Rational Funds, a family of funds rooted in the investment philosophy of applying a rational approach to investing, is proud to announce that its Rational/NuWave Enhanced Market Opportunity Fund (NUXIX) was recognized by the HFM US Performance Awards 2019 for Best 40 Act Mutual Fund. The HFM US Performance Awards showcase and reward those hedge fund strategies that have outperformed their peers over the past 12 months. The award was presented to members of the NuWave and Rational teams at an awards ceremony in New York on November 20, 2019.

“We partnered with NuWave because of a shared sense of purpose in delivering what we believe to be distinct and rational products to the market,” commented Jerry Szilagyi, CEO of Rational Funds. “Winning an award of this caliber says a lot about this team and the benefits of combining their experience with state-of-the-art machine learning technology.”

NUXIX seeks long-term capital appreciation by combining an actively managed U.S. equities component and a broadly diversified managed futures component, to provide both long and short exposures across a wide variety of financial and commodity markets.

Important Risk Disclosures

Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. There is no assurance that the fund will achieve its investment objectives. The Fund will invest a percentage of its assets in derivatives, such as futures and options contracts. The use of such derivatives and the resulting high portfolio turn-over may expose the Fund to additional risks that it would not be subject to if it invested directly in the securities and commodities underlying those derivatives. The Fund may experience losses that exceed those experienced by funds that do not use futures contracts, options and hedging strategies. Investing in commodities markets may subject the Fund to greater volatility than investments in traditional securities. Currency trading risks include market risk, credit risk and country risk. Foreign investing involves risks not typically associated with U.S. investments. Changes in interest rates and the liquidity of certain investments could affect the Fund’s overall performance. The Fund is non-diversified and as a result, changes in the value of a single security may have significant effect on the Fund’s value. When the Fund invests in fixed income securities, the value of your investment in the Fund will fluctuate with changes in interest rates. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities or derivatives owned by the Fund. Furthermore, the use of leveraging can magnify the potential for gain or loss and amplify the effects of market volatility on the Fund’s share price. The Fund is subject to regulatory change and tax risks; changes to current rules could increase costs associated with an investment in the Fund. These factors may affect the value of your investment.

The Fund acquired all of the assets and liabilities of NuWave Equity Enhanced Fund, LP (the “Predecessor Fund”) in a tax-free reorganization on March 1, 2018. In connection with this acquisition, shares of the Predecessor Fund were exchanged for Institutional Shares of the Fund.  The Fund’s investment objectives, policies, restrictions, and guidelines are, in all material respects, equivalent to the Predecessor Fund’s investment objectives, policies, restrictions, and guidelines. The Fund’s sub-adviser was the adviser to the Predecessor Fund. The financial statements for the Predecessor Fund can be found in the Fund’s Statement of Additional Information. The performance information set forth above reflects the historical performance of the Predecessor Fund shares.

From its inception date, the predecessor limited partnership was not subject to certain investment restrictions, diversification requirements and other restrictions of the 1940 Act of the Code, if they had been applicable, it might have adversely affected its performance. In addition, the predecessor limited partnership was not subject to sales loads that would have adversely affected performance.

Performance of the predecessor fund is not an indicator of future results.
