Fund Objective

The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective principally by investing in the stock of 25 large cap growth firms selected by Merlin as being, in the opinion of Merlin, among the most attractive large cap growth firms, regardless of industry or sector. Merlin will seek to identify firms that are highly profitable and capable of sustainable earnings growth that Merlin believes will outpace that of the broader market and that trades at an attractive valuation relative to its expected earnings growth. All holdings will be individual US-listed equity securities, with market capitalization typically above $5 billion.

About the Fund

The process of selecting attractive investment opportunities with a 3-5 year outlook is a comprehensive multivariate approach combining bottom-up, top-down and quantitative evaluation combined with a macroeconomic overlay. The Fund's growth strategy is driven by individual stock selection and is typically over weighted towards those sectors that Merlin believes to be the most attractive and represent the best opportunity for growth, both in earning and stock price, and underweighted in (or has no exposure to) the least attractive sectors during any period of time. Merlin expects that, under normal market conditions, the holdings of the Fund will allocated equally across all holdings. Merlin expects to periodically rebalance the portfolio to account for relative changes in value across the portfolio holdings.
