Why Invest in the Fund

DEFENSIVE APPROACH

Our disciplined valuation process measures downside risk before upside potential and invests in companies with favorable reward/risk ratios. This approach is consistent across the firm since its founding more than 30 years ago.

HIGH-QUALITY COMPANIES

The Fund seeks high-quality companies that can withstand an economic downturn given their balance sheet strength, earnings stability and operating efficiency.

RESULTS WITH LESS VOLATILITY

Focused on mitigating losses in down market conditions while participating in up markets, the Fund is designed to compound strong returns over a full market cycle with lower volatility than the index.
