What Set's Us Apart

Appreciation and Resiliency Strategy, plus a Tax-Savvy Structure

  • For investors attracted to the less-volatile, conservative tone a portfolio of high-quality companies exhibiting dividend growth can provide—plus a beneficial structure for wealth preservation and wealth creation as it relates to tax control.
  • Because the Fund is structured as a C-Corp (versus the typical mutual fund RIC structure), the Fund may be subject to lower tax rates than an individual investor.
  • The Fund trades each day at Net Asset Value as it is continuously offering shares for purchase and redemption with a common Open-end mutual fund structure.
  • The Fund has wisely set aside a reserve fund to cover taxes on sales of appreciated securities, many with material imbedded capital gains due to the success of the Fund’s investment process for over three decades.

Credit Quality Breakdown

100% Investment Grade Purchase

FROM THE PROSPECTUS: "The securities in which the Fund invests must, at the time of investment, be rated as investment grade, as determined by the various rating agencies, or if unrated, of comparable quality as determined by the Advisor. Investment grade securities carry a minimum rating of Baa3,BBB–, or BBB– by Moody’s Investors Service Inc. (Moody’s), S&P Global Ratings (S&P), or Fitch Ratings, Inc. (Fitch), respectively, or the equivalent by another nationally recognized statistical rating organization (NRSRO), or are unrated but deemed by the Advisor to be of comparable quality. A security’s quality is determined at the time of purchase and securities that are rated investment grade or the unrated equivalent may be downgraded or decline in credit quality such that subsequently they would be deemed to be below investment grade. If a security’s credit rating is downgraded after the Fund’s investment, the Advisor will monitor the situation to decide if the Fund needs to take any action. The Fund may choose to retain or sell securities that are downgraded or decline in credit quality to below investment grade."

Fixed income investments are affected by a number of risks, including fluctuation in interest rates, credit risk, and prepayment risk. In general, as  prevailing interest rates rise, fixed income prices will fall. The fund may invest in municipal securities, the interest on which may be subject to the federal  alternative minimum tax. After the fund buys a security, the IRS may determine that a bond issued as tax-exempt should in fact be taxable. The risk of  municipal securities generally depends on the financial and credit status of the issuer.
