Fund Goal

We pursue positive investment returns by opportunistically investing in equities, real estate investment trusts (REITs), fixed income securities, preferred stocks, ETFs (exchange traded funds, which may include leveraged and inverse ETFs), options, commodities, and money market funds. The Fund's management team will consider all asset classes and may invest in domestic as well as international securities. The team pursues investment opportunities with the most attractive risk/return profiles.


Our Equity funds focus on growing companies that we believe can strengthen your portfolio—and your equity. We believe that we build fundamentally based equity funds focused on stability and risk-mitigation in evolving market environments—funds that seek to deliver long-term results for you.

We invest in companies that we believe are gaining market share and exhibiting strong potential. We examine protective barriers around competitive advantages for each company, analyze financial results and develop expectations for the future.

Note: Equity securities are more volatile and carry more risk than other forms of investments. 

How We Strive To Make Equity Funds Work For You:


We constantly seek to identify companies capable of generating solid returns for you. We also consider secular trends that lend themselves to long-term investment horizons.


We evaluate risk and reward based on our expectations of company fundamental performance.


We value assets relative to market and growth prospects.


We monitor our investments closely. If we believe the investment prospects are less than we expected, we remove the stock from the portfolio.

Market Concerns

Equity securities (stocks) are more volatile and carry more risk than other forms of investments, including investments in high-grade fixed income securities. Investments in the Fund are subject to the risks related to direct investment in real estate, such as real estate risk, regulatory risks, concentration risk, and diversification risk. Fixed income securities are subject to interest rate risks. The principal value of a bond falls when interest rates rise and rise when interest rates fall. During periods of rising interest rates, the value of a bond investment is at greater risk than during periods of stable or falling rates. High-yield bonds have a higher risk of default or other adverse credit events, but have the potential to pay higher earnings over investment-grade bonds. The higher risk of default, or the inability of the creditor to repay its debt, is the primary reason for the higher interest rates on high-yield bonds. International investing involves increased risk and volatility. Mid- and small-cap companies may be more vulnerable to adverse business or economic developments. Because an ETF charges its own fees and expenses, Fund shareholders will indirectly bear these costs. The use of leverage in an ETF can magnify any price movements, resulting in high volatility. An inverse ETF seeks to provide returns that are the opposite of the underlying referenced financial
