Alta Quality Growth Fund (AQLGX)

Fund Overview and Objectives

A concentrated portfolio of 30 to 35 domestically traded mid- and large-cap companies. The Fund incorporates the core elements of our investment approach:

  • A concentrated portfolio offers the best opportunity to produce alpha.
  • High-quality companies have demonstrated a greater ability to deliver more consistent returns over the long term while exhibiting lower volatility than the broad market
  • While growth is important, it is the profitability of a company that leads to high free cash flow growth.
  • Companies with exceptional free cash flow growth offer investors the best risk/return opportunity.
  • Discipline and patience are essential for investment success in an industry negligent of such qualities.

The Fund’s investment objective is to seek long-term growth of capital with lower than market volatility by investing primarily in equity and similar securities issued by high-quality companies listed on the New York Stock Exchange, the NASDAQ and American Stock Exchange.
