You should carefully consider the investment objectives, potential risks, management fees, and charges and expenses of the Fund before investing.  The Fund's prospectus contains this and other information about the Fund, and should be read carefully before investing.  You may obtain a current copy of the Fund's prospectus by calling 1-888-848-7569.  Past performance is no guarantee of future results.  Performance data current to the most recent month end may be obtained by calling 1-888-848-7569. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Investments in closed end funds are subject to investment risk, including the possible loss of the entire principal amount that you invest.  The value of these securities, like other market investments, may move up or down, sometimes rapidly and unpredictably. At any point in time an investment may be worth less than the original investment, even after considering the reinvestment of fund dividends and distributions. Closed-end funds also carry price risk, or the risk that shares may trade at prices different from their net asset values.

Asset allocation nor diversification do not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss.

An investment in an exchange-traded fund (ETF) generally presents the same primary risks as an investment in a conventional fund (i.e., one that is not exchange traded) that has the same investment objectives, strategies, and policies. The price of an ETF can fluctuate up or down, and the Fund could lose money investing in an ETF if the prices of the securities owned by the ETF go down. In addition, ETFs may be subject to the following risks that do not apply to conventional funds: (i) the market price of an ETF's shares may trade above or below their net asset value; (ii) an active trading market for an ETF's shares may not develop or be maintained; or (iii) trading of an ETF's shares may be halted if the listing exchange's officials deem such  action appropriate, the shares are delisted from the exchange, or the activation of market-wide "circuit breakers" (which are tied to large decreases in stock prices) halts stock trading generally.

Alpha is a since inception statistic benchmarked against the S&P 500 based on monthly total returns.  Alpha is a measure of a fund's actual returns and expected performance, given its level of risk (as measured by beta).
