The LOM Emerging Market Fund’s objective is to provide long-term capital growth over the course of a complete market cycle by investing in securities domiciled in and/or deriving the majority of their revenues from emerging countries as popularly defined. The Fund invests in emerging markets through purchase of individual securities and exchange-traded funds (ETF's) and is actively managed with the goal of maximizing risk-adjusted returns through strategic sector allocation, country selection, and currency management. Initially, our strategy is to overweight those economic sectors exhibiting exceptional growth rates, including healthcare and information technology while underweighting commodities companies, government controlled entities and those countries experiencing large current account deficits. The Fund may also invest up to 20 percent of the portfolio in emerging market debt securities.
