STA Verdict



The investment seeks consistent repeatable returns across all market cycles. The fund is primarily a "fund of funds" and intends to invest in exchange-traded funds ("ETFs") and exchange-traded notes ("ETNs") that seek to track a diversified basket of global indices and investment sectors that meet certain selection criteria established by Partnervest Advisory Services, LLC (the "Sub-Advisor"). It also may invest, subject to the same selection criteria, in exchange-traded products that invest directly in commodities or currencies and that are registered only pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933 (collectively with ETFs and ETNs, "ETPs").
