In this replay, Rupal Bhansali, portfolio manager of Ariel Global Fund and of Ariel International Fund, candidly discusses her opinions on the market, including the effects of interest rates on companies, currency fluctuation, certain sectors, and regions. These opinions were current as of the date of the broadcast but are subject to change.

Investments in foreign securities may underperform and may be more volatile than comparable U.S. stocks because of the risks involving foreign economies and markets, foreign political systems, foreign regulatory standards, foreign currencies and taxes. The use of currency derivatives and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) may increase investment losses and expenses and create more volatility. Investments in emerging markets present additional risks, such as difficulties in selling on a timely basis and at an acceptable price. The intrinsic value of the stocks in which Ariel international and global strategies invest may never be recognized by the broader market. The Ariel international and global strategies are often concentrated in fewer sectors than their benchmarks, and their performance may suffer if these sectors underperform the overall stock market. Investing in equity stocks is risky and subject to the volatility of the markets.
