“The RiverPark/Gargoyle Hedged Value Fund seeks to provide investors a conservative way to gain market exposure in today’s challenging investing environment,” said Josh Parker, President of Gargoyle. “By selling index call options, the Fund seeks to generate an income cushion to partially hedge its long equity positions.”The RiverPark/Gargoyle Hedged Valued Fund will generally stay fully invested in the equity securities of medium-to-large capitalization companies, which is currently defined as those with a minimum of $1.5 billion in market value. It will partially hedge the stock portfolio by selling near-term index call options.
