Le fonds veut assurer la rentabilité

Risques d'investissement majeurs

Les actions du Fonds ne sont pas des dépôts
les obligations des banques ne sont garanties par aucune banque et ne sont fournies ni par la FDIC ni par aucun autre organisme gouvernemental.

· Risque de crédit. Il y a un danger que
les émetteurs ne paient pas les titres détenus par le Fonds, ce qui entraîne des pertes pour le Fonds. En outre, la qualité du crédit
l'émission de titres détenus par le Fonds peut être réduite si la situation financière de l'émetteur change. Cela peut entraîner une baisse de la qualité du crédit

En outre, en cas de défaillance, le Fonds peut encourir des coûts pour récupérer du capital ou des intérêts.
· Risque de revenu fixe et de taux d’intérêt.
Lorsque le Fonds investit dans des titres à taux fixe, la valeur de son placement dans le fonds varie en fonction des variations de taux d’intérêt.

La hausse des prix a tendance à réduire la liquidité,
augmenter les coûts de transaction et la volatilité, ce qui rend la gestion de portefeuille plus difficile et plus coûteuse pour le Fonds et
actionnaires. De plus, le risque de défaut augmente lorsque les émetteurs empruntent davantage.

MANAGEMENT

Investment Adviser: The Fund’s
investment adviser is de Koning and Company, LLC, doing business as TransWestern Capital Advisors, LLC. The adviser is located
at 155 S. Madison Street, Suite 210, Denver, CO 80209. The adviser serves institutional investors such as banks and investment
companies. Subject to the oversight of the Trust’s Board of Trustees, the adviser is responsible for managing the Fund’s
investments, including through the subadviser. The adviser is responsible for selecting and supervising the Fund’s subadviser
and assuring that investments are made according to the Fund’s investment objectives, policies, and restrictions, and providing
related administrative services and facilities under an investment advisory agreement between the Trust, with respect to the Fund,
and the adviser.

Pursuant to an investment advisory agreement,
the Fund pays the adviser, on a monthly basis, an annual advisory fee equivalent to 0.45% of the Fund’s average daily net
assets. In addition to investment advisory fees, the Fund pays other expenses including costs incurred in connection with the maintenance
of its securities law registration, printing and mailing prospectuses and Statements of Additional Information to shareholders,
certain financial accounting services, taxes or governmental fees, custodial, transfer and shareholder servicing agent costs, expenses
of outside counsel and independent accountants, preparation of shareholder reports and expenses of trustee and shareholders meetings.
For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, the Fund paid investment advisory fees to the adviser at an annual rate of 0.40% of
the average daily net assets of the Fund.

The adviser has contractually agreed to reduce
its fees and to reimburse expenses, if necessary, at least until April 30, 2020, to ensure that total annual fund operating expenses
after fee waiver and/or reimbursement (exclusive of any front-end or contingent deferred loads; brokerage fees and commissions;
acquired fund fees and expenses; fees and expenses associated with instruments in other collective investment vehicles or derivative
instruments (including for example options and swap fees and expenses); borrowing costs (such as interest and dividend expense
on securities sold short); taxes; and extraordinary expenses, such as litigation expenses (which may include indemnification of
Fund officers and Trustees and contractual indemnification of Fund service providers (other than the adviser)) will not exceed
0.65% of average daily net assets (the “Expense Limitation Agreement”). Fee waivers and expense reimbursements are
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 within the foregoing expense limits. A discussion regarding
the basis for the Board of Trustee’s and most recent approval of the investment advisory agreement is available in the Fund’s
annual shareholder report dated December 31, 2018.

Subadviser: Loomis, Sayles & Company,
L.P. (“Loomis Sayles”), located at One Financial Center, Boston, MA 02111, serves as subadviser to the Fund. Subject
to the oversight of the Board of Trustees and the adviser, the subadviser is responsible for day-to-day execution of the Fund’s
strategy and management of the Fund’s investment portfolio according to the Fund’s investment objective, policies and
restrictions. The subadviser is paid by the adviser, not the Fund. The subadviser advises institutional investors, such as investment
companies and pension plans. A discussion regarding the basis for the Board of Trustees’ approval of the subadviser and the
subadvisory agreement is available in the Fund’s annual shareholder report dated December 31, 2018

HOW SHARES ARE PRICED

The NAV and offering price (NAV plus any applicable
sales charges) of each class of shares is determined as of the close of the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”), generally
4:00 p.m. (Eastern Time), on each day the NYSE is open for business. NAV is computed by determining the aggregate market value
of all assets of the Fund less its liabilities divided by the total number of the Fund’s shares outstanding ((assets-liabilities)/number
of shares=NAV). The NYSE is closed on weekends and New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Presidents’ Day, Good
Friday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. The NAV takes into account the expenses
and fees of the Fund, including investment advisory, administration, and distribution fees, which are accrued daily. The determination
of NAV of the Fund for a particular day is applicable to all applications for the purchase of shares, as well as all requests for
the redemption of shares, received by the Fund (or an authorized broker or agent, or its authorized designee) before the close
of trading on the NYSE on that day.

Generally, securities are
valued each day at the last quoted sales price on each security’s principal exchange. Securities traded or dealt in upon
one or more securities exchanges (whether domestic or foreign) for which market quotations are readily available and not subject
to restrictions against resale shall be valued at the last quoted sales price on the primary exchange or, in the absence of a sale
on the primary exchange, the mean between the current bid and ask prices on such exchange. Securities primarily traded in the National
Association of Securities Dealers’ Automated Quotation System (“NASDAQ”) National Market System for which market
quotations are readily available shall be valued using the NASDAQ Official Closing Price. Securities that are not traded or dealt
in any securities exchange (whether domestic or foreign) and for which over-the-counter market quotations are readily available
generally shall be valued at the last sale price or, in the absence of a sale, at the mean between the current bid and ask price
on such over-the- counter market. Debt securities not traded on an exchange may be valued at prices supplied by a pricing agent(s)
based on broker or dealer supplied valuations or matrix pricing, a method of valuing securities by reference to the value of other
securities with similar characteristics, such as rating, interest rate and maturity.

If market quotations are not
readily available, securities will be valued at their fair market value as determined using the “fair value” procedures
approved by the Board. Fair value pricing involves subjective judgments and it is possible that the fair value determined for a
security may be materially different than the value that could be realized upon the sale of that security. The fair value prices
can differ from market prices when they become available or when a price becomes available. The Board has delegated execution of
these procedures to a fair value committee composed of one or more representatives from each of the (i) Trust, (ii) administrator,
and (iii) adviser or sub-adviser. The committee may also enlist third party consultants such as an audit firm or financial officer
of a security issuer on an as-needed basis to assist in determining a security-specific fair value. The Board reviews and ratifies
the execution of this process and the resultant fair value prices at least quarterly to assure the process produces reliable results.

The Fund may use independent pricing services
to assist in calculating the value of the Fund’s securities. If events materially affecting the value of a security in the
Fund’s portfolio occur before the Fund prices its shares, the security will be valued at fair value. For example, if trading
in a portfolio security is halted and does not resume before the Fund calculates its NAV, the adviser or sub-adviser may need to
price the security using the Fund’s fair value pricing guidelines. Without a fair value price, short-term traders could take
advantage of the arbitrage opportunity and dilute the NAV of long-term investors. Fair valuation of the Fund’s portfolio
securities can serve to reduce arbitrage opportunities available to short-term traders, but there is no assurance that fair value
pricing policies will prevent dilution of the Fund’s NAV by short-term traders.

CREDIT UNIONS

The Fund is primarily offered to state and federally
chartered banks and credit unions. Fund shares are designed to qualify as eligible investments for federally chartered credit unions
pursuant to Sections 107(7), 107(8) and 107(15) of the Federal Credit Union Act, Part 703 of the NCUA Rules and Regulations and
NCUA Letter Number 155. Shares of the Fund, however, may or may not qualify as eligible investments for particular state chartered
credit unions. The Fund encourages each state chartered credit union to consult qualified legal counsel concerning whether the
Fund is a permissible investment under applicable laws. The Fund intends to review changes in the applicable laws, rules and regulations
governing eligible investments for federally chartered credit unions, and to take such action, if in the best interests of the
Fund and shareholders, as may be necessary so that an investment in the Fund qualifies as an eligible investment under the Federal
Credit Union Act and the regulations thereunder.

Redemptions by Telephone:
The telephone redemption privilege is automatically available to all new accounts.
If you do not want the telephone redemption privilege, you must indicate this in the appropriate area on your account application
or you must write to the Fund and instruct it to remove this privilege from your account.

The proceeds will be wired directly to your
existing account in a bank or brokerage firm in the United States as designated on your application. To redeem by telephone, call
(855) 881-2380.

The Fund reserves the right to suspend the telephone
redemption privileges with respect to your account if the name(s) or the address on the account has been changed within the previous
30 days. Neither the Fund, the transfer agent, nor their respective affiliates will be liable for complying with telephone instructions
they reasonably believe to be genuine or for any loss, damage, cost or expenses in acting on such telephone instructions and you
will be required to bear the risk of any such loss. The Fund or the transfer agent, or both, will employ reasonable procedures
to determine that telephone instructions are genuine. If the Fund and/or the transfer agent do not employ these procedures, they
may be liable to you for losses due to unauthorized or fraudulent instructions. These procedures may include, among others, requiring
forms of personal identification prior to acting upon telephone instructions, providing written confirmation of the transactions
and/or tape recording telephone instructions.

Redemptions through Broker:
If shares of the Fund are held by a broker-dealer, financial institution or other servicing agent, you must contact that servicing
agent to redeem shares of the Fund. The servicing agent may charge a fee for this service.

Redemptions by Wire:
You may request that your redemption proceeds be wired directly to your bank account. The Fund’s transfer agent imposes
a $15 fee for each wire redemption and deducts the fee directly from your account. Your bank may impose a fee for the incoming
wire.

When Redemptions are Sent: Once the Fund
receives your redemption request in “good order” as described below, it will make payment by wire transfer on the next
determined NAV following your redemption request.

Good Order: Your redemption request
        will be processed if it is in “good order.” To be in “good order,” the following conditions must be satisfied:

·
The request should be in writing, unless redeeming by telephone,
        indicating the number of shares or dollar amount to be redeemed;

·
the request must identify your account number;

·
the request should be signed by you and any other person listed
on the account, exactly as the shares are registered; et

·
if you request that the redemption proceeds be sent to a person,
        bank or an address other than that of record or paid to someone other than the record owner(s), or if the address was changed within
        the last 30 days, or if the proceeds of a requested redemption exceed $50,000 for any investor that is not a regulated, U.S. based
        depository institution, the signature(s) on the request must be medallion signature guaranteed by an eligible signature guarantor.

When You Need Medallion Signature Guarantees:
If you wish to change the bank or brokerage account that you have designated on your account, you may do so at any time by
writing to the Fund with your signature guaranteed. A medallion signature guarantee assures that a signature is genuine and protects
you from unauthorized account transfers. You will need your signature guaranteed if:

· you request a redemption to be made payable
to a person not on record with the Fund,
· you request that a redemption be mailed
to an address other than that on record with the Fund,
· the proceeds of a requested redemption
exceed $50,000 for any investor that is not a regulated, U.S. based depository institution,
· any redemption is transmitted by federal
wire transfer to a bank other than the bank of record, or
· your address was changed within 30 days
of your redemption request.

Signatures may be guaranteed by any eligible
guarantor institution (including banks, brokers and dealers, credit unions, national securities exchanges, registered securities
associations, clearing agencies and savings associations). Further documentation will be required to change the designated account
if shares are held by a corporation, fiduciary or other organization. The Fund reserves the right to waive any medallion signature
guarantee requirement. A notary public cannot guarantee signatures.

Low Balances: If at any time your account
balance in the Fund falls below $2,000,000, the Fund may notify you that, unless the account is brought up to at least $2,000,000
within 60 days of the notice; your account could be closed. After the notice period, the Fund may redeem all of your shares and
close your account by sending you a wire to the bank of record. Your account will not be closed if the account balance drops below
$2,000,000 due to a decline in NAV. The Fund will not charge any redemption fee on involuntary redemptions.

FREQUENT PURCHASES AND REDEMPTIONS OF
FUND SHARES

The Fund discourages and does not accommodate
market timing. Frequent trading into and out of the Fund can harm all Fund shareholders by disrupting the Fund’s investment
strategies, increasing Fund expenses, decreasing tax efficiency and diluting the value of shares held by long-term shareholders.
The Fund is designed for long-term investors and is not intended for market timing or other disruptive trading activities. Eszerint,
the Board has approved policies that seek to curb these disruptive activities while recognizing that shareholders may have a legitimate
need to adjust their Fund investments as their financial needs or circumstances change. The Fund may assess a redemption fee of
0.25% of the total redemption amount if shareholders sell their shares after holding them for less than 30 days. Additionally,
the Fund currently uses several other methods to reduce the risk of market timing. These methods include:

· Committing staff to review, on a continuing
basis, recent trading activity in order to identify trading activity that may be contrary to the Fund’s “Market Timing
Trading Policy,”
· Rejecting or limiting specific purchase
requests,
· Rejecting purchase requests from certain
investors, and
· Assessing a redemption fee for short-term
trading.

Though these methods involve judgments that
are inherently subjective and involve some selectivity in their application, the Fund seeks to make judgments and applications
that are consistent with the interests of the Fund’s shareholders.

Based on the frequency of redemptions in your
account, the adviser or transfer agent may in its sole discretion determine that your trading activity is detrimental to the Fund
as described in the Fund’s Market Timing Trading Policy and elect to reject or limit the amount, number, frequency or method
for requesting future purchases or exchanges into the Fund.

The Fund reserves the right to reject or
restrict purchase requests for any reason, particularly when the shareholder’s trading activity suggests that the shareholder
may be engaged in market timing or other disruptive trading activities. Neither the Fund, nor the adviser, or subadviser will,
be liable for any losses resulting from rejected purchase orders. The adviser may also bar an investor who has violated these policies
(and the investor’s financial adviser) from opening new accounts with the Fund.

Although the Fund attempts to limit disruptive
trading activities, some investors may use a variety of strategies to hide their identities and their trading practices. Ott
can be no guarantee that the Fund will be able to identify or limit these activities.

TAX STATUS, DIVIDENDS AND DISTRIBUTIONS

Any sale or exchange of the Fund’s shares
may generate tax liability (unless you are a tax-exempt investor). When you redeem your shares you may realize a taxable gain or
loss. This is measured by the difference between the proceeds of the sale and the tax basis for the shares you sold. (To aid in
computing your tax basis, you generally should retain your account statements for the period that you hold shares in the Fund.)

The Fund intends to distribute substantially
all of its net investment income monthly and net capital gains annually in December. Both distributions will be reinvested in shares
of the Fund unless you elect to receive cash. Dividends from net investment income (including any excess of net short-term capital
gain over net long-term capital loss) are taxable to investors as ordinary income, while distributions of net capital gain (the
excess of net long-term capital gain over net short-term capital loss) are generally taxable as long-term capital gain, regardless
of your holding period for the shares. Any dividends or capital gain distributions you receive from the Fund will normally be taxable
to you when made, regardless of whether you reinvest dividends or capital gain distributions or receive them in cash. Certain dividends
or distributions declared in October, November or December will be taxed to shareholders as if received in December if they are
paid during the following January. Each year the Fund will inform you of the amount and type of your distributions.

Your redemptions, including exchanges, may result
in a capital gain or loss for federal tax purposes. A capital gain or loss on your investment is the difference between the cost
of your shares, including any sales charges, and the amount you receive when you sell them.

On the account application, you will be asked
to certify that your social security number or taxpayer identification number is correct and that you are not subject to backup
withholding for failing to report income to the IRS. If you are subject to backup withholding or you did not certify your taxpayer
identification number, the IRS requires the Fund to withhold a percentage of any dividend, redemption or exchange proceeds. la
Fund reserves the right to reject any application that does not include a certified social security or taxpayer identification
number. If you do not have a social security number, you should indicate on the purchase form that your application to obtain a
number is pending. The Fund is required to withhold taxes if a number is not delivered to the Fund within seven days.

This summary is not intended to be and should
not be construed to be legal or tax advice. You should consult your own tax advisors to determine the tax consequences of owning
the Fund’s shares.

DISTRIBUTION OF SHARES

Distribution Fees: The Trust, with respect
to the Fund, has adopted the Trust’s Master Distribution and Shareholder Servicing Plan (“12b-1 Plan” or “Plan”),
pursuant to Rule 12b-1 of the 1940 Act which allows the Fund to pay the Fund’s adviser an annual fee for distribution and
shareholder servicing expenses of up to 0.10% of the Fund’s average daily net assets.

The Fund’s adviser and other entities
are paid pursuant to the Plan for services provided and the expenses borne by the adviser and others in the distribution of Fund
shares, including the payment of commissions for sales of the shares and incentive compensation to and expenses of dealers and
others who engage in or support distribution of shares or who service shareholder accounts, including overhead and telephone expenses;
printing and distribution of prospectuses and reports used in connection with the offering of the Fund’s shares to other
than current shareholders; and preparation, printing and distribution of sales literature and advertising materials. In addition,
the adviser or other entities may utilize fees paid pursuant to the Plan to compensate dealers or other entities for their opportunity
costs in advancing such amounts, which compensation would be in the form of a carrying charge on any un-reimbursed expenses.

You should be aware that if you hold your shares
for a substantial period of time, you may indirectly pay more than the economic equivalent of the maximum front-end sales charge
allowed by FINRA due to the recurring nature of distribution (12b-1) fees.

Additional Compensation to Financial Intermediaries:
The Fund’s adviser and its affiliates may each, at its own expense and out of its own legitimate profits, provide additional
cash payments to financial intermediaries who sell shares of the Fund. Financial intermediaries include brokers, financial planners,
banks, insurance companies, retirement or 401(k) plan administrators and others. These payments are generally made to financial
intermediaries that provide shareholder or administrative services, or marketing support. Marketing support may include access
to sales meetings, sales representatives and financial intermediary management representatives, inclusion of the Fund on a sales
list, including a preferred or select sales list, or other sales programs. These payments also may be made as an expense reimbursement
in cases where the financial intermediary provides shareholder services to Fund shareholders. The Fund’s adviser may, from
time to time, provide promotional incentives, including reallowance and/or payment of up to the entire sales charge, to certain
investment firms. Such incentives may, at the adviser’s discretion, be limited to investment firms who allow their individual
selling representatives to participate in such additional commissions.

Householding: To reduce expenses, the
Fund mails only one copy of the Prospectus and each annual and semi-annual report to those addresses shared by two or more accounts.
If you wish to receive individual copies of these documents, please call the Fund at (855) 881-2380 on days when the Fund is open
for business or contact your financial institution. The Fund will begin sending you individual copies thirty days after receiving
your request.

APPENDIX A –SUB-ADVISER'S PROXY VOTING POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

THE FUND

The Fund is a series of
Northern Lights Fund Trust, a Delaware statutory trust organized on January 19, 2005 (the “Trust”).  The Trust
is registered as an open-end management investment company.  The Trust is governed by its Board of Trustees (the “Board”
or “Trustees”).

The Fund may issue an unlimited
number of shares, in classes, of beneficial interest.  All shares of the Fund have equal rights and privileges within their
respective class.  Each share of the Fund is entitled to one vote on all matters as to which shares are entitled to vote by
class or without distinction as to class.  In addition, each share of the Fund is entitled to participate equally, by class,
with other shares (i) in dividends and distributions declared by the Fund and (ii) on liquidation to its proportionate share of
the assets remaining after satisfaction of outstanding liabilities.  Shares of the Fund are fully paid, non-assessable and
fully transferable when issued and have no pre-emptive, conversion or exchange rights.  Fractional shares have proportionately
the same rights, including voting rights, as are provided for a full share.

The Fund is a diversified
series of the Trust offering one class of shares. TransWestern Capital Advisors (the “Adviser”) is the Fund’s
investment adviser and Loomis, Sayles & Company, L.P. (“Sub-adviser”) is the Fund's Sub-adviser.  The Fund’s
investment objective, restrictions and policies are more fully described here and in the Prospectus.  The Board may start
other series and offer shares of a new fund under the Trust at any time.  The Board of Trustees may classify and reclassify
the shares of the Fund into additional classes at a future date.

Under the Trust’s
Agreement and Declaration of Trust, each Trustee will continue in office until the termination of the Trust or his/her earlier
death, incapacity, resignation or removal.  Shareholders can remove a Trustee to the extent provided by the Investment Company
Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”) and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. Vacancies may be filled
by a majority of the remaining Trustees, except insofar as the 1940 Act may require the election by shareholders.  As a result,
normally no annual or regular meetings of shareholders will be held unless matters arise requiring a vote of shareholders under
the Agreement and Declaration of Trust or the 1940 Act.

TYPES OF INVESTMENTS

The investment objective
of the Fund and a description of its principal investment strategies are set forth under “Risk/Return Summary” in the
Prospectus.  The Fund’s investment objective is “fundamental” and may not be changed without the approval
of a majority of its outstanding voting securities.

The following information
describes securities in which the Fund may invest.

Fixed Income Debt Securities

Yields on fixed income
securities (also commonly referred to as bills, notes and/or bonds) are dependent on a variety of factors, including the general
conditions of the money market and other fixed income securities markets, the size of a particular offering, the maturity of the
obligation and the rating of the issue. An investment in the Fund will be subjected to risk even if all fixed income securities
in the Fund's portfolio are paid in full at maturity. All fixed income securities, including U.S. Government securities, can change
in value when there is a change in interest rates or the issuer's actual or perceived creditworthiness or ability to meet its obligations.

There is normally an inverse
relationship between the market value of securities sensitive to prevailing interest rates and actual changes in interest rates.
In other words, an increase in interest rates produces a decrease in market value. The longer the remaining maturity (and duration)
of a security, the greater will be the effect of interest rate changes on the market value of that security. Changes in the ability
of an issuer to make payments of interest and principal and in the market’s perception of an issuer's creditworthiness will
also affect the market value of the debt securities of that issuer. Obligations of issuers of fixed income securities are subject
to the provisions of bankruptcy, insolvency, and other laws affecting the rights and remedies of creditors, such as the Federal
Bankruptcy Reform Act of 1978.  Changes in the ability of an issuer to make payments of interest and principal and in the
market's perception of an issuer's creditworthiness will also affect the market value of the debt securities of that issuer. la
possibility exists, therefore, that, the ability of any issuer to pay, when due, the principal of and interest on its debt securities
may become impaired.

The following describes
some of the risks associated with fixed income debt securities:

Interest Rate Risk.
Debt securities have varying levels of sensitivity to changes in interest rates. In general, the price of a debt security can fall
when interest rates rise and can rise when interest rates fall. Securities with longer maturities and mortgage securities can be
more sensitive to interest rate changes although they usually offer higher yields to compensate investors for the greater risks.
The longer the maturity of the security, the greater the impact a change in interest rates could have on the security's price.
In addition, short-term and long-term interest rates do not necessarily move in the same amount or the same direction. Short-term
securities tend to react to changes in short-term interest rates and long-term securities tend to react to changes in long-term
interest rates.

Credit Risk. Rögzített
income securities may have speculative characteristics and changes in economic conditions or other circumstances are more likely
to lead to a weakened capacity of issuers to make principal or interest payments, as compared to issuers of more highly rated securities.

Extension Risk.
The Fund is subject to the risk that an issuer will exercise its right to pay principal on an obligation held by the Fund (such
as mortgage-backed securities) later than expected. This may happen when there is a rise in interest rates. These events may lengthen
the duration (i.e. interest rate sensitivity) and potentially reduce the value of these securities.

Prepayment Risk.
Certain types of debt securities, such as mortgage-backed securities, have yield and maturity characteristics corresponding to
underlying assets. Unlike traditional debt securities, which may pay a fixed rate of interest until maturity when the entire principal
amount comes due, payments on certain mortgage-backed securities may include both interest and a partial payment of principal.
Besides the scheduled repayment of principal, payments of principal may result from the voluntary prepayment, refinancing, or foreclosure
of the underlying mortgage loans.

Securities subject to prepayment
are less effective than other types of securities as a means of "locking in" attractive long-term interest rates. Egy
reason is the need to reinvest prepayments of principal; another is the possibility of significant unscheduled prepayments resulting
from declines in interest rates. These prepayments would have to be reinvested at lower rates. As a result, these securities may
have less potential for capital appreciation during periods of declining interest rates than other securities of comparable maturities,
although they may have a similar risk of decline in market value during periods of rising interest rates. Prepayments may also
significantly shorten the effective maturities of these securities, especially during periods of declining interest rates. Conversely,
during periods of rising interest rates, a reduction in prepayments may increase the effective maturities of these securities,
subjecting them to a greater risk of decline in market value in response to rising interest rates than traditional debt securities,
and, therefore, potentially increasing the volatility of the Fund.

At times, some of the mortgage-backed
securities in which the Fund may invest will have higher than market interest rates and therefore will be purchased at a premium
above their par value. Prepayments may cause losses in securities purchased at a premium, as unscheduled prepayments, which are
made at par, will cause the Fund to experience a loss equal to any unamortized premium.

United States Government
Obligations

These consist of various
types of marketable securities issued by the United States Treasury, i.e., bills, notes and bonds. Such securities are direct obligations
of the United States government and differ mainly in the length of their maturity. Treasury bills, the most frequently issued marketable
government security, have a maturity of up to one year and are issued on a discount basis. The Fund may also invest in Treasury
Inflation-Protected Securities (“
TIPS”).  TIPS are special types of treasury bonds that were created in order to offer bond investors protection from
inflation.  The values of the TIPS are automatically adjusted to the inflation rate as measured by the Consumer Price Index
(“CPI”).  If the CPI goes up by half a percent, the value of the bond (the TIPS) would also go up by half a percent.
 If the CPI falls, the value of the bond does not fall because the government guarantees that the original investment will
stay the same. TIPS decline in value when real interest rates rise.  However, in certain interest rate environments, such
as when real interest rates are rising faster than nominal interest rates, TIPS may experience greater losses than other fixed
income securities with similar duration.

United States Government
Agency

These consist of debt securities
issued by agencies and instrumentalities of the United States government, including the various types of instruments currently
outstanding or which may be offered in the future. Agencies include, among others, the Federal Housing Administration, Government
National Mortgage Association ("GNMA"), Farmer's Home Administration, Export-Import Bank of the United States, Maritime
Administration, and General Services Administration. Instrumentalities include, for example, each of the Federal Home Loan Banks,
the National Bank for Cooperatives, the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation ("FHLMC" or "Freddie Mac"),
the Farm Credit Banks, the Federal National Mortgage Association ("FNMA" or "Fannie Mae"), and the United States
Postal Service. These securities are either: (i) backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government (e.g., United
States Treasury Bills); (ii) guaranteed by the United States Treasury (e.g., GNMA mortgage-backed securities); (iii) supported
by the issuing agency's or instrumentality's right to borrow from the United States Treasury (e.g., FNMA Discount Notes); or (iv)
supported only by the issuing agency's or instrumentality's own credit (e.g., Tennessee Valley Authority).

On September 7, 2008, the
U.S. Treasury Department and the Federal Housing Finance Authority (the “FHFA”) announced that Fannie Mae and Freddie
Mac had been placed into conservatorship, a statutory process designed to stabilize a troubled institution with the objective of
returning the entity to normal business operations.  The U.S. Treasury Department and the FHFA at the same time established
a secured lending facility and a Secured Stock Purchase Agreement with both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to ensure that each entity
had the ability to fulfill its financial obligations.  The FHFA announced that it does not anticipate any disruption in pattern
of payments or ongoing business operations of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.

Government-related guarantors
(i.e., not backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government) include FNMA and FHLMC. FNMA is a government-sponsored
corporation owned entirely by private stockholders. It is subject to general regulation by the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
FNMA purchases conventional (i.e., not insured or guaranteed by any government agency) residential mortgages from a list of approved
seller/servicers which include state and federally chartered savings and loan associations, mutual savings banks, commercial banks
and credit unions and mortgage bankers. Pass-through securities issued by FNMA are guaranteed as to timely payment of principal
and interest by FNMA but are not backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government.

FHLMC was created by Congress
in 1970 for the purpose of increasing the availability of mortgage credit for residential housing. It is a government-sponsored
corporation formerly owned by the twelve Federal Home Loan Banks and now owned entirely by private stockholders. FHLMC issues Participation
Certificates (“PCs”), which represent interests in conventional mortgages from FHLMC’s national portfolio. FHLMC
guarantees the timely payment of interest and ultimate collection of principal, but PCs are not backed by the full faith and credit
of the United States Government. Commercial banks, savings and loan institutions, private mortgage insurance companies, mortgage
bankers and other secondary market issuers also create pass-through pools of conventional residential mortgage loans. Such issuers
may, in addition, be the originators and/or servicers of the underlying mortgage loans as well as the guarantors of the mortgage-related
securities. Pools created by such nongovernmental issuers generally offer a higher rate of interest than government and government-related
pools because there are no direct or indirect government or agency guarantees of payments in the former pools. However, timely
payment of interest and principal of these pools may be supported by various forms of insurance or guarantees, including individual
loan, title, pool and hazard insurance and letters of credit. The insurance and guarantees are issued by governmental entities,
private insurers and the mortgage poolers.

Mortgage Pass-Through
Securities

Interests in pools of mortgage
pass-through securities differ from other forms of debt securities (which normally provide periodic payments of interest in fixed
amounts and the payment of principal in a lump sum at maturity or on specified call dates). Instead, mortgage pass-through securities
provide monthly payments consisting of both interest and principal payments. In effect, these payments are a “pass-through”
of the monthly payments made by the individual borrowers on the underlying residential mortgage loans, net of any fees paid to
the issuer or guarantor of such securities. Unscheduled payments of principal may be made if the underlying mortgage loans are
repaid or refinanced or the underlying properties are foreclosed, thereby shortening the securities’ weighted average life.
Some mortgage pass-through securities (such as securities guaranteed by GNMA) are described as “modified pass-through securities.”
These securities entitle the holder to receive all interest and principal payments owed on the mortgage pool, net of certain fees,
on the scheduled payment dates regardless of whether the mortgagor actually makes the payment.

The principal governmental
guarantor of mortgage pass-through securities is GNMA. GNMA is authorized to guarantee, with the full faith and credit of the U.S.
Treasury, the timely payment of principal and interest on securities issued by lending institutions approved by GNMA (such as savings
and loan institutions, commercial banks and mortgage bankers) and backed by pools of mortgage loans. These mortgage loans are either
insured by the Federal Housing Administration or guaranteed by the Veterans Administration. A “pool” or group of such
mortgage loans is assembled and after being approved by GNMA, is offered to investors through securities dealers.

Government-related guarantors
of mortgage pass-through securities (i.e., not backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Treasury) include FNMA and FHLMC.
FNMA is a government-sponsored corporation owned entirely by private stockholders. It is subject to general regulation by the Secretary
of Housing and Urban Development. FNMA purchases conventional (i.e., not insured or guaranteed by any government agency) residential
mortgages from a list of approved sellers/servicers which include state and federally chartered savings and loan associations,
mutual savings banks, commercial banks and credit unions and mortgage bankers. Mortgage pass-through securities issued by FNMA
are guaranteed as to timely payment of principal and interest by FNMA but are not backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S.
Treasury.

Commercial banks, savings
and loan institutions, private mortgage insurance companies, mortgage bankers and other secondary market issuers also create pass-through
pools of conventional residential mortgage loans. Such issuers may, in addition, be the originators and/or servicers of the underlying
mortgage loans as well as the guarantors of the mortgage pass-through securities. The Fund does not purchase interests in pools
created by such non-governmental issuers.

Resets. The interest
rates paid on the Adjustable Rate Mortgage Securities (“ARMs”) in which the Fund may invest generally are readjusted
or reset at intervals of one year or less to an increment over some predetermined interest rate index. There are two main categories
of indices: those based on U.S. Treasury securities and those derived from a calculated measure, such as a cost of funds index
or a moving average of mortgage rates. Commonly utilized indices include the one-year and five-year constant maturity Treasury
Note rates, the three-month Treasury Bill rate, the 180-day Treasury Bill rate, rates on longer-term Treasury securities, the National
Median Cost of Funds, the one-month or three-month London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR), the prime rate of a specific bank, or
commercial paper rates. Some indices, such as the one-year constant maturity Treasury Note rate, closely mirror changes in market
interest rate levels. Others tend to lag changes in market rate levels and tend to be somewhat less volatile.

Caps and Floors.
The underlying mortgages which collateralize the ARMs in which the Fund invests will frequently have caps and floors which limit
the maximum amount by which the loan rate to the residential borrower may change up or down: (1) per reset or adjustment interval,
and (2) over the life of the loan. Some residential mortgage loans restrict periodic adjustments by limiting changes in the borrower’s
monthly principal and interest payments rather than limiting interest rate changes. These payment caps may result in negative amortization.
The value of mortgage securities in which the Fund invests may be affected if market interest rates rise or fall faster and farther
than the allowable caps or floors on the underlying residential mortgage loans. Additionally, even though the interest rates on
the underlying residential mortgages are adjustable, amortization and prepayments may occur, thereby causing the effective maturities
of the mortgage securities in which the Fund invests to be shorter than the maturities stated in the underlying mortgages.

Regulation as a Commodity Pool Operator

The Trust, on behalf of the Fund, has filed
with the National Futures Association, a notice claiming an exclusion from the definition of the term "commodity pool operator"
under the Commodity Exchange Act, as amended, and the rules of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission promulgated thereunder,
with respect to the Fund's operations.  Accordingly, the Fund is not subject to registration or regulation as a commodity
pool operator.

When-Issued, Forward Commitments and Delayed
Settlements

The Fund may purchase and
sell securities on a when-issued, forward commitment or delayed settlement basis. In this event, the Custodian (as defined under
the section entitled “Custodian”) will segregate liquid assets equal to the amount of the commitment in a separate
account. Normally, the Custodian will set aside portfolio securities to satisfy a purchase commitment. In such a case, the Fund
may be required subsequently to segregate additional assets in order to assure that the value of the account remains equal to the
amount of the Fund’s commitment. It may be expected that the Fund's net assets will fluctuate to a greater degree when it
sets aside portfolio securities to cover such purchase commitments than when it sets aside cash.

The Fund does not intend
to engage in these transactions for speculative purposes but only in furtherance of its investment objectives. Because the Fund
will segregate liquid assets to satisfy its purchase commitments in the manner described, the Fund’s liquidity and the ability
of the Adviser to manage them may be affected in the event the Fund’s forward commitments, commitments to purchase when-issued
securities and delayed settlements ever exceeded 15% of the value of its net assets.

The Fund will purchase
securities on a when-issued, forward commitment or delayed settlement basis only with the intention of completing the transaction.
If deemed advisable as a matter of investment strategy, however, the Fund may dispose of or renegotiate a commitment after it is
entered into, and may sell securities it has committed to purchase before those securities are delivered to the Fund on the settlement
date. In these cases the Fund may realize a taxable capital gain or loss. When the Fund engages in when-issued, forward commitment
and delayed settlement transactions, it relies on the other party to consummate the trade. Failure of such party to do so may result
in the Fund incurring a loss or missing an opportunity to obtain a price credited to be advantageous.

The market value of the
securities underlying a when-issued purchase, forward commitment to purchase securities, or a delayed settlement and any subsequent
fluctuations in their market value is taken into account when determining the market value of the Fund starting on the day the
Fund agrees to purchase the securities. The Fund does not earn interest on the securities it has committed to purchase until it
has paid for and delivered on the settlement date.

INVESTMENT RESTRICTIONS

The Fund has adopted the
following investment restrictions that may not be changed without approval by a “majority of the outstanding shares”
of the Fund which, as used in this SAI, means the vote of the lesser of (a) 67% or more of the shares of the Fund represented at
a meeting, if the holders of more than 50% of the outstanding shares of the Fund are present or represented by proxy, or (b) more
than 50% of the outstanding shares of the Fund.

premier Borrowing Money.
 The Fund will not borrow money, except:  (a) from a bank, provided that immediately after such borrowing there is an
asset coverage of 300% for all borrowings of the Fund; or (b) from a bank or other persons for temporary purposes only, provided
that such temporary borrowings are in an amount not exceeding 5% of the Fund’s total assets at the time when the borrowing
is made.

deuxième Senior Securities.
 The Fund will not issue senior securities.  This limitation is not applicable to activities that may be deemed to involve
the issuance or sale of a senior security by the Fund, provided that the Fund’s engagement in such activities is consistent
with or permitted by the 1940 Act, as amended, the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder or interpretations of the Securities
and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) or its staff.

troisième Underwriting.
 The Fund will not act as underwriter of securities issued by other persons.  This limitation is not applicable to the
extent that, in connection with the disposition of portfolio securities (including restricted securities), the Fund may be deemed
an underwriter under certain federal securities laws.

4 Real Estate.
 The Fund will not purchase or sell real estate.  This limitation is not applicable to investments in marketable securities
that are secured by or represent interests in real estate.

5 Commodities.
 The Fund will not purchase or sell commodities unless acquired as a result of ownership of securities or other investments.

6 Loans. la
Fund will not make loans to other persons, except:  (a) by loaning portfolio securities; (b) by engaging in repurchase agreements;
or (c) by purchasing nonpublicly offered debt securities.  For purposes of this limitation, the term “loans” shall
not include the purchase of a portion of an issue of publicly distributed bonds, debentures or other securities.

7 Concentration.
 The Fund will not invest 25% or more of its total assets in a particular industry or group of industries.  This limitation
is not applicable to investments in obligations issued or guaranteed by the U.S. government, its agencies and instrumentalities
or repurchase agreements with respect thereto.

8 Investment Objective.
 The Fund seeks to provide income consistent with liquidity, and limited credit and interest rate risk.

9 Government Bond Investment
Policy
. The Fund invests 100% of its assets in liquid, high-quality fixed and variable rate U.S. government bonds, as
defined in the Fund's prospectus and cash and cash equivalents.

THE FOLLOWING ARE ADDITIONAL INVESTMENT
LIMITATIONS OF THE FUND. THE FOLLOWING RESTRICTIONS ARE DESIGNATED AS NON-FUNDAMENTAL AND MAY BE CHANGED BY THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES
OF THE TRUST WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF SHAREHOLDERS.

premier Pledging. la
Fund will not mortgage, pledge, hypothecate or in any manner transfer, as security for indebtedness, any assets of the Fund except
as may be necessary in connection with borrowings described in limitation (1) above.  Margin deposits, security interests,
liens and collateral arrangements with respect to transactions involving permitted investments and techniques are not deemed to
be a mortgage, pledge or hypothecation of assets for purposes of this limitation.

deuxième Borrowing. la
Fund will not purchase any security while borrowings representing more than one third of its total assets are outstanding.

troisième Margin Purchases.
 The Fund will not purchase securities or evidences of interest thereon on “margin.”  This limitation is
not applicable to short-term credit obtained by the Fund for the clearance of purchases and sales or redemption of securities,
or to arrangements with respect to transactions involving other permitted investment techniques.

4 Illiquid Investments.
 The Fund will not invest 15% or more of its net assets in securities for which there are legal or contractual restrictions
on resale and other illiquid securities.

If a restriction on the
Fund’s investments is adhered to at the time an investment is made, a subsequent change in the percentage of Fund assets
invested in certain securities or other instruments, or change in average duration of the Fund’s investment portfolio, resulting
from changes in the value of the Fund’s total assets, will not be considered a violation of the restriction; provided, however,
that the asset coverage requirement applicable to borrowings shall be maintained in the manner contemplated by applicable law.

POLICIES AND PROCEDURES FOR DISCLOSURE OF
PORTFOLIO HOLDINGS

The Trust has adopted policies
and procedures that govern the disclosure of the Fund's portfolio holdings. These policies and procedures are designed to ensure
that such disclosure is in the best interests of Fund shareholders.

MANAGEMENT

The business of the
Trust is managed under the direction of the Board in accordance with the Agreement and Declaration of Trust and the Trust’s
By-laws (the “Governing Documents”), which have been filed with the SEC and are available upon request.  The Board
consists of six (6) individuals, all of whom are not “interested persons” (as defined under the 1940 Act) of the Trust
and the Adviser (“Independent Trustees”).  Pursuant to the Governing Documents of the Trust, the Trustees shall
elect officers including a President, a Secretary, a Treasurer, a Principal Executive Officer and a Principal Accounting Officer.
 The Board retains the power to conduct, operate and carry on the business of the Trust and has the power to incur and pay
any expenses, which, in the opinion of the Board, are necessary or incidental to carry out any of the Trust’s purposes. la
Trustees, officers, employees and agents of the Trust, when acting in such capacities, shall not be subject to any personal liability
except for his or her own bad faith, willful misfeasance, gross negligence or reckless disregard of his or her duties.

Board Leadership Structure

The Trust is led by Anthony
Hertl, an Independent Trustee, who has served as the Chairman of the Board since July 2013. The Board of Trustees is comprised
of Mr. Hertl and, five (5) additional Independent Trustees. Additionally, under certain 1940 Act governance guidelines that apply
to the Trust, the Independent Trustees will meet in executive session, at least quarterly. Under the Trust’s Agreement and
Declaration of Trust and By-Laws, the Chairman of the Board is responsible for (a) presiding at board meetings, (b) calling special
meetings on an as-needed basis, (c) execution and administration of Trust policies including (i) setting the agendas for board
meetings and (ii) providing information to board members in advance of each board meeting and between board meetings. Generally,
the Trust believes it best to have a non-executive Chairman of the Board, who together with the President (principal executive
officer), are seen by our shareholders, business partners and other stakeholders as providing strong leadership. The Trust believes
that its Chairman, the independent chair of the Audit Committee, and, as an entity, the full Board of Trustees, provide effective
leadership that is in the best interests of the Trust, its Funds and each shareholder.

Board Risk Oversight

The Board of Trustees has
a standing independent Audit Committee with a separate chair, Mark H. Taylor. The Board is responsible for overseeing risk management,
and the full Board regularly engages in discussions of risk management and receives compliance reports that inform its oversight
of risk management from its Chief Compliance Officer at quarterly meetings and on an ad hoc basis, when and if necessary. The Audit
Committee considers financial and reporting risk within its area of responsibilities. Generally, the Board believes that its oversight
of material risks is adequately maintained through the compliance-reporting chain where the Chief Compliance Officer is the primary
recipient and communicator of such risk-related information.

The Sub-Advisory Agreement
provides that it will terminate in the event of its assignment (as defined in the 1940 Act).  The Sub-Advisory Agreement may
be terminated by the Trust, the Adviser, or by vote of a majority of the outstanding voting securities of the Fund, upon written
notice to the Sub-adviser, or by the Sub-adviser upon at least 60 days’ written notice. The Sub-Advisory Agreement provides
that it will continue in effect for a period of more than one year from its execution only so long as such continuance is specifically
approved at least annually in accordance with the requirements of the 1940 Act.

A discussion regarding
the basis for the Board of Trustees’ renewal of the Sub-advisory Agreement is available in the Fund's annual shareholder
report dated December 31, 2018.

Codes of Ethics

The Trust, the Adviser
and the Sub-adviser each have adopted codes of ethics under Rule 17j-1 under the 1940 Act that governs the personal securities
transactions of their board members, officers and employees who may have access to current trading information of the Trust.  Under
the Trust’s Code, the Trustees are permitted to invest in securities that may also be purchased by the Fund.

In addition, the Trust
has adopted a code of ethics, which applies only to the Trust’s executive officers to ensure that these officers promote
professional conduct in the practice of corporate governance and management. The purpose behind these guidelines is to promote
i) honest and ethical conduct, including the ethical handling of actual or apparent conflicts of interest between personal and
professional relationships; ii) full, fair, accurate, timely, and understandable disclosure in reports and documents that a registrant
files with, or submits to, the SEC and in other public communications made by the Fund; iii) compliance with applicable governmental
laws, rule and regulations; iv) the prompt internal reporting of violations of this Code to an appropriate person or persons identified
in the Code; and v) accountability for adherence to the Code.

Proxy Voting Policies

The Board has adopted Proxy
Voting Policies and Procedures (“Policies”) on behalf of the Trust, which delegate the responsibility for voting proxies
of securities held by the Fund to the Sub-adviser subject to the Board’s continuing oversight. The Policies require that
the Sub-adviser vote proxies received in a manner consistent with the best interests of the Fund and its shareholders. la
Policies also require the Adviser (or Sub-adviser) to present to the Board, at least annually, the Sub-adviser’s Proxy Voting
Policies and a record of each proxy voted by the Sub-adviser) on behalf of a Fund, including a report on the resolution of all
proxies identified by the Sub-adviser as involving a conflict of interest.  A copy of the Sub-adviser’s Proxy Voting
Policies is attached hereto as Appendix A.

More information.
 Information regarding how the Fund voted proxies relating to portfolio securities held by the Fund during the most recent
12-month period ended June 30 will be available (1) without charge, upon request, by calling the Fund 1-855-881-2380; and (2) on
the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov.  In addition, a copy of the Fund's proxy voting policies and procedures are

Conflicts of Interest.

As indicated in the table
above, a portfolio manager may manage numerous accounts for multiple clients.  These accounts may include registered investment
companies, other types of pooled accounts (e.g., collective investment funds), and separate accounts (i.e., accounts managed on
behalf of individuals or public or private institutions).  The portfolio manager makes investment decisions for each account
based on the investment objectives and policies and other relevant investment considerations applicable to that account.

When the portfolio manager
has responsibility for managing more than one account, potential conflicts of interest may arise.  Those conflicts could include
preferential treatment of one account over others in terms of allocation of resources or of investment opportunities. For instance,
the Sub-adviser may receive fees from certain accounts that are higher than the fee it receives from the Fund, or it may receive
a performance-based fee on certain accounts. In those instances, the portfolio manager may have an incentive to favor the higher
and/or performance-based fee accounts over the Fund.

When allocating investments
among client accounts, the Sub-adviser has the fiduciary obligation to treat each client equally, regardless of account size or
fees paid.  All clients receives the same average price for each transaction. In the event that a trade is partially completed,
the Sub-adviser will allocate the executed portion of the transaction on a pro rata basis among participating accounts. The participating
accounts will receive the average price and transaction costs will be assessed at the commission rate applicable to each account.
Accounts with directed brokerage arrangements will be traded subsequent to non-directed brokerage accounts.  The Sub-adviser
supplies model portfolios to third party platforms where other advisers may choose to use them in managing their clients’
assets. Models and model changes will be communicated to other platforms on a rotational basis only after the portfolio manager
has communicated these changes to their own internal trading department.

The portfolio managers
receive a salary and while they are not specifically compensated on the size or performance of this individual account, their overall
investment performance for similarly managed accounts is used in determining their annual variable compensation bonus.

ALLOCATION OF PORTFOLIO BROKERAGE

Specific decisions to purchase
or sell securities for the Fund are made by the portfolio managers, who are employees of the Sub-adviser.  The Sub-adviser
is authorized by the Trustees to allocate the orders placed by it on behalf of the Fund to brokers or dealers who may, but need
not, provide research or statistical material or other services to the Fund or the Sub-adviser for the Fund's use. Such allocation
is to be in such amounts and proportions as the Sub-adviser may determine.

In selecting a broker or
dealer to execute each particular transaction, the Sub-adviser will take the following into consideration:

·
the best net price available;

·
the reliability, integrity and financial condition of the broker or dealer;

·
the size of and difficulty in executing the order; et

·
the value of the expected contribution of the broker or dealer to the investment performance of the Fund on a continuing
basis.

Brokers or dealers executing
a portfolio transaction on behalf of the Fund may receive a commission in excess of the amount of commission another broker or
dealer would have charged for executing the transaction if the Sub-adviser determines in good faith that such commission is reasonable
in relation to the value of brokerage, research and other services provided to the Fund. In allocating portfolio brokerage, the
Sub-adviser may select brokers or dealers who also provide brokerage, research and other services to other accounts over which
the Sub-adviser exercises investment discretion. Some of the services received as the result of Fund transactions may primarily
benefit accounts other than the Fund’s, while services received as the result of portfolio transactions effected on behalf
of those other accounts may primarily benefit the Fund. For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016,
the Fund paid brokerage commissions of $0. For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, the Fund paid brokerage commissions of
$0. For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, the Fund paid brokerage commissions of $0.

PORTFOLIO TURNOVER

The Fund’s portfolio
turnover rate is calculated by dividing the lesser of purchases or sales of portfolio securities for the fiscal year by the monthly
average of the value of the portfolio securities owned by the Fund during the fiscal year. The calculation excludes from both the
numerator and the denominator securities with maturities at the time of acquisition of one year or less. High portfolio turnover
involves correspondingly greater brokerage commissions and other transaction costs, which will be borne directly by the Fund. la
100% turnover rate would occur if all of the Fund’s portfolio securities were replaced once within a one-year period. For
the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 133%. For the fiscal year ended December
31, 2018, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 197%.

Act (the "Plan") pursuant to which the Fund is authorized to pay the Adviser, as compensation for Adviser’s combined
account maintenance and distribution fee at the rate of 0.10%, on an annualized basis of the average net assets attributable to
shares of the Fund. Such fees are to be paid by the Fund monthly, or at such other intervals as the Board shall determine. Such
fees shall be based upon the Fund’s average daily net assets during the preceding month, and shall be calculated and accrued
napi. The Fund may pay fees to the Adviser at a lesser rate, as agreed upon by the Board of Trustees of the Trust and the Adviser.

including arranging for certain securities dealers or brokers, administrators and others (“Recipients”) to provide
these services and paying compensation for these services. The Fund will bear its own costs of distribution with respect to its
shares.

amended to increase materially the amount of the Adviser’s compensation to be paid by the Fund, unless such amendment is
approved by the vote of a majority of the outstanding voting securities of the affected class of a Fund (as defined in the 1940
Act). All material amendments must be approved by a majority of the Board of Trustees of the Trust and a majority of the Trustees
of the Fund who are not “interested persons” of the Fund as defined in the 1940 Act, and do not have a direct or indirect
financial interest in the operations of the Plan or any agreements related to it (the “Rule 12b-1 Trustees”) by votes

nomination of non-interested Trustees of the Trust will be committed to the discretion of current non-interested Trustees. la
Trust will preserve copies of the Plan, any related agreements, and all reports, for a period of not less than six years from the
date of such document and for at least the first two years in an easily accessible place.

the Rule 12b-1 Plan will be in writing and provide that: (a) it may be terminated by the Trust or the applicable Fund at any time
upon sixty days’ written notice, without the payment of any penalty, by vote of a majority of the respective Rule 12b-1 Trustees,
or by vote of a majority of the outstanding voting securities of the Trust or the Fund; (b) it will automatically terminate in
the event of its assignment (as defined in the 1940 Act); and (c) it will continue in effect for a period of more than one year
from the date of its execution or adoption only so long as such continuance is specifically approved at least annually by a majority
of the Board and a majority of the Rule 12b-1 Trustees by votes cast in person at a meeting called for the purpose of voting on
such agreement.

ANTI-MONEY LAUNDERING PROGRAM

The Trust has established
an Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Program (the “Program”) as required by Section 352 the Uniting and Strengthening
America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001 (“USA PATRIOT Act”).
To ensure compliance with this law, the Trust’s Program is written and has been approved by the Fund’s Board of Trustees.
 The Program provides for the development of policies, procedures and internal controls reasonably designed to prevent money
laundering, the designation of an anti-money laundering compliance officer who is responsible for implementing and monitoring the
Program, an ongoing anti-money laundering training for appropriate persons and an independent audit function to determine the effectiveness
of the Program.

Procedures to implement
the Program include, but are not limited to, determining that the Transfer Agent has established reasonable anti-money laundering
procedures, have reported suspicious and/or fraudulent activity and have completed and thorough reviews of all new opening account
applications. The Trust will not transact business with any person or entity whose identity cannot be adequately verified under
the provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act.

As a result of the Program,
the Trust may be required to “freeze” the account of a shareholder if the shareholder appears to be involved in suspicious
activity or if certain account information matches information on government lists of known terrorists or other suspicious persons,
or the Trust may be required to transfer the account or proceeds of the account to a governmental agency.

PURCHASE, REDEMPTION AND PRICING OF SHARES

Calculation of Share
Ár

As indicated in the
Prospectus under the heading “How Shares are Priced”, the NAV of the Fund's shares is determined by dividing the total
value of the Fund's portfolio investments and other assets, less any liabilities, by the total number of shares outstanding of
the Fund.

Generally, the Fund’s
domestic securities (including underlying ETFs which hold portfolio securities primarily listed on foreign (non-U.S.) exchanges)
are valued each day at the last quoted sales price on each security’s primary exchange. Securities traded or dealt in upon
one or more securities exchanges for which market quotations are readily available and not subject to restrictions against resale
shall be valued at the last quoted sales price on the primary exchange or, in the absence of a sale on the primary exchange, at
the mean between the current bid and ask prices on such exchange. Securities primarily traded in the National Association of Securities
Dealers’ Automated Quotation System (“NASDAQ”) National Market System for which market quotations are readily
available shall be valued using the NASDAQ Official Closing Price. If market quotations are not readily available, securities will
be valued at their fair market value as determined in good faith by the Fund’s fair value committee in accordance with procedures
approved by the Board and as further described below. Securities that are not traded or dealt in any securities exchange (whether
domestic or foreign) and for which over-the-counter market quotations are readily available generally shall be valued at the last
sale price or, in the absence of a sale, at the mean between the current bid and ask price on such over-the- counter market.

Certain securities or investments
for which daily market quotes are not readily available may be valued, pursuant to guidelines established by the Board, with reference
to other securities or indices. Debt securities not traded on an exchange may be valued at prices supplied by a pricing agent(s)
based on broker or dealer supplied valuations or matrix pricing, a method of valuing securities by reference to the value of other
securities with similar characteristics, such as rating, interest rate and maturity. Short-term investments having a maturity of
60 days or less may be generally valued at amortized cost. Other securities for which market quotes are not readily available are
valued at fair value as determined in good faith by the Board or persons acting at their direction. Swap agreements and other derivatives
are generally valued daily based upon quotations from market makers or by a pricing service in accordance with the valuation procedures
approved by the Board.

Under certain circumstances, the Fund may use
an independent pricing service to calculate the fair market value of foreign equity securities on a daily basis by applying valuation
factors to the last sale price or the mean price as noted above. The fair market values supplied by the independent pricing service
will generally reflect market trading that occurs after the close of the applicable foreign markets of comparable securities or
the value of other instruments that have a strong correlation to the fair-valued securities. The independent pricing service will
also take into account the current relevant currency exchange rate. A security that is fair valued may be valued at a price higher
or lower than actual market quotations or the value determined by other funds using their own fair valuation procedures. Mert
foreign securities may trade on days when Fund shares are not priced, the value of securities held by the Fund can change on days
when Fund shares cannot be redeemed or purchased. In the event that a foreign security’s market quotations are not readily
available or are deemed unreliable (for reasons other than because the foreign exchange on which it trades closed before the Fund’s
calculation of NAV), the security will be valued at its fair market value as determined in good faith by the Fund’s fair
value committee in accordance with procedures approved by the Board as discussed below. Without fair valuation, it is possible
that short-term traders could take advantage of the arbitrage opportunity and dilute the NAV of long-term investors. Fair valuation
of the Fund’s portfolio securities can serve to reduce arbitrage opportunities available to short-term traders, but there
is no assurance that it will prevent dilution of the Fund’s NAV by short-term traders. In addition, because the Fund may
invest in underlying ETFs which hold portfolio securities primarily listed on foreign (non-U.S.) exchanges, and these exchanges
may trade on weekends or other days when the underlying ETFs do not price their shares, the value of these portfolio securities
may change on days when you may not be able to buy or sell Fund shares.

Investments initially valued
in currencies other than the U.S. dollar are converted to U.S. dollars using exchange rates obtained from pricing services. Mint
a result, the NAV of the Fund's shares may be affected by changes in the value of currencies in relation to the U.S. dollar. la
value of securities traded in markets outside the United States or denominated in currencies other than the U.S. dollar may be
affected significantly on a day that the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) is closed and an investor is not able to
purchase, redeem or exchange shares.

Fund shares are valued
at the close of regular trading on the NYSE (normally 4:00 p.m., Eastern time) (the "NYSE Close") on each day that the
NYSE is open. For purposes of calculating the NAV, the Fund normally uses pricing data for domestic equity securities received
shortly after the NYSE Close and does not normally take into account trading, clearances or settlements that take place after the
NYSE Close. Domestic fixed income and foreign securities are normally priced using data reflecting the earlier closing of the principal
markets for those securities. Information that becomes known to the Fund or its agents after the NAV has been calculated on a particular
day will not generally be used to retroactively adjust the price of the security or the NAV determined earlier that day.

When market quotations
are insufficient or not readily available, the Fund may value securities at fair value or estimate their value as determined in
good faith by the Board or its designees, pursuant to procedures approved by the Board. Fair valuation may also be used by the
Board if extraordinary events occur after the close of the relevant market but prior to the NYSE Close.

The Fund may hold securities,
such as private placements, interests in commodity pools, other non-traded securities or temporarily illiquid securities, for which
market quotations are not readily available or are determined to be unreliable. These securities will be valued at their fair market
value as determined using the “fair value” procedures approved by the Board. The Board has delegated execution of these
procedures to a fair value team composed of one of more representatives from each of the (i) Trust, (ii) administrator, and (iii)
Adviser and/or Sub-adviser. The team may also enlist third party consultants such as an audit firm or financial officer of a security
issuer on an as-needed basis to assist in determining a security-specific fair value. The Board reviews and ratifies the execution
of this process and the resultant fair value prices at least quarterly to assure the process produces reliable results.

Fair Value Committee
and Valuation Process
. This committee is composed of one of more representatives from each of the (i) Trust, (ii) administrator,
and (iii) Adviser and/or Sub-adviser. The applicable investments are valued collectively via inputs from each of these groups.
For example, fair value determinations are required for the following securities: (i) securities for which market quotations are
insufficient or not readily available on a particular business day (including securities for which there is a short and temporary
lapse in the provision of a price by the regular pricing source), (ii) securities for which, in the judgment of the Adviser or
Sub-adviser, the prices or values available do not represent the fair value of the instrument. Factors which may cause the Adviser
or sub-adviser to make such a judgment include, but are not limited to, the following: only a bid price or an asked price is available;
the spread between bid and asked prices is substantial; the frequency of sales; the thinness of the market; the size of reported
trades; and actions of the securities markets, such as the suspension or limitation of trading; (iii) securities determined to
be illiquid; (iv) securities with respect to which an event that will affect the value thereof has occurred (a “significant
event”) since the closing prices were established on the principal exchange on which they are traded, but prior to the Fund’s
calculation of its net asset value. Specifically, interests in commodity pools or managed futures pools are valued on a daily basis
by reference to the closing market prices of each futures contract or other asset held by a pool, as adjusted for pool expenses.
Restricted or illiquid securities, such as private placements or non-traded securities are valued via inputs from the Adviser or
Sub-adviser valuation based upon the current bid for the security from two or more independent dealers or other parties reasonably
familiar with the facts and circumstances of the security (who should take into consideration all relevant factors as may be appropriate
under the circumstances). If the Adviser or Sub-adviser is unable to obtain a current bid from such independent dealers or other
independent parties, the fair value team shall determine the fair value of such security using the following factors: (i) the type
of security; (ii) the cost at date of purchase; (iii) the size and nature of the Fund's holdings; (iv) the discount from market
value of unrestricted securities of the same class at the time of purchase and subsequent thereto; (v) information as to any transactions
or offers with respect to the security; (vi) the nature and duration of restrictions on disposition of the security and the existence
of any registration rights; (vii) how the yield of the security compares to similar securities of companies of similar or equal
creditworthiness; (viii) the level of recent trades of similar or comparable securities; (ix) the liquidity characteristics of
the security; (x) current market conditions; and (xi) the market value of any securities into which the security is convertible
or exchangeable.

Standards For Fair Value
Determinations
. As a general principle, the fair value of a security is the amount that a Fund might reasonably expect to realize
upon its current sale. The Trust has adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board Statement of Financial Accounting Standards Codification
Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures ("ASC 820"). In accordance with ASC 820, fair value is defined as
the price that the Fund would receive upon selling an investment in a timely transaction to an independent buyer in the principal
or most advantageous market of the investment. ASC 820 establishes a three-tier hierarchy to maximize the use of observable market
data and minimize the use of unobservable inputs and to establish classification of fair value measurements for disclosure purposes.
Inputs refer broadly to the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability, including assumptions
about risk, for example, the risk inherent in a particular valuation technique used to measure fair value including such a pricing
model and/or the risk inherent in the inputs to the valuation technique. Inputs may be observable or unobservable. Observable inputs
are inputs that reflect the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on market
data obtained from sources independent of the reporting entity. Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect the reporting entity's
own assumptions about the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability, developed based on the best
information available under the circumstances.

Various inputs are used
in determining the value of each Fund's investments relating to ASC 820. These inputs are summarized in the three broad levels
listed below.

Level 1 – quoted
prices in active markets for identical securities.

Level 2 – other significant
observable inputs (including quoted prices for similar securities, interest rates, prepayment speeds, credit risk, etc.)

Level 3 – significant
unobservable inputs (including a Fund’s own assumptions in determining the fair value of investments).

The fair value committee
takes into account the relevant factors and surrounding circumstances, which may include: (i) the nature and pricing history (if
any) of the security; (ii) whether any dealer quotations for the security are available; (iii) possible valuation methodologies
that could be used to determine the fair value of the security; (iv) the recommendation of a portfolio manager of the Fund with
respect to the valuation of the security; (v) whether the same or similar securities are held by other Funds managed by the Adviser
(or Sub-adviser) or other Funds and the method used to price the security in those Funds; (vi) the extent to which the fair value
to be determined for the security will result from the use of data or formulae produced by independent third parties and (vii)
the liquidity or illiquidity of the market for the security.

Board of Trustees Determination.
The Board of Trustees meets at least quarterly to consider the valuations provided by the fair value committee and to ratify the
valuations for the applicable securities. The Board of Trustees considers the reports provided by the fair value committee, including
follow up studies of subsequent market-provided prices when available, in reviewing and determining in good faith the fair value
of the applicable portfolio securities.

The Trust expects that
the NYSE will be closed on the following holidays: New Year's Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Presidents’ Day, Good Friday,
Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.

Purchase of Shares

Orders for shares received
by the Fund in good order prior to the close of business on the NYSE on each day during such periods that the NYSE is open for
trading are priced at NAV per share or offering price (NAV plus a sales charge, if applicable) computed as of the close of the
regular session of trading on the NYSE. Orders received in good order after the close of the NYSE, or on a day it is not open for
trading, are priced at the close of such NYSE on the next day on which it is open for trading at the next determined NAV or offering
price per share.

Redemption of Shares

The Fund will redeem all
or any portion of a shareholder's shares in the Fund when requested in accordance with the procedures set forth in the "Redemptions"
section of the Prospectus. Under the 1940 Act, a shareholder’s right to redeem shares and to receive payment therefore may
be suspended at times:

(a) when the NYSE
is closed, other than customary weekend and holiday closings;

(b) when trading on
that exchange is restricted for any reason;

(c) when
an emergency exists as a result of which disposal by the Fund of securities owned by it is not reasonably practicable or it is
not reasonably practicable for the Fund fairly to determine the value of its net assets, provided that applicable rules and
regulations of the SEC (or any succeeding governmental authority) will govern as to whether the conditions prescribed in (b) or
(c) exist; ou

(d) when
the SEC by order permits a suspension of the right to redemption or a postponement of the date of payment on redemption.

In case of suspension of
the right of redemption, payment of a redemption request will be made based on the NAV next determined after the termination of
the suspension.

The Fund may purchase shares
of Underlying Funds which charge a redemption fee to shareholders (such as the Fund) that redeem shares of the Underlying Fund
within a certain period of time (such as one year). The fee is payable to the Underlying Fund. Accordingly, if the Fund were to
invest in an Underlying Fund and incur a redemption fee as a result of redeeming shares in such Underlying Fund, the Fund would
bear such redemption fee. The Fund will not, however, invest in shares of an Underlying Fund that is sold with a contingent deferred
sales load.

Supporting documents in
addition to those listed under “Redemptions” in the Prospectus will be required from executors, administrators, Trustees,
or if redemption is requested by someone other than the shareholder of record. Such documents include, but are not restricted to,
stock powers, Trust instruments, certificates of death, appointments as executor, certificates of corporate authority and waiver
of tax required in some states when settling estates.

Redemption Fee

The Fund will deduct a
0.25% redemption fee on your redemption amount if you sell your shares after holding them for less than 30 days. Shares held the
longest amount of time will be treated as being redeemed first and shares held the shortest amount of time as being redeemed last.
Shares held for 30 days or more are not subject to the 0.25% fee.  Redemption fees are paid to the Fund directly and are designed
to offset costs associated with fluctuations in Fund asset levels and cash flow caused by short-term shareholder trading.

Waivers of Redemption
Fees:
The Fund has elected not to impose the redemption fee for:

·
redemptions and exchanges of Fund shares acquired through the reinvestment of dividends and distributions;

·
certain types of redemptions and exchanges of Fund shares owned through participant-directed retirement plans;

·
redemptions or exchanges in discretionary asset allocation, fee based or wrap programs (“wrap programs”) that
are initiated by the sponsor/financial adviser as part of a periodic rebalancing;

·
redemptions or exchanges in a fee based or wrap program that are made as a result of a full withdrawal from the wrap program
or as part of a systematic withdrawal plan;

·
involuntary redemptions, such as those resulting from a shareholder’s failure to maintain a minimum investment in
the Fund, or to pay shareholder fees; ou

·
other types of redemptions as the Adviser or the Trust may determine in special situations and approved by the Fund’s
or the Adviser’s Chief Compliance Officer.

TAX STATUS

The following discussion
is general in nature and should not be regarded as an exhaustive presentation of all possible tax ramifications. All shareholders
should consult a qualified tax adviser regarding their investment in the Fund.

The Fund intends to qualify
as a regulated investment company under Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”),
which requires compliance with certain requirements concerning the sources of its income, diversification of its assets, and the
amount and timing of its distributions to shareholders. Such qualification does not involve supervision of management or investment
practices or policies by any government agency or bureau. By so qualifying, the Fund should not be subject to federal income or
excise tax on its net investment income or net capital gain, which are distributed to shareholders in accordance with the applicable
timing requirements. Net investment income and net capital gain of the Fund will be computed in accordance with Section 852 of
the Code.

Net investment income
is made up of dividends and interest less expenses. Net capital gain for a fiscal year is computed by taking into account any capital
loss carryforward of the Fund. Capital losses incurred in tax years beginning after December 22, 2010 may now be carried forward
indefinitely and retain the character of the original loss.  Under previously enacted laws, capital losses could be carried
forward to offset any capital gains for only eight years, and carried forward as short-term capital losses, irrespective of the
character of the original loss.  Capital loss carry forwards are available to offset future realized capital gains. To the
extent that these carry forwards are used to offset future capital gains it is probable that the amount offset will not be distributed
to shareholders. At December 31, 2018, the Fund had capital loss carry forwards for federal income tax purposes available to offset
future capital gains as follows:

Non-Expiring Non-Expiring
Short-Term Long-Term Total
$ 3,406,307 $ 11,423,565 $ 14,829,872

The Fund intends to distribute
all of its net investment income, any excess of net short-term capital gains over net long-term capital losses, and any excess
of net long-term capital gains over net short-term capital losses in accordance with the timing requirements imposed by the Code
and therefore should not be required to pay any federal income or excise taxes. Distributions of net investment income and net
capital gain will be made after the end of each fiscal year, and no later than December 31 of each year. Both types of distributions
will be in shares of the Fund unless a shareholder elects to receive cash.

To be treated as a regulated
investment company under Subchapter M of the Code, the Fund must also (a) derive at least 90% of its gross income from dividends,
interest, payments with respect to securities loans, net income from certain publicly traded partnerships and gains from the sale
or other disposition of securities or foreign currencies, or other income derived with respect to the business of investing in
such securities or currencies, and (b) diversify its holding so that, at the end of each fiscal quarter, (i) at least 50% of the
market value of the Fund’s assets is represented by cash, U.S. government securities and securities of other regulated investment
companies, and other securities (for purposes of this calculation, generally limited in respect of any one issuer, to an amount
not greater than 5% of the market value of the Fund’s assets and 10% of the outstanding voting securities of such issuer)
and (ii) not more than 25% of the value of its assets is invested in the securities of (other than U.S. government securities or
the securities of other regulated investment companies) any one issuer, two or more issuers which the Fund controls and which are
determined to be engaged in the same or similar trades or businesses, or the securities of certain publicly traded partnerships.

If the Fund fails to qualify
as a regulated investment company under Subchapter M in any fiscal year, it will be treated as a corporation for federal income
tax purposes. As such the Fund would be required to pay income taxes on its net investment income and net realized capital gains,
if any, at the rates generally applicable to corporations. Shareholders of the Fund generally would not be liable for income tax
on the Fund’s net investment income or net realized capital gains in their individual capacities. Distributions to shareholders,
whether from the Fund’s net investment income or net realized capital gains, would be treated as taxable dividends to the
extent of current or accumulated earnings and profits of the Fund.

The Fund is subject to
a 4% nondeductible excise tax on certain undistributed amounts of ordinary income and capital gain under a prescribed formula contained
in Section 4982 of the Code. The formula requires payment to shareholders during a calendar year of distributions representing
at least 98% of the Fund’s ordinary income for the calendar year and at least 98.2% of its capital gain net income (i.e.,
the excess of its capital gains over capital losses) realized during the one-year period ending October 31 during such year plus
100% of any income that was neither distributed nor taxed to the Fund during the preceding calendar year. Under ordinary circumstances,
the Fund expects to time its distributions so as to avoid liability for this tax.

The following discussion
of tax consequences is for the general information of shareholders that are subject to tax.  Shareholders that are IRAs or
other qualified retirement plans are exempt from income taxation under the Code.

Distributions of taxable
net investment income and the excess of net short-term capital gain over net long-term capital loss are taxable to shareholders
as ordinary income.  In most cases the Fund will hold shares in Underlying Funds for less than 12 months, such that its sales
of such shares from time to time will not qualify as long-term capital gains for those investors who hold shares of the Fund in
taxable accounts.

Distributions of net capital
gain (“capital gain dividends”) generally are taxable to shareholders as short-term capital gain; függetlenül a
length of time the shares of the Trust have been held by such shareholders.

For taxable years beginning
after December 31, 2012, certain U.S. shareholders, including individuals and estates and trusts, will be subject to an additional
3.8% Medicare tax on all or a portion of their “net investment income,” which should include dividends from the Fund
and net gains from the disposition of shares of the Fund. U.S. Shareholders are urged to consult their own tax advisers regarding
the implications of the additional Medicare tax resulting from an investment in the Fund.

Redemption of Fund shares
by a shareholder will result in the recognition of taxable gain or loss in an amount equal to the difference between the amount
realized and the shareholder’s tax basis in his or her Fund shares. Such gain or loss is treated as a capital gain or loss
if the shares are held as capital assets. However, any loss realized upon the redemption of shares within six months from the date
of their purchase will be treated as a long-term capital loss to the extent of any amounts treated as capital gain dividends during
such six-month period. All or a portion of any loss realized upon the redemption of shares may be disallowed to the extent shares
are purchased (including shares acquired by means of reinvested dividends) within 30 days before or after such redemption.

Distributions of taxable
net investment income and net capital gain will be taxable as described above, whether received in additional cash or shares. Shareholders
electing to reinvest distributions in the form of additional shares will have a cost basis for federal income tax purposes in each
share so received equal to the net asset value of a share on the reinvestment date.

All distributions of taxable
net investment income and net capital gain, whether received in shares or in cash, must be reported by each taxable shareholder
on his or her federal income tax return. Dividends or distributions declared in October, November or December as of a record date
in such a month, if any, will be deemed to have been received by shareholders on December 31, if paid during January of the following
year. Redemptions of shares may result in tax consequences (gain or loss) to the shareholder and are also subject to these reporting
requirements.

Under the Code, the Fund
will be required to report to the Internal Revenue Service all distributions of taxable income and capital gains as well as gross
proceeds from the redemption or exchange of Fund shares, except in the case of certain exempt shareholders. Under the backup withholding
provisions of Section 3406 of the Code, distributions of taxable net investment income and net capital gain and proceeds from
the redemption or exchange of the shares of a regulated investment company may be subject to withholding of federal income tax
in the case of non-exempt shareholders who fail to furnish the investment company with their taxpayer identification numbers and
with required certifications regarding their status under the federal income tax law, or if the Fund is notified by the IRS or
a broker that withholding is required due to an incorrect TIN or a previous failure to report taxable interest or dividends. Ha
the withholding provisions are applicable, any such distributions and proceeds, whether taken in cash or reinvested in additional
shares, will be reduced by the amounts required to be withheld.

Payments to a shareholder
that is either a foreign financial institution (“FFI”) or a non-financial foreign entity (“NFFE”) within
the meaning of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (“FATCA”) may be subject to a generally nonrefundable 30% withholding
tax on: (a) income dividends paid by a Fund after June 30, 2014 and (b) certain capital gain distributions and the proceeds arising
from the sale of Fund shares paid by the Fund after December 31, 2016. FATCA withholding tax generally can be avoided: (a) by an
FFI, subject to any applicable intergovernmental agreement or other exemption, if it enters into a valid agreement with the IRS
to, among other requirements, report required information about certain direct and indirect ownership of foreign financial accounts
held by U.S. persons with the FFI and (b) by an NFFE, if it: (i) certifies that it has no substantial U.S. persons as owners or
(ii) if it does have such owners, reports information relating to them. A Fund may disclose the information that it receives from
its shareholders to the IRS, non-U.S. taxing authorities or other parties as necessary to comply with FATCA. Withholding also may
be required if a foreign entity that is a shareholder of a Fund fails to provide the Fund with appropriate certifications or other
documentation concerning its status under FATCA.

Original Issue Discount
and Pay-In-Kind Securities

Current federal tax law
requires the holder of a U.S. Treasury or other fixed income zero coupon security to accrue as income each year a portion of the
discount at which the security was purchased, even though the holder receives no interest payment in cash on the security during
the year. In addition, pay-in-kind securities will give rise to income, which is required to be distributed and is taxable even
though the Fund holding the security receives no interest payment in cash on the security during the year.

Some of the debt securities
(with a fixed maturity date of more than one year from the date of issuance) that may be acquired by the Fund may be treated as
debt securities that are issued originally at a discount. Generally, the amount of the original issue discount ("OID")
is treated as interest income and is included in income over the term of the debt security, even though payment of that amount
is not received until a later time, usually when the debt security matures.

Some of the debt securities
(with a fixed maturity date of more than one year from the date of issuance) that may be acquired by the Fund in the secondary
market may be treated as having market discount. Generally, any gain recognized on the disposition of, and any partial payment
of principal on, a debt security having market discount is treated as ordinary income to the extent the gain, or principal payment,
does not exceed the "accrued market discount" on such debt security. Market discount generally accrues in equal daily
installments. The Fund may make one or more of the elections applicable to debt securities having market discount, which could
affect the character and timing of recognition of income.

Some debt securities (with
a fixed maturity date of one year or less from the date of issuance) that may be acquired by the Fund may be treated as having
acquisition discount, or OID in the case of certain types of debt securities. Generally, the Fund will be required to include the
acquisition discount, or OID, in income over the term of the debt security, even though payment of that amount is not received
until a later time, usually when the debt security matures. The Fund may make one or more of the elections applicable to debt securities
having OID, which could affect the character and timing of recognition of income.

If the Fund holds the foregoing
kinds of securities, it may be required to pay out as an income distribution each year an amount that is greater than the total
amount of cash interest the Fund actually received. Such distributions may be made from the cash assets of the Fund or by liquidation
of portfolio securities, if necessary (including when it is not advantageous to do so).  The Fund may realize gains or losses
from such liquidations. In the event the Fund realizes net capital gains from such transactions, its shareholders may receive a
larger capital gain distribution, if any, than they would in the absence of such transactions.

Shareholders of the Fund
may be subject to state and local taxes on distributions received from the Fund and on redemptions of the Fund's shares.

A brief explanation of
the form and character of the distribution accompany each distribution. In January of each year the Fund issues to each shareholder
a statement of the federal income tax status of all distributions.

Shareholders should
consult their tax advisers about the application of federal, state and local and foreign tax law in light of their particular situation.

APPENDIX A

Proxy Voting Guidelines for Loomis, Sayles
& Company, L.P.

Loomis, Sayles & Company,
L.P. (“Loomis Sayles”) will vote proxies on behalf of a client if, in its investment management agreement (“IMA”)
with Loomis Sayles, the client has delegated to Loomis Sayles the authority to vote proxies on its behalf. With respect to IMAs
executed with clients prior to June 30, 2004, Loomis Sayles assumes that, the proxy voting authority assigned by Loomis Sayles
at account setup is accurate unless the client or their representative has instructed Loomis Sayles otherwise. Loomis Sayles has
adopted and implemented these policies and procedures (“Proxy Voting Procedures”) to ensure that, where it has voting
authority, proxy matters are handled in the best interest of clients, in accordance with Loomis Sayles’ fiduciary duties
and SEC rule 206(4)-6 under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. In addition to SEC requirements governing advisers, its Proxy
Voting Procedures reflect the long-standing fiduciary standards and responsibilities for ERISA accounts set out in Department of
Labor Bulletin 94-2, 29 C.F.R. 2509.94-2 (July 29, 1994). Loomis Sayles uses the services of third parties (“Proxy Voting
Service(s)”), to research and administer the vote on proxies for those accounts and funds for which Loomis Sayles has voting
authority. Each Proxy Voting Service has a copy of Loomis Sayles’ Proxy Voting Procedures and provides vote recommendations
and/or analysis to Loomis Sayles based on Loomis Sayles’ Procedures and the Proxy Voting Service’s own research. Loomis
Sayles will generally follow its express policy with input from the Proxy Voting Services unless the Proxy Committee determines
that the client’s best interests are served by voting otherwise.

The following guidelines will apply when voting proxies on behalf of accounts
for which Loomis Sayles has voting authority.

Client’s Best Interest. Loomis Sayles’
Proxy Voting Procedures are designed and implemented in a way that is reasonably expected to ensure that proxy matters are conducted
in the best interest of clients. When considering the best interest of clients, Loomis Sayles has determined that this means the
best investment interest of its clients as shareholders of the issuer. Loomis Sayles has established its Procedures to assist it
in making its proxy voting decisions with a view to enhancing the value of its clients’ interests in an issuer over the period
during which it expects its clients to hold their investments. Loomis Sayles will vote against proposals that it believes could
adversely impact the current or potential market value of the issuer’s securities during the expected holding period.

Client Proxy Voting Policies. Rather than delegating proxy voting
authority to Loomis Sayles, a client may (1) retain the authority
to vote proxies on securities in its account, (2) delegate voting authority to another party or (3) instruct Loomis Sayles to vote
proxies according to a policy that differs from that of Loomis Sayles. Loomis Sayles will honor any of these instructions if the
client includes the instruction in writing in its IMA or in a written instruction from a person authorized under the IMA to give
such instructions. If Loomis incurs additional costs or expenses in following any such instruction, Loomis may request payment
of such additional costs or expenses from the client.

Stated Policies. These policies identify issues
where Loomis Sayles will (1) generally vote in favor of a proposal, (2) generally vote against a proposal, (3) generally vote as
recommended by the proxy voting service and (4) specifically consider its vote for or against a proposal. However, these policies
are guidelines and each vote may be cast differently than the stated policy, taking into consideration all relevant facts and circumstances
at the time of the vote.

Abstain from Voting. Our policy is to vote
rather than abstain from voting on issues presented unless the client’s best interest requires abstention. Loomis Sayles
will abstain in cases where the impact of the expected costs involved in voting exceeds the expected benefits of the vote such
as where foreign corporations follow share-blocking practices or where proxy material is not available in English. Loomis Sayles
will vote against ballot issues where the issuer does not provide sufficient information to make an informed decision. In addition,
there may be instances where Loomis Sayles is not able to vote proxies on a client's behalf, such as when ballot delivery instructions
have not been processed by a client's custodian, the Proxy Voting Service has not received a ballot for a client's account or under
other circumstances beyond Loomis Sayles' control.

Oversight. All issues presented for shareholder
vote will be considered under the oversight of the Proxy Committee. All non-routine issues will be directly considered by the Proxy
Committee and, when necessary, the equity analyst following the company and/or the portfolio manager of an account holding the
security, and will be voted in the best investment interests of the client. All routine for and against issues will be voted according
to Loomis Sayles’ policy approved by the Proxy Committee unless special factors require that they be considered by the Proxy
Committee and, when necessary, the equity analyst following the company and/or the portfolio manager of an account holding the
security. Loomis Sayles’ Proxy Committee has established these routine policies in what it believes are the client’s
best interests.

Availability of Procedures. Upon request, Loomis
Sayles provides clients with a copy of its Proxy Voting Procedures, as updated from time to time. In addition, Loomis Sayles includes
its Proxy Voting Procedures and/or a description of its Procedures on its public website, www.loomissayles.com, and in its Form
ADV, Part II.

Disclosure of Vote. Upon request, a client
can obtain information from Loomis Sayles on how its proxies were voted. Any client interested in obtaining this information should
contact its Loomis Sayles’s representatives.

Disclosure to Third Parties. Loomis Sayles’
general policy is not to disclose to third parties how it (or its voting delegate) voted a client’s proxy except that for
registered investment companies, Loomis Sayles makes disclosures as required by Rule 30(b)(1)-(4) under the Investment Company
Act of 1940 and, from time to time at the request of client groups, Loomis may make general disclosures (not specific as to client)
of its voting instructions.

Proxy Committee. Loomis Sayles has established
a Proxy Committee. The Proxy Committee is composed of representatives of the Equity Research department and the Legal & Compliance
department and other employees of Loomis Sayles as needed. In the event that any member is unable to participate in a meeting of
the Proxy Committee, his or her designee acts on his or her behalf. A vacancy in the Proxy Committee is filled by the prior member’s
successor in position at Loomis Sayles or a person of equivalent experience. Each portfolio manager of an account that holds voting
securities of an issuer or analyst covering the issuer or its securities may be an ad hoc member of the Proxy Committee in connection
with the vote of proxies.

Duties. The specific responsibilities of the
Proxy Committee, include, a. to develop, authorize, implement and update these Proxy Voting Procedures, including

(i) annual review of these Procedures
to ensure consistency with internal policies and regulatory agency policies,

(ii) annual review of existing voting
guidelines and development of additional voting guidelines to assist in the review of proxy proposals, and

(iii) annual review of the proxy
voting process and any general issues that relate to proxy voting;

b. to oversee the proxy voting process, including;

(i) overseeing the vote on proposals
according to the predetermined policies in the voting guidelines,

(ii) directing the vote on proposals
where there is reason not to vote according to the predetermined policies in the voting guidelines or where proposals require special
consideration, and

(iii) consulting with the portfolio
managers and analysts for the accounts holding the security when necessary or appropriate;

c. to engage and oversee third-party vendors,
including Proxy Voting Services; et

d. to develop and/or modify these Proxy Voting
Procedures as appropriate or necessary.

Standards.

a. When determining the vote of any proposal
for which it has responsibility, the Proxy

Committee shall vote in the client’s
best interest as described in section 1(B)(1) above. In the event a client believes that its other interests require a different
vote, Loomis Sayles shall vote as the client instructs if the instructions are provided as required in section 1(B)(2) above.

b. When determining the vote on any proposal,
the Proxy Committee shall not consider any benefit to Loomis Sayles, any of its affiliates, any of its or their clients or service
providers, other than benefits to the owner of the securities to be voted.

Charter. The Proxy Committee may adopt a Charter,
which shall be consistent with these Procedures. Any Charter shall set forth the Committee’s purpose, membership and operation
and shall include procedures prohibiting a member from voting on a matter for which he or she has a conflict of interest by reason
of a direct relationship with the issuer or other party affected by a given proposal, e.g., is a portfolio manager for an account
of the issuer.

Loomis Sayles has established
several policies to ensure that proxy votes are voted in its clients’ best interest and are not affected by any possible
conflicts of interest. First, except in certain limited instances, Loomis Sayles votes in accordance with its pre-determined policies
set forth in these Proxy Voting Procedures. Second, where these Procedures allow for discretion, Loomis Sayles will generally consider
the recommendations of the Proxy Voting Services in making its voting decisions. However, if the Proxy Committee determines that
the Proxy Voting Services’ recommendation is not in the best interest of its clients, then the Proxy Committee may use its
discretion to vote against the Proxy Voting Services’ recommendation, but only after taking the following steps: (1) conducting
a review for any material conflict of interest Loomis Sayles may have and, (2) if any material conflict is found to exist, excluding
anyone at Loomis Sayles who is subject to that conflict of interest from participating in the voting decision in any way. Azonban,
if deemed necessary or appropriate by the Proxy Committee after full prior disclosure of any conflict, that person may provide
information, opinions or recommendations on any proposal to the Proxy Committee. In such event the Proxy Committee will make reasonable
efforts to obtain and consider, prior to directing any vote information, opinions or recommendations from or about the opposing
position on any proposal.

each vote cast; (4) a copy of any document created by Loomis Sayles that is material to making a decision how to vote proxies on
behalf of a client or that memorializes the basis for that decision; and (5) each written client request for proxy voting records

ITEM 30.

INDEMNIFICATION.

Article VIII, Section 2(a) of the Agreement
and Declaration of Trust provides that to the fullest extent that limitations on the liability of Trustees and officers are permitted
by the Delaware Statutory Trust Act of 2002, the officers and Trustees shall not be responsible or liable in any event for any
act or omission of:  any agent or employee of the Trust; any investment adviser or principal underwriter of the Trust; ou
with respect to each Trustee and officer, the act or omission of any other Trustee or officer, respectively.  The Trust, out
of the Trust Property, is required to indemnify and hold harmless each and every officer and Trustee from and against any and all
claims and demands whatsoever arising out of or related to such officer’s or Trustee’s performance of his or her duties
as an officer or Trustee of the Trust.  This limitation on liability applies to events occurring at the time a person serves
as a Trustee or officer of the Trust whether or not such person is a Trustee or officer at the time of any proceeding in which
liability is asserted.  Nothing contained in the Agreement and Declaration of Trust indemnifies, holds harmless or protects
any officer or Trustee from or against any liability to the Trust or any shareholder to which such person would otherwise be subject
by reason of willful misfeasance, bad faith, gross negligence or reckless disregard of the duties involved in the conduct of such
person’s office.

Article VIII, Section 2(b) provides that every
note, bond, contract, instrument, certificate or undertaking and every other act or document whatsoever issued, executed or done
by or on behalf of the Trust, the officers or the Trustees or any of them in connection with the Trust shall be conclusively deemed
to have been issued, executed or done only in such Person’s capacity as Trustee and/or as officer, and such Trustee or officer,
as applicable, shall not be personally liable therefore, except as described in the last sentence of the first paragraph of Section
2 of Article VIII.

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities
arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to trustees, officers and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant
to the provisions of Delaware law and the Agreement and Declaration of the Registrant or the By-Laws of the Registrant, or otherwise,
the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public
policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities
(other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a trustee, officer or controlling person of the Trust
in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such trustee, officer or controlling person in connection
with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by
controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against
public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

The Underwriting Agreement provides that the
Registrant agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Northern Lights Distributors (NLD), its several officers and directors, and any
person who controls NLD within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act free and harmless from and against any and all claims,
demands, liabilities and expenses (including the reasonable cost of investigating or defending such claims, demands or liabilities
and any reasonable counsel fees incurred in connection therewith) which NLD, its officers and directors, or any such controlling
persons, may incur under the Securities Act, the 1940 Act, or common law or otherwise, arising out of or based upon: (i) any untrue
statement, or alleged untrue statement, of a material fact required to be stated in either any Registration Statement or any Prospectus,
(ii) any omission, or alleged omission, to state a material fact required to be stated in any Registration Statement or any Prospectus
or necessary to make the statements in any of them not misleading, (iii) the Registrant’s  failure to maintain an effective
Registration statement and Prospectus with respect to Shares of the Funds that are the subject of the claim or demand, or (iv)
 the Registrant’s failure to provide NLD with advertising or sales materials to be filed with the FINRA on a timely
basis.

The Underwriting Agreement provides that the
Registrant agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Foreside Distribution Services, L.P. (Foreside), its several officers and directors,
and any person who controls Foreside within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act free and harmless from and against
any and all claims, demands, liabilities and expenses (including the reasonable cost of investigating or defending such claims,
demands or liabilities and any reasonable counsel fees incurred in connection therewith) which Foreside, its officers and directors,
or any such controlling persons, may incur under the Securities Act, the 1940 Act, or common law or otherwise, arising out of or
based upon: (i) any untrue statement, or alleged untrue statement, of a material fact required to be stated in either any Registration
Statement or any Prospectus, (ii) any omission, or alleged omission, to state a material fact required to be stated in any Registration
Statement or any Prospectus or necessary to make the statements in any of them not misleading, (iii) the Registrant’s  failure
to maintain an effective Registration statement and Prospectus with respect to Shares of the Funds that are the subject of the
claim or demand, or (iv)  the Registrant’s failure to provide Foreside with advertising or sales materials to be filed
with the FINRA on a timely basis.

The Underwriting Agreement provides that the
Registrant agrees to indemnify, defend and hold ALPS Distributors, Inc. (ALPS), its several officers and directors, and any person
who controls ALPS within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act free and harmless from and against any and all claims,
demands, liabilities and expenses (including the reasonable cost of investigating or defending such claims, demands or liabilities
and any reasonable counsel fees incurred in connection therewith) which ALPS, its officers and directors, or any such controlling
persons, may incur under the Securities Act, the 1940 Act, or common law or otherwise, arising out of or based upon: (i) any untrue
statement, or alleged untrue statement, of a material fact required to be stated in either any Registration Statement or any Prospectus,
(ii) any omission, or alleged omission, to state a material fact required to be stated in any Registration Statement or any Prospectus
or necessary to make the statements in any of them not misleading, (iii) the Registrant’s  failure to maintain an effective
Registration statement and Prospectus with respect to Shares of the Funds that are the subject of the claim or demand, or (iv)
 the Registrant’s failure to provide ALPS with advertising or sales materials to be filed with the FINRA on a timely
basis.

The Fund Accounting, Transfer Agency and Administration
Service Agreements with Gemini Fund Services (GFS) provides that the Registrant agrees to indemnify and hold GFS harmless from
and against any and all losses, damages, costs, charges, reasonable counsel fees, payments, expenses and liability arising out
of or attributable to the Registrant’s refusal or failure to comply with the terms of the Agreement, or which arise out of
the Registrant’s lack of good faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct with respect to the Registrant’s performance
under or in connection with this Agreement.

The Consulting Agreement with Northern Lights
Compliance Services, LLC (NLCS) provides that the Registrant agree to indemnify and hold NLCS harmless from and against any and
all losses, damages, costs, charges, reasonable counsel fees, payments, expenses and liability arising out of or attributable to
the Trust’s refusal or failure to comply with the terms of the Agreement, or which arise out of the Trust’s lack of
good faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct with respect to the Trust’s performance under or in connection with the
Agreement.  NLCS shall not be liable for, and shall be entitled to rely upon, and may act upon information, records and reports
generated by the Trust, advice of the Trust, or of counsel for the Trust and upon statements of the Trust’s independent accountants,
and shall be without liability for any action reasonably taken or omitted pursuant to such records and reports.
