 1The Advisor has contractually agreed to reduce its fees at least until September 30, 2025.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. The 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 of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. The fund imposes a 1.00% redemption fee on retail class shares held less than 30 days and 60 days for institutional class shares. Performance data does not reflect the redemption fee. If reflected, total return would be reduced. Performance reflected is net of all other fees and expenses.
