LargeCap Value Fund (WHGLX) (as of 3/24/2017)

Investment Strategy

The LargeCap Value Fund invests in the equity securities of 40-60 large, well-established companies. The investment team pursues mature companies whose prospects for future profitability are significantly stronger than what the current stock price reflects. Seeking to limit downside risk, the investment team employs proprietary fundamental research and analysis to identify financially sound companies that exhibit positive cash flow, improving return on equity and a low or declining debt/equity ratio.

Portfolio risk is managed by limiting sector weights and the position size of each holding. The Fund’s holdings and new investment opportunities are continually assessed for an optimal reward-to-risk ratio. Holdings are sold upon reaching a predetermined price target, a change to a company’s business fundamentals, violation of the original investment thesis, or the identification of a new investment that offers a more attractive opportunity for the Fund.

The LargeCap Value Fund is benchmarked against the Russell 1000 Value Index.
