Your fund is most likely a private fund that is not available to the public, which is why there is no symbol listed.

The following definition on beta is taken from the book "Charles Schwab's Guide to Financial Independence"...

"Beta is the ratio between the volatility of a stock or mutual fund's price and the volatility of the stock market in general. If the beta is greater than 1, that stock is expected to rise or fall more than the market. Below 1 and the stock typically moves up and down less than the market as a whole. The S&P 500 Index has a beta of 1. Conservative investors typically consider investing in stocks that have a beta lower than 1."

Hope this helps.
