Fund Description

The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by combining a tactical allocation process intended to offer downside protection during significant market declines, with a value-based equity investment methodology. The sub-advisor uses a proprietary quantitative risk model that seeks to remain fully invested in equities continuously, during bull market conditions, and to shift defensive only during sustained periods of heightened equity market risk.
