Fund Objectives

The investment objective of the fund is to provide maximum capital growth through shares of companies worldwide that are experiencing rising stock price momentum and have superior growth potential through accelerating earnings, sales and cash flow. A bottom-up momentum approach is utilized to build a portfolio of stocks with strong upward price movement. The managers believe in buying high and selling higher. They look for stocks with home-run potential rather than slow, steady growers. Turnover in the portfolio is high because losers are sold quickly in the belief that it is better to take a series of small losses in order to avoid big ones. Winners are allowed to run.
