Fund Objective

The Fund’s investment objective is to seek long-term capital appreciation.

Investment Strategy

The Fund invests in futures contracts to gain dynamic exposure to global market opportunities across country equity indexes, fixed income, currencies, and commodities.

Portfolios are formed using proprietary quantitative innovations that emphasize characteristics such as, but not limited to: total return momentum, trends, seasonal patterns, carry measures, mean reversion and others, while simultaneously maximizing diversification based on changing estimates of volatility and correlations across global asset classes.

As portfolio weights and estimates of volatility and correlations change through time, the Fund will increase and decrease the gross exposure in an effort to maintain its target level of 12% annualized portfolio volatility.

Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Rational Funds. This and other important information about the Fund is contained in the prospectus, which can be obtained by calling (800) 253-0412 or at www.RationalMF.com. The prospectus should be read carefully before investing. The Rational Funds are distributed by Northern Lights Distributors, LLC member FINRA/SIPC.

Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The value of the Fund may decrease in response to the activities and financial prospects of an individual security in the Fund's portfolio. Investing in the commodities markets (directly or indirectly) may subject the Fund to greater volatility than investments in traditional securities. Commodity prices may be influenced by unfavorable weather, animal and plant disease, geologic and environmental factors as well as changes in government regulation such as tariffs, embargoes or burdensome production rules and restrictions. Derivatives are investments in which the value is "derived" from the value of an underlying asset, reference rate, or index. The value of derivatives may rise or fall more rapidly than other investments. For some derivatives, it is possible to lose more than the amount invested in the derivative. Emerging market securities tend to be more volatile and less liquid than securities traded in developed countries. The Fund is diversified and may invest a greater percentage of its assets in a particular issue and may own fewer securities than other mutual funds.

The Fund acquired all of the assets and liabilities of Chesapeake Fund, LLC (the “Predecessor Fund”) in a tax-free reorganization on December 31, 2016. In connection with this acquisition, shares of the Predecessor Fund were exchanged for Institutional Shares of the Fund. At the time of the reorganization, the Predecessor Fund had an investment objective and strategies that were, in all material respects, the same as those of the Fund, and was managed in a manner that, in all material respects, complied with the investment guidelines and restrictions of the Fund. Effective February 27, 2018, the Fund’s investment strategy changed and a new Sub-Advisor replaced the prior subadvisor. Consequently, prior performance may not reflect the Fund’s current operations.

Based on the risk-adjusted returns, RDMIX also rated 5-stars by Morningstar for the period ending 05/31/2022, for the 3-year period, out of 87 funds in the US Fund Macro Trading category. © 2022 Morningstar.

The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life sub-accounts, 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 Morningstar Rating does not include any adjustment for sales loads. 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 ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.
