The Fund’s investment objective and/or principal investment strategies changed on 7.11.2011, 9.27.2012, and 1.29.2013. Prior to 1.29.2013, the Fund sought to achieve positive absolute returns using an investment methodology based primarily on the systematic rules-based trend-following strategy of the S&P Diversified Trends Indicator® (the “S&P DTI”). Prior to 7.11.2011, the Fund sought to provide investment results that matched, before fees and expenses, the performance of the S&P DTI. Therefore, the performance and average annual total returns shown for periods prior to 1.29.2013 may have differed had the Fund’s current investment objective and principal investment strategy been in effect during those periods.

The Managed Futures Strategy Fund may not be suitable for all investors. • The Fund's investments in securities and derivatives, in general, are subject to market risks that may cause their prices, and therefore the Fund's value, to fluctuate over time. An investment in the Fund may lose money. • The Fund’s investments in derivatives may pose risks in addition to those associated with investing directly in securities or other investments, including illiquidity of the derivatives, imperfect correlations with underlying investments or the Fund’s other portfolio holdings, lack of availability and counterparty risk. To the extent the Fund invests in derivatives to seek to hedge risk or limit leveraged exposure created by other investments, there is no guarantee that such hedging strategies will be effective at managing risk or limiting exposure to leveraged investments. • The Funds use of leverage will exaggerate the effect on net asset value of any increase or decrease in the market value of the Fund’s portfolio. • The Fund's use of short selling involves increased risk and costs. The Fund risks paying more for a security than it received from its sale. Theoretically, securities sold short have the risk of unlimited losses. • The Fund's investments in fixed income securities will change in value in response to interest rate changes and other factors. In general, bond prices rise when interest rates fall and vice versa. • The Fund‘s exposure to high yield, asset backed and mortgaged backed securities may subject the Fund to greater volatility. • The Fund's indirect and direct exposure to foreign currencies subjects the Fund to the risk that those currencies will decline in value relative to the U.S. dollar, or, in the case of short positions, that the U.S. dollar will decline in value relative to the currency being hedged. • The Fund's exposure to the commodity markets may subject the fund to greater volatility as commodity-linked investments may be affected by changes in overall market movements, commodity index volatility, changes in interest rates or factors affecting a particular industry or commodity such as droughts, floods, weather, embargos, tariffs and international economic, political and regulatory developments. • The Fund may invest in securities of foreign companies directly, or indirectly through the use of other investment companies and financial instruments that are linked to the performance of foreign issuers. Foreign securities markets generally have less trading volume and less liquidity than U.S. markets, and prices in some foreign markets may fluctuate more than those of securities traded on U.S. markets. • This Fund is considered nondiversified and can invest a greater portion of its assets in securities of individual issuers than a diversified fund. As a result, changes in the market value of a single security could cause greater fluctuations in the value of fund shares than would occur in a more diversified fund. • See the prospectus for more information on these and other risks.
