INVESTING RISK: Mutual Fund investing involves risk, including the potential loss of principal. The Small Cap Growth Fund invests in foreign securities which involve certain risks such as currency volatility, political and social instability and reduced market liquidity. Growth Securities typically are very sensitive to market movements, particularly over the short term. Small-cap investing involve greater risk not associated with investing in more established companies, such as greater price volatility, business risk and less liquidity. From time to time, the Fund may invest a significant amount of its total assets in certain sectors of the economy, which may be subject to specific risks, like changes in governmental regulation and policy and changes in market sentiment. The Fund invests in ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) and is therefore subject to the same risks as the underlying securities in which ETFs invest as well as entails higher expenses that if invested into the underlying ETF directly. The Fund is newly organized and has limited operating history.
