There is no guarantee that any investment strategy will achieve its objectives, generate profits or avoid losses.
Flexible 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.
