Investment Strategies

  • The portfolio sub-advisor, J. Zechner Associates Inc., considers the credit quality of preferred share issuers, the attributes of individual preferred share issues and the expected direction of dividend yields. The sub-advisor seeks to invest in preferred shares that provide attractive value relative to available preferred share types, issuers and issues. The sub-advisor also considers the relative attractiveness of preferred shares to other fixed income alternatives.
  • Although the Fund is expected to primarily invest in preferred share securities the sub-advisor may at times utilize other fixed income securities including money market securities and government, agency and/or corporate bonds to a maximum of 40% of the portfolio.
  • The Fund may invest up to 20% of the cost of its net assets in foreign securities.
