Dividend Plus Fund

The Fund's principal investment strategy is to invest in a diversified portfolio of equities, bonds, preferred stock, and options. Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets in equity securities that pay a dividend and are within the market capitalization range of the Russell 1000 Value Index. With respect to its remaining assets, the Fund may invest in corporate bonds, sovereign bonds, convertible bonds, preferred stocks, or other securities or instruments whose prices are linked to the value of the underlying common stock of the issuer of the securities.

 

Focused Value Fund

The Fund's portfolio typically consists of 15 to 25 companies that are weighted according to the Adviser's projected return expectations. The Adviser selects stocks for the Fund using a bottom-up approach that seeks to identify companies that the Adviser believes are undervalued and are likely to experience a rebound in earnings due to an event or series of events that creates a price to earnings expansion resulting in higher stock price valuations.
 

 

Opportunity Fund

Portfolios typically consist of 30 to 60 equity securities that are weighted according to the Advisor's projected return expectations. The fund invests in domestic equity securities, including common and preferred stocks, convertible securities and shares of other investment companies and exchange-traded funds. The Fund may invest in securities of companies of any size. In addition to domestic securities, the Fund may have up to 25% of its net assets invested directly or indirectly in foreign securities, including investments in emerging markets. To the extent deemed appropriate by the Adviser to help mitigate the risks of volatility in the U.S. equity market, the Fund seeks protection of investment principal by using derivative instruments. Through the Fund's use of options, including covered call options, naked put options, bull and bear spread option trades, put options and index options, the Advisor attempts to enhance equity returns relative to a long-only equity strategy and to lower the overall volatility of the Fund's investment portfolio

 

Small Cap Value

Portfolios typically consist of 40 to 60 stocks that are generally in the market cap range of the benchmark Russell 2000 Value index. The portfolio is conviction-weighted, with position sizes typically weighted at 1% to 5% at the time of purchase. Consideration is given to sector and industry exposures with a risk factor and market cap profile similar to the benchmark. There are no over/under weight limits but tracking error and style are monitored.

Diversification does not assure a profit or protect against loss in a declining market.

Derivatives may involve certain costs and risks such as liquidity, interest rate, market, credit, management, and the risk that a position could not be closed when most advantageous. Investing in derivatives could lose more than the amount invested.

Mutual fund investing involves risk; principal loss is possible. Investments in smaller companies involve additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility. Investments in foreign securities involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater in emerging markets. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. The fund may invest in lower-rated and non-rated securities which present a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. The fund may invest in other investment companies, and the cost of investing in the Fund will generally be higher than the cost of investing directly in the shares of the mutual funds in which it invests. By investing in the Fund, you will indirectly bear your share of any fees and expenses charged by the underlying funds, in addition to indirectly bearing the principal risks of the funds. The fund also invests in ETFs. They are subject to additional risks that do not apply to conventional mutual funds, including the risks that the market price of an ETF's shares may trade at a discount to its net asset value ("NAV"), an active secondary trading market may not develop or be maintained, or trading may be halted by the exchange in which they trade, which may impact the Fund's ability to sell its shares. The Fund may use options and futures contracts which have the risks of unlimited losses of the underlying holdings due to unanticipated market movements and failure to correctly predict the direction of the securities prices, interest rates and currency exchange rates. This investment may not be suitable for all investors. Small- and Medium-capitalization companies tend to have limited liquidity and greater price volatility than large-capitalization companies. If a fund is non-diversified, meaning it may concentrate its assets in fewer individual holdings than a diversified fund. The fund is more exposed to individual stock volatility than a diversified fund.
