Trinity Fiduciary Partners Announces Launch of Three New Epiphany Funds

Faith and Family Values Are the Focus of Screening by Epiphany Funds

ARLINGTON, TX--(Marketwire - April 1, 2010) -  Trinity Fiduciary Partners, LLC, investment advisor to the Epiphany Funds, announced today the launch of three new Epiphany Funds.

In addition to its flagship Fund, The Epiphany FFV Fund (EPVNX), the new Funds include The Epiphany FFV Focused Fund (EPFNX); The Epiphany FFV Strategic Income Fund (EPINX); and The Epiphany Large Cap Core Fund (EPCNX). All three funds are sub-advised by Dana Investment Advisors, a firm with $2.6 billion in assets that has been active in socially screened investments for several years. 

Investments with the FFV designation in the Epiphany Family of Funds are evaluated according to the Catholic Scorecard, a proprietary screening methodology developed by Trinity that is objective, defined, and prudent. The focus of the Catholic Scorecard is to protect the dignity of human life, support and protect marriage and families and reasonably safeguard the environment. 

"These new funds come on the heels of our recent announcement of the three year anniversary of our initial Epiphany FFV Fund," said Sam Saladino, CEO of Trinity. "We are thrilled to expand our fund offerings for faith-based investors."

The Epiphany FFV Focused Fund invests in 50 to 60 large U.S. companies that pass the Catholic Scorecard as well as economic criteria.

The Epiphany FFV Strategic Income Fund invests in bonds issued by corporations that pass the Catholic Scorecard and bonds issued by governments and their proxies.

The Epiphany Large Cap Core Fund combines the portfolio of Dana's Large Cap Strategy with Trinity's advocacy through proxy voting according to the Catholic Scorecard.

Mutual Funds involve risk, including possible loss of principal. The fund may invest in REITs. Investing in REITs involves certain unique risks in addition to those risks associated with investing in the real estate industry in general. ETF's are subject to specific risks, depending on the nature of the underlying strategy of the fund. These risks could include liquidity risk, sector risk, as well as risks associated with fixed income securities, real estate investments, and commodities, to name a few. Stocks of mid-cap and small-cap companies are more risky than stocks of larger companies. The Advisor invests in equity securities only if they meet both the Fund's investment and moral requirements, and as such, the return may be lower than if the Adviser made decisions based solely on investment considerations. Before investing you should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Epiphany Funds. This and other important information about the Fund is contained in the prospectus, which can be obtained by visiting www.epiphanyfund.com or by calling 1‐800‐320‐2185. The prospectus should be read carefully before investing. The Epiphany funds are distributed by Northern Lights Distributors, LLC member FINRA.
