    Why Invest

    • A balanced portfolio of high-quality equity and fixed-income securities
    • Access to institutionally-oriented portfolio management teams 
    • Focus on participating in equity market upside while dampening downside risk 

    Investment Approach

    The Hennessy Equity and Income Fund's portfolio consists of up to 70% large-cap, value-oriented stocks and the remainder in high-quality fixed-income securities. The Portfolio Managers take a long-term perspective and maintain a primary focus on downside protection.

    The Equity Portfolio Management Team employs a research-driven approach, utilizing a proprietary Balance Sheet Optimization model. They run a focused, high-conviction portfolio, and maintain low turnover by selecting stocks with the following characteristics:

    - High return on capital

    - Consistent free cash flow generation

    - Earnings yield

    - Attractive and conservative valuations

    The Fixed Income Portfolio Management Team utilizes a rigorous, bottom-up selection process built upon continuous analysis. They believe that duration management is critical to buffering interest rate sensitivity and that sector allocation is an important factor in performance results. They seek to include fixed income securities with the following characteristics:

    - Low duration, intermediate-term

    - Primarily Treasuries, agencies, and high-quality corporate obligations

    - Average Credit Quality – A by Moody’s

    - Select non-investment grade obligations to enhance yield

    Portfolio Managers

    The Fund is sub-advised by The London Company (equity allocation) and FCI Advisors (fixed income allocation).

    The London Company, located in Richmond, VA, is a registered investment advisor providing equity portfolio management services to a diverse mix of corporations, trusts, foundations, endowments, pensions, banks, individuals, and mutual fund accounts since 1994.

    FCI Advisors, located in Kansas City, MO, is an independently owned investment adviser and has been providing investment advisory services since 1966.

    “We believe markets are much less efficient at assessing risk than reward.”

    Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted.

    Morningstar Proprietary Ratings reflect risk-adjusted performance as of 3/31/21. The Morningstar Rating for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. Institutional Class (HEIIX) received 3 stars for the three-year, 3 stars for the five-year and 4 stars for the ten-year periods ended 3/31/21 / among 641, 574 and 412 Allocation--50% to 70% Equity Funds, respectively. Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in distribution percentage.

    Each Morningstar category average represents a universe of funds with similar objectives. The Morningstar Style Box reveals the fund's investment style as of 3/31/21.

    The performance shown for the Investor Class / HEIFX for periods prior to 9/24/01 represents the performance of Institutional Class shares of the Fund and includes expenses that are not applicable to and are lower than those of Investor Class shares.

    The performance shown for periods prior to 10/26/12 is that of the predecessor FBR Fund.

    The 60/40 Blended Balanced Index and the 70/30 Blended Balanced Index comprise a mix of common stocks and bonds, with 60% or 70%, respectively, common stocks represented by the S&P 500® Index and 40% or 30%, respectively, bonds represented by the Bloomberg Barclays Intermediate U.S. Government/Credit Index.

    The S&P 500® Index is an unmanaged index commonly used to measure the performance of U.S. stocks. The Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Intermediate Gov/Credit Index is an unmanaged index commonly used to measure the performance of intermediate-term U.S. bonds. One cannot invest directly in an index.

    Distribution Rate reflects the investment income per share during the last 12 months divided by the share price at the end of the period, expressed as an annual percentage rate. It is calculated by annualizing the Fund’s most recent distribution. The annualized dividend yield may not reflect the actual yield an investor would receive. 30-Day SEC Yield is a standardized yield computed by dividing the net investment income per share earned during the past 30-day period by the share price at the end of the period, expressed as an annual percentage rate. The 30-Day SEC Yield should be regarded as an estimate of the Fund’s rate of recent investment income, and it may not equal the Fund’s actual distribution rate. Past yields are no guarantee of future yields.

    Fund holdings and sector allocations are subject to change and should not be considered a recommendation to buy or sell any security.

    Credit Quality Bond Ratings typically range from AAA/Aaa (highest) to D (lowest). The credit ratings shown are based on each portfolio security’s rating as generally provided by Moody’s. If a Moody’s rating is not available, then the rating is provided by Standard and Poor’s (“S&P”), a Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization (“NRSRO”). The credit quality of the investments in the Fund’s portfolio does not apply to the stability or safety of the Fund.
