Fund Description

The fund invests in a concentrated portfolio, consisting mainly of common stocks of companies of any size that are selected using a fundamental, research driven approach. It typically holds a limited number of stocks. Because of this, the fund may at times be substantially over- and under- weighted in certain economic sectors.
