Fund Description

The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in a combination of U.S. and foreign (non-U.S.) equity and debt securities and cash. The fund's asset allocation process utilizes information from the fund's sub-adviser, First Foundation Advisors ("FFA" or the "Sub-Adviser"), to diversify holdings across these asset classes and to adjust the asset class weightings based on market and economic conditions.
