CEA Fund 1


CEA Fund I employs fundamental analysis to identify companies with future value that will generate long-term positive returns for our investors. The Fund’s investments are primarily in U.S. large-cap and mid-cap stocks.

The Fund will also engage in selective hedging techniques to seek to limit volatility in certain market environments. Limited, selective use of leverage may be used to increase returns.  Additionally, the fund may trade put and call options, primarily those of the companies in which it holds positions. Option contracts and ETFs may also be utilized for liquidity purposes.
