Cognios Large Cap Growth Fund
Cognios Large Cap Growth Fund seeks long-term growth of capital.
Principal Investment Strategies
The Growth Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by purchasing equity securities that the Adviser believes are likely to appreciate. It generally seeks to purchase equity securities of large capitalization U.S. companies, and may purchase American Depository Receipts (“ADR’s”) of international companies trading on U.S. exchanges, that exhibit accelerating growth in earnings and revenue.
The Adviser uses quantitative screens to evaluate liquidity, capitalization, domicile and desired risk attributes to determine an initial universe of large capitalization companies from which the Growth Fund may invest. The Adviser then uses a quantitative process to evaluate the company fundamentals and stocks price trends of the investment candidates. Macroeconomic influences on portfolio candidates are considered before selecting the final securities for purchase in the portfolio. The Adviser considers whether to sell a particular security when the security receives declining scores from the Adviser’s proprietary model or the security causes the Growth Fund’s portfolio to be exposed to unintended risks.
This fund is new and has limited operating history.
