The Analytic Global Long/Short Equity Fund, L.P. (the “Predecessor Account”) was a limited partnership that commenced operations on 01/06/14 and reorganized into the Fund on 12/12/14. The Fund’s objectives, policies, guidelines and restrictions are, in all material respects, equivalent to those of the Predecessor Account. Performance shown prior to 12/12/14 is that of the Predecessor Account and has not been adjusted to reflect the expenses of the Fund’s Class I shares, which are lower than the expenses of the Predecessor Account. If Class I expenses were reflected, the Predecessor Account returns would be higher than those shown. However, the Predecessor Account was not registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and therefore was not subject to certain restrictions imposed by the Act or the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 on regulated investment companies, if it had been its performance may have been adversely affected.

You should consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. For a prospectus, or summary prospectus, that contains this and other information about the Funds, call 1-888-736-1227. Please read the prospectus or summary prospectus carefully before investing.

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. The potential loss from a short sale is theoretically unlimited since the appreciation of the underlying asset also is theoretically unlimited. Foreign investment entails additional risk from adverse changes in currency exchange rates, tax regulation, and potential market instability. Frequent trading by the Fund may reduce returns and increase the number of taxable transactions. Concentration of its portfolio in relatively few issuers may make the Fund more volatile than a diversified fund.
