ICON Equity Income Fund seeks modest capital appreciation and income.
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 of any market capitalization, including convertible and preferred securities, and in securities issued by dividend-paying companies. This strategy may not be changed unless Fund shareholders are given at least 60 days’ prior notice. The Fund generally invests in U.S. government agencies or government sponsored enterprises and investment-grade securities, although the Fund may invest up to 25% of its total assets in lower-rated securities.
There are risks involved with mutual fund investing, including the risk of loss of principal. There is no assurance that the investment process will consistently lead to successful results. Investing in fixed income securities such as bonds involves interest rate risk. When interest rates rise, the value of fixed income securities generally decreases. High-yield bonds involve a greater risk of default and price volatility than U.S. Government and other higher-quality bonds. An investment concentrated in sectors and industries may involve greater risk and volatility than a more diversified investment. There are risks associated with Small and Mid Cap investing such as less liquidity, limited product lines, and small market share.
