Fund Objective
The Fund seeks to provide a high level of after-tax total return. The Fund invests in dividend-paying common and preferred stocks of US and non-US companies that produce attractive levels of tax-advantaged dividend income and are, in the opinion of the Adviser, undervalued or inexpensive relative to the overall market.
