Investment Objective The investment seeks income and conservation of principal; as a secondary investment objective- the Balanced Fund seeks long-term growth of capital. The fund follows a sustainable investing approach- combining rigorous financial analysis with equally rigorous environmental- social and governance (ESG) analysis in order to identify investments. The adviser normally expects to invest approximately 60-75% of its assets in equity securities and 25-40% of its assets in debt securities (including but not limited to debt securities convertible into equity securities).
