Portfolio Manager
David B. Ellwood, CFA®

Executive Vice President & Chief Investment Officer

David B. Ellwood, Executive Vice President and Chief Investment Officer, WesBanco Trust and Investment Services, is responsible for investment research and portfolio management. He is President and Portfolio Manager of the WesMark Funds, serving as lead portfolio manager for the WesMark Growth Fund and the WesMark Balanced Fund.

He has more than thirty-five years of experience in investment research and portfolio management.

A graduate of Wheeling Jesuit University, Mr. Ellwood attained the designation of Chartered Financial Analyst in 1988.

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;
  • Domestic large, mid and 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 include U.S. government securities including notes, bonds, and mortgage securities, and corporate bonds.
Risks
STOCK MARKET RISKS

The value of equity securities will rise and fall, and these fluctuations could be a sustained trend or a drastic movement. The portfolio of a Fund investing in equity securities will reflect changes in prices of individual stocks held in the Fund portfolio or general changes in stock valuations. Consequently, the Fund’s share price may decline. The Adviser attempts to manage market risk by limiting the amount the Fund invests in each company’s equity securities. However, diversification will not protect the Fund against widespread or prolonged declines in the stock market.

RISKS RELATED TO INVESTING FOR VALUE

Due to their relatively low valuations, value stocks are typically less volatile than growth stocks. For instance, the price of a value stock may experience a smaller increase on a forecast of higher earnings, a positive fundamental development, or positive market development. Further, value stocks tend to have higher dividends than growth stocks. This means they depend less on price changes for returns and may lag behind growth stocks in an up market.

INTEREST RATE RISKS

Prices of fixed-income securities rise and fall in response to changes in interest rates. Generally, when interest rates rise, prices of fixed-income securities fall. The opposite is true when interest rates decline. However, market factors, such as the lack of demand for particular fixed-income securities, may cause the price of certain fixed-income securities to fall while the prices of other securities rise or remain unchanged. Interest rate changes have a greater effect on the price of fixed-income securities with longer durations. Duration measures the price sensitivity of a fixed-income security to changes in interest rates.

Performance data quoted represents past performance which is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so when shares are redeemed, they may be worth more or less than their original cost. Mutual fund performance changes over time and current performance may be lower or higher than what is stated. To receive performance current to the most recent month-end, please call 1-800-864-1013. See the prospectus for other fees and expenses that apply to a continued investment in the funds.

Waivers/reimbursements are voluntary, and can be terminated at any time.

Total return represents the value of an investment after reinvesting all income and capital gains. 

Small company stocks are less liquid and subject to greater price volatility than large capitalization stocks. A portion of the income generated by the municipal and tax-free funds are subject to the federal alternative minimum tax and state and local taxes.

Bond prices are sensitive to changes in interest rates and a rise in interest rates can cause a decline in their prices.

The WesMark Balanced Fund, WesMark West Virginia Municipal Bond Fund, and WesMark Small Company Growth Fund are each the successor to a common trust fund managed by the Adviser. The quoted performance data includes performance for the corresponding common trust fund during periods before the funds' registration statements became effective (on August 1, 2000 for the Small Company Growth Fund; on March 12, 1997 for the West Virginia Municipal Bond Fund; and on March 24, 1998 for the Balanced Fund), as adjusted to reflect the funds' anticipated expenses. The common trust funds were not registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 ("1940 Act") and therefore were not subject to certain restrictions imposed by the 1940 Act. If the common trust funds had been registered under the 1940 Act, the performance may have been adversely affected.

These performance numbers are pre-tax. Regulations do not require us to provide after tax returns. For after tax returns, call 1-800-864-1013.
