Important Risk Disclosures

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 is a new mutual fund and has a limited history of operations for investors to evaluate. 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. When the Fund invests in asset-backed securities and mortgage-backed securities, the Fund is subject to the risk that, if the underlying borrowers fail to pay interest or repay principal, the assets backing these securities may not be sufficient to support payments on the securities. 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. Lowerquality 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.
All funds reporting to Allocator.com are considered for the awards.
There are two types of awards:
- The Top Performer Awards — these are granted to the select few funds, which have outperformed their wider peer group in each category. Winners are determined purely based on quantitative risk adjusted returns. For 2020 we have extended the time period under consideration to evaluate how managers navigated both 2019 and the Covid-19 related market turbulence in early 2020. The 2020 Top Performer award winners will be chosen based on absolute returns from January 1, 2019 to April 30, 2020. The LongTerm categories consider returns from January 2017 to April 2020.
- The Investors Choice Awards — For each category, the fund, which receives the highest qualitative scoring by the judges receives the prestigious award. Institutional investors from around the world score the Top Performers on a range of qualitative criteria including investment processes, risk framework, transparency, team, and ability to generate alpha. The judges review manager profiles on the Allocator.com portal and independently assign a score from 1 to 10 in each of the qualitative assessment areas for each fund.
