Fund Description

The fund employs a value strategy and invests primarily in common and preferred stocks whose market prices do not reflect their true values, as determined by the Advisor. The Advisor utilizes a bottom-up approach to stock selection, focusing on company fundamentals. The Advisor typically invests in companies with sound fundamentals that the Advisor believes are selling at discounted valuations and have low price-to-earnings ("P/E") ratios.
