  1. 1. Effective 12/2/13, The Fund will limit the market value of its total short positions to not more than 40% of its net assets at the time a short sale is entered into.
  2. 2. 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. Foreign investments may be volatile and involve additional expenses and special risks, including currency fluctuations, foreign taxes, regulatory and geopolitical risks. Value investing involves the risk that undervalued securities may not appreciate as anticipated. Short selling may increase volatility and risk of loss and is considered a speculative investment practice. Derivative instruments entail higher volatility and risk of loss compared to traditional stock or bond investments. Mid-sized company stock is typically more volatile than that of larger company stock. It may take a substantial period of time to realize a gain on an investment in a mid-sized company, if any gain is realized at all. Commodity-linked investments are speculative and have substantial risks, including the loss of principal. The Fund may also invest through a wholly-owned Cayman Islands subsidiary, which involves the risk that changes to the laws of the Cayman Islands could negatively affect the Fund. Diversification does not guarantee profit or protect against loss.
  3. 3. The Manager has contractually agreed to waive expenses in an amount equal to the management fee it receives from its Subsidiary for so long as the Fund invests in the Subsidiary. This waiver may not be terminated without the prior approval of the Fund's Board of Trustees.
  4. 4. The net expense ratio (where applicable) also takes into account contractual fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements without which performance would have been less. These undertakings may not be amended or withdrawn for one year from the date of the current prospectus, unless approved by the Board.
  5. 5. Access index definitions.
  6. 6. 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.
  7. 7. The Equity allocation in the Sector Allocation table is net of short positions.
  8. 8. Holdings are subject to change, are dollar-weighted based on assets, and may not reflect the use of leverage in the Fund. Market Cap breakdown is calculated using Morningstar's methodology and those capitalization standards may not align with those in the Fund’s prospectus.
  9. A. Class B shares convert to Class A shares 72 months after purchase; therefore "since inception", "10-year" and "15-year" returns for Class B (if applicable) use Class A performance for period after conversion.
  10. B. 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 7:00pm ET daily.
  11. C. The performance data quoted represents past performance, which does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance and expense ratios may be lower or higher than the data quoted. Fund returns include changes in share price and reinvested distributions and contingent deferred sales charges (CDSC) for years 1-6 of 5%, 4%, 3%, 3%, 2% and 1%, respectively, where with sales charge is indicated. Class B shares are subject to a 0.75% annual asset-backed sales charge. Returns do not consider capital gains or income taxes on an individual's investment.
  12. D. "Year to Date" returns are cumulative, not annualized, and do not reflect sales charges (if sales charges are applicable to the Fund). These returns would be lower if sales charges were taken into consideration. Short-term returns may not be indicative of longer-term performance, which should also be considered when making investment decisions.
  13. E. There is no guarantee of the payment of any dividend or other distributions at any level.
