The Real Strategies Fund seeks total return consisting of capital appreciation and income. The Fund normally pursues its objective by making investments that have performed well relative to general U.S. stocks and bonds during periods of increased inflation. The managers invest in a strategic combination of companies that own or invest in real estate, companies based on commodities such as agricultural products, oil and gas or metals, companies that provide services to any of these industries, as well as index-based securities and inflation protected securities. In an effort to lower volatility, the Fund may write call options and put options on individual stocks.
Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The value of the Fund may decrease in response to the activities and financial prospects of an individual security in the Fund’s portfolio. The Fund is nondiversified and may invest a greater percentage of its assets in a particular issue and may own fewer securities than other mutual funds. The performance of the Fund may be subject to substantial short term changes. To the extent the Fund invests in the stocks of smaller-sized companies, the Fund may be subject to additional risks, including the risk that earnings and prospects of these companies are more volatile than larger companies. Smaller-sized companies may experience higher failure rates than larger companies and normally have lower trading volume than larger companies. These factors may affect the value of your investment. Investments in real estate investment trusts (REITS) involve special risks associated with an investment in real estate, such as limited liquidity and interest rate risks, and may be more volatile than other securities. There are no guarantees that dividend paying stocks will continue to pay dividends. In addition, dividend paying stocks may not experience the same capital appreciation potential as non-dividend.
