Each top 20 security held in the portfolio shall at the time of purchase have a weighting of between 3% and 7% of the Fund's Net Asset Value and will continue to be held in the portfolio until it is reconstituted. The portfolio will be reconstituted annually on December 31st of each year to include the then top 20 highest yielding securities of the NASDAQ 100.

The Fund employs a proprietary investment strategy, Strathbridge Selective Overwriting ("SSO"), to enhance the income generated by the portfolio and to reduce volatility. The Fund intends to strategically write covered call options from time to time, in respect of not more than 33 percent of the securities in its portfolio. In addition, the Fund may write covered put options (up to a maximum of 10 percent of the Fund's net asset value) in respect of securities in which it is permitted to invest.
