INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE

The Villere Balanced Fund seeks to achieve long-term capital growth consistent with preservation of capital and balanced by current income.

OVERVIEW

The Balanced Fund invests primarily in small- and mid-cap companies through an active and selective investment approach, creating a concentrated equity portfolio of Villere’s 20-30 best ideas. The Fund pursues investment opportunities over the long term without a constraint of a benchmark, while targeting sustainable long-term growth with reasonable valuations. The Fund offers a mix of stock and bonds in a single fund, and includes a fixed income allocation of 20-50% to help balance risk and reduce volatility.

The Fund is potentially well-suited for investors who desire the diversified mix of stocks, bonds and cash offered by a balanced fund, while having some aggressiveness in terms of the underlying equity component.
