The Trust is organized as a Massachusetts business trust and is registered under the Act as an open-end management investment company. The Trust currently offers five series, including the Fund (each, a ‘‘Portfolio’’ and collectively, the ‘‘Portfolios’’), each of which has its own investment objectives, policies, and restrictions.1 1 Applicants request that any relief granted pursuant to the application also apply to all series of the Trust now existing or established in the future and all other registered open-end management investment companies and series thereof that: (i) Are advised by the Adviser (or any person controlling, controlled by, or under common control with the Adviser), (ii) operate in an Adviser/Portfolio Manager structure as described in PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 69147 The Adviser is registered as an investment adviser under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (‘‘Advisers Act’’) and serves as investment adviser to the Fund pursuant to an investment advisory agreement with the Trust (‘‘Advisory Agreement’’). The Advisory Agreement was approved by the Trust’s board of trustees (the ‘‘Board’’), including a majority of the trustees who are not ‘‘interested persons,’’ as defined in section 2(a)(19) of the Act, of the Trust (‘‘Independent Trustees’’), and the Adviser as sole shareholder of the Fund.2 2. Under the terms of the Advisory Agreement, the Adviser is required to provide a continuous investment program for the Fund and to determine the composition of the assets of the Fund, including whether to purchase, retain or sell the securities, cash and other investments for the Fund. The Advisory Agreement permits the Adviser to delegate some or all of its investment advisory responsibilities to one or more sub-advisers (‘‘Portfolio Managers’’) pursuant to investment subadvisory agreements (each, a ‘‘Portfolio Management Agreement’’), subject to approval by the Board. The Adviser monitors and evaluates the Portfolio Managers and recommends to the Board their hiring or termination. The Board, including a majority of the Independent Trustees, and the shareholders of each Portfolio approve each Portfolio Management Agreement. Each Portfolio Manager is or will be an investment adviser registered under the Advisers Act. The Adviser compensates each Portfolio Manager out of the fees paid to the Adviser under the Advisory Agreement. 3. Applicants request relief to permit the Adviser to enter into and materially amend Portfolio Management Agreements without obtaining shareholder approval. The requested relief will not extend to any Portfolio Manager that is an affiliated person, as defined in section 2(a)(3) of the Act, of the Trust or the Adviser, other than by reason of serving as a Portfolio Manager the application, and (iii) comply with the terms and conditions of the application (included in the term ‘‘Portfolios’’). The Trust is the only existing registered investment company that currently intends to rely on the order. If the name of any Portfolio contains the name of a Portfolio Manager (as defined below), the name of the Adviser or the name of the entity controlling, controlled by, or under common control with the Adviser that serves as the primary adviser to the Portfolio will precede the name of the Portfolio Manager. 2 The term ‘‘shareholder’’ includes variable life insurance policy and variable annuity contract owners that are unitholders of any sub-account of a registered separate account for which a Portfolio serves as a funding medium.
