Investment Objectives

The fund's objective is to provide long-term capital growth. It invests primarily in a mix of mutual funds managed by us and/or other mutual fund managers that invest in U.S. equity securities, and/or directly in U.S. equity securities. Any change to the fundamental investment objectives must be approved by a majority of votes cast at a meeting of securityholders called for that purpose.

Investment Strategy

The Fund invests primarily in underlying funds, including exchange-traded funds that invest in U.S. equity securities and may also invest in a wide variety of U.S equity securities. Where the Fund invests in underlying funds, the weightings of those underlying funds may be rebalanced periodically, at the discretion of the Manager, so as to allow the Manager to use an investment approach that manages risk and increases potential return to the Fund.
