Investment Objectives

The fundamental investment objective of the Fund is to obtain capital preservation and appreciation by investing primarily in a select number of U.S. equities. The fundamental investment objective of the Fund cannot be changed without the approval of investors who own securities in the Fund.

Investment Strategy

The portfolio sub-advisor seeks to achieve the fundamental investment objective of the Fund by looking for companies that are undervalued and/or offer the potential for above-average earnings growth. The portfolio sub-advisor employs a combination of proprietary financial models and bottom-up fundamental research to identify companies that are selling at what appear to be substantial discounts to their long-term intrinsic value.
