As a non-diversified fund, the value of its shares may fluctuate more than shares invested in a broader range of companies. In addition, investing in foreign securities involves more risk than just U.S. investments, including the risk of currency fluctuations, political and economic instability and differences in financial reporting standards. There may also be heightened risks investing in non-investment grade debt securities and the use of options. There are also risks associated with investing in small and medium sized companies. Non-investment grade debt securities, i.e., junk bonds, are subject to greater credit risk, price volatility and risk of loss than investment grade securities. Options contain special risks including the imperfect correlation between the value of the option and the value of the underlying asset. The Fund invests in options and other derivative instruments, which are specialized activities and entail greater than ordinary investment risks, including that they may be illiquid, difficult to price and leveraged so that small changes may produce disproportionate losses. The Fund may rely on SEC orders that permit it to invest greater than 5% of its total assets in the securities of other investment companies, some of which may be exchange traded funds (ETFs). As a shareholder in an ETF, the Alternative Income Fund will bear its pro rata portion of an ETFs expenses, including advisory fees, in addition to its own expenses. Investing in foreign securities can carry higher returns than those generally associated with U.S. investments, however, foreign securities may be substantially riskier than U.S. investments. You should consult the fundís prospectus for a complete list of risks associated with your investment.
