-Advisor is expressly authorized to consider the fact that a broker or dealer has furnished statistical, research or other information or services that enhance the Sub-Advisor’s research and portfolio management capability generally. It is further understood in accordance with Section 28(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, that the Sub-Advisor may negotiate with and assign to a broker a commission that may exceed the commission that another broker would have charged for effecting the transaction if the Sub-Advisor determines in good faith that the amount of commission charged was reasonable in relation to the value of brokerage and/or research services (as defined in Section 28(e)) provided by such broker, viewed in terms either of the Fund’s or the Sub-Advisor’s overall responsibilities to the Sub-Advisor’s discretionary accounts (the “Section 28(e) Actions”); provided, however, that Sub-Advisor’s ability to engage in Section 28(e) Actions shall be subject to review by the Trustees from time to time, and if such Trustees reasonably determine that the Fund does not benefit, directly or indirectly, from such Section 28(e) Actions, the Sub-Advisor shall be prohibited from engaging in the same. Unless otherwise directed by the Trust or the Advisor in writing, the Sub-Advisor may utilize the service of whatever securities brokerage firm or firms it deems appropriate to the extent that such firms are competitive with respect to price of services and execution, and so long as the Sub-Advisor complies with the “best execution” practices described above and applicable law and regulation.
