The AdvisorOne CLS Growth and Income Fund’s portfolio is invested to maintain risk levels equal to approximately 55% of a diversified equity portfolio. The diversified equity portfolio is definied as 60% of the Russell 3000® Index and 40% of the MSCI ACWI (ex-US). CLS Investments, LLC (CLS), the fund’s investment adviser, seeks to control risk within a given range by estimating the cumulative risk of the Fund’s investments and keeping it near that of the blended benchmark. CLS’s assessment of the risk of an asset is based primarily on its volatility and its performance during down periods.
CLS actively manages the Fund’s investments by increasing or decreasing the Fund’s investment in particular asset classes, sectors, regions and countries, or in a particular security, based on its assessment of the opportunities for return relative to the risk using fundamental and technical analysis. Because of the varying levels of risk amongst equity and bond asset classes, the percent allocated to equities and bonds will vary depending on which asset classes are selected for the portfolio.

CLS Growth and Income is a fund of funds meaning it invests in underlying mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (“Underlying Funds”). As a result, the Fund indirectly bears investment management fees of the underlying funds in addition to the fees and expenses of the Fund. In some instances it may be less expensive for an investor to invest in the underlying funds directly. There is also a risk that investment advisers of those underlying funds may make investment decisions that are detrimental to the performance of the Fund. Investments in underlying funds that own small- and mid-capitalization companies may be more vulnerable than larger, more established organizations. Investments in underlying funds that invest in foreign equity and debt securities could subject the Fund to greater risks including, currency fluctuation, economic conditions, and different governmental and accounting standards.
