Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Performance information for the institutional class shares prior to their inception is based on the performance of the retail class. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. To obtain current performance as of the most recent month-end, please call (800) 392-2673. Average annual total returns reflect the reinvestment of dividends, capital gains distributions, all fee waivers and expense reimbursements. If imposed, the fee would reduce the performance quoted. Investment return and principal value will vary, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

From December 20, 2018 until at least April 30, 2020, for the Fund’s Institutional Class, the Adviser has contractually agreed to waive the investment advisory and/or administration fees and/or to reimburse other expenses in the same proportion as the Retail Class waivers/ reimbursements in footnote 2 above and also to waive or reimburse Institutional Class-specific Other Expenses, but only to the extent that after applying the waiver/ reimbursements described in this sentence, the excess of the net Retail Class expense ratio over the net Institutional Class expense ratio does not exceed 25 basis points. If after applying the waivers/reimbursements discussed above, the excess of the net Retail Class expense ratio over the net Institutional Class expense ratio is less than 15 basis points, then the Adviser agrees to waive/reimburse such that the excess equals 15 basis points. This agreement may not be terminated or modified by the Adviser prior to April 30, 2020 without the approval of the Board of Trustees.
