Seven Canyons Strategic Income Fund (WASIX)

Investment Objective

The Strategic Income Fund seeks to provide a stable return and capture current income. A secondary objective is long-term growth of capital and income. The fund invests primarily in income-producing domestic and foreign securities, which may include equity and fixed-income securities.

Investment Strategy

This fund is not managed as a balanced portfolio. At times, one type of security may make up a substantial portion of the fund, while at other times certain securities may have minimal or no representation. The fund may invest in exchange-traded funds (ETFs). It may also make short sales of securities and use derivatives for hedging and non-hedging purposes.

Investments in securities of foreign companies involve additional risks, including less liquidity, currency-rate fluctuations, political and economic instability and differences in financial reporting standards and securities market regulation. Investing in small and micro-cap funds will be more volatile and loss of principal could be greater than investing in large cap or more diversified funds.
