What is a Subadvisory Agreement?

A subadvisory agreement is a legally binding agreement between a mutual fund and an advisor. These agreements outline the terms and conditions of the relationship between the fund and the advisor and what rights and responsibilities are expected of each party.

A sub advisor is responsible for overseeing and making decisions for the fund, and the agreement makes sure both parties understand what those operational details will be. A subadvisory agreement may include terms and conditions such as the expected services provided by the sub advisor, what the sub advisor can be held liable for, and what both parties will do in the event of termination of the agreement.

The Sub-Adviser will:

 

  (a) Provide investment advisory services, including but not limited to research, advice and supervision for the Portfolio or Segment.

 

  (b) Implement the approved investment program by placing orders for the purchase and sale of securities without prior consultation with the Adviser and without regard to the length of time the securities have been held, the resulting rate of portfolio turnover or any tax considerations, subject always to the provisions of the Fund’s registration statement, Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws and the requirements of the 1940 Act, as each of the same shall be from time to time in effect; provided however, that copies of all such documents shall have been provided to Sub-Adviser prior to their effectiveness marked to show the proposed changes.

 

  (c) Maintain, in connection with the Sub-Adviser’s investment advisory services obligations, compliance with the 1940 Act and the regulations adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission thereunder and the Portfolio or Segment investment strategies and restrictions as stated in the Fund’s prospectus and statement of additional information subject to receipt of such additional information as may be required from the Adviser and provided in accordance with Section 15(d) of this Agreement.

 

  (d)

Report to the Board of Directors of the Fund at such times and in such detail as the Board of Directors may reasonably request in order to enable it to determine that the investment policies, procedures and approved investment program of the Portfolio or Segment are being observed. The Sub-Adviser will also keep the Board of Directors

informed of important developments affecting the Fund, the Portfolio and the Sub-Adviser, and on its own initiative will furnish the Adviser and the Board of Directors from time-to-time with such information as the Sub-Adviser may believe appropriate, whether concerning the individual companies whose securities are held by the Portfolio, the industries in which they engage, or the economic, social or political conditions prevailing in each country in which the portfolio maintains investments.

 

  (e) Furnish, at its own expense, (i) all necessary investment and management facilities, including salaries of clerical and other personnel required for it to execute its duties faithfully, and (ii) administrative facilities, including bookkeeping, clerical personnel and equipment necessary for the efficient conduct of the investment advisory affairs of the Portfolio or Segment.

 

  (f) Open accounts with broker-dealers and futures commission merchants (“broker-dealers”), select broker-dealers to effect all transactions for the Portfolio or Segment, place all necessary orders with broker-dealers or issuers (including affiliated broker-dealers), and negotiate commissions, if applicable. To the extent consistent with applicable law and the investment objectives of the Portfolio, purchase or sell orders for the Portfolio or Segment may be aggregated with contemporaneous purchase or sell orders of other clients of the Sub-Adviser. In such event allocation of securities so sold or purchased, as well as the expenses incurred in the transaction, will be made by the Sub-Adviser in the manner the Sub-Adviser considers to be the most equitable and consistent with its fiduciary obligations to the Portfolio and to other clients. The Sub-Adviser will seek to obtain best execution of transactions for the Portfolio or Segment at prices which are advantageous to the Portfolio or Segment and at commission rates that are reasonable in relation to the benefits received. However, the Sub-Adviser may select brokers or dealers on the basis that they provide brokerage, research or other services or products to the Sub-Adviser. To the extent consistent with applicable law, the Sub-Adviser may pay a broker or dealer an amount of commission for effecting a securities transaction in excess of the amount of commission or dealer spread another broker or dealer would have charged for effecting that transaction if the Sub-Adviser determines in good faith that such amount of commission is reasonable in relation to the value of the brokerage and research products and/or services provided by such broker or dealer. This determination, with respect to brokerage and research products and/or services, may be viewed in terms of either that particular transaction or the overall responsibilities which the Sub-Adviser and its affiliates have with respect to the Portfolio or Segment as well as to accounts over which they exercise investment discretion. Not all such services or products need be used by the Sub-Adviser in managing the Portfolio or Segment. In the event that the Adviser or the Fund shall direct the selection of broker-dealers for the execution of security transactions for all or a portion of the Portfolio or any Segment managed by the Sub-Adviser, the Adviser and/or the Fund shall instruct the Sub-Adviser in writing with the name(s) of such designated broker(s) (a “directed broker”), which instruction shall not be deemed effective until countersigned by the Sub-Adviser, and the Adviser and/or the Fund specifically agree that the Sub-Adviser shall not be responsible to seek best execution for portfolio transactions placed with such directed broker.

  (g) Upon reasonable request, provide assistance and recommendations for the determination of the fair value of certain securities when reliable market quotations are not readily available for purposes of calculating net asset value in accordance with procedures and methods established by the Fund’s Board of Directors.

 

  (h) Maintain all accounts, books and records with respect to the Portfolio or Segment as are required pursuant to the 1940 Act and Investment Advisers Act, and the rules thereunder, and furnish the Fund and the Adviser with such periodic and special reports as the Fund or Adviser may reasonably request. In compliance with the requirements of Rule 31a-3 under the 1940 Act, the Sub-Adviser hereby agrees that all records that it maintains for the Portfolio or Segment are the property of the Fund, agrees to preserve for the periods described by Rule 31a-2 under the 1940 Act any records that it maintains for the Portfolio or Segment and that are required to be maintained by Rule 31a-1 under the 1940 Act, and further agrees to surrender promptly to the Fund any records that it maintains for the Portfolio or Segment upon request by the Fund or the Adviser. The Sub-Adviser has no responsibility for the maintenance of Fund records except insofar as is directly related to the services the Sub-Adviser provides to the Portfolio or Segment.

 

  (i) Observe and comply with Rule 17j-1 under the 1940 Act and the Sub-Adviser’s Code of Ethics adopted pursuant to such Rule 17j-1 and Rule 204A-1 under the Investment Advisers Act as the same may be amended from time to time. The Adviser acknowledges receipt of a copy of Sub-Adviser’s current Code of Ethics. Sub-Adviser shall promptly forward to the Adviser a copy of any material amendment to the Sub-Adviser’s Code of Ethics along with certification that the Sub-Adviser has implemented procedures for administering the Sub-Adviser’s Code of Ethics.

 

  (j) From time to time as the Adviser or the Fund may reasonably request, furnish the requesting party reports on portfolio transactions and reports on investments held by the Portfolio or Segment, all in such detail as the Adviser or the Fund may reasonably request. The Sub-Adviser will make available its officers and employees to meet with the Adviser’s Board of Directors at the Adviser’s principal place of business on due notice to review the investments of the Portfolio or Segment.

 

  (k) Upon request by the Adviser, provide such information as may be required for the Portfolio or the Adviser to comply with their respective obligations under applicable laws, including, without limitation, the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), the 1940 Act, the Investment Advisers Act, the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and any state securities laws, and any rule or regulation thereunder.

 

4


  (l) Provide a copy of the Sub-Adviser’s Form ADV and any material amendments thereto contemporaneously with the filing of such documents with the Securities and Exchange Commission or other regulatory agency.

 

  (m) The Adviser and the Fund agree and understand that the Sub-Adviser is not responsible to advise or act for the Portfolio in any legal proceedings, including bankruptcies or class actions, involving securities held or previously held by the Portfolio or Segment or the issuers of such securities. The Adviser and the Fund agree and understand that the Sub-Adviser is not responsible to vote or give any advice about how to vote proxies for securities held by the Portfolio or Segment.

 

  (n) In carrying out its obligations under this Agreement, the Sub-Adviser shall at all times comply with:

 

(i) all applicable provisions of the 1940 Act, and any rules and regulations adopted thereunder;

 

(ii) the provisions of the registration statement of the Fund, as it may be amended from time-to-time, under the 1940 Act;

 

(iii) the provisions of the Articles of Incorporation of the Fund, as they may be amended from time-to-time;

 

(iv) the provisions of the By-laws of the Fund, as they may be amended from time-to-time, or resolutions of the Board of Directors as may be adopted from time-to-time;

 

(v) the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, applicable to the Fund or the Portfolio; and

 

(vi) any other applicable provisions of state or federal law.

 

  (o) As in the case with respect to the Adviser under the Investment Advisory Agreement, any investment activities undertaken by the Sub-Adviser relating to the Portfolio, shall at times be subject to the direction and control of the Fund’s Board of Directors, as well as the Adviser.

 

3. Compensation

 

As full compensation for all services rendered and obligations assumed by the Sub-Adviser hereunder with respect to the Portfolio or Segment, the Adviser shall pay the compensation specified in Appendix A to this Agreement. The Sub-Adviser acknowledges and agrees that the Adviser shall be solely responsible for the fees of the Sub-Adviser for its services hereunder, and the Sub-Adviser shall have no claim against the Fund or the Portfolio with respect to its compensation under this Agreement.

  (a) Neither the Sub-Adviser nor any of its directors, officers, employees, agents or affiliates shall be liable to the Adviser, the Portfolio or its shareholders for any loss suffered by the Adviser or the Portfolio resulting from any error of judgment or mistake of law made in the good faith exercise of the Sub-Adviser’s investment discretion in connection with selecting investments for the Portfolio or Segment or as a result of the failure by the Adviser or any of its affiliates to comply with the terms of this Agreement except for losses resulting from willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence of, or from reckless disregard of, the duties of the Sub-Adviser or any of its directors, officers, employees, agents, or affiliates. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Sub-Adviser shall not be liable for actions taken or non-actions with respect to the performance of services under this Agreement based upon information, instructions or requests given or made to Sub-Adviser by the Adviser or information provided by any of the Portfolio’s custodian, administrator or fund accountant. The Adviser shall be responsible at all times for supervising Sub-Adviser, and this Agreement does not in any way limit the duties and responsibilities that the Adviser has agreed to under the Advisory Agreement and applicable laws.

 

  (b) In no event will the Sub-Adviser have any responsibility for any other portfolio of the Fund, for any portion of the Portfolio not managed by the Sub-Adviser or for the acts or omissions of the Adviser or any other sub-adviser to the Fund or Portfolio. In particular, in the event the Sub-Adviser shall manage only a Segment of the Portfolio, the Sub-Adviser shall have no responsibility for the Portfolio’s being in violation of any applicable law or regulation or investment policy or restriction applicable to the Portfolio as a whole or for the Portfolio’s failing to qualify as a regulated investment company under the Code, if the securities and other holdings of the Segment of the Portfolio managed by the Sub-Adviser are such that such Segment would not be in such violation or fail to so qualify if such Segment were deemed a separate series of the Fund or a separate “regulated investment company” under the Code. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed a limitation or waiver of any obligation or duty that may not by law be limited or waived.

 

5. Indemnification by the Sub-Adviser.

 

The Adviser shall not be responsible for, and the Sub-Adviser shall indemnify and hold the Fund, the Adviser and the Portfolio harmless from and against, any and all losses, damages, costs, charges, counsel fees, payments, expenses and liability arising out of or attributable to the willful misfeasance, bad faith, gross negligence or reckless disregard of obligations or duties of the Sub-Adviser hereunder or any of its officers, directors, employees or agents; provided, however, that in no case is the Sub-Adviser’s indemnity in favor of the Adviser, the Fund or the Portfolio deemed to protect such person against any liability to which any such person would otherwise be subject by reason of willful misconduct, bad faith or gross negligence in the performance of its duties or by reason of its reckless disregard of its obligations and duties under this Agreement.

6. Indemnification by the Fund and the Adviser.

 

In the absence of willful misfeasance, bad faith, gross negligence or reckless disregard of duties hereunder on the part of the Sub-Adviser or its affiliates or any of their respective officers, directors, employees or agents (“Sub-Adviser Indemnitees”), the Fund and the Adviser, severally and not jointly, hereby agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Sub-Adviser Indemnitees against all claims, actions, suits or proceedings at law or in equity whether brought by a private party or a governmental department, commission, board, bureau, agency or instrumentality of any kind, arising from the advertising, solicitation, sale, purchase or pledge of securities, whether of the Portfolio or other securities, undertaken by the Portfolio, its officers, directors, employees or affiliates, resulting from any violations of the securities laws, rules, regulations, statutes and codes, whether federal or of any state, by the Portfolio, its officers, directors, employees or affiliates. Federal and state securities laws impose liabilities under certain circumstances on persons who act in good faith, and nothing herein shall constitute a waiver or limitation of any rights which the Fund or the Adviser may have and which may not be waived under any applicable federal and state securities laws; provided, however, that in no case is the Fund’s or the Adviser’s indemnity in favor of the Sub-Adviser Indemnitees deemed to protect such person against any liability to which any such person would otherwise be subject by reason of willful misconduct, bad faith or gross negligence in the performance of its duties or by reason of its reckless disregard of its obligations and duties under this Agreement.

 

7. Supplemental Arrangements

 

The Sub-Adviser may enter into arrangements with other persons affiliated with the Sub-Adviser or with unaffiliated third parties to better enable the Sub-Adviser to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement for the provision of certain personnel and facilities to the Sub-Adviser, the cost of such arrangements to be borne solely by the Sub-Advisor, subject where required by applicable law, to approval of the Board of Directors of the Fund.

  (b) If the shareholders of the Portfolio fail to approve the Agreement or any continuance of the Agreement in accordance with the requirements of the 1940 Act, the Sub-Adviser will continue to act as Sub-Adviser with respect to the Portfolio or Segment pending the required approval of the Agreement or its continuance or of any contract with the Sub-Adviser or a different manager or sub-adviser or other definitive action; provided, that the compensation received by the Sub-Adviser in respect to the Portfolio or Segment during such period is in compliance with Rule 15a-4 under the 1940 Act.

 

  (c) This Agreement may be terminated at any time without the payment of any penalty by the Board of Directors of the Fund or by the Sub-Adviser, or the Adviser or by vote of a majority of the outstanding voting securities of the Portfolio on sixty days written notice.

The Adviser has no objection to the Sub-Adviser’s acting in such capacities, provided that whenever the purchase or sale of securities or other investments of the same issuer may be deemed by the Sub-Adviser to be suitable for two or more investment companies or accounts managed by the Sub-Adviser, the available securities or investments will be allocated in a manner believed by the Sub-Adviser to be equitable to each of them. It is recognized and acknowledged by the Adviser that in some cases this procedure may adversely affect the price paid or received by the Portfolio or the size of the position obtained for or disposed of by the Portfolio. In addition, the Adviser understands, and has advised the Fund’s Board of Directors, that the persons employed by the Sub-Adviser to assist in the Sub-Adviser’s duties under this Agreement will not devote their full time to such service and nothing contained in this Agreement will be deemed to limit or restrict the right of the Sub-Adviser or any of its affiliates to engage in and devote time and attention to other businesses or to render services of whatever kind or nature.

APPENDIX A

 

SUB-ADVISORY FEES

 

The Sub-Adviser shall serve as investment sub-adviser for the Portfolio or Segment. The Adviser will pay the Sub-Adviser, as full compensation for all services provided under this Agreement, an annual fee computed at the following annual rates of the Portfolio’s or Segment’s average daily net assets:

 

60 bp on the first $100 million

44 bp on the next $300 million

33 bp on the next $100 million

44 bp on amounts exceeding $500 million

 

The Sub-Adviser’s fee shall be accrued for each calendar day and the sum of the daily fee accruals shall be paid monthly in arrears to the Sub-Adviser. The daily fee accruals will be computed by multiplying the fraction of one over the number of calendar days in the year by the applicable annual rate set forth in the schedule above and multiplying this product by the net assets of the Portfolio or Segment, as determined in accordance with the Portfolios’ Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information as of the close of business on the previous business day on which the Portfolio was open for business.

 

If this Agreement becomes effective or terminates before the end of any month, the fee (if any) for the period from the effective date to the end of such month or from the beginning of such month to the date of termination, as the case may be, shall be prorated according to the proportion which such period bears to the full month in which such effectiveness or termination occurs.
