Investment Objective The investment seeks capital appreciation. The fund holds short-term liquid securities such as money market funds, U.S. Treasury securities or government agency securities for liquidity purposes and to cover the fund's obligation to purchase securities subject to short sales in the future. It also seeks capital appreciation through long positions on equity securities which the fund's Adviser believes are undervalued. Normally, however, the fund is expected to have more short exposure than long exposure on securities and/or the overall market.
