I have a third party check I would like to deposit into my account, how do I do that?

Sorry, no third party checks. All purchases must be made in U.S. dollars and checks must be drawn on U.S. financial institutions from an account bearing the same name as the investor in the fund. No cash, credit cards, or third party checks will be accepted.

Can I set up automatic deposits into my account?

You may make regular investments in the Fund with an Automatic Investment Plan by completing the appropriate section of the account application and attaching a voided personal check. Investments may be made monthly to allow dollar-cost averaging by automatically deducting $100 or more from your bank checking account. You may change the amount of your monthly purchase at any time. If an Automatic Investment Plan purchase is rejected by your bank, your shareholder account will be charged a fee to defray bank charges.
