Fund Objective

The Fund’s objective is capital appreciation and capital preservation in all market conditions, with low volatility and low correlation to the US equity market.

Reasons to Invest

The Catalyst Hedged Futures Strategy Fund seeks to provide positive returns in all market conditions with low volatility and low correlation to the equity markets by investing in dynamic option strategies on equity index futures contracts.

Capital Appreciation & Preservation
The Fund seeks to provide capital appreciation and preservation in all market conditions. Since 2005, the Fund has weathered events such as the financial crisis without large drawdowns.

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

Mutual Funds involve risk including possible loss of principal. 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 turn-over 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. Changes in interest rates and the liquidity of certain investments could affect the Fund’s overall performance. 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.

Performance shown before September 2013 is for the Fund's predecessor limited liability company (Harbor Assets, LLC). The prior performance is net of management fees and other expenses including the effect of the performance fee. The Fund has been managed in the same style and by the same portfolio manager since the predecessor limited liability company's inception on December 15, 2005. The Fund's investment goals, policies, guidelines and restrictions are, in all material respects, equivalent to the predecessor limited liability company's investment goals, policies, guidelines and restrictions. From its inception on December 15, 2005 through the date of this prospectus, the predecessor limited liability company was not subject to certain investment restrictions, diversification requirements and other restrictions of the 1940 Act of the Code, which if they had been applicable, might have adversely affected its performance. In addition, the predecessor limited partnership was not subject to sales loads that would have adversely affected performance. Performance of the predecessor fund is not an indicator of future results.
