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 is designed to pursue a consistent absolute return by combining two independent investment strategies - a beta strategy- which provides broad exposure to investment markets- and an alpha strategy- which seeks returns from active trading.
