The ICON Consumer Staples Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation.
The Fund uses a quantitative methodology to identify securities ICON believes are underpriced relative to value. It normally invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in equity securities of companies in the Consumer Staples sector (as determined by the Global Industry Classification Standard) including, but not limited to: Agricultural Products, Brewers, Distillers & Vintners, Drug Retail, Food Distributors, Food Retail, Household Products, Hypermarkets & Super Centers, Packaged Foods & Meats, Personal Products, Soft Drinks and Tobacco. This strategy may not be changed unless the Fund shareholders are given at least 60 days’ prior notice. Equity securities in which the Fund may invest include common stocks and preferred stocks of companies of any market capitalization.
Investing in securities involves inherent risks, including the risk that you can lose the value of your investment. There is no assurance that the investment process will consistently lead to successful results.
Consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and share classes of each ICON Fund carefully before investing.
