Arbitrage Event-Driven Fund

The Arbitrage Event-Driven Fund, launched in 2010, seeks capital growth through an opportunistic and flexible approach to event-driven investing. This multi-strategy fund invests in the equity and debt instruments of companies involved in corporate events. Here, our investment team employs multiple investment strategies such as merger arbitrage, convertible arbitrage, and capital structure arbitrage. Our approach seeks to deliver consistent, positive absolute returns with lower volatility and low correlation relative to the broader markets.

Inception dates: AEDFX, 10/01/10; AEDNX, 10/01/10; AEFCX. 6/1/12; AGEAX, 6/1/13. Performance greater than one year is annualized.

The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. The fund assesses a 2% redemption fee on shares that are redeemed within 30 days of purchase. Returns shown above include the reinvestment of all dividends and capital gains. Contractual fee waivers are currently in effect and will remain in effect until September 30, 2016. Without such fee waivers, performance numbers may have been reduced. Class A shares have a maximum front-end sales charge of 3.25%.

RISKS: The Funds use investment techniques with risks that are different from the risks ordinarily associated with debt and equity investments. Such techniques and strategies include merger arbitrage risks, high portfolio turnover risks, options risks, borrowing risks, short sale risks, non-diversification risks, and foreign investment risks. The Arbitrage Event-Driven Fund and The Arbitrage Credit Opportunities Fund also include credit risks, interest rate risks, interest rate swap risks, credit default swap risks, and convertible security risks. Risks may increase volatility and may increase costs and lower performance.
