Overview

Overview

Actively Managed and Sub-Advised by LMCG Investments, LLC

Objective

The Fund seeks long-term capital growth by investing primarily in stocks of small-cap companies.

Small Cap Value Fund Commentary

The Fund's overall active investment process utilizes fundamental bottom-up security selection, while we believe risk control measures seek security and sector diversification.

Investment Style

  • Utilizes a classic value-driven fundamental investment process
  • Seeks to identify companies believed to be selling at a discount to their intrinsic value
  • Employs five valuation screens that seek to identify attractively priced securities
  • Conducts in-depth research and analysis on the securities that pass the valuation screens in an effort to identify leading companies selling at attractive valuations
  • Examines financial statements and assesses the company's management team, competitive strategy, and its current market position
A WORD ABOUT RISK

The Fund invests in equities which are subject to market volatility and loss. The Fund invests in stocks of small-cap companies, which may be subject to more erratic market movements than stocks of larger, more established companies. The Fund invests in value stocks which may not appreciate in value as anticipated or may experience a decline in value. The Fund’s investments in other investment companies will be subject to substantially the same risks as those associated with the direct ownership of the securities comprising the portfolios of such investment companies, and the value of the Fund's investment will fluctuate in response to the performance of such portfolios. In addition, if the Fund acquires shares of investment companies, shareholders of the Fund will bear their proportionate share of the fees and expenses of the Fund and, indirectly, the fees and expenses of the investment companies. Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risk. The Advisor engages a sub-advisor to make investment decisions for the Fund’s portfolio; it may be unable to identify and retain a sub-advisor who achieves superior investment returns relative to other similar sub-advisors.
