Fund Objectives

The investment objective of the Fund is to provide the Unitholders with monthly cash distributions, the opportunity for capital appreciation, and lower overall volatility of portfolio returns than would otherwise be experienced by owning Equity Securities of the Brand Leaders directly. To achieve lower overall volatility of portfolio returns, the Fund will generally write covered call options on up to 33% of the portfolio securities. The level of covered call option writing may vary based on market volatility and other factors.
