distinguishing characteristics

  • TwentyFour believes environmental, social and governance factors may have an effect on the value of their investments and thus strives to enhance investor returns and play a part in promoting better ESG outcomes.
  • The Fund’s sub-advisor has significant latitude to take advantage of prevailing market conditions, allowing investors to benefit from a high-conviction portfolio comprised of global bonds and fixed-income instruments.
  • The Fund, which is not managed against traditional market benchmarks, seeks alpha through diversification and helps mitigate interest-rate risk by investing broadly across global fixed-income markets.
  • The Fund may invest in, or obtain exposure to, debt instruments from a broad range of fixed-income assets, including investment-grade bonds, high-yield bonds, government bonds, asset-backed securities and other bonds.
  • The Fund aims to maximize risk-adjusted returns, meaning that certain securities may be acquired on a “buy-and-hold” basis while others may be traded opportunistically.

The use of fixed-income securities entails interest rate and credit risks. Investing in derivative instruments involves liquidity, credit, interest rate and market risks. Interest rate risk is the risk that debt securities will decrease in value with increases in market interest rates. Credit risk is the risk that the issuer of a bond will fail to make timely payment of interest or principal; the decline in an issuer's credit rating can cause the price of its bonds to go down. Investments in high-yield securities (commonly referred to as "junk bonds"), including loans, CLOs, restricted securities and floating-rate securities, are subject to greater levels of credit, interest rate, market and liquidity risks than investment-grade securities. The Fund may have high portfolio turnover risk, which could increase the Fund's transaction costs and possibly have a negative impact on performance. To the extent the Fund invests more heavily in particular sectors, its performance will be sensitive to factors affecting those sectors. Financial sector companies are heavily regulated and particularly sensitive to interest rate fluctuations. To the extent the Fund invests more heavily in a particular country or geographic region, its performance will be sensitive to factors affecting that country or region. Investing in foreign and emerging market securities may involve heightened risk due to currency fluctuations and economic and political risks. Geopolitical and other events have led to market disruptions causing adverse changes in the value of investments broadly. Changes in value may be temporary or may last for extended periods. The Fund's incorporation of environmental, social and/or governance (ESG) considerations in its investment strategy may cause it to underperform funds that do not incorporate these considerations. 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.
