Live Oak Health Sciences Fund

Investment Goal

Live Oak Health Sciences Fund seeks long-term growth by investing in common stocks of companies engaged in the research, development, production, or distribution of products or services related to health care, medicine, or the life sciences.

Investment Approach

Live Oak invests in "health science" companies, which may include pharmaceutical firms, designers and manufacturers of medical equipment and supplies, operators of hospitals and other health care services, and biotechnological researchers and developers. Live Oak focuses on the market leaders who are well positioned to take advantage of technological advances, innovative changes and demographic trends affecting the health sciences and biotechnology industries. Live Oak generally invests in large- and-mid capitalization companies, but can invest in companies of any size.

The manager identifies what he believes to be the most attractive areas within health science and then narrows his search to individual stocks, paying particular attention to companies who are well positioned to take advantage of technological advances, innovative changes and demographic trends affecting the health science industry. The manager’s stock selection process is based on a quantitative and qualitative analysis of individual companies’ fundamentals such as valuation, earnings growth potential, competitive advantages and the quality of corporate management. The fund generally invests in large- and medium-capitalization companies, but can invest in companies of any size. The manager invests with a long-term focus and seeks to keep the Fund’s portfolio turnover to a minimum relative to its peers.
