Our Funds


A Daily net asset value and dollar change of the fund is as of the previous business day's closing. Fund net asset values are updated at approximately 7 p.m. ET daily.
1 Special Risks: Fixed income investing entails credit and interest rate risks. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall, and the Fund's share prices can fall. May invest up to 35% in below-investment-grade ("high yield" or "junk") bonds, which are more at risk of default and are subject to liquidity risk. Asset-backed securities are subject to prepayment risk. Mortgage-backed securities are subject to prepayment risk. Mortgage bonds are susceptible to risks such as default and prepayment of principal and are taxable at the state and federal levels. The timely payment of interest and principal on U.S. Treasury securities is guaranteed by the U.S. Government and interest in those securities is only taxable at the federal level. The government guarantee does not eliminate market risk, however, because it does not cover any decrease in the market value of U.S. treasury securities. It is important to note that longer maturity bonds have greater volatility and risk when compared to shorter maturity bonds. Derivative instruments whose values depend on the performance of an underlying security, asset, interest rate, index or currency, entail potentially higher volatility and risk of loss compared to traditional stock or bond investments. Foreign investments may be volatile and involve additional expenses and special risks, including currency fluctuations, foreign taxes and geopolitical risks. Emerging and developing market investments may be especially volatile.
2 Special Risks: Senior loans are typically lower-rated and may be illiquid investments (which may not have a ready market.) The Fund may invest without limit in lower-rated securities. The Fund may invest a variable amount in debt rated below "B." The Fund may invest 25% or more of its assets in securities issued by companies in the financial services sector which may be susceptible to economic and regulatory events, and increased volatility. Foreign investments may be volatile and involve additional expenses and special risks, including currency fluctuations, foreign taxes and geopolitical risks. Emerging and developing market investments may be especially volatile. Fixed income investing entails credit and interest rate risks. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall, and the Fund's share prices can fall. Derivative instruments whose values depend on the performance of an underlying security, asset, interest rate, index or currency, entail potentially higher volatility and risk of loss compared to traditional stock or bond investments. The Fund may use leverage (borrowing) which involves transaction and interest costs on amounts the Fund borrows, which may reduce performance.
3 Special Risks Foreign investments may be volatile and involve additional expenses and special risks, including currency fluctuations, foreign taxes and geopolitical risks. Emerging and developing market investments may be especially volatile. Due to smaller economies, less developed capital markets and lower investor protection standards, these risks are magnified in frontier markets. The Fund may invest a significant portion of assets in a particular region, industry or sector, which may increase volatility and exposure to risks associated with that particular region, industry or sector. Small and mid-sized company stock is typically more volatile than that of larger, more established businesses, and these stocks tend to be more sensitive to changes in earnings expectations. It may take a substantial period of time to realize a gain on an investment in a small or mid-sized company, if any gain is realized at all. Investments in securities of growth companies may be volatile.
4 This is a new Fund with a limited operating history and an inception date of 6/30/14.
5 Special Risks: Foreign investments may be volatile and involve additional expenses and special risks, including currency fluctuations, foreign taxes and geopolitical risks. Emerging and developing market investments may be especially volatile. Due to the recent global economic crisis that caused financial difficulties for many European Union countries, Eurozone investments may be subject to volatility and liquidity issues. Investments in securities of growth companies may be volatile. Small and mid-sized company stock is typically more volatile than that of larger, more established businesses, as these stocks tend to be more sensitive to changes in earnings expectations. It may take a substantial period of time to realize a gain on an investment in a small or mid-sized company, if any gain is realized at all. The Fund may invest a significant portion of assets in a particular region, which may increase volatility and exposure to risks associated with that particular region.
6 Special Risks Investing in MLPs involves additional risks as compared to the risks of investing in common stock, including risks related to cash flow, dilution and voting rights. The Fund's investments are concentrated in the energy infrastructure industry with an emphasis on securities issued by MLPs, which may increase volatility. Energy infrastructure companies are subject to risks specific to the industry such as fluctuations in commodity prices, reduced volumes of natural gas or other energy commodities, environmental hazards, changes in the macroeconomic or the regulatory environment or extreme weather. MLPs may trade less frequently than larger companies due to their smaller capitalizations which may result in erratic price movement or difficulty in buying or selling. MLPs are subject to significant regulation and may be adversely affected by changes in the regulatory environment including the risk that an MLP could lose its tax status as a partnership. Additional management fees and other expenses are associated with investing in MLP funds. The Fund is subject to certain MLP tax risks. An investment in the Fund does not offer the same tax benefits of a direct investment in an MLP. The Fund is organized as a Subchapter "C" Corporation and is subject to U.S. federal income tax on taxable income at the corporate tax rate (currently as high as 35%) as well as state and local income taxes. The potential benefit of investing in MLPs generally is their treatment as partnerships for federal income tax. Many MLPs accrue deferred income taxes for future tax liabilities associated with the portion of MLP distributions considered to be a tax-deferred return of capital and for any net operating gains as well as capital appreciation on its investments. This deferred tax liability is reflected in the daily NAV and as a result a MLP fund's after-tax performance could differ significantly from the underlying assets even if the pre-tax performance is closely tracked. The Fund is classified as a "non-diversified" fund and may invest a greater portion of its assets in the securities of a single issuer.

Diversification does not guarantee profit or protect against loss.
