Investment Objective The investment seeks capital appreciation. The fund invests a majority of its assets in equity securities of leveraged U.S. companies of any size, including both growth and value stocks, that the managers believe have favorable investment potential. These companies 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"). It is non-diversified.
