Investment Objective: To seek long-term capital appreciation with an emphasis on capital preservation. 
Investment Strategy: The Fund employs an allocation strategy, moving between equities, fixed income and cash depending on market factors. Equity investments are selected from an index of companies the investment team identifies as Knowledge Leaders.
A Knowledge Leaders Strategy: Gavekal’s strategy seeks to transform the Knowledge Effect into portfolio alpha. The investment process aims to capture this market inefficiency using a proprietary methodology which capitalizes corporate knowledge investments, measures firm performance on a knowledge-adjusted basis, and selects investments in Knowledge Leader companies on the basis of knowledge intensity.

Please consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing. The prospectus or summary prospectus that contains this and other information about the Fund, is available by calling 888.998.9890 and should be read carefully.

The value of the securities held by the Fund will change due to general market and economic conditions and industry perceptions. Investments in non-US issuers may involve unique risks. Currency fluctuation, adverse political, economic or social developments could undermine the value of the Fund’s investments. The securities of mid-cap companies may be subject to more abrupt or erratic market movements and may have lower trading volumes. Many of the risks with respect to foreign investments are more pronounced for investments in issuers in developing or emerging market countries. An investment in a fund that is less diversified across countries or geographic regions is generally riskier than an investment in a more geographically diversified fund.

Portfolio composition will change due to ongoing management of the Fund. References to specific securities or sectors should not be construed as recommendations by the Fund, its Advisor or Distributor.  The blended benchmark is comprised 60% of the MSCI All Country World Index and 40% of the Barclays US Treasury Bond Index.  Percentages are allocated to equity invested.
