Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in publicly-traded equity securities of alternative energy companies (both U.S. and non-U.S.). The Advisor will invest the fund's assets in securities of all market capitalization companies, but under normal market conditions, it will invest in companies with a minimum market capitalization of $500 milllion. The fund will invest in companies economically tied to U.S. and to foreign countries, including, potentially, companies domiciled or traded in emerging markets.
