TETON Westwood Balanced Fund Class A
Fund Overview for TW Balanced Fund A
The TETON Westwood Balanced Fund seeks to provide capital appreciation and current income resulting in a high total investment return consistent with prudent investment risk and a balanced investment approach.
Principal Investment Strategies:
The Fund invests in a combination of equity and debt securities. The Fund is primarily equity-oriented, and uses a top down approach in seeking to provide equity-like returns but with lower volatility than a fully invested equity portfolio. The Sub-Adviser will typically invest 30% to 70% of the Fund's assets in equity securities and 70% to 30% in debt securities, and the balance of the Fund's assets in cash or cash equivalents. The actual mix of assets will vary depending on the Sub-Adviser's analysis of market and economic conditions.
The Fund invests in stocks of seasoned companies. Seasoned companies generally have market capitalizations of $1 billion or more and have been operating for at least three years. The Sub-Adviser chooses stocks of seasoned companies with proven records and above-average earnings growth potential.
The debt securities held by the Fund are investment grade securities of corporate and government issuers and commercial paper and mortgage- and asset-backed securities. Investment grade debt securities are securities rated in one of the four highest ratings categories by a nationally recognized rating agency. There are no restrictions on the maximum or minimum maturity of any individual security that the Fund may invest in.
The Fund may appeal to you if:
- you are a long-term investor
- you seek growth of capital and current income
- you want participation in market growth with some emphasis on preserving assets in "down" markets
