The Morningstar Ratingā„¢ for funds, or ā€œstar ratingā€, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutualfunds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed productā€™s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The Morningstar Rating does not include any adjustment for sales loads. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.
The Mondrian International Value Equity Fund was rated against the following numbers of U.S.-domiciled Foreign Large value funds over the following time periods: 323 funds in the last three years, 283 funds in the last five years and 179Ā funds in the last ten years. With respect to these Foreign Large Value funds, the Mondrian International Value Equity Fund received a Morningstar Rating of 3Ā stars, 3 stars and 3 stars for the three, five and ten-year periods, respectively. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

To determine if the Fund is an appropriate investment for you, carefully consider the Fundā€™s investment objectives, risk, and charges and expenses. This and other information can be found in the Fund’s full and summary prospectus which can be obtained by callingĀ 888-832-4386Ā or by visitingĀ www.mondrian.com/mutualfunds. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. International investments entail risks not ordinarily associated with U.S. investments including fluctuation in currency values, differences in accounting principles, or economic or political instability in other nations. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors, as well as increased volatility and lower trading volume. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, investments in smaller companies typically exhibit higher volatility. Concentration in infrastructure-related securities involves sector risk and concentration risk, particularly greater exposure to adverse economic, regulatory, political, legal, liquidity, and tax risks associated with MLPs and REITs. The Fund may invest in derivatives, which are often more volatile than other investments and may magnify the Fund’s gains or losses.
