Important Risk Information:
Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Bonds and bond funds are subject to interest rate risk and will decline in value as interest rates rise. 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. 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. There is no guarantee that the investment objective will be achieved. Holdings are subject to change.
Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses of the fund before investing. The prospectus contains this and other information about the fund, and it should be read. The prospectus may be obtained at (877)-627-8504 and www.channelfunds.com/mutual-funds.
