We employ a fundamental value-oriented philosophy of income consistent with preservation of capital.  Our process combines a top down approach with bottom up fundamental analysis.

Our primary goal for the Yorktown Short Term Bond Fund is to maintain NAV stability (i.e. capital preservation) while generating a reasonable amount of return.  To that end, our clear and repeatable process facilitates timely implementation of strategies designed to help us adjust the risk/reward exposures as we seek to produce attractive total return while also minimizing risk and volatility.
