Why Invest in the Fund


Our disciplined valuation process measures downside risk before upside potential and invests in companies with favorable reward/risk ratios. With this approach we seek to limit losses during market downturns and participate during up markets.


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


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.
