Types of Investments
The Fund will invest, directly or indirectly, at least 80% of its net assets in U.S. fixed-income securities, primarily via shares of registered, open-end investment companies and exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) that are principally invested in U.S. fixed-income securities. The Fund may also invest a portion of its assets directly in fixed-income securities. The underlying funds generally will invest in the universe of U.S. public, fixed-income securities, including U.S. government obligations, U.S. government agency obligations, bank obligations, corporate debt obligations, commercial paper, repurchase agreements, and other debt obligations of domestic issuers. 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”). The Fund does not seek to maintain any particular weighted average maturity or duration, and may invest in underlying funds that hold fixed-income instruments of any maturity or duration.
Typical investors in this fund are seeking a conservative fixed income solution and are willing to accept some share price volatility.
Get to know our key personnel
The fund’s adviser has contractually agreed to waive its management fee until at least December 31, 2022 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, 2022 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 0.41% 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.

There are risks involved in investing, including loss of principal. Asset allocation may not protect against market loss. Investment in the fund(s) is subject to the risks of underlying funds.
Diversification seeks to reduce volatility by spreading your investment dollars into various asset classes to add balance to your portfolio. Using this methodology, however, does not guarantee a profit or protection from loss in a declining market. Rebalancing assets can have tax consequences. If you sell assets in a taxable account you may have to pay tax on any gain resulting from the sale. Please consult your tax advisor.
Symmetry Partners’ investment approach seeks enhanced returns by overweighting assets that exhibit characteristics that tend to be in accordance with one or more “factors” identified in academic research as historically associated with higher returns. Please be advised that adding these factors may not ensure increased return over a market weighted investment and may lead to underperformance relative to the benchmark over the investor’s time horizon. The factors Symmetry seeks to capture may change over time at its discretion. Currently, the major factors in equity markets used by Symmetry and some associated academic research are: the market risk premium (Sharpe, William F. “Capital Asset Prices: A Theory of Market Equilibrium under Conditions of Risk.” The Journal of Finance, Vol. 19, No. 3 (Sept. 1964), 425-442.), value (Fama, Eugene and Ken French. “Common risk factors in the returns on stocks and bonds.” Journal of Financial Economics, 33, (1993), 3-56.), small (Banz, Rolf W. “The Relationship Between Return and Market Value of Common Stocks.” Journal of Financial Economics, 9 (1981), 3-18.), profitability (Novy-Marx, Robert. “The Other Side of Value: The Gross Profitability Premium.” Journal of Financial Economics, 108(1), (2013), 1-28. ), quality (Asness, Clifford S.; Andrea Frazzini; and Lasse H. Pedersen. “Quality Minus Junk.” Working Paper.), momentum (Jegadeesh,Narasimhan and Sheridan Titman. “Returns to Buying Winners and Selling Losers: Implications for Stock Market Efficiency.” The Journal of Finance, Vol. 48, No. 1, (March 1993), 65-91), and minimum volatility (Ang, Andrew, Robert J. Hodrick, Yuhang Xing and Xiaoyan Zhang. “The Cross-Section of Volatility and Expected Returns.” The Journal of Finance, Vol. 61, No. 1 (Feb. 2006), pp. 259-299.) On the bond side, Symmetry primarily seeks to capture maturity and credit risk premiums (Ilmanen, Antti. Expected Returns: An Investor’s Guide to Harvesting Market Rewards. WileyFinance, 2011, p157-158 and 183-185.). All data is from sources believed to be reliable but cannot be guaranteed or warranted.
