Our Investment Philosophy

The portfolio management team believes that investment opportunities exist when a stock’s fundamentals are not reflected in its valuation. Consistent relative outperformance can be captured through rigorous research and analysis that focuses on identifying stocks with clear growth drivers and attractive relative valuations. This philosophy leads the Fund to emphasize equity securities of larger, well-established, mature-growth companies that the management team believes are attractively valued, show the potential to appreciate faster than the rest of the market and offer a growing stream of dividend income. The team concentrates on finding companies that are leaders in their respective industries and have sustainable competitive advantages. They also look for companies with management teams that are dedicated to creating shareholder value.

The risks that the fund is subject to include market risk, company risk, foreign investment risks and small-cap risk.
