Investment Objective
WesMark Balanced Fund seeks to achieve capital appreciation and income. The portion of the portfolio devoted to each major asset class is: 30 – 70% in stocks; 30 – 70% in bonds; and 0 – 40% in money market securities.
 
Portfolio Management Strategy
  • Assets are allocated among stocks, bonds, and money market instruments in proportion to the managers' evaluation of expected return and risk;

  • Stocks can represent as much as 70% of assets during favorable market conditions;

  • Large-cap, small-cap, and foreign stocks are included in the portfolio; proportions in each sector are based on the managers' evaluation of potential returns;

  • Fund's bond holdings will be primarily U.S. government securities including notes, bonds, and mortgage securities; corporate bonds are permissible.

Risks
Bond prices are sensitive to changes in interest rates and a rise in interest rates can cause a decline in their prices. Investment in mutual funds involves risk, including possible loss of the principal amount invested.
