Information About Risk

Equity Securities Risk. Investing in equity securities is subject to the risk that stock prices will fall over short or extended periods of time. Historically, the equity markets have moved in cycles, and the value of equity securities may fluctuate from day to day. Individual companies may report poor results or be negatively affected by industry and/or economic trends and developments. The prices of securities issued by such companies may suffer a decline in response. These factors contribute to price volatility, which is a principal risk of investing in equity securities. Market Risk. The value of securities in the equity portfolio will fluctuate and, as a result, the share price may decline suddenly or over a sustained period. The equity securities purchased may involve large price swings and potential for loss. Management Risk. The strategies used by the Adviser may fail to produce the intended result. Large Cap Risk. Larger, more established companies may be unable to attain the high growth rates of successful, smaller companies during periods of economic expansion. Risks of Investment Selection and Asset Allocation. The strategy’s investment success depends on the skill of the Adviser in evaluating, selecting and monitoring the portfolio assets. If the Adviser’s conclusions about growth rates or securities values are incorrect, the strategy may not perform as anticipated.

The fraction of a fund’s portfolio holdings that deviate from the benchmark index. The active share of a mutual fund ranges from zero (pure index fund) to 100% (no overlap with the benchmark). Upside Capture Ratio – measures a manager’s performance in up markets relative to the market (benchmark) itself. It is calculated by taking the security’s upside capture return and dividing it by the benchmark’s upside capture return. Downside Capture Ratio – The downside Capture Ratio measures the manager’s performance in down markets. A down-market is defined as those periods (months or quarters) in which market return is less than 0. In essence, it tells you what percentage of the down-market was captured by the manager. For example, if the ratio is 110%, the manager has captured 110% of the down-market and therefore underperformed the market on the downside.

Since Inception – Prior to 2015, the Live model was managed by the same team through an affiliated company, Applied Finance Group.
