Foxby Corp. (ticker: FXBY) is a non-diversified, closed end management investment company. The Fund’s non-fundamental investment objective is total return which it may seek from growth of capital and from income in any security type and in any industry sector. In seeking its objective, the Fund exercises a flexible strategy in the selection of securities and is not limited by the issuer’s location, size, or market capitalization. The Fund may invest in equity and fixed income securities of new and seasoned U.S. and foreign issuers, including securities convertible into common stock, debt securities, futures, options, derivatives, and other instruments. The Fund also may employ aggressive and speculative investment techniques, such as selling securities short and borrowing money for investment purposes, a practice known as “leveraging,” and may invest defensively in short term, liquid, high grade securities and money market instruments. There is no assurance the Fund will achieve its investment objective.
