Performance displayed represents past performance which is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate so that when shares are redeemed, they may be worth more or less than original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. Returns for performance under one year are cumulative, not annualized. Performance shown reflects maximum sales charges or contingent deferred sales charges (CDSC) as applicable. Class A-shares have a maximum sales charge of 4.75%. Class C-shares have a maximum CDSC of 1% for shares redeemed within 12 months of purchase.
Data is subject to change on a daily basis. Partial year returns are cumulative, not annualized. Returns reflect the reinvestment of dividends.
Inverse and leveraged funds are not suitable for all investors. •These funds should be utilized only by investors who (a) understand the risks associated with the use of leverage, (b) understand the consequences of seeking daily leveraged investment results, (c) understand the risk of shorting, and (d) intend to actively monitor and manage their investments. •The more a fund invests in leveraged instruments, the more the leverage will magnify any gains or losses on those investments. •Inverse funds involve certain risks, which include increased volatility due to the funds’ possible use of short sales of securities and derivatives, such as options and futures. •The funds’ use of derivatives, such as futures, options and swap agreements, may expose the funds’ shareholders to additional risks that they would not be subject to if they invested directly in the securities underlying those derivatives. •Short-selling involves increased risks and costs. You risk paying more for a security than you received from its sale. •Leveraged and inverse funds seek to provide investment results that match the performance of a specific benchmark, before fees and expenses, on a daily basis. Because the funds seek to track the performance of their benchmark on a daily basis, mathematical compounding, especially with respect to those funds that use leverage as part of their investment strategy, may prevent a fund from correlating with the monthly, quarterly, annual or other period performance of its benchmark. Due to the compounding of daily returns, leveraged and inverse funds’ returns over periods other than one day will likely differ in amount and possibly direction from the benchmark return for the same period. For those funds that consistently apply leverage, the value of the fund’s shares will tend to increase or decrease more than the value of any increase or decrease in its benchmark index. The funds rebalance their portfolios on a daily basis, increasing exposure in response to that day’s gains or reducing exposure in response to that day’s losses. Daily rebalancing will impair a fund’s performance if the benchmark experiences volatility. Investors should monitor their leveraged and inverse funds’ holdings consistent with their strategies, as frequently as daily. •For more on these and other risks, please read the prospectus. •There are no assurances that any Rydex SGI fund will achieve its objective and/or strategy. •The fund is subject to active trading and tracking error risks, which may increase volatility, impact the fund’s ability to achieve its investment objective, and decrease the fund’s performance. •This fund is considered non-diversified 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. •The fund’s investments in developed and emerging foreign markets may increase the fund’s volatility due to the impact of diplomatic, political or economic developments on the country in question. •Additionally, the fund’s direct and indirect 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 currencies. •A fund’s investment in the securities of non-US companies in the form of American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) poses special risks associated with international investing, including fluctuating exchange rates, government regulations and differences in liquidity, which may affect the volatility and performance of a fund.
