The performance data quoted represents past performance and is not a guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

The Fund commenced investment operations on July 1, 2015, after the conversion of a private fund (the “Private Fund”) into shares of the Fund. The performance prior to the Fund’s inception is for the Private Fund, which commenced operations on August 1, 2008. The returns for the Private Fund reflect its performance prior to the conversion into the Fund. The Private Fund was not registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and was not subject to certain restrictions under that Act, but if the Private Fund had been registered, it is possible the performance may have been adversely affected. The Fund’s objectives, policies, guidelines and restrictions are, in all material respects, equivalent to those of the Private Fund.

The gross and net expense ratios are 0.52% and 0.49%, respectively.*

Please consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. The prospectus that contains this and other information about the Fund is available by calling 1.877.997.9971 and should be read carefully prior to investing.

An investment in the Fund is subject to risks and you could lose money on your investment in the Fund. The Fund is exposed to the same risks that are associated with investing in underlying municipal securities owned by the Fund. The Fund is subject to interest rate risk; as interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. Credit risk arises from an issuer’s ability to make interest and principal payments when due, as well as the prices of bonds declining when an issuer’s credit quality is expected to deteriorate. Investments in below investment grade or high yield securities are subject to liquidity risk and heightened credit risk.

The use of derivatives involves substantial financial risks and transaction costs. Certain derivatives may be illiquid. The Fund’s use of inverse floaters may magnify the potential for losses. The Fund periodically engages in portfolio leverage and when doing so, assumes a higher level of risk in pursuit of its objectives. Leverage involves the risk that the Fund could lose more than its original investment and also increases the Fund’s exposure to volatility, interest rate risk and credit risk.

Investing in securities of non-U.S. issuers or U.S. issues with significant non-U.S. operations may present more risk due to the inherent risks associated with political, social, and economic development abroad and different legal, regulatory, and tax environments. A strong U.S. dollar relative to other currencies will adversely affect the value of the Fund’s portfolio.

Income may be subject to the alternative minimum tax.

These and other risk considerations, such as preferred securities, call, income, municipal lease obligations, political and economic, underlying fund, and zero coupon bond risks, are described in detail in the Fund’s prospectus.
