Catalyst Enhanced Core Fund


Fund Objective

The Fund’s objective is long-term capital appreciation.

Reasons to Invest

The Catalyst Enhanced Core Fund implements a distinct “index plus” strategy that provides investors exposure to equities, fixed income, and IPOs.

Through its investment in Index Futures, the Fund attempts to provide a return (before fees and expenses) that approximates the performance of the S&P 500 Index.

The fixed income securities in which the Fund may invest, directly or indirectly, includes corporate bonds; convertible bonds; municipal securities; U.S. Government securities; and preferred debt securities. The Fund may invest, indirectly through mutual funds and ETFs, in agency and-non agency residential mortgage backed securities (“RMBS”) and commercial mortgage backed securities (“CMBS”). The Fund may invest in securities of any credit quality and without regard to maturity or duration. Fundamental analysis is used to evaluate fixed income investments that the managers believe provide the best alpha-generating opportunities for the Fund.

The Fund also actively engages in short-term trading of IPOs. The Fund attempts to purchase the securities directly from underwriters prior to trading on the public exchanges and sell the securities once the securities commence trading. The managers evaluate and select IPOs for the Fund’s portfolio based on the pedigree of the investment banks underwriting the IPO, the size of the IPO, the business model of the company, and the financial performance of the company prior to the IPO.

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. When the Fund invests in fixed income securities, the value of your investment in the Fund will fluctuate with changes in interest rates. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities owned by the Fund. Investments in futures involve leverage, which means a small percentage of assets invested in futures can have a disproportionately large impact on the Fund. This risk could cause the Fund to lose more than the principal amount invested. The performance of the Fund may be subject to substantial short-term changes. There are risks associated with investing in IPOs, including extreme volatility, speculative trading and limited liquidity. These factors may affect the value of your investment.
