The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Catalyst Hedged Futures Strategy Fund violated federal securities laws by making materially false and/or misleading public statements and/or failing to disclose material information to investors. In August 2013, Catalyst was converted from a hedge fund to a mutual fund. The Fund stated in its Prospectuses that its objective is "capital appreciation and capital preservation in all market conditions, with low volatility and low correlation to the US equity market." It was eventually revealed, however, that Catalyst continued to make investments as if it were a hedge fund. Specifically, the Fund made a directional bet that the general equity market would not rise significantly in value, in the form of massive option contracts that effectively "shorted" the S&P 500. As these undisclosed risks materialized, the Fund's investors suffered hundreds of millions of dollars in losses. Between February 2, 2017 and March 15, 2017, the Net Asset Value of Catalyst's Class A shares, Class C shares and Class I shares declined approximately 21%.
