Investing Risk

Investing in any mutual fund involves risk, including the risk that you may lose all or part of the money you invest. The Fund is a non-diversified fund which may present greater risks than investing in a diversified fund. It invests in equity securities which carry the potential for unpredictable drops in value and periods of lackluster performance. The Fund typically invests in securities that are considered undervalued by the Advisor. This may result in the Fund being invested in lesser-known companies or those out of favor with other investors. There is the chance these securities remain out of favor or not generally recognized by the market.
