Investment Strategies

  • The Fund generally invests in the securities of larger capitalization companies.
  • The Fund uses a value investment philosophy in selecting equity securities. This investment philosophy is based upon the belief that, over time, a company’s stock price converges with the Portfolio Advisor's estimate of its intrinsic or true business value. By “true business value”, the Portfolio Advisor means an estimate of the price a knowledgeable buyer would pay to acquire the entire business. The Portfolio Advisor believes that investing in securities priced significantly below their true business value presents the best opportunity to achieve the Fund’s investment objective.
