The fund:
The AlphaOne VIMCO Small Cap Value Fund will be a long only Small Cap Value fund sub-advised by Villanova Investment Management Company. Villanova Investment Management Company, LLC (the “Sub-Advisor” or “VIMCO”) seeks to generate long-term capital appreciation for the Fund.

Strategy:
By employing its distinctive private market value approach to public equities, while focusing on downside mitigation. The Sub-Advisor approaches investing as a private buyer would, utilizing an owner-like mentality, focusing on long-term business fundamentals and value creation while relying on absolute, not relative, valuations. Combining rigorous fundamental research with detailed financial analysis and proprietary decision-making tools, VIMCO’s strategy is to invest only in companies with what they believe are superior business models, sustainable competitive advantages, and underlevered balance sheets, that produce substantial free cash flows and are led by expert management teams.
