CEMP uses a strategic beta indexing approach that combines fundamental criteria with volatility weighting to seek to improve an investor’s ability to outperform traditional indexing strategies.

FUND OBJECTIVE

The Fund seeks to provide investment results that track the performance of the CEMP US Large Cap 500 Long/Cash Volatility Weighted Index (the “Long/Cash Index”) before fees and expenses.

INDEX DESCRIPTION
The Long/Cash Index tactically reduces its exposure to the equity markets during periods of significant market declines and reinvests when market prices have further declined or rebounded. The CEMP US Large Cap 500 Long/Cash Volatility Weighted Index is based on the month-end price of the CEMP US Large Cap 500 Volatility Weighted Index (the “Reference Index”).

LONG/CASH METHODOLOGY
The exit and reinvestment methodology of the Long/Cash Index is based on the month-end value of the Reference Index relative to its All-Time Highest Daily Closing Value (“AHDCV”). AHDCV is the highest daily closing price the Reference Index has achieved since its inception date.

Exit Strategy:
All measurements for the exit strategy are based on month-end values of the Reference Index.
• If the Reference Index has declined 10% (or more) from its AHDCV, the Long/Cash Index will liquidate 75% of its equity exposure at month-end.
• When the Long/Cash Index is less than 100% invested in its equity securities, the remaining assets in the Long/Cash Index will be invested in 30-day Treasury bills (or equivalents).

Reinvestment Strategy:
All measurements for re-investment are based upon month-end values of the
Reference Index.
• If the Reference Index has increased back to or above the point of exit (10% decline from AHDCV), the assets that were liquidated will be reinvested, resulting in the Long/Cash Index being 100% invested in equity securities.
• If the Reference Index has declined further and is now 20% or more below the Reference Index’s AHDCV, 25% of the Long/Cash Index will be reinvested back in its equity securities. The Long/Cash Index will then be approximately 50% invested in equity securities.
• If the Reference Index has declined further and is now 30% or more below the Reference Index’s AHDCV, another 25% of the Long/Cash Index will be reinvested in its equity securities. The Long/Cash Index will then be approximately 75% invested in equity securities.
• If the Reference Index has declined further and is now 40% or more below the Reference Index’s AHDCV, another 25% of the Long/Cash Index will be reinvested in its equity securities. The Long/Cash Index will then be approximately 100% invested in equity securities.

Performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, so shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance during periods of exceptional market conditions should not be expected to be repeated in a normal market environment. Current performance may be lower or higher than that cited. 

Class A performance quoted "with maximum sales load" reflects the current maximum sales charge of 5.75%. The sales load on Class C shares is deferred and will be charged if you redeem shares within one year of purchase. The contingent deferred sales load is 1.00% of the purchase or sale price of the shares, whichever is less. Please read the prospectus carefully for more information on sales charges as they do not apply in all cases and, if applied, are reduced for larger purchases. Any sales charges are in addition to the Fund's fees and expenses as detailed in the Fund's most current prospectus. The performance quoted at NAV or "without sales load" does not reflect any sales charge. If a sales charge were included, the performance stated above would be lower. 

Total return figures reflect an expense limitation in effect during the periods shown; without such limitation, the performance shown would have been lower. Performance results assume the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.


The Adviser has contractually agreed to waive a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse certain expenses through at least October 31, 2017. The Adviser is permitted to recoup fees waived/expenses reimbursed for up to 3 years after the fiscal year in which the waiver/reimbursement took place, subject to certain limitations. Please read the prospectus for details.

Returns are average annual total returns, except those for periods of less than one year, which are cumulative.

Alpha is the excess return of a fund relative to the return of a benchmark index. Beta is a measure of the volatility, or systematic risk, of a security or portfolio relative to the market or a benchmark. R-Squared (R2 ) is a statistical measure that represents the percentage of a fund’s or security’s movements that can be explained by movements in a benchmark index. Information Ratio is a measure of the value added per unit of active risk by a manager over the benchmark. Sharpe Ratio is the average return earned in excess of the risk-free rate per unit of volatility or total risk. Standard deviation is a measure of the dispersion of a set of data from its mean.

An investor should consider the fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing or sending money. This and other important information about the fund can be found in the fund’s prospectus, or, if applicable, the summary prospectus. To obtain a copy, visit the prospectus page. Read the prospectus carefully before investing.

All investing involves risk, including potential loss of principal. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective. Strategies intended to hedge risk may be partly or wholly unsuccessful. The value of the Fund’s investments in fixed income securities will fluctuate with changes in interest rates. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities owned by the Fund. Conversely, if rates fall, the value of the fixed income securities generally increases. The Fund is not actively managed and does not, therefore, seek returns in excess of the Index. The Fund’s return may not match the return of the Index. The value of the equity securities in which the Fund invests may decline in response to developments affecting individual companies and/or general economic conditions. The Fund may be subject to liquidity risk if the Advisor is not able to acquire or sell underlying securities held by the Fund at a price that is acceptable to the Advisor. Indexes are unmanaged statistical composites and their returns do not include payment of any sales charges or fees an investor would pay to purchase the securities they represent. Such costs would lower performance. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.

The Funds are distributed by Victory Capital Advisers, Inc. ("VCA"), member FINRA and SIPC. Find out more about the background of this firm on FINRA's BrokerCheck.

Characteristics
Weighted average market cap is the average market capitalization of all companies in a portfolio with each company weighted according to its percent of the portfolio.  EPS is the portion of a company's profit allocated to each outstanding share of common stock. Earnings per share serves as an indicator of a company's profitability. Long-Term Debt/Capitalization is an indicator of financial leverage. Shows long-term debt as a proportion of the capital available. Determined by dividing long-term debt by the sum of long-term debt, preferred stock and common stockholder's equity. Average Price/Book Ratio: Compares a stock’s market value to the value of total assets less total liabilities (book value). Avg Price/Earnings Ratio (Last 12 Months & Next 12 Months) shows the multiple of earnings at which a stock sells. Determined by dividing current stock price by earnings per share for the relevant 12 month period. Earnings per share for the P/E ratio are determined by dividing earnings for the relevant 12 month period by the number of common shares outstanding. Return on Equity is net income divided by common equity. A measure of how well a company used reinvested earnings to generate additional earnings. Turnover ratio is the percentage of a mutual fund or other investment's holdings that have been replaced in a given year, which varies by the type of mutual fund, its investment objective and/or the portfolio manager's investing style.

Fact Sheet
CEMP uses a strategic beta indexing approach that combines fundamental criteria with volatility weighting to seek to improve an investor’s ability to outperform traditional indexing strategies.

FUND OBJECTIVE

The Fund seeks to provide investment results that track the performance of the CEMP US Large Cap 500 Long/Cash Volatility Weighted Index (the “Long/Cash Index”) before fees and expenses.

INDEX DESCRIPTION
The Long/Cash Index tactically reduces its exposure to the equity markets during periods of significant market declines and reinvests when market prices have further declined or rebounded. The CEMP US Large Cap 500 Long/Cash Volatility Weighted Index is based on the month-end price of the CEMP US Large Cap 500 Volatility Weighted Index (the “Reference Index”).

LONG/CASH METHODOLOGY
The exit and reinvestment methodology of the Long/Cash Index is based on the month-end value of the Reference Index relative to its All-Time Highest Daily Closing Value (“AHDCV”). AHDCV is the highest daily closing price the Reference Index has achieved since its inception date.

Exit Strategy:
All measurements for the exit strategy are based on month-end values of the Reference Index.
• If the Reference Index has declined 10% (or more) from its AHDCV, the Long/Cash Index will liquidate 75% of its equity exposure at month-end.
• When the Long/Cash Index is less than 100% invested in its equity securities, the remaining assets in the Long/Cash Index will be invested in 30-day Treasury bills (or equivalents).

Reinvestment Strategy:
All measurements for re-investment are based upon month-end values of the
Reference Index.
• If the Reference Index has increased back to or above the point of exit (10% decline from AHDCV), the assets that were liquidated will be reinvested, resulting in the Long/Cash Index being 100% invested in equity securities.
• If the Reference Index has declined further and is now 20% or more below the Reference Index’s AHDCV, 25% of the Long/Cash Index will be reinvested back in its equity securities. The Long/Cash Index will then be approximately 50% invested in equity securities.
• If the Reference Index has declined further and is now 30% or more below the Reference Index’s AHDCV, another 25% of the Long/Cash Index will be reinvested in its equity securities. The Long/Cash Index will then be approximately 75% invested in equity securities.
• If the Reference Index has declined further and is now 40% or more below the Reference Index’s AHDCV, another 25% of the Long/Cash Index will be reinvested in its equity securities. The Long/Cash Index will then be approximately 100% invested in equity securities.

An investor should consider the fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing or sending money. This and other important information about the fund can be found in the fund’s prospectus, or, if applicable, the summary prospectus. To obtain a copy, visit the prospectus page. Read the prospectus carefully before investing.

All investing involves risk, including potential loss of principal. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective. Strategies intended to hedge risk may be partly or wholly unsuccessful. The value of the Fund’s investments in fixed income securities will fluctuate with changes in interest rates. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities owned by the Fund. Conversely, if rates fall, the value of the fixed income securities generally increases. The Fund is not actively managed and does not, therefore, seek returns in excess of the Index. The Fund’s return may not match the return of the Index. The value of the equity securities in which the Fund invests may decline in response to developments affecting individual companies and/or general economic conditions. The Fund may be subject to liquidity risk if the Advisor is not able to acquire or sell underlying securities held by the Fund at a price that is acceptable to the Advisor. Indexes are unmanaged statistical composites and their returns do not include payment of any sales charges or fees an investor would pay to purchase the securities they represent. Such costs would lower performance. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.

The Funds are distributed by Victory Capital Advisers, Inc. ("VCA"), member FINRA and SIPC. Find out more about the background of this firm on FINRA's BrokerCheck.

Victory Capital Management Inc., an affiliate of VCA, is the investment advisor to the Funds and receives a fee from the Funds for its services.
