Fund Description

The James Balanced Golden Rainbow Fund Retail Class (GLRBX) is an actively managed balanced fund, meaning it owns both stocks and bonds. However, unlike static, index-based balanced funds, GLRBX uses fundamental screens to find both domestic and international stocks that meet certain value criteria. The same can be said for the fixed side of the portfolio. The fund may also invest in ETFs and hold as much as 50% of its portfolio in cash if market conditions suggest it.

Given the fund’s unique spin on the balance portfolio, investors may want to use it as a satellite position in their portfolios, despite its low costs. The fund is managed by James Investment Research, Inc.
