The Fund modified its investment objective and strategy effective September 24, 2012. The manager believes that performance for periods prior to this date continue to substantially reflect the current investment strategy. Returns prior to 6/23/08 reflect the performance of a predecessor fund. Please consult the Fund's prospectus for more detail. Total returns assume the reinvestment of all distributions. Total returns may reflect a waiver of part of the Fund's fees for certain periods since inception, without which returns would have been lower. Indexes are unmanaged and have been provided for comparison purposes only. No fees or expenses are reflected. You cannot invest directly in an index. The Citirgoup 3-month Treasury Bill Index is the Fund's benchmark.
