The Wildermuth Endowment Fund seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation and income to investors by employing investment strategies and asset allocation techniques followed by traditional endowment funds. The Fund is designed to provide investments and asset classes similar to what might be found in an endowment fund. To best facilitate the implementation of the endowment style investments, a closed-end interval structure is used which provides the adviser the flexibility to include diverse investments and asset classes while also providing investors with daily share purchases and a quarterly limited share repurchases*1
Regarded by many prestigious colleges, universities and other institutions across the globe as the best approach for managing financial assets, the endowment style investing seeks to increase total portfolio return while maintaining an acceptable level of risk through diversifying into performance-oriented assets. Beyond U.S. stocks and bonds, the endowment style investing targets additional asset classes including global equities, real estate, private equity, natural resources, and absolute return investments (hedge funds and managed futures), among others. Endowments are able to take advantage of these different asset classes because they feature a long-term investment time horizon with low liquidity needs, making endowments a viable strategy for investors with similar goals.
The risk profile of individual investors is often significantly different from that of larger institutions using an endowment model including the following: financial resources, asset size, investment experience, investment time horizon, investment goals and liquidity needs. Investing in the Fund involves a considerable amount of risk as stated in the prospectus.
