Catalyst Enhanced Income Strategy Fund


Fund Objective

The Fund’s objective is current income.

Reasons to Invest

The Catalyst Enhanced Income Strategy Fund seeks to generate current income via investments in often overlooked segments of non-agency residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS) and other fixed income asset-backed securities.

Non-Agency RMBS Focus
The Fund focuses on non-agency RMBS, although the Fund can invest where management finds value. The management team’s clearly-defined, niche focus is the core of the RMBS strategy’s success.

Seeks Best Risk/Return Opportunity
The Sub-Advisor selects securities that it believes offer the best risk/return opportunity based on its analyses of a variety of factors, including collateral quality, duration, structure, excess interest, credit support, potential for greater upside and less downside capture, liquidity, and market conditions. The Fund favors undervalued investments that have the potential for consistent returns in most interest rate environments.

Monthly Distribution
The Fund generally distributes to shareholders substantially all of its net income (for example, interest and dividends) monthly as well as substantially all of its net capital gains annually (that is, long-term capital gains from the sale of portfolio securities and short-term capital gains from both the sale of portfolio securities and option premium earned). However, all or a portion of a distribution may consist of a return of capital (i.e., from your original investment).

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. Investors in the Fund bear the risk that the Fund may not be successful in implementing its investment strategies. 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 is subject to concentration risk. 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. Bonds with longer maturities tend to be more sensitive to interest rates than bonds with shorter maturities. Lower-quality bonds, known as "high yield" or "junk" bonds, present greater risk than bonds of higher quality, including an increased risk of default. Credit risk is the risk that the issuer of a security will not be able to make principal and interest payments when due. These factors may affect the value of your investment.
