Investment Philosophy

Established in 1982, in an era of stagnant economic growth and rampant inflation, Permanent Portfolio seeks to provide a sound structure and disciplined approach to asset allocation. The Fund was born in an environment where investors didn't know where to turn. Regardless of what an investor did, they were losing money. Harry Browne, one of the founders of the fund stated, "It's easy to think you know what the future holds, but the future invariably contradicts our expectations. Over and over again we are proven wrong when we bet too much on our expectations. Uncertainty is a fact of life." No one can accurately predict the future. Permanent Portfolio recognizes this limitation and seeks to invest a fixed "Target Percentage" of its assets to six carefully chosen, diverse and "non-correlated" investment categories. Such diversification in a single mutual fund seeks to mitigate risk regardless of the economic climate.

We expanded our options in 1987 to include Short-Term Treasury Portfolio, a full-service short-term U.S. Treasury security fund. In 1990, we added Aggressive Growth Portfolio to our family. This Portfolio is a diversified, multi-cap core, U.S. and foreign equity fund, which seeks high long-term appreciation. The following year we added Versatile Bond Portfolio. This Portfolio, under normal market conditions, invests at least 80% of its net assets in bonds, which may include debt securities of all types and of any maturity.

For thirty-four years, our Family of Funds has endeavored to provide sound investment opportunities. We are proud of that legacy, and will continue to help you pursue your financial independence.

The Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses must be considered carefully before investing.    The Prospectus contains this and other important information about the investment companies.   A hard copy may be obtained by calling (800) 531-5142.   Read the Prospectus carefully before investing.

S&P 500 Composite Stock Index is a market-capitalization weighted index of common stocks and also represents an unmanaged portfolio of common stocks. Dow Jones Industrial Average is an average of the stock prices of 30 large companies and represents a widely recognized unmanaged portfolio of common stocks. Returns shown for these indices reflect reinvested dividends as applicable, but do not reflect a deduction for fees, expenses, or taxes. You cannot invest directly in an index.

Permanent Portfolio invests in foreign securities, which will involve greater volatility, political, economic and currency risks, and differences in accounting methods. The fund will be affected by changes in the prices of gold, silver, Swiss franc assets and U.S. and foreign aggressive growth, real estate and natural resource stocks.

Aggressive Growth Portfolio's stocks may appreciate in value more rapidly than the stock market, but they are also subject to greater risk, especially during periods when the prices of U.S. stock market investments, in general, are declining. The Portfolio invests in smaller companies, which will involve additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility. The Portfolio also invests in foreign securities, which will involve greater volatility, political, economic and currency risks, and differences in accounting methods.

Short-Term Treasury Portfolio's investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise.  The risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities.   The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or any other government agency, does not guarantee an investment in the Short-Term Treasury Portfolio. Therefore, it is possible to lose money by investing in the Portfolio.

Versatile Bond Portfolio's investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. The risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investments in below investment grade bonds (also referred to as “high yield” or “junk” bonds) present a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. Investments in foreign securities involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks, and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater in emerging markets.  In addition, certain investments may be illiquid and may be difficult to purchase, sell, or value. 

Duration is a commonly used measure of the potential volatility of the price of a debt security or the aggregate market value of a portfolio of debt securities prior to maturity. Securities with a longer duration generally have more volatile prices than securities of comparable quality with a shorter duration. Correlation is a measure of the interdependence of two random variables. The Fund attempts to invest in "non-correlated" investment categories, but may experience correlation in certain market circumstances. Diversification does not assure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market.

Mutual fund investing involves risk; loss of principal is possible.
