COMBINING MANAGED FUTURES
AND TARGETRISK

The Fund allocates capital in a 50/50 split to two complementary investment strategies. The combined strategies seek to provide a unique risk/return profile, increased diversification and improved downside protection.

  • Managed Futures: Accesses AHL’s proprietary trend-following algorithms developed over the past three decades in more than 80 markets. The strategy has the potential to profit in both rising and falling markets and has low correlations to other asset classes.
  • TargetRisk: Provides exposure to a global multi-asset portfolio and uses three risk overlays to maintain a targeted level of volatility and mitigate drawdowns. The strategy’s balanced risk portfolio aims to perform positively in a range of market environments and applies additional risk management techniques to help in challenging market environments while potentially improving overall performance.

Derivative instruments may be highly sensitive to market factors, have less liquidity than other investments and involve the potential for losses to exceed the amount invested. Diversification does not assure a profit nor protect against loss. Quantitative models may not perform as expected and may result in losses for the Fund. Investing in foreign and emerging markets may involve heightened risk due to currency fluctuations and economic and political risks. Regulatory changes may impair the Fund’s ability to qualify for federal income tax treatment as a regulated investment company, which could result in the Fund and shareholders incurring significant income tax expense. The Fund may have high portfolio turnover risk, which could increase the Fund’s transaction costs and possibly have a negative impact on performance. Because the Fund may invest in fewer issuers than a more diversified portfolio, the fluctuating value of a single holding may have a greater effect on the value of the Fund. Please see the prospectus for a complete discussion of the Fund’s risks. There can be no assurances that the investment objectives of this Fund will be met.
