Huntington Funds this week announced the debut of its Huntington Disciplined Equity Fund (Class A: HDEAX and Trust Class: HDETX) which purports to offer investors a fund that delivers solid, stable annual returns with lower volatility than mutual funds.

"Preparing for the unexpected requires discipline, and at Huntington Funds, our expert team is always looking for ways to help investors meet their long-term investment objectives," Randy Bateman, Huntington’s chief investment officer, said in a statement. "The fund is designed for investors who may be concerned about their ability to achieve their investment goals if there is a sudden drop in the market."

Company officials said the Huntington Disciplined Equity Fund invests in high quality, dividend-paying stocks in the S&P 100 Index. The index includes stocks of the 100 largest and most well-respected companies in the U.S. diversified across many industry groups. The fund then mitigates risks and generates additional cash through two option strategies known as puts and calls.

The Huntington Disciplined Equity Fund is Huntington Funds’ 26th mutual fund. The Fund complements the entire fund family that includes equity, fixed-income, money market and asset allocation funds, all of which offer a broad range of diversification to enhance overall investment returns.
