The Westfield Capital Dividend Growth Fundâ€™s (the â€œFundâ€) investment objective is to seek long-term capital growth.In pursuing the Fundâ€™s objective,the Adviser strives to build a portfolio comprised of approximately 30-50 publicly traded equitysecurities of primarily large capitalization issuers with a history or prospect of paying stable or increasing dividends.Under normal circumstances,the Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets,plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes,in dividend-paying equity securities.This investment policy may be changed by the Fund upon 60 daysâ€™ prior written notice to shareholders.While theFund expects to invest primarily in common and preferred stock,it may also invest in other equity securities,including master limited partnerships (â€œMLPsâ€) and American Depositary Receipts (â€œADRsâ€).The Adviser expects that investments in foreign securities,including ADRs,will typically represent less than 35% of the Fundâ€™s assets.In constructing the Fundâ€™s portfolio, the Adviser first identifies companies that it believes possess the following quantitative characteristics: (i) above average dividend growth,sales growth,earnings growth and free cash flow growth; (ii) high current dividendyield; and (iii) a strong balance sheet. In addition,the Adviser seeks to identify companies that it believes possess the following qualitative characteristics: (i) superior company management; (ii) unique market position and broad market opportunities; and (iii) solid financial controls and accounting. The Adviser then performs a fundamental, qualitative review of each identified company,which may includeinitial interviews and continuing contact with company management.The Adviser may sell a security if: (i) the security reaches or falls below a predetermined price target; (ii) a change to a companyâ€™s fundamentals occurs that negatively impacts the Adviserâ€™s original investment thesis; (iii) there is a change in a companyâ€™s dividend policy; or (iv) the Adviser identifies a more attractive investment opportunity.The Fund may buy and sell investments frequently in seeking to achieve its objective.
