The performance data quoted represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted.

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. An investment in the funds involves risk, including possible loss of principal. The Prospectus contains this and other information about the Fund. For a current Prospectus, call toll-free 1-866-306-8117. Please read the Prospectus carefully before you invest. Investing involves risk, including the possibility of loss of principal.

Market returns are based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4 p.m. ET and do not represent the returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times. The Adviser has voluntarily agreed to reimburse fees. This agreement may change or end at any time. Performance would have been lower without expense reimbursement in effect.

†Morningstar Rating™ or “star rating”: For funds with at least a 3-year history, a risk-adjusted-return measure is calculated to account for variation in monthly performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistency. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, next 22.5%=4 stars, next 35%=3 stars, next 22.5%=2 stars, and bottom 10%=1 star. The “Overall” Rating is derived from a weighted average of the 3-, 5-, and 10-year ratings (if applicable). Within the Tactical Allocation category, for the 3-, 5-, and 10-year periods, LCR is rated 4 , NA, and NA stars, among 254, NA, and NA funds. ©2023 Morningstar, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Risks of Investing in the Fund

Asset Allocation Risk: The Fund may favor an asset category or investment strategy that performs poorly to other asset categories and investment strategies for short or long periods of time.

Foreign and Emerging Markets Securities Risk: Investments in securities and instruments traded in developing or emerging markets, or that provide exposure to such securities, can involve additional risks relating to political, economic, or regulatory conditions not associated with investment in U.S. securities and instruments.

Market Risks: Common stocks are susceptible to general stock market fluctuations and to volatile increases and decreases in value as market confidence and perceptions of their issuers change.

Fixed Income Securities Risk: Issuers of bonds may not be able to make interest or principal payments, or may suffer adverse changes in financial condition that could lower the credit quality.

Quantitative Investment Approach Risk: The Fund utilizes a quantitative investment approach. There may be market conditions where the quantitative investment approach performs poorly.

Managed Futures Strategy/Commodities Risk: Investments in managed futures programs or commodities may subject an Underlying Investment to greater volatility than investments in traditional securities.

Sector Risk: The Fund’s investing approach may dictate an emphasis on certain sectors, industries, or sub-sectors of the market. The Fund may invest more heavily in one sector, industry, or sub-sector; or may lack exposure to one or more sectors, which may adversely affect performance.
