Catalyst Hedged Commodity Strategy Fund


Fund Objective

The Fund’s objective is capital appreciation uncorrelated to global equity or commodity markets

Reasons to Invest

The Catalyst Hedged Commodity Strategy Fund seeks to provide positive returns in most market conditions with low correlation to the global equity and commodity markets by investing in dynamic option strategies on physical commodity futures contracts.

Investment Strategy
The Fund seeks absolute positive returns regardless of commodity direction with a lower than average standard deviation compared to commodity benchmarks. The strategy involves trading option spreads and focusing on trades based on volatility, seasonality, technical analysis and price, with emphasis on volatility changes. Positions are focused as reactions to volatility and pricing, rather than attempting to forecast where the markets will be in the future.

The Fund seeks returns that are uncorrelated to equity and commodity markets through a strategy that profits from changes in options volatility, options volatility arbitrage, price and options volatility mean reversion and options time decay.

Risk Management
In an attempt to provide consistent returns and mitigate the extent of losses, the Fund employs strict risk management procedures to adjust portfolio exposure as necessitated by changing market conditions. Risk is viewed on an individual commodity basis as well as the overall portfolio. Spread trades are used, helping to limit risk and support the Funds overall lower standard deviation goal.

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

Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The Fund will invest a percentage of its assets in derivatives, such as futures and options contracts. The use of such derivatives and the resulting high portfolio turnover may expose the Fund to additional risks that it would not be subject to if it invested directly in the securities and commodities underlying those derivatives. The Fund may experience losses that exceed those experienced by funds that do not use futures contracts, options and hedging strategies. Investing in commodities markets may subject the Fund to greater volatility than investments in traditional securities. Changes in interest rates and the liquidity of certain investments could affect the Fund’s overall performance. The Fund is non-diversified and as a result, changes in the value of a single security may have significant effect on the Fund’s value. Other risks include U.S. Government securities risks and investments in fixed income securities. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities or derivatives owned by the Fund. Furthermore, the use of leveraging can magnify the potential for gain or loss and amplify the effects of market volatility on the Fund’s share price. The Fund is subject to regulatory change and tax risks; changes to current rules could increase costs associated with an investment in the Fund. These factors may affect the value of your investment.
