FUND DESCRIPTION

New Century Alternative Strategies is dedicated to a philosophy... diversification can reduce risk without sacrificing performance. The Portfolio's objective is to provide total return while managing volatility and risk. New Century maintains rigorous investment qualifications for the mutual funds in which it invests: strong performance, reasonable risk-adjusted returns and consistent management styles. Diversification does not assure or guarantee better performance and cannot eliminate the risk of investment loss.


ACTIVE MANAGEMENT / DIVERSIFICATION

The Fund allocates its investments among ten separate investment categories including arbitrage, long/short equity, natural resources and asset allocation. Investments in arbitrage strategies, distressed securities, options, foreign securities, and long/short selling will expose the Fund to additional risks and volatility. Short selling involves the risk of potentially unlimited increase in the market value of the security sold short, which could result in potentially unlimited loss for the funds employing this strategy. Investments in foreign securities may involve additional risks, such as currency rate fluctuation, different financial and accounting standards, and political instability that may cause greater volatility and expose the Portfolio to other risks generally not associated with domestic investments. Funds are generally selected which have strong risk adjusted returns and low correlation to the U.S. equity market. The percentage allocated to each category varies within ranges, based on each strategy's relative performance, volatility and correlation to other categories within the portfolio.

 

RISK

Short selling involves the risk of potentially unlimited increase in the market value of the security sold short, which could result in potentially unlimited loss for the fund.  Investments in foreign securities may involve additional risks, such as currency rate fluctuation, different financial and accounting standards, and political instability that may cause greater volatility and expose the Portfolio to other risks generally not associated with domestic investments. Funds are generally selected which have strong risk adjusted returns and low correlation to the U.S. equity market. The percentage allocated to each category varies within ranges, based on each strategyís relative performance, volatility and correlation to other categories within the portfolio.

Certain hedging techniques, arbitrage strategies, distressed securities, options, long/short selling and leverage employed in the funds the Alternative Strategies invests in will expose the fund to additional volatility and risks.
