Clarkston Founders Fund

The Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in equity securities of U.S. medium-capitalization companies.

The Fund seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation while minimizing volatility and risk. To accomplish this goal, the Fund invests in companies that Clarkston Capital Partners, the Adviser to the Fund, believes to be of high quality and believes to be undervalued relative to their future growth potential. The Adviser refers to this investment philosophy as Quality/Value.

The Adviser defines high quality companies as those that meet certain financial, business and management criteria, which may vary over time. These criteria include favorable profitability metrics, sustainable competitive advantages and capable management teams.

The Fund is “non-diversified,” which means that it may invest a significant portion of its assets in a relatively small number of issuers.
