Investment Objectives and Policies

The investment objective of this fund is to seek total return, consisting of current income and capital appreciation.

Who Should Invest

The Bishop Street Dividend Value Fund might be a good choice for you if you're seeking to:
  • Invest for total return consisting of current income and capital appreciation
  • Reduce risk in your existing portfolio by adding diversification
  • Participate in the growth potential of the stock market
  • Hedge against inflation
Investment Strategy
The Dividend Value Fund primarily invests (at least 80% of its net assets) in income-producing (dividend paying) equity securities. The Fund invests principally in securities of companies that Columbia Management Advisors, LLC (the "Sub-Adviser") believes are undervalued, but may also invest in securities of companies that the Sub-Adviser believes have the potential for long-term growth. The Fund may invest in companies that have market capitalizations of any size.

The Sub-Adviser combines fundamental and quantitative analysis with risk management in identifying investment opportunities and constructing the Fund's portfolio. The Sub-Adviser considers, among other factors:

  • Various measures of valuation, including price-to-cash flow, price-to-earnings, price-to-sales and price-to-book value;
  • Potential indicators of stock price appreciation, such as anticipated earnings growth, company restructuring, changes in management, business model changes, new product opportunities, or anticipated improvements in macroeconomic factors;
  • The financial condition and management of a company, and
  • Overall economic and market conditions

Industry Diversification

This refers to investing assets over various industry sectors such as financial services, pharmaceuticals, and technology companies. Diversification is important at this level because industry sectors do not perform identically to each other and it enables us to benefit from the growth opportunities of each sector. Over time, portfolio risk is reduced because sectors that perform poorly during a particular time period may be offset by sectors that are performing well.

Company Diversification

This refers to the diversification among stocks within each industry sector. This type of diversification is equally important, since companies within the same industry do not perform identically to each other. As with industry diversification, company diversification provides the opportunity to benefit from stocks that are performing well within the industry sector and offset stocks that are not performing as well.

Portfolio Characteristics

High Quality: Invests in large well-established companies.
Diversification: Average portfolio holding of 70 to 100 individual securities.
Disciplined Investment Strategy: Investment process developed to limit risk.

The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Prior to February 1, 2010, the Fund's principal investment strategy was to invest at least 80% of its net assets in large-cap equity securities; therefore, the past performance shown may have differed had the Fund's current investment strategy been in effect.

Currently the Dividend Value Fund Class I Shares gross expense ratio is 1.37% and net expense ratio is 1.05%. All fee waivers are contractual through April 30, 2016.
