Mutual fund investing involves risk; Principal loss is possible.  Investment in debt securities typically decrease when interest rates rise.  This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities.  Investments in lower-rated and non-rated securities present a great risk of loss to principal and interest than higher rated securities.  Investments in asset-backed and mortgage-backed securities include additional risks that investors should be aware of including credit risk, prepayment risk, possible illiquidity and default, as well as increased susceptibility to adverse economic developments.  Investments in foreign securities involve political, economic, and currency risks, greater volatility, and differences in accounting methods.  These risks are greater for investments in emerging markets.  The Infrastructure Income Fund may use certain types of investment derivatives.  Derivatives may involve certain costs and risks such as liquidity, interest rate, market, credit, management and the risk that a position could not be closed when most advantageous.  Investing in derivatives could lose more than the amount invested.  The Fund may use leverage which may cause the effect of an increase or decrease in the value of the portfolio securities to be magnified and the Fund to be more volatile than if leverage was not used.  The value of the Fund’s infrastructure investments may be entirely dependent upon the successful development, construction, maintenance, renovation, enhancement or operation of infrastructure-related projects.  Accordingly, the Fund has significant exposure to adverse economic, regulatory, political, legal, demographic, environmental, and other developments affecting the success of the infrastructure investments in which it directly or indirectly invests.  The Fund is non-diversified meaning it may concentrate its assets in fewer individual holdings than a diversified fund.

The fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses must be considered carefully before investing.
