CHASE GROWTH FUND

Objective

The fund seeks capital appreciation while maintaining a prudent risk profile. The purpose of the fund is to provide a sound investment in an investor's long-term financial plan.

Strategy

The fund's adviser, Chase Investment Counsel Corporation, seeks high quality large-cap growth companies that are prudently priced. Starting with a broad universe of stocks, a fundamental screen is used initially to focus on those names with a history of delivering consistent growth such as earnings growth of 10% or more for the past five years and increasing earnings in seven of the past 10 years. A further analysis refines and ranks the universe to a smaller number of stocks using additional fundamental and technical factors such as positive earnings revision/surprises, strong relative price performance, and improving profitability. The portfolio holds 30-45 stocks diversified by both sector and industry group.
