Important Risk Information

ETFs and mutual funds are subject to investment advisory and other expenses, which will be indirectly paid by the Fund. As a result, the cost of investing in the Fund will be higher than the cost of investing directly in ETFs and mutual funds and also may be higher than other mutual funds that invest directly in common stocks and other securities.
The advisor’s dependence on its asset allocation and risk management strategies and judgments about the attractiveness, value and potential appreciation of particular securities and derivatives may prove to be incorrect and may not produce the desired results.
