Catalyst MLP & Infrastructure Fund

Tickers: MLXAX | MLXCX | MLXIX

Fund Objective

The Fund’s objective is current income and capital appreciation.

Reasons to Invest

The Catalyst MLP & Infrastructure Fund invests in equity securities of general partners (“GPs”) of master limited partnerships (“MLPs”) and other energy- related companies, seeking to realize faster growth and higher distributions than traditional MLPs.

Advantages Over Traditional MLPs
By focusing on GPs, the Fund offers potential advantages over traditional MLPs, including preferential economics, greater control and faster growth.

Attractive Yield Potential
The Fund focuses on reliable distributions with growth prospects linked to midstream energy companies, such as pipeline and storage businesses, which own and develop long-lived assets with recurring distributions and attractive growth prospects.

Strong Track Record
In 2005, the Portfolio Manager seeded Alerian Capital Management (who developed the primary index for the sector) and has been investing in MLPs ever since. The management team has managed a similar strategy in SMA format (see Prospectus for performance), which has consistently met its objective of current income and capital appreciation.

Preferential Tax Treatment
The Fund keeps MLP investments to less than 25% to avoid the corporate tax incurred by mutual funds and ETFs that invest primarily in MLPs. Fund investors will receive a 1099.

All or a portion of a distribution may consist of a return of capital (i.e., from your original investment). Shareholders should not assume that the source of a distribution from the Fund is net profit. Shareholders should note that return of capital will reduce the tax basis of their shares and potentially increase the taxable gain, if any, upon disposition of their shares.

SEC Yield: A standardized yield calculation created by the SEC that reflects the net income earned during a 30-day period.
Record Date: The date established for the purpose of determining the holders who are entitled to receive a distribution.
Payable Date: The date the distribution is scheduled to be paid.

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 focuses its investments in the energy infrastructure sector, which may cause the performance of the Fund to be tied closely to developments in the energy sector. The Fund investments may include foreign securities. Foreign companies are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as domestic securities thereby resulting in less publicly available information. Investments in lesser-known, small and medium capitalization companies may be more vulnerable than larger, more established organizations. Investments in MLPs and MLP-related securities involve risks different from those of investing in common stocks. Potential risks include conflicts of interest between an MLP and the MLP’s general partner, cash flow risks, and dilution risks. MLPs and MLP-related securities are generally considered interest-rate sensitive investments. Depending on the state of interest rates in general, the use of MLPs could enhance or harm the overall performance of the Fund. These factors may affect the value of your investment.
