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 Fund invests in positions within US small cap, US large cap, or international equities when market indicators are strong. When indicators are very strong, the Fund’s exposure can increase to twice the market to enhance returns. When indicators are weak, 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.

Athena Behavioral Tactical Fund A was rated based on risk-adjusted returns against the following numbers of Tactical Allocation funds over the following time periods: 224 funds overall and in the last three years and 207 funds in the last five years. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Morningstar Rating™ is for the A share class only; other classes may have different performance characteristics.

Athena Behavioral Tactical Fund I was rated based on risk-adjusted returns against the following numbers of Tactical Allocation funds over the following time periods: 224 funds overall and in the last three years and 207 funds in the last five years. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Morningstar Rating™ is for the I share class only; other classes may have different performance characteristics.

The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The Morningstar Rating does not include any adjustment for sales loads. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10- year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.

Rank in Category is the fund’s total-return absolute rank relative to all funds that have the same Tactical Allocation category. The highest (or most favorable) absolute rank is 1 and the lowest (or least favorable) absolute rank is equal to the number of funds in the category. The top-performing fund in a category will always receive a rank of 1.

Total annual operating expenses are 2.34% and 2.09% for the Class A and I shares, respectively.

After this fee waiver, the expense ratios are 1.50% and 1.25% 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.
