Fund Overview

The Beech Hill Total Return Fund fits as a standalone balanced portfolio or as a core anchor holding in a multi investment strategy. It primarily comprises large-cap equities, convertible securities, and bonds.

Why Invest In This Fund

The fund is suited to individual investors looking for a balanced tactical investment strategy targeting securities that offer both appreciation and yield. The fund seeks to provide competitive risk adjusted returns, low volatility, and tax efficiencies utilizing a shifting mix of large cap equities, convertible securities and bonds.

Fund Description

The fund overlays a fundamental value investment discipline with a flexible asset allocation strategy in order to capitalize on opportunities in different market sectors and asset classes. The fund seeks to benefit from investing in long-term economic trends, utilizing contrarian judgment and exploiting mispriced valuations. The equity portion of the portfolio will be comprised of a diversified group of highly liquid, large cap, dividend paying, quality companies while the fixed-income portion will include traditional bonds as well as convertibles selected based upon their yield, credit quality and appreciation potential. Cash will be utilized as a defensive measure and may rise to a large percentage of the portfolio in times of market stress. Our adaptive approach, incorporating both appreciation and income strategies, allows the fund to opportunistically benefit as market conditions and valuations dictate.

There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective.

Mutual Funds involve risk including the possible loss of principal. There is a risk that issuers and counterparties will not make payments on securities and other investments held by the Fund, resulting in losses to the Fund. In general, the price of a fixed income security falls when interest rates rise. Foreign investing, indirectly through ADRs, involves exposure to adverse fluctuations in foreign currency values, adverse political, social and economic developments, less liquidity, greater volatility, less developed or less efficient trading markets, political instability and differing auditing and legal standards. Using borrowing to increase the size of the Fund's investment portfolio will cause the Fund to incur additional expenses and magnify the Fund's gains or losses. Increased portfolio turnover may result in higher brokerage commissions, dealer mark-ups and other transaction costs, and may result in taxable capital gains.
