Catalyst/Stone Beach Income Opportunity Fund


Fund Objective

The Fund’s investment objective is current income.

Reasons to Invest

The Catalyst/Stone Beach Income Opportunity Fund seeks high current income and capital appreciation from a portfolio of mortgage-backed securities (“MBS”) while actively hedging to minimize declines during adverse market conditions.

High Current Income
The Fund seeks to deliver monthly dividend income derived from its investments in MBS, including agency and non-agency residential MBS, commercial MBS (“CMBS”) and other related fixed-income instruments.

Active Management
The Fund is actively managed to seek the best opportunities in Residential and Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities and Asset-Backed Securities. A relative value approach is used in an attempt to generate alpha with a mandate of generating positive returns that are not dependent on the direction of interest rates.

Hedged Strategy
The Fund employs a hedging strategy utilizing derivative instruments, including options, futures, swaps and other synthetic mortgage-related swaps.

There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective.

Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The value of the Fund may decrease in response to the activities and financial prospects of an individual security in the Fund’s portfolio. The Fund is non-diversified and may invest a greater percentage of its assets in a particular issue and may own fewer securities than other mutual funds. The Fund may invest in lower-quality, non-investment grade bonds. Non-investment grade corporate bonds are those rated Ba or lower by Moody's or BB or lower by S&P (also known as "junk" bonds). Lower-quality debt securities involve greater risk of default or price changes due to changes in the credit quality of the issuer. When the Fund invests in asset-backed securities and mortgage-backed securities, the Fund is subject to the risk that, if the underlying borrowers fail to pay interest or repay principal, the assets backing these securities may not be sufficient to support payments on the securities. Interest rate risk is the risk that bond prices overall, including the prices of securities held by the Fund, will decline over short or even long periods of time due to rising interest rates. If a security sold short or other instrument increases in price, the Fund may have to cover its short position at a higher price than the short sale price, resulting in a loss. The use of derivative instruments involves risks different from, or possibly greater than, the risks associated with investing directly in securities and other traditional investments. These factors may affect the value of your investment.
