Why We Started This Fund

Through our travels around the world visiting companies we find a tremendous number of high quality, growing, and underfollowed small/micro cap companies in emerging and frontier markets. We believe these markets are positioned to be the fastest growing segment of the global economy over the coming decade, and small and micro cap companies are in a unique position to leverage the tremendous expected growth in the middle class. Yet, few investors in these markets are looking at small and micro cap companies.

*Closed to all investors, except existing investors with an established automatic investment plan and/or an established position in a retirement account.

Important Risks

Mutual fund investing involves risks and loss of principal is possible.

Investing in small and micro cap funds will be more volatile and loss of principal could be greater than investing in large cap or more diversified funds.

Investing in foreign securities entails special risks, such as currency fluctuations and political uncertainties, which are described in more detail in the prospectus. Investments in emerging markets are subject to the same risks as other foreign securities and may be subject to greater risks than investments in foreign countries with more established economies and securities markets.
