Important Risk Information

There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective.

Mutual Funds involve risk including the possible loss of principal.  The Fund is a new mutual fund and has a limited history of operations for investors to evaluate. If the market price of the underlying common stock increases above the conversion price on a convertible security, the price of the convertible security will increase.  Convertible bonds are subject to risks associated with both debt securities and equity securities. The Fund is exposed to credit risks that the counterparty may be unwilling or unable to make timely payments or otherwise to meet its contractual obligations. The derivative instruments in which the Fund may invest either directly or through an underlying fund, may be more volatile than other instruments. In general, the price of a fixed income security falls when interest rates rise. Leveraging generally exaggerates the effect on NAV of any increase or decrease in the market value of the Fund’s portfolio securities.  The Fund’s investments in illiquid securities may reduce the returns of the Fund because it may be unable to sell the illiquid securities at an advantageous time or price. By writing call options, the Fund is subject to the risk of counterparty default, as well as the potential for unlimited loss. Increased portfolio turnover may result in higher brokerage commissions, dealer mark-ups and other transaction costs and may result in taxable capital gains. If any private placement security held by the Fund should become illiquid, the value of the security may be reduced and a sale of the security may be more difficult. U.S. and international markets have experienced significant periods of volatility in recent years and months due to a number of economic, political and global macro factors.

The securities of small- and mid-capitalization companies may be more volatile and less liquid than those of large-capitalization companies.  Swaps are a type of derivative. Swap agreements involve the risk that the party with which the Fund has entered into the swap will default on its obligation to pay the Fund and the risk that the Fund will not be able to meet its obligations to pay the other party to the agreement. The federal income tax treatment of convertible securities or other securities in which the Fund may invest may not be clear or may be subject to recharacterization by the Internal Revenue Service.  Investments in the securities of other investment companies, including ETFs, may involve duplication of advisory fees and certain other expenses. Additionally, if the investment company or ETF fails to achieve its investment objective, the value of the Fund’s investment will decline, adversely affecting the Fund’s performance.
