Aquila Three Peaks Opportunity Growth Fund will pursue the objective of capital appreciation by investing at least 70% of assets in equity securities, without regard to whether they could be described as “growth” or “value”, and investing in a range of market capitalizations that could include small-cap, mid-cap, and large-cap. Equity holdings of the Fund may include common stock, warrants, convertible bonds, preferred stock or a limited allocation to foreign equity.
Up to 30% of assets may be invested in fixed income securities including lower-quality, high-yield corporate debt. We believe that high-yield bonds have the ability to moderate equity market volatility by virtue of the coupon payments and the characteristically lower volatility of high-yield corporate bonds relative to equities.
The investment strategy and process described here was initially made available to shareholders of Aquila Three Peaks Opportunity Growth Fund on October 15, 2010.
