Introduction of Yorktown Funds, A New Family of Sub-Advised Funds From API
David M. Basten, Managing Director of API Funds explained the rationale for this new fund family: "API is committed to working with financial advisors to help them create portfolios that meet a wide range of investor needs, goals and preferences. Over the years, advisors have expressed the need for highly focused funds that align with specific segments of the multiple-manager portfolios they create for their clients. API is introducing Yorktown Funds in response to this need."
The Yorktown Small Cap Fund, sub-advised by Vericimetry Advisors, Fund seeks to provide a specific asset class risk-reward exposure by investing in a diverse universe of marketable small-value stocks. Vericimetry Advisors is an academically based, quantitatively structured investment adviser providing capacity constrained asset class strategies. The company employs PhDs with many years of experience in tax efficient investment, portfolio designs and mathematical statistics.
The Yorktown Mid Cap Fund, sub-advised by William Blair, implements a core focus on value and growth companies. The Fund seeks to (1) invest in mid cap quality companies that are expected to have solid growth in earnings and (2) identify mid cap companies priced at discounts to their intrinsic values and with fundamentals that are solid or improving. William Blair is a global investment banking and asset management firm committed to building enduring relationships with clients and providing expertise and solutions to meet their evolving needs. An independent and employee-owned firm, William Blair is based in Chicago, with offices in 19 cities across five continents.
