Fund Objectives

The investment objective of the Fund is to seek capital appreciation through investment in equity securities of companies whose product, service or management team the Investment Advisor believes can realize value and growth. The Investment Advisor may rely on top down fundamental research to identify equity securities of companies in a particular industry or sector, but portfolio diversification will be driven primarily from the Funds investments, as opposed to targeting sector weights.
