Global Systematic Fixed Income Fund
Initial Minimum Investment
Gross Expense Ratio 1
Net Expense Ratio 1
The Fund seeks income and capital appreciation through systematic exposure to global fixed income securities.
The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective primarily by implementing a market-based factor approach to fixed income that the Fund’s investment adviser, Symmetry, believes has the potential to produce income and capital appreciation before fees over time. Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest, directly or indirectly, at least 80% of its net assets in fixed income securities. The Fund will invest in fixed income securities denominated in U.S. dollars and non-U.S. currencies. Under normal market conditions, the Fund will allocate its investments between U.S. and non-U.S. securities (which may include emerging market securities) and other investments in amounts comparable to the allocation represented in the Fund’s benchmark. However, the Fund may overweight or underweight those allocations by up to 10% of net assets and also may depart from those allocations during times when market conditions are not deemed favorable.

Typical investors in this fund are seeking a conservative fixed income solution and are willing to accept some share price volatility.
Types of Investments
The Fund generally will invest in obligations of U.S. and Non-U.S. entities, including government and government agency obligations, bank obligations, corporate bonds, asset-backed securities, mortgage-related and mortgage-backed securities, commercial paper, repurchase agreements, and other debt obligations and cash and cash equivalents. Mortgage-related and mortgage-backed securities may be structured as collateralized mortgage obligations (agency and non-agency), stripped mortgage-backed securities, commercial mortgage-backed securities, mortgage pass-through securities and mortgage TBAs (“to-be-announced”). The Fund may invest in fixed income instruments with fixed or adjustable (floating) rates. The Fund may also invest a portion of its assets in high-yield (lower rated) debt instruments (also known as “below investment grade” or “junk bonds,” which are considered speculative). The Fund does not seek to maintain any particular weighted average maturity or duration, and may invest in fixed income instruments of any maturity or duration. The Fund may also invest in debt obligations that are issued by a non U.S. corporation or a U.S. affiliate of a non U.S. corporation or a non U.S. government or its agencies and instrumentalities.

Get to know our key personnel
The fund’s adviser has contractually agreed to waive its management fee until at least December 31, 2024 so that the aggregate management fee retained by the Adviser with respect to the fund after payment of sub-advisory fees does not exceed 0.25% of the Fund’s average net assets. The Adviser also has contractually agreed to reduce the Fund’s fees and/or absorb expenses of the Fund until at least December 31, 2024 to ensure that total annual Fund operating expenses after expense waiver and reimbursement (exclusive of any front-end or contingent deferred loads; brokerage fees and commissions; acquired fund fees and expenses; borrowing costs (such as interest and dividend expense on securities sold short); taxes; and extraordinary expenses such as litigation expenses) will not exceed 0.57% of average daily net assets of the Fund. This agreement may be terminated by the Fund’s Board of Trustees on 60 days’ written notice to the Adviser. This fee waiver/expense reimbursement is subject to possible recoupment from the Fund in future years on a rolling three year basis (within the three years after the fees have been waived or reimbursed) if such recoupment can be achieved without exceeding the foregoing expense limits.
