This actively managed equity strategy seeks long-term capital growth by investing in domestic and foreign equity securities of companies focused on space exploration. What used to be a monopolistic and bureaucratic industry is being upended by both rocket and satellite cost declines. As a result of advancements within deep learning, mobile connectivity, sensors, 3D printing, and robotics, decades of ballooning costs have reversed trend and are beginning to decline, leading to a proliferation of satellite launches and rocket landings.
