Effective May 1, 2019, the Summit Global Investments Global Low Volatility Equity Fund was renamed the SGI Global Equity Fund.

SGI Global Equity Fund - Equity securities (stocks) are subject to market, economic, and business risks that will cause their price to rise or fall over time. The net asset value per share of the Fund will fluctuate as the value of the securities in the portfolio change and an investor may lose money. Although the Fund seeks lower volatility, there is no guarantee the Fund will perform as expected. Fund holdings and sector allocations are subject to change and are not recommendations to buy or sell any security. The Fund invests in foreign securities which involve political, economic and currency risks, greater volatility and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater in emerging markets. The fund may invest in mid-cap companies, which involve additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility than larger companies.
