The ICON Emerging Markets Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation.
The Fund uses a quantitative methodology to identify industries and sectors in emerging market securities that ICON’s methodology suggests are underpriced or overpriced relative to our calculation of intrinsic value. ICON believes that equity markets go through themes over time. Simply stated, stocks in industries that were market leaders at one time tend to become overpriced relative to intrinsic value, and stocks in industries that were not in favor tend to drop below intrinsic value. We compute a value-to-price ratio for the securities in our database to determine whether industries, sectors and a country’s securities markets are over- or underpriced. As themes in the market change over time, different countries, industries, and sectors may become leaders. We sell industries we believe are overpriced and buy industries we believe are underpriced, as identified by our valuation model, to capture developing industry and sector themes without restrictions on market capitalization. The Fund may invest up to 25% of its assets in a single industry. Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in securities of issuers whose principal activities are in an emerging market, or are economically tied to an emerging market country.
