What I Should Know
Before Investing

The Fund is newly organized, with a limited history of operations. An investment in the Fund involves a considerable amount of risk. The Fund is designed primarily for long-term investors and an investment in the Fund should be considered illiquid. Shareholders may not be able to sell their shares in the Fund at all or at a favorable price. Fixed income securities involve interest rate, credit, inflation, and reinvestment risks. As interest rates rise, the value of fixed income securities fall. High yield bonds possess greater price volatility, illiquidity, and possibility of default. The Fund’s investments are highly concentrated in real estate investments, and therefore will be subject to the risks typically associated with real estate, including but not limited to local, state, national or international economic conditions; including market disruptions caused by regional concerns, political upheaval, sovereign debt crises and other factors. Asset-backed, mortgage-backed or mortgage-related securities are subject to prepayment and extension risks. The Fund employs leverage, which increases the volatility of investment returns and subjects the Fund to magnified losses if an underlying fund’s investments decline in value. The Fund may use derivatives, such as options and futures, which can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase losses, and have a potentially large impact on Fund performance.   Liquidity considerations: The Fund should be viewed as a long-term investment, as it is inherently illiquid and suitable only for investors who can bear the risks associated with the limited liquidity of the Fund. Limited liquidity is provided to shareholders only through the Fund’s quarterly repurchase offers for no more than 5% of the Fund’s shares outstanding at net asset value. There is no guarantee these repurchases will occur as scheduled, or at all. Shares will not be listed on a public exchange, and no secondary market is expected to develop. The Fund manager does not expect to be able to achieve its target allocations until the Fund has raised substantial proceeds in this offering and acquired a broad portfolio of investments. Prior to that time (the “ramp-up period”) the Fund manager will balance the goal of achieving the Fund’s portfolio allocation targets with the goal of carefully evaluating and selecting investment opportunities to maximize risk-adjusted returns. Following the end of the ramp-up period, the manager believes that the size of our portfolio of investments should be sufficient for the Fund to adhere more closely to its allocation targets, although we cannot predict how long the ramp-up period will last and cannot provide assurances that we will be able to raise sufficient proceeds in this offering to accomplish this objective.

Net Asset Value (NAV): An investment option’s net asset value (“NAV”) per unit or unit price is calculated by dividing the value of its net assets by the total number of units outstanding. 

IMPORTANT PERFORMANCE INFORMATION: Performance shown represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance shown. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. For performance data including the effects of sales charges, Class S shares reflect the deduction of a maximum front-end sales charge of 3.5%. Class T shares reflect the deduction of a maximum front-end sales charge of 3% and a dealer manager fee of 0.5%. Total returns assume the reinvestment of all distributions at net asset value and the deduction of all Fund expenses. Total return figures are based on the NAV per share applied to shareholder subscriptions and redemptions, which may differ from the NAV per share disclosed in Fund shareholder reports. Performance shown excluding sales charges would have been lower, if the applicable sales charge been reflected. Had fees not been waived in various periods performance would have been lower. All classes of shares may not be available to all investors or through all distribution channels.

Different minimums may apply to clients of certain service agents. See the Fund's prospectus for additional information.

An investor cannot invest directly in an index. Unmanaged index returns do not reflect any fees, expenses or sales charges.

**Gross expenses are the Fund's total annual operating expenses for the share class(es) shown. Net expenses for Class(es) D, I, S & T reflect contractual fee waivers and/or reimbursements, where these reductions reduce the Fund's gross expenses, which cannot be terminated prior to Dec 31, 2021 without Board consent.

IMPORTANT HOLDINGS INFORMATION: Portfolio holdings are based on total portfolio, and are subject to change at any time. Holdings are provided for informational purposes only and should not be construed as a recommendation to purchase or sell any security. Any negative allocations or allocations in excess of 100% are primarily due to unsettled trade activities.

Derivatives, such as options and futures, which can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase losses and have a potentially large impact on Fund performance.

The per share distribution amounts presented above reflect the distribution rates that were paid to shareholders on the indicated payable dates. The character of distributions for certain funds may have been subsequently adjusted for tax purposes. Shareholders can determine which funds may have reclassified the tax character of distributions by visiting the Tax Center in Account Services. Information on reclassifications for distributions paid during the current calendar year will not be available until the first quarter of the following year.

When the value of a fund holding increases, the fund has an unrealized capital gain until the fund sells or otherwise disposes of the holding.  Upon disposition of the appreciated holding, the fund realizes the gain. Under U.S. tax laws, during its taxable year, a fund must distribute all capital gains that it has realized from the disposition of fund holdings, net of realized losses, so the fund will not be subject to an entity level income tax.  

Consequently, a fund’s capital gain distribution in a particular year is a result of the disposition of holdings that may have appreciated in value, perhaps during prior years when the fund’s returns were positive.   To the extent that a fund has long-term capital gains that exceed current period and deferred short-term capital losses from a prior year, a fund may have distributable gains that will be distributed to shareholders.  Such gains would be distributed to shareholders as a long-term capital gain distribution no matter how long the shareholder has owned shares in the mutual fund. 

While the fund may itself gain or lose value over the course of a year, a capital gain distribution paid by the fund may not be indicative of current performance of the fund.  The distributable amount of net capital gains are calculated under U.S. tax laws and are paid on a per-share basis to all investors who hold shares of the fund on the record date of the distribution. A shareholder must report the amount of net gains distributed to them on their income tax return regardless of when the gains or losses arose in the fund.

Please see a fund’s annual report for specific information regarding distributions and unrealized capital gains.
