Mortgage-backed securities are subject to prepayment and extension risk and therefore react differently to changes in interest rates than other bonds. Small movements in interest rates may quickly and significantly reduce the value of certain mortgage-backed securities. High yield bonds involve greater risks of default or downgrade and are more volatile than investment grade securities, due to the speculative nature of their investments. In addition to international investments, securities focusing on a single country may be subject to higher volatility. MLP's interests are all in a particular industry and the MLP will be negatively impacted by economic events adversely impacting that industry. The risks of investing in a MLP are generally those involved in investing in a partnership as opposed to a corporation, such as a limited control of management, limited voting rights and tax risks. MLP's may be subject to state taxation in certain jurisdictions, which will have the effect of reducing the amount of income paid by the MLP to its investors

Mutual fund investing involves risk including loss of principal.

In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, investments in smaller companies typically exhibit higher volatility. Bonds and bond funds are subject to interest rate risk and will decline in value as interest rates rise. International investments may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles, or from social, economic or political instability in other nations. With short sales, you risk paying more for a security than you received from its sale. Bond and bond funds will decrease in value as interest rates rise.

Certain Income may be subject to the alternative minimum tax. Diversification may not protect against market loss.

The use of leverage by the fund managers may accelerate the velocity of potential losses. Furthermore, the risk of loss from a short sale is unlimited because the Fund must purchase the shorted security at a higher price to complete the transaction and there is no limit for the security price. The use of options, swaps or derivatives by the Fund has the potential to significantly increase the Fund's volatility.

The Hancock Horizon Family of Funds are available to U.S. investors only and are not available in all states.
