Nuance Investments Launches Second Mutual Fund

The firm's Mid Cap Value strategy is now available to a wider range of investors

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nuance Investments, a classic value investment firm led by Scott A. Moore, CFA, a former senior portfolio manager at American Century Investments, today announced the launch of the Nuance Mid Cap Value Fund. The new fund offers institutional and investor share classes trading under the symbols NMVLX and NMAVX, respectively.

This is the second mutual fund offered by Nuance, which launched the Nuance Concentrated Value Fund in May 2011 (Tickers: NCVLX and NCAVX). Nuance also offers Concentrated Value Separate Accounts and Mid Cap Value Separate Accounts.

The new Nuance Mid Cap Value Fund mirrors the strategy and approach of the Mid Cap Value Separate Accounts and seeks long-term capital appreciation primarily through investments in equity securities that the investment team believes are high-quality though temporarily out of favor. Nuance selects securities for the fund's investment portfolio by using an extensive quantitative screening and fundamental research process that identifies leading businesses selling at a discount to fair value with the potential to generate above average returns over time.

"A key to our firm's track record to this point has always been our attention to detail and commitment to understanding as much as possible about each company we consider for inclusion in our portfolios," said Scott A. Moore, CFA, president and chief investment officer of Nuance. "With this new fund, we will continue to apply our in-depth process with a focus on seeking to provide superior risk-adjusted returns for our investors."

Moore, who founded Nuance Investments in 2008, has long committed to managing both Mid Cap Value and Concentrated Value as capacity-constrained strategies. As such, Nuance intends to close the Mid Cap Value Fund to future investment once it reaches a pre-determined asset level.

The fund was launched in collaboration with Montage Investments, Nuance's parent company. According to Gary P. Henson, CFA, CFP®, president and chief investment officer of Montage, "I am extremely pleased that Nuance has launched the Mid Cap Value Fund, as it opens the strategy to a much wider range of investors. Ultimately, the new fund helps us toward our goal of expanding the firm's distinct investments to meet the needs of advisors and their clients."

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Investments in small and mid-capitalization companies involve additional risk such as limited liquidity and greater volatility than larger capitalization companies. Investments in foreign securities involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. The Nuance Concentrated Value Fund is non-diversified, meaning it may concentrate its assets in fewer individual holdings than a diversified fund. Therefore, the Fund is more exposed to individual stock volatility than a diversified fund.

Nuance Investments, LLC is majority owned by Montage Investments, LLC. Nuance Investments is the advisor to the Nuance Concentrated Value Fund and the Nuance Mid Cap Value Fund which are distributed by Quasar Distributors, LLC.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet.

So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
