Fund Description

The fund normally invests at least 80% of its assets in companies considered by the Adviser (at the time of purchase) to be large-capitalization companies. The Adviser regularly reviews the fund's investments and will sell securities when the Adviser believes the securities are no longer attractive because (1) of a deterioration in rank of the security in accordance with the Adviser's process, (2) of price appreciation, (3) of a change in the fundamental outlook of the company or (4) other investments available are considered to be more attractive.
