The performance data quoted represents past performance, and is no guarantee of future results. Your returns and the principal value of your investment will fluctuate so that your accumulation units or shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted above. Performance may reflect waivers or reimbursements of certain expenses. Absent these waivers or reimbursement arrangements, performance results would have been lower. Since Inception performance shown is cumulative for funds that have less than one year of performance history. For investments with exceptional performance, please note that performance fluctuates and currently may be lower than noted here.

STRATEGY

The investment seeks a favorable long-term total return, through both capital appreciation and investment income, primarily from income-producing equity securities. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its assets in equity securities. It will invest in securities which the fund's investment adviser believes have the potential for capital appreciation, dividend income, or both. The fund focuses on large-cap securities that the advisor believes to be attractively valued, show the potential to appreciate faster than the rest of the market and return cash to shareholders in the form of dividends, stock buy-backs or both.Read More

Investment Risk 
Standard Deviation (3-year annualized) measures an investment's past volatility, based on a sample. The higher the standard deviation, the higher the volatility. It is not a measure of performance and should not be considered relative to an investment's annual returns. Please note that past standard deviation is not a predictor of future volatility or risk.

R-Squared (3-year) measures how much of a portfolio’s performance can be explained by the returns from the overall market (or benchmark index). If a portfolio’s total return precisely matched that of the overall market or benchmark, its R squared would be 1.00. If a portfolio’s return bore no relationship to the market’s returns, its R squared would be 0.

Beta (3-year) measures the magnitude of a portfolio’s past share-price fluctuations in relation to the ups and downs of the overall market (or appropriate market index). If a security has a beta greater than 1, that security’s price can be expected to be more volatile than the market.

Sharpe Ratio (3 Yr) is a measure of the excess return per unit of risk in an investment asset. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the return. Excess return is the rate of return above and beyond the risk-free rate, which is usually the T-bill rate, or in excess of a market measure, such as an index fund.

STRATEGY

The investment seeks high current income and, when consistent with its primary objective, capital appreciation. The fund invests primarily in lower-rated, higher-yielding fixed-income securities, such as domestic and foreign corporate bonds, debentures, loan participations and assignments and notes, as well as convertible securities and preferred stocks. Under normal circumstances, it invests at least 80% of its assets in debt and other fixed-income securities rated lower than investment-grade (and their unrated equivalents) or other high-yielding debt securities.Read More

The investment seeks long-term growth of capital. The fund is a "fund of funds" that invests in Institutional Class shares of other funds of the Trust and potentially in other investment pools or investment products. It generally seeks to meet the fund's investment objective by investing: (1) approximately 100% of the fund's assets in equity underlying funds and (2) approximately 0% of the fund's assets in fixed-income underlying funds. It may deviate from these target allocations by up to ten percentage points depending upon current market conditions and outlook.Read More
