Fund Overview

Philosophy and Process

  • The Fund seeks capital appreciation and, secondarily, income by investing primarily in a group of diversified Sterling Capital Funds which invest mainly in equity and fixed income securities.
  • The portfolio management team will make allocation decisions according to their outlook for the economy, financial markets and relative market valuation of the Underlying Funds.
  • The Fund will invest 45% to 75% of its total assets in Underlying Funds which invest mainly in equity securities, 25% to 55% of its total assets in Underlying Funds which invest mainly in fixed income securities (including investment grade and high yield ("junk") bonds and floating rate securities) and up to 15% of its total assets in underlying Funds which are money market funds.

Investment Considerations

The Strategic Allocation Funds (Funds of Funds) are primarily concentrated in underlying funds and are therefore subject to the same risks the funds are invested in as well as entails higher expenses than if invested into a fund directly. The underlying Funds may be invested in equity securities and is subject to market risk. Investments in bonds are subject to credit risk, call risk and interest rate risk so that as interest rates rise the value of bond prices will decline. The underlying Funds may invest in more aggressive investments such as foreign securities, which involves certain risks such as currency volatility, political and social instability and reduced market liquidity; small capitalization companies subject to greater volatility and less liquidity due to limited resources or product lines and more sensitive to economic factors; and high-yield (junk) debt securities which involve greater risks than investment grade bonds.

An investment in a money market fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or any other government agency. Although a money market fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in them.
