Investment Objective The investment seeks capital appreciation. The fund invests in equity securities of companies of any size- including both growth and value stocks- that the managers believe have favorable investment potential. The adviser expects to invest in leveraged companies- which employ significant leverage in their capital structure through borrowing from banks or other lenders or through issuing fixed-income- convertible or preferred equity securities- and their fixed income securities are often rated below-investment-grade (sometimes referred to as "junk bonds"). The fund is non-diversified.
