Catalyst Insider Buying Fund


Fund Objective

The Fund’s objective is to achieve long-term capital appreciation.

Reasons to Invest

The Catalyst Insider Buying Fund seeks to offer investors an opportunity to invest in large capitalization U.S. companies that are experiencing significant insider buying.

The Fund only invests in companies where corporate insiders (CEO, CFO, directors, etc.) are purchasing their own company stock on the open market. We believe corporate insiders understand their own firm better than any outsider possibly could.

Potential Large-Cap Core Allocation
While we implement an alpha-driven investment approach by only investing in companies that insiders are purchasing, we focus on the largest, most well-known U.S. companies.

Disciplined Strategy
We use a proprietary, quantitative model to rank stocks based on insider activity. A qualitative review is performed on all stocks that meet our quantitative criteria.

There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective.

Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The value of the Fund may decrease in response to the activities and financial prospects of an individual security in the Fund’s portfolio. The performance of the Fund may be subject to substantial short term changes. To the extent the Fund invests in the stocks of smaller-sized companies, the Fund may be subject to additional risks, including the risk that earnings and prospects of these companies are more volatile than larger companies. Smaller-sized companies may experience higher failure rates than larger companies and normally have lower trading volume than larger companies. These factors may affect the value of your investment.
