The Fund’s returns will vary, and you could lose money by investing in the Fund.  The Fund invests most of its assets in equity securities of domestic growth companies where the primary risk is that the value of the equity securities it holds might decrease in response to the activities of those companies or market and economic conditions. Individual securities may not perform as expected or a strategy used by the Adviser may fail to produce its intended result. The securities of smaller and medium sized companies tend to be more volatile and less liquid than securities of larger companies.  In addition, small and medium sized companies may be traded in lower volumes. This can increase volatility and increase the liquidity risk whereby the Fund will not be able to sell the security on short notice at a reasonable price. The Fund is not intended to be a complete investment program. The Fund is designed for long-term investors.
