Dividend Growth Fund

Mutual Funds

The Oak Ridge family of mutual funds embodies our steadfast commitment to serving the investors who place their trust in our judgment. Our mandate is to invest our clients’ assets in high-quality equity opportunities according to each portfolio’s stated investment objective.


Current income and long-term capital appreciation

We look for high-quality companies with sound earnings growth, attractive current yields and a demonstrated potential to increase dividend payouts over the long term. We often seek to buy now for dividend strength later.

We believe companies with the capacity to deliver strong dividend yields and sustained earnings may present opportunities to preserve capital and buffer risk over time, even in challenging economic environments.

Important Risks: Investment in equity securities involves substantial risks and may be subject to wide and sudden fluctuations in market value. Investing in mid-cap companies may be subject to more abrupt or erratic market movements and may have lower trading volumes or more erratic trading than securities of larger companies. International investments are subject to unique risks including currency fluctuations, social, economic and political uncertainties, which could increase volatility. In addition, changes in exchange rates and interest rates may adversely affect the value of the fund’s foreign investments. The fund is a newly organized series of an open-end investment company with a limited history of operations. Please see the prospectus for a more complete discussion of the fund’s risks.

Before investing you should carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other information is in the prospectus, a copy of which may be obtained by calling 855-551-5521or clicking here. Please read the prospectus carefully before you invest.

1 P/E refers to the price of a stock divided by its earnings per share. Reflects weighted average of trailing 12-month price-to-earnings ratios of portfolio holdings. Market Capitalization reflects the total U.S. -denominated portion of the portfolio. Turnover Ratio is the percentage of a fund’s assets that have changed over the course of a given time period, usually a year. Mutual funds with higher turnover ratios tend to have higher expenses.

2 The S&P 500 Index is an unmanaged index of 500 selected common large capitalization stocks listed on the New York Stock Exchange or NASDAQ that is often used as a measure of the U.S. stock market. An investor cannot invest directly in an index.

3 Beta is a measure of the volatility of a fund relative to the overall market. A beta less than one indicates lower risk than the market; a beta greater than one indicates higher risk than the market.

4 R-squared represents the percentage of the portfolio's movements that can be explained by the general movements of the market. Index portfolios will tend to have R-squared values very close to 100.

5 Standard deviation is a statistical measure of the historic volatility of a portfolio.
