Investment Objectives

The fundamental investment objective of the Fund is to achieve long-term growth and capital appreciation by investing primarily in equity securities of United States-based corporations.

Investment Strategy

All of the assets of the Fund will be invested in U.S. securities. The Manager’s core investment philosophy is “Growth at a Reasonable Price”. In practice, this means investment in companies with good growth potential whose common stock can be bought at a reasonable valuation. Identifying companies that are undervalued in relation to their expected growth is a challenging, ongoing process. Equity markets are affected by countless economic, market, industry and company variables.
