Other funds managed by James Gibson:

The Fund's fixed income securities are subject to interest rate risk. If rates increase, the value of the Fund's investments generally declines.

The Fund may invest in securities that are below investment grade (i.e., "high yield" or "junk bonds") that are generally rated in the fifth or lower rating categories of Standard & Poor's and Moody's Investors Service. Although these securities tend to provide higher yields than higher-rated securities, there is a greater risk that the Fund's share price will decline.

The Fund has the ability to invest 100% of its total assets in high yield securities.

The Fund may invest in derivatives that may be riskier than other types of investments because they may be more sensitive to changes in economic or market conditions and could result in losses that significantly exceed the Fund's original investment. Many derivatives create leverage that can cause the Fund to be more volatile than it would be if it had not used derivatives.

The Fund's investment in equity securities may rise or fall because of changes in the broad market or changes in a company's financial condition, sometimes rapidly or unpredictably. When the value of a fund's securities goes down, an investment in a fund decreases in value.
