Investment Philosophy & Management

Hilton’s Investment Philosophy

Hilton Capital Management follows a distinctive investment process that principally focuses on yield while attempting to mitigate market risk. The manager aims to invest in high quality companies that may offer an attractive level of risk adjusted returns. When a potential position is evaluated for inclusion, Hilton’s management team examines the company across their capital structure to determine where the investment opportunity offers the best risk adjusted return potential. They seek to limit the volatility in the portfolio and generate solid returns without taking on undue risk. The managers believe, through the use of tactical asset allocation amongst cash, equities, and fixed-income; they can generate attractive returns while reducing fund volatility over market cycles.

The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate. An investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Returns for performance under one year are cumulative, not annualized.

Short-term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the fund’s future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns. Because of ongoing market volatility, fund performance may be subject to substantial short-term changes. For additional information, see the fund’s prospectus.
