Investments in mutual funds involve risks. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate with changing market conditions so that when redeemed, shares may be worth more or less than their original cost. Investing in real estate/REITS involves special risks such as potential liquidity and may not be suitable for all investors. Investing in international companies could experience greater volatility than investments in domestic companies due to socio-economic, market and currency value instability. Alternative investments may have additional risks that can exceed those of traditional investments such as risk associated with leveraging the investment, potential adverse market forces, regulatory changes, potential liquidity. The individual ETFs will not be able to replicate exactly the performance of the indices or sector they track. The Funds may have liquidity risk in that the Advisor may not be able to acquire or sell underlying securities held by the Funds at a price that is acceptable to the Advisor. Investors in a Fund will indirectly bear fees and expenses charged by the underlying investment companies in which the Fund invests in addition to the Fund's direct fees and expenses. Long is buying a security such as a stock, commodity or currency, with the expectation that the asset will rise in value. Short is the sale of a borrowed security, commodity or currency with the expectation that the asset will fall in value. Hedge is making an investment to reduce the risk of adverse price movements in an asset. Normally, a hedge consists of taking an offsetting position in a related security, such as a futures contract.  The price of commodities is subject to substantial price fluctuations of short periods of time and may be affected by unpredictable international monetary and political policies. The market for commodities is widely unregulated and concentrated investing may lead to higher price volatility.
