New Century Balanced is
dedicated to a philosophy...diversification can reduce risk without
sacrificing performance. The Portfolio's objective is to earn income
and, as a secondary objective, to provide capital growth. 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.
Diversification through a blend
of value and growth investments allocated among large-cap,
mid-cap, small-cap and international equity positions and among
domestic, high-yield and foreign fixed-income positions.
Access to no-load mutual funds,
institutional funds and ETFs
Disciplined ranges in both equity and
fixed-income categories reduce risk
Investments are not limited to a
single fund family or institution
Active management consistently
monitors fund objectives and performance
Simplified year-end tax reporting on
a single tax statement
The New Century Balanced
Portfolio seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing
primarily in shares of registered investment companies that
emphasize investments in equities such as common stocks, preferred
stocks or securities convertible into stocks (domestic and foreign),
in fixed income securities such as fixed rate debt, variable rate
debt or high yield, lower rated debt instruments (domestic and
foreign), or in a composite of such securities.
The Balanced Portfolio will use a variety of investment techniques
designed to generate dividends (including dividends of funds in
which we invest that are derived from interest) and other income.
The Balanced Portfolio will diversify its equity and fixed
income investments by investing primarily in investment companies
that concentrate in different segments of the equity markets and
investment companies that concentrate in different segments of the
fixed income markets. For
example, the portion of the Balanced Portfolio that is invested in
equities may be invested in investment companies that emphasize
growth, growth and income, equity income, small-capitalization and
foreign equities. The
portion of the Balanced Portfolio that is invested in fixed income
securities may be invested in investment companies that emphasize
domestic, high yield (including lower rated) and foreign fixed
Balanced Portfolio will maintain not less than 25% of its assets in
fixed income investments by selecting underlying funds that invest
in such securities.
