Risk Considerations

All investments involve some level of risk. Simply defined, risk is the possibility that you will lose money or not make money. Before you invest, please make sure you understand the risks that apply to the fund. As with any mutual fund, you could lose money over any period of time. Investments in the fund are not bank deposits and are not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Principal risk factors for the fund include:


Changes in interest rates may cause a decline in the market value of an investment. With bonds and other fixed income securities, a rise in interest rates typically causes a fall in values, while a fall in interest rates typically causes a rise in values.


The Fund may invest in certain derivatives that provide leveraged exposure. The Fund's investment in these instruments generally requires a small investment relative to the amount of investment exposure assumed. As a result, such investments may cause the Fund to lose more than the amount it invested in those instruments. The net asset value of the fund when employing leverage will be more volatile and sensitive to market movements. Leverage may involve the creation of a liability that requires the portfolio to pay interest.


The market value of a security may fluctuate, sometimes rapidly and unpredictably. These fluctuations, which are often referred to as "volatility," may cause a security to be worth less than it was worth at an earlier time. Market risk may affect a single issuer, industry, commodity, sector of the economy, or the market as a whole. Market risk is common to most investments – including stocks, bonds and commodities, and the mutual funds that invest in them. Bonds and other fixed income securities generally involve less market risk than stocks and commodities. The risk of bonds can vary significantly depending upon factors such as issuer and maturity. The bonds of some companies may be riskier than the stocks of others.


If the fund’s portfolio managers make poor investment decisions, it will negatively affect the fund’s performance.


Investing in money market funds subjects the fund to a pro rata portion of the money market fund’s fees and expenses.


The fund is considered a non-diversified investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the "1940 Act"), and is permitted to invest a greater proportion of its assets in the securities of a smaller number of issuers. As a result, the fund may be subject to greater volatility with respect to its portfolio securities than a fund that is diversified.


Active and frequent trading may lead to the realization and distribution to shareholders of higher short-term capital gains, which would increase their tax liability. Frequent trading also increases transaction costs, which could detract from the fund's performance.


Repurchase agreements could involve certain risks in the event of default or insolvency of the seller, including losses and possible delays or restrictions upon the fund’s ability to dispose of the underlying securities.


The fund may enter into a short position through a futures contract or swap agreement.


Gains or losses from speculative positions in a derivative may be much greater than the derivative's original cost. For example, potential losses from commodity-linked swap agreements and from writing uncovered call options are unlimited.


The value of a structured note will be influenced by time to maturity, level of supply and demand for the type of note, interest rate and market volatility, changes in the issuer’s credit rating, and economic, legal, political, or geographic events that affect the reference asset.


By investing in the Subsidiary, the fund is exposed indirectly to the risks associated with the Subsidiary’s investments. The derivatives and other investments held by the Subsidiary are generally similar to those that are permitted to be held by the fund and are subject to the same risks that apply to similar investments if held directly by the fund. There can be no assurance that the investment objective of the Subsidiary will be achieved. Changes in the laws of the United States and/or the Cayman Islands could result in the inability of the fund and/or the Subsidiary to continue to operate as it does currently and could adversely affect the fund.


Swap agreements involve the risk that the party with whom the fund has entered into the swap will default on its obligation to pay the fund and the risk that the fund will not be able to meet its obligations to pay the other party to the agreement.


In order to qualify as a Regulated Investment Company (a “RIC”) under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, the fund must meet certain requirements regarding the source of its income, the diversification of its assets and the distribution of its income. If the fund fails to qualify as a RIC, the fund will be subject to federal income tax on its net income at regular corporate rates (without reduction for distributions to shareholders). When distributed, that income also would be taxable to shareholders as an ordinary dividend to the extent attributable to the fund’s earnings and profits. If the fund were to fail to qualify as a RIC and became subject to federal income tax, shareholders of the fund would be subject to diminished returns.


Obligations of U.S. government agencies and authorities are supported by varying degrees of credit but generally are not backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government.


The lack of an active trading market may make it difficult to obtain an accurate price for a portfolio security. Many derivative instruments are not actively traded.

The fund seeks to achieve investment results that correspond generally to the risk and return patterns of managed futures funds.

In seeking to achieve its investment objective, the fund generally seeks to obtain exposure to both up and down price trends in four broad asset classes – equities, fixed income, commodities and currencies. The fund may take long and/or short positions in these asset classes, and dynamically adjusts its exposure to individual asset classes based on a trend-following approach. The fund may also aim to obtain exposure to other strategies commonly used by managed futures funds.
