Special Risks: Investments in mining and metal industry companies may be speculative and may be subject to 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. Large sector holdings may expose investors to greater volatility and special risks associated with that sector. Investments in securities of growth companies may be volatile. 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. 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 invests in Gold ETFs, which involve additional fees and risks. 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. The Fund may also invest through a wholly-owned Cayman Islands subsidiary, which is subject to the laws of the Cayman Islands and involves the risk that changes to those laws could negatively affect the Fund.
Holdings are subject to change, and are dollar weighted based on total net assets. Negative weightings may result from the use of leverage. Leverage involves the use of various financial instruments or borrowed capital in an attempt to increase investment return. Leverage risks include potential for higher volatility, greater decline of the fund's net asset value and fluctuations of dividends and distributions paid by the fund.
Class I shares are only offered to eligible institutional investors that make a minimum initial investment of $5 million or more and to retirement plan service provider platforms. The minimum account balance for class I shares is $2.5 million. Class I shares are sold at net asset value without a sales charge. Please see Fund prospectuses for additional information.
Beta (3-yr): is a measure of a fund's sensitivity to market movements. The beta of a market is 1.00 by definition.

Alpha (3-yr): measures the difference between a fund's actual and expected returns, based on beta, and is generally used as a measure of a manager's added value over a passive strategy.

R-squared (3-yr): is a measurement of how closely a portfolio's performance correlates with the performance of a benchmark index, and thus a measurement of what portion of its performance can be explained by the performance of the index. Values for R-squared range from 0 to 100, where 0 indicates no correlation and 100 indicates perfect correlation.  

Sharpe Ratio (3-yr): is a risk-adjusted measure that measures reward per unit of risk. the higher the Sharpe Ratio, the better. The numerator is the difference between the portfolio's annualized return and the annualized return of a risk-free instrument, the denominator is the portfolio's annualized standard deviation (population).

Standard Deviation (3-yr): is a statistical measure of the degree to which the performance of a portfolio varies from its average performance during a specified period. the higher the standard deviation, the greater the volatility of the portfolio's performance returns relative to its average return.

Alpha, Beta and R-Squared were measured against the fund's benchmark: . Access index definitions.
