Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund seeks to achieve its objective mainly by acquiring common stocks of well-financed companies (meaning companies with high quality assets and conservative levels of liabilities) at a discount to what the Adviser believes is their intrinsic value. It may invest in companies of any market capitalization and across all industries. The fund may also acquire senior securities- such as convertible securities- preferred stocks and debt instruments- that the Adviser believes are undervalued. It also invests in both domestic and foreign securities.
