Fund Objectives

The Fund's investment objective is to maximize absolute returns on investments. The Fund intends to accomplish its set objective through superior securities selection by taking both long and short investment positions. The Funds managers may also execute arbitrage strategies, seek spin-off opportunities and participate in select private placements in order to maximize investment returns. The investment team will vary the allocation of long and short positions depending on their view of the domestic and international economy and market trends including liquidity flows within the U.S. financial system. The Fund will overweight certain industry sectors and asset classes, such as cash and gold when deemed appropriate by the Investment Manager.
