Investment Objective The investment seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation while limiting exposure to general stock market risk. The fund follows a market neutral strategy, which the managers define as a strategy designed to produce a portfolio that is neutral with respect to general stock market risk (sometimes referred to as beta neutrality). Beta is a measure of a stock's volatility relative to the volatility of the general stock market. The advisor buys equity securities it consider to be undervalued and sells short securities it consider to be overvalued, in amounts that it believes will achieve market neutrality.
