Lacerte Capital Launches the Lacerte Guardian Fund

Large-Cap Equity Mutual Fund Utilizes Put Options to Limit Risk and Enhance Return

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - October 12, 2009) - Lacerte Capital Advisers, L.L.C., an innovative large-cap equity investment management firm with a protective approach, is excited to announce the launch of its product, The Lacerte Guardian Fund (Symbols: LGFIX (inst.), LGFRX (retail). The Guardian Fund invests in S&P equity indexes, complemented with select S&P equities that are protected with put options 100% of the time. Through the use of protective put options, the Fund allows for enhanced performance and limited risk.

"The Lacerte Guardian Fund reflects precisely our mission to offer prudent exposure to the equity markets, with a long-only and unleveraged strategy," said Doug Wynn, President, Lacerte Capital Advisers, L.L.C. "By using put options to limit risk and capitalize on volatility, we are responding to the increasing demand among today's financial planners and their clients for a more protected approach to investing in equities."

The investment objective of The Lacerte Guardian Fund is to seek long-term growth from both equity appreciation and option proceeds. In addition to using protective puts, the Fund manages its positions using proprietary technical models and position economics. Unique value propositions of the Fund include:

--  Enhanced Performance Potential -- Volatility is positioned to be
    monetized.
--  Hedged Equity -- Portfolio is protected with put options, 100% of the
    time.
--  Simplicity -- The sophistication of a hedge fund strategy in a mutual
    fund.
--  No Leverage -- No margin leverage is employed.
--  No Shorting -- Stocks are not sold short.
    

"Financial planners and investors are seeking products that offer a more definitive approach to managing risk amid these volatile times," Wynn continued. "With the Guardian Fund, we believe we've developed a new large-cap strategy with the potential to offer the best of both worlds -- enhanced performance and reduced volatility, all in the simple and accessible structure of a mutual fund."
