Investment Objective The investment seeks to earn a positive total return that exceeds the return on U.S. Treasury bills by 700 basis points (or 7.00%) on an annualized basis over a reasonable period of time (generally at least three years or more) regardless of market conditions. The fund combines two separate investment strategies. The beta strategy consists of a globally diversified asset allocation strategy. The alpha strategy involves the potential use of various "overlay" strategies. These consist of diverse active trading strategies designed to provide additional total return through the exploitation of market inefficiencies and other conditions.
