Sextant Growth Fund (SSGFX): Objectives, Strategies & Risks

Investment Objective

Long-term capital growth.

Principal Investment Strategies

The Growth Fund seeks capital growth by investing in common stocks of U.S. companies. The Growth Fund diversifies its investments across industries and companies, and generally follows a value investment style. The Growth Fund looks for companies with growing revenues and earnings, favoring companies trading for less than the adviser’s assessment of intrinsic value, which typically means companies with low price/earning multiples, low price to cash flow, and higher dividend yields. The Growth Fund may invest in securities of smaller or newer companies as well as those of well-seasoned companies of any size.

Principal Risks of Investing

The value of Growth Fund shares rises and falls as the value of the stocks in which the Fund invests goes up and down. Only consider investing in the Fund if you are willing to accept the risk that you may lose money. Fund share prices, yields, and total returns will change with market fluctuations as well as the fortunes of the industries and companies in which the Fund invests.

The Growth Fund may invest in smaller companies, which involve higher investment risks in that they often have limited product lines, markets and resources, or their securities may trade less frequently and have greater price fluctuation than those of larger companies. Growth stocks, which can be priced on future expectations rather than current results, may decline substantially when expectations are not met or general market conditions weaken.
