Investment Objective
The RiverPark Focused Value Fund (“RiverPark Value” or the “Fund”) seeks long-term capital appreciation.
Investment Strategy
RiverPark Value seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing in large capitalization US equity
securities that the Fund's Investment Advisor believes are trading at substantial discounts to intrinsic
value. The Fund is a high conviction strategy and intends to be concentrated, with generally 20-25
The Fund’s investments will generally fall into two categories: high-quality businesses at reasonable
prices and businesses impacted by temporary challenges. The Fund seeks to invest in businesses
that are durable and predictable, run by shareholder-oriented management teams and where we believe
conservative projections of future performance can lead to expected returns in excess of 15% annually
over a 3-5 year holding period.
The Fund’s investment approach is bottom-up, fundamental, rigorous, research-intensive value-investing.
For each investment, Riverpark develops a quantitative framework for valuation and intends to make
purchases when investments are available at substantial discounts to a conservative assessment of value.
The Fund’s investment philosophy is that:
1. Markets are generally efficient, but occasionally inefficient.
2. As shareholders, the Fund invests in pieces of businesses, not pieces of paper.
3. Security pricing is very important in assessing investment merit.
4. Diversification is important, to a point.
Finally, a strong sell discipline is essential to the Fund's overall value approach. The Adviser will generally
have a specific price target in mind when entering a position, will monitor each position as the stock price
and our assessment of value evolve and will re-size or exit positions accordingly.

Mutual fund investing involves risk including possible loss of principal. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, international
investments may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting
principles or from social, economic or political instability in other nations. Bonds and bond funds are subject to interest rate risk and will decline in
value as interest rates rise. High yield bonds and non-investment grade securities involve greater risks of default or downgrade and are more
volatile than investment grade securities, due to the speculative nature of their investments. The Fund may invest in securities of companies that are
experiencing significant financial or business difficulties, including companies involved in bankruptcy or other reorganization and liquidation
proceedings. Although such investments may result in significant returns to the Fund, they involve a substantial degree of risk. There can be no
assurance that the Fund will achieve its stated objectives. The Fund is not diversified.
