Other Redemption Policies
Frequent purchases and redemptions of Fund shares by a shareholder may harm other Fund shareholders by interfering with the efficient management of the Fund’s portfolio, increasing brokerage and administrative costs, and potentially diluting the value of their shares. Accordingly, the Fund does not accommodate frequent purchases and redemptions of Fund shares by Fund shareholders and the Fund’s Board of Trustees has adopted policies and procedures that discourage frequent purchases and redemptions of Fund shares by:
- Reserving the right to reject any purchase order for any reason or no reason, including purchase orders from potential investors that OCM believes might engage in frequent purchases and redemptions of Fund shares, based on any unusual trading activity by such investor and/or such investor’s trading history; and
- Imposing a 1.50% redemption fee on redemptions occurring within 3 months of the share purchase. The redemption fee does not apply to (1) shares purchased through reinvested distributions (dividends and capital gains), (2) shares held in retirement plans (other than IRAs), or (3) shares redeemed through SWPs, but otherwise applies to all investors in the Fund, including those that invest through “omnibus accounts” at intermediaries such as investment advisers, broker-dealers and third-party administrators.
While the Fund attempts to deter market timing, there is no assurance that it will be able to identify and eliminate all market timers. For example, omnibus accounts include multiple shareholders. Omnibus accounts typically provide the Fund with a net purchase or redemption request on any given day where purchasers of Fund shares and redeemers of Fund shares are netted against one another and the identity of individual purchasers and redeemers whose orders are aggregated are not known by the Fund. The netting effect often makes it more difficult to apply redemption fees, and there can be no assurance that the Fund will be able to apply the fee to such accounts in an effective manner. If inappropriate trading is detected in an omnibus account registered in the name of a nominee, financial intermediary or plan sponsor, the Fund may request that the nominee, financial intermediary or plan sponsor take action to prevent the particular investor or investors from engaging in frequent or short-term trading. If inappropriate trading recurs, the Fund may refuse all future purchases from the plan, including those of plan participants not involved in the inappropriate activity.
