Principal Investment Strategies
The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective through investments in long and/or short positions in fixed income securities. The Fund defines fixed income securities as (i) bills, (ii) notes, (iii) structured notes, (iv) bonds, (v) convertible bonds, or (vi) any other debt or debt-related securities, whether issued by U.S. or non-U.S. governments, U.S. or non-U.S. agencies or instrumentalities, or corporate entities, and having fixed, variable, floating or inverse floating rates.
The Adviser uses the HCM-BuyLine® to determine when the Fund should be in or out of fixed income securities. The HCM-BuyLine® uses trend analysis to identify the broad trend in the fixed income market and which fixed income security is currently favored by the market. When the trend is up, the Adviser increases the Fund’s exposure to fixed income. When the trend is down, the Adviser starts to reduce the Fund’s exposure to fixed income. When the Fund is out of the fixed income security market, it invests in (i) put options to hedge the portfolio’s fixed income securities and reduce volatility, (ii) equity index futures, and/or (iii) cash and cash equivalents.
The Adviser maintains the ability to invest a large percentage of the Fund’s holdings in one asset class of the market. The overall asset allocation of the Fund is not fixed. It changes dynamically as the Adviser decides to buy and sell any holding of the portfolio in response to changes in the model’s quantitative measures as a means to take advantage of changes in U.S. and global market trends. The Adviser may engage in frequent buying and selling of the portfolio securities to achieve the Fund’s objective.
