Diversification neither assures a profit nor eliminates the risk of experiencing investment losses.

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. Class A shares with load 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. The securities mentioned are provided for informational purposes only and should not be deemed as a recommendation to buy or sell.

The Commodities Strategy Fund may not be suitable for all investors. • 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, embargoes, tariffs and international economic, political and regulatory developments. • To the extent that the fund’s investments are concentrated in energy-related commodities, the fund is subject to the risk that this sector will underperform the market as a whole. • The fund’s use of derivatives, such as futures, options, structured notes and swap agreements, may expose the fund to additional risks that it would not be subject to if it invested directly in the securities or investments underlying those derivatives. • The more the Fund invests in leveraged instruments, the more the leverage will magnify any gains or losses on those investments. • The fund is subject to tracking error risks, which may cause the fund’s performance not to match that of or be lower than the fund’s underlying benchmark. • The fund’s investments in other investment companies subjects the fund to those risks affecting the investment company, including the possibility that the value of the underlying securities held by the investment company could decrease. Moreover, the fund will incur its pro rata share of the expenses of the underlying investment companies’ expenses. • 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. • See the prospectus for more information on these and additional risks

+ The Advisor has contractually agreed to waive the management fee it receives from the Fund in an amount equal to the management fee paid to the Advisor by the Subsidiary. This undertaking will continue in effect for so long as the Fund invests in the Subsidiary, and may be terminated only with the approval of the Fund’s Board of Trustees. Total annual operating expenses vary by share class. See the prospectus for information on the fees and expenses that apply to each share class.
