The Morningstar Sustainability RatingTM is a measure of how well the holdings in a portfolio are managing their environmental, social, and governance, or ESG, risks and opportunities relative to their Morningstar Category peers. Morningstar ranks all scored funds within a category by their Portfolio Sustainability Scores and divides them into five groups along a bell curve distribution. A fund’s rating is depicted by one to five globes with one globe being the lowest score to five globes being the highest. Sustainability Ratings only reflect information on the ESG performance of a fund’s holdings and are not an evaluation of a fund’s performance or overall investment merit.

The Analytic Global Long/Short Equity Fund, L.P. (the “Predecessor Account”) was a limited partnership that commenced operations on January 6, 2014 and reorganized into the Fund on December 12, 2014. The Fund’s objectives, policies, guidelines and restrictions are, in all material respects, equivalent to those of the Predecessor Account. Performance shown prior to December 12, 2014 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 the 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 on regulated investment companies. If the Predecessor Account had been registered its performance may have been lower.

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.

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.

Commentary

Executive Summary

Our strategy combines decades of research into the low volatility anomaly, as well as research into drivers of stock returns over time, to build a portfolio that is 100% long stocks with low predicted beta/high predicted alpha and is 30% short stocks withhigh predicted beta/low predicted alpha. These two lenses of viewing stocks each provide separate contributions as far as return to the portfolio.
