Fund Objectives and Strategy
The Sit Minnesota Tax-Free Income Fund seeks current income that is exempt from federal regular income tax and Minnesota regular personal income tax consistent with preservation of capital. To achieve its objective, the Fund invests primarily in municipal securities that generate interest income that is exempt from federal regular income tax and Minnesota regular personal income tax. In selecting securities for the Fund, the Adviser seeks securities providing high current tax-exempt income. In making purchase and sales decisions for the Fund, the Adviser considers their economic outlook and interest rate forecast, as well as their evaluation of a security’s structure, credit quality, yield, maturity, and liquidity.
The Sit Mutual Funds’ investment adviser is Sit Investment Associates, Inc. It is an employee-owned firm founded in 1981 in Minneapolis, Minnesota and currently manages $14.0 billion (as of 12/31/17). The firm’s sole business is investment management.
