The performance data quoted represents past performance, which is not a guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements by the Adviser have positively impacted the Fund’s performance. Without such waivers and/or reimbursements, performance would have been lower.
An investor should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Fund carefully before investing.

Effective January 1, 2014, the management fee paid by the Fund was reduced from 1.25% per annum to 1.15% per annum. In addition, the Adviser contractually agreed to reduce its management fees and to absorb the Fund’s operating expenses (for the life of the Fund) to the extent necessary to limit annual ordinary operating expenses to an amount not exceeding 1.50% of the TFS Small Cap Fund’s average daily net assets. The expense ratio information listed above has been restated for the new management fee and expense cap arrangement between the Fund and the Adviser. See the current Prospectus for a more detailed discussion.
The following “risk” information is being provided to help you better understand the unique risks associated with investing in TFSSX. TFSSX will invest predominantly in small capitalization companies which are generally more volatile than larger, more established companies. In addition, TFSSX will have a high portfolio turnover rate which will increase transaction costs for the Fund and decrease tax efficiency relative to funds with lower turnover. A more detailed discussion of the Fund’s risks, including risks that are unique to the Fund, can be found in its prospectus. The US 3 Month Treasury Bill rate is used as the risk free rate in alpha calculations.
