Catalyst/Millburn Dynamic Commodity Strategy Fund

Tickers: DCXAX | DCXCX | DCXIX

Fund Objective

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

Investment Strategy

The Catalyst/Millburn Dynamic Commodity Strategy Fund seeks to provide long-term strategic exposure to global commodity markets and U.S. and international equity securities in sectors related to commodities, making use of a tactical element to assume a more opportunistic or defensive posture depending on market conditions. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing in a portfolio comprising commodity futures and options on futures (the “Futures Component”) and common stocks relating primarily to commodities and natural resources (the “Equity Component”).

Futures Component
The Fund invests approximately 50% of assets in the futures component. Holdings may include futures, long and/or short positions in options on futures contracts and cash and cash equivalents for margin collateral.

Equity Component
The Fund invests approximately 50% of assets in the Equity Component, which is intended to provide long-term, strategic exposure to a number of U.S. and international equity securities in sectors related to: commodities, commodities brokerage, agriculture, farmland, timber, utilities, infrastructure, natural resources and renewable resources.

Primary Goals & Reasons to Invest

The Fund seeks to invest systematically in a portfolio of primarily commodity, commodity-related and resource-related instruments, combining an active futures strategy with a more passive strategy in equity securities. Trading systems utilized for the futures markets generate signals based on the analysis of momentum and other inputs to determine whether to take relatively higher or lower exposures, providing opportunities to take advantage of extended periods of price appreciation, or, conversely, preserve capital, as market conditions dictate.

The Fund provides investors with the potential to benefit from:

  • Extended, or periodic, cycles of upward price trends in traditional and “next generation” commodities and natural resource markets
  • Periods of rising inflation<
  • Returns in simulation that have demonstrated low correlation to traditional equity or fixed income investments
  • The experience of a leading quantitative manager that has been trading commodity markets for more than 50 years

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.
