Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results. The 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. Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance data shown without sales charge does not include the load or CDSC. If reflected, the load or fee would reduce the performance quoted. To discourage mutual fund timers the Fund imposes a 2.00% redemption fee on shares held for less than 90 days. Performance data does not reflect the redemption fee. If it had, returns would be reduced. Investment performance reflects fee waivers in effect. In the absence of such waivers, total return would be reduced.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible.
Principal Risks of Investing in the Fund:
Foreign investments involve additional risks, including greater volatility and political, economic, and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. Emerging markets countries involve greater risks, such as immature economic structures, national policies restricting investments by foreigners, and different legal systems. Such risks may be magnified with respect to securities of issuers in frontier emerging markets. Small capitalization companies tend to have limited liquidity and greater price volatility than large-capitalization companies. The Fund may experience higher fees and is subject to additional risks due to investments in other investment companies (including ETFs).

The O'Shaughnessy Funds are distributed by Quasar Distributors, LLC.
