Investment Overview

The Gotham Index Plus Fund (the "Fund") was created as an investment that seeks to more closely track an index than purely active funds by combining an index investment with an active long/short overlay. The Fund generally seeks 100% net long exposure by being 190% long vs. 90% short (100% index + active long/short overlay). The Fund seeks to outperform the S&P 500 over most annual periods. The Fund is not a passive index fund. Joel Greenblatt and Robert Goldstein are the Managing Principals and Co-CIOs of Gotham Asset Management, LLC, the Advisor to this Fund.

Investment Strategy & Process

For each $100 invested in Gotham Index Plus, we start with $100 of U.S. stocks that seek to track the S&P 500® Index. Next, we select long and short positions (from a large cap investment universe) that we believe are the cheapest and most expensive, respectively, relative to our assessment of value. Finally, we net positions that appear in both the index portion and the actively managed long/short overlay, with the result being a portfolio with an overall exposure of approximately $190 long and $90 short.

For the active long/short overlay, the Co-CIOs and their team of equity analysts employ Gotham’s proprietary analytical framework to evaluate stocks within the coverage universe on measures of absolute and relative value.

The Fund also employs risk management, which follows a disciplined proprietary process limiting concentration in any one company, industry or sector. In addition, gross and net exposures are managed daily to remain within carefully defined ranges.
