The Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation and current income through investments in equity securities of companies with a small market capitalization and that currently pay, or are reasonably expected to pay dividends to shareholders. The Adviser currently defines small market capitalization as securities within the range of the Russell 2000 Value® Index at the time of investment. The market cap range of the index changes daily, and as a result, the capitalization of small cap companies in which the Fund invests will also change.
Our philosophy is to deliver above average long-term results with less volatility due to the application of a value-oriented investment style. Our investment team uses a bottom-up, fundamental approach to stock selection focusing the majority of the portfolio on dividend paying small-cap companies.
Smaller and medium-sized company stocks are more volatile and less liquid than larger more established company securities. Dividend paying investments may not experience the same price appreciation as nondividend paying investments. Portfolio companies may choose not to pay a dividend or it may be less than anticipated.
