FUND OVERVIEW

The Bramshill Income Performance Fund is a fixed income strategy that seeks to maximize total return across various asset classes. The Fund invests in a tactical portfolio of income-producing securities, including investment grade and high-yield bonds, preferreds, municipal bonds, U.S. Treasuries. Bramshill assesses these five asset classes in the U.S. credit markets to determine where we believe the best opportunities are available. When the risk-reward in the markets appears favorable, the fund will endeavor to maintain a profile that is designed to participate in market rallies. However, when credit market opportunities appear less favorable, the Fund will maintain a more conservative profile which aims to prevent against principal drawdowns. The portfolio is actively managed, incorporating sector allocations and tactical hedging during various interest rate and market environments. The Fund uses fundamental credit and relative value analysis, and focuses on securities with transparent pricing, actively-traded capital structures and liquidity.  The Fund is highly-liquid, not benchmark dependent and seeks to maintain an investment grade profile. The Bramshill Income Performance Fund is managed by Bramshill Investments.

DISCLOSURE


The fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses must be considered carefully before investing. The prospectus contains this and other important information about the investment company and it may be obtained here or by calling (877) 272-6718. Read it carefully before investing.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investment by the fund in lower-rated and non-rated securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. The fund invests in foreign securities which involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater in emerging markets. Closed-end funds and ETFs are subject to additional risks that do not apply to conventional mutual funds, including the risks that the market price of the shares may trade at a discount to its net asset value (“nav”), an active secondary trading market may not develop or be maintained, or trading may be halted by the exchange in which they trade, which may impact a funds ability to sell its shares. In addition, the fund may incur higher expenses than if the fund did not invest in these types of securities. The fund may make short sales of securities, which involves the risk that losses may exceed the original amount invested

Bramshill investments, LLC is the investment adviser to the fund. The fund is distributed by Quasar Distributors, LLC.

*Morningstar Rating is for the Institutional Shares; other classes may have different performance characteristics. The Bramshill Income Performance Fund was rated against the following numbers of US Fund Nontraditional Bond funds over the following time period: 4 Stars (270 funds rated in the category) for the 3 year period ended March 31, 2021; Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

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 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.©Morningstar 2020.
