Investment Objective: The primary investment objective of The CFAL Growth Fund, Ltd. (‘the Fund’) is to provide long-term capital appreciation. The Fund is ideal for individual and institutional investors who can accept the volatility of the equity markets for the opportunity of higher potential returns. Investment Strategy: The Fund seeks to meet its objective by investing in a diversified selection of equity securities, including common shares with high prospects for above average market returns. The Fund also invests in preferred shares, Bahamas Government bonds, investment grade corporate bonds, and short-term securities. December 2010 Review: The CFAL Growth Fund, Ltd. ended the last quarter of 2010 with a positive return of 0.45 percent, net of fees, to a Net Asset Value per share of $10.97. The Fund outperformed its benchmark, the BISX All Share Index, by 162 basis points or 1.62 percentage points. The BISX All Share index posted a negative return of 1.17 percent during the quarter. There were no major asset allocation changes to The Fund’s portfolio this quarter as the Fixed Income exposure increased marginally by 0.6 percentage points and Short-Term securities held decreased to 5.9 percent of the portfolio compared to 7 percent last period. The Fund’s asset class performance numbers were positive this quarter as Fixed Income securities posted gains of 1.85 percent and the Equity segment rose by 0.42 percent. The Fund’s equity portfolio experienced drags in performance from AML Foods (-3.96%), Bahamas Waste Limited (-14.29%), FINCO (-14.94%), FirstCaribbean Bank (-3.59%), Cable Bahamas Limited (2.14%) and Colina Holdings Limited (-0.80%). Positive performers included J.S. Johnson (+0.61%), FOCOL (+1.29%), Commonwealth Bank (+7.28%), FamGuard Corp. (+0.99%) and ICD Utilities (32.38%). Even as we experience uncertainty in the economic environment, the strategic asset allocation strategy of the CFAL Growth Fund, Ltd remains intact. We are committed to a long-term perspective of the economy as we select those investments that have the potential to maximize return while diversifying portfolio risk.
