The Fund has entered into brokerage/service arrangements with several brokers through commission recapture programs (e.g., a program where a portion of the brokerage commissions paid on portfolio transactions to a broker is returned directly to the Fund). These portions are then used to offset overall Fund expenses. There can be no assurance that these arrangements will continue in the future. For more information, please see the prospectus and summary prospectus.

Performance shown is for the period ended December 31, 2017. The performance data quoted above represents past performance, which is not a guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. View performance data current to the Fund’s most recent month end.

During part of the period cited the Adviser assumed certain expenses and/or waived a portion of its fee. Total return would have been lower absent such assumptions or fee waivers. The Adviser may have the ability to recoup certain of the waived fees and assumed expenses in the future.
