Objective and Strategy

The Athena Behavioral Tactical Fund (the “Fund”) seeks capital appreciation.

The Fund utilizes patented behavioral market indicators to gauge and select broad market- exposure among various equity markets, market capitalization or cash each month. The portfolio invests in positions within US small cap, US large cap, or international equities when market indicators are strong. In certain circumstances the exposure may be twice the market to enhance returns. During weak conditions, the fund can move to 100% cash.

Tactical Tilt

Systematically deliver a tactical tilt to your overall portfolio to potentially make it more responsive to market conditions.

Market Rotation

Market rotation is driven by our patented research that measures deep macro-level crowd behaviors.

Variable Exposure

Opportunistically increases exposure up to 200% in equity markets or moves to 100% cash for defensive purposes.

The figures shown represent past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted above. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Total annual operating expenses are 3.00% and 2.75% for the Class A and I shares, respectively. The Fund’s investment advisor has contractually agreed to reduce its fees and/or absorb expenses until at least August 31, 2021.   After this fee waiver, the expense ratios are 1.60% and 1.35% for the Class A and I shares, respectively. These fee waivers and expense reimbursements are subject to possible recoupment from the Fund in future years. Please review the Fund’s prospectus for more information regarding the Fund’s fees and expenses, including other share classes. Results shown reflect the waiver, without which the results could have been lower. Returns for periods longer than one year are annualized.

The S&P 500 index is capitalization-weighted and designed to measure the performance of the broad domestic economy through changes in the aggregate market value of 500 stocks representing all major industries. The MSCI ACWI Total Return Index is a free-float weighted equity index that includes both emerging and developed world markets. The portfolio does not seek to replicate the composition, performance, or volatility of the benchmark index and can be expected to have investments that differ substantially from the securities included in any index. Accordingly, no representation is made that the performance, volatility, or other characteristics of the portfolio will track the benchmark. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.
