Active Index Investing to Bridge the Gap of Volatility
The Fund is an actively managed, diversified exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) that seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing in a blend of passively managed U.S. equity index ETFs, large-capitalization equity securities and cash or cash equivalents. The Fund will generally hold 5 to 20 investments selected from a universe that includes large-capitalization U.S. equity securities and passively managed index ETFs tracking U.S. small-, mid- and large-capitalization equity indexes (the “Indexes”).
The Sub-Adviser will deduct for overlap between indexes and remove some names based on its proprietary valuation and volatility analysis. The Sub-Adviser will then filter these companies based on its analysis of company growth opportunities, volatility, and downside risk to select the large-capitalization U.S. equity securities for the Fund. Under normal circumstances, the Fund primarily invests in common stocks and shares of ETFs that invest primarily in common stocks or cash-equivalents. The Fund seeks to provide capital appreciation with a focus on capital preservation during periods determined by the Sub-Adviser to pose greater risk of overall market drawdowns. To identify portfolio investments, the Sub-Adviser has developed a proprietary multi-step investment process.
