Fund Description

The Portfolio will normally invest at least 80% of its total assets in equity securities issued by U.S. and foreign Energy and Basic Materials Companies, regardless of their stock market value (or “market capitalization”). The Portfolio utilizes the Standard & Poor’s classification system for purposes of determining whether a company is an “Energy or Basic Materials Company.” Standard & Poor’s maintains a proprietary classification system similar to the North American Industry Classification System, which classifies companies according to industry sectors and groups. Companies classified as Energy or Basic Materials Companies by Standard & Poor’s are involved in the exploration, development, production, refining or distribution of oil, natural gas, coal and uranium, the construction or provision of oil rigs, drilling equipment and other energy related services and equipment, basic materials such as metals, minerals, chemicals, water, forest product, precious metals, glass and industrial gases or provide materials, products or services to such companies. Equity securities include common stocks, depositary receipts, securities convertible into common stocks, preferred stocks and warrants. Standard & Poor’s classifications are utilized to identify sectors.

The Adviser employs quantitative and qualitative analysis that seeks to identify reasonably valued, high quality companies within the energy and basic materials sectors. The Adviser’s selection process incorporates a multi-factor valuation framework, capital structure and financial quality analysis. The valuation framework includes, but is not limited to, analysis of price to earnings, price to sales, price to book and price to operating cash flow. Valuation methodology is industry-specific within the energy and basic materials sectors.

This process produces a list of eligible companies which are then subjected to analysis by the Adviser to further understand each company’s business prospects and earnings potential. The Adviser uses the results of this analysis to construct the Portfolio’s security positions.

Under adverse market conditions, the Portfolio may also make temporary investments in investment grade debt securities. Such investment strategies could result in the Portfolio not achieving its investment objective.
