With the current U.S. bull market in its later stages, valuations are stretched in both equity and fixed income markets. So where can investors go to both potentially reduce risk and pursue attractive returns?

GuideStone believes alternative investments offer investors a variety of benefits which cannot be found in traditional asset classes, which is why we are expanding our fund family.

With its lower-volatility approach and an orientation that pursues absolute return, the GuideStone Strategic Alternatives Fund seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation by delivering consistently positive returns in all market environments with both lower volatility than and low correlation to traditional equity and fixed-income indices.



Important Information:

There can be no guarantee that any strategy (risk management or otherwise) will be successful. All investing involves risk, including potential loss of principal. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.

The Fund's investment activities involve a significant degree of risk, and the Fund is suitable only for investors with a high tolerance for investment risk, including the possible loss of principal. The Fund may invest in commodities, futures, forwards, derivatives, (options and swaps) and other derivatives based on fixed income securities which are subject to credit and interest rate risk.

Foreign currencies and emerging markets involve certain risks such as currency volatility, political and social instability and reduced market liquidity. Short sales by a Fund theoretically involve unlimited loss potential since the market price of securities sold short may continuously increase. Leverage may increase the risk of loss and cause fluctuations in the market value of the Fund’s portfolio to have disproportionately large effects or cause the NAV of the Fund generally to decline faster than it would otherwise. To the extent that the investment advisor misjudges current market conditions, the Fund's volatility may be amplified by its use of derivatives and its ability to anticipate price movements in relevant markets, underlying derivative instruments and futures contracts. The Fund’s currency investment strategy may be impacted by currency exchange rates, which can fluctuate significantly over short or extended periods of time. These changes may be caused by governmental or political factors that affect the value of what the Fund owns and its share price. The Fund may experience high portfolio turnover, which may result in higher costs and capital gains. The Fund is a recently formed mutual fund and has a limited history of operations. There can be no assurances that its objective will be met.
