Index data from 1/1/2000 through 3/31/2021. Global equities are represented by the MSCI World Total Return Index. “All-Weather” is represented by a 50/50 allocation to the MSCI World TR Index and the SG Trend Index, rebalanced every 12 months.

Unmanaged index returns do not reflect any fees, expenses, or sales charges. The referenced indexes are shown for general market comparisons and are not meant to represent the Fund.
Glossary and Risk Considerations:
Past performance does not guarantee future results. Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risk, charges, and expenses of the Fund. Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss. This and other important information about the Fund is contained in the prospectus, which can be obtained by calling (866) 738-1128 or at standpointfunds.com. The prospectus should be read carefully before investing. The Standpoint Multi-Asset Fund is distributed by Ultimus Fund Distributors, LLC.
Investing involves risk, including loss of principal. There is no guarantee that the fund will achieve its investment objective. Investing in underlying investment companies, including money market funds and ETFs, exposes the Fund to the investment performance (positive or negative) and risks of the investment companies. ETFs are subject to additional risks, including the risk that an ETF’s shares may trade at a market price that is above or below its NAV. The Fund will indirectly bear a portion of the fees and expenses of the underlying fund in which it invests, which are in addition to the Fund’s own direct fees and expenses.
Investment in the Fund carries certain risks. The fund will invest a percentage of its assets in derivatives, such as futures and commodities. The use of such derivatives and the resulting high portfolio turnover 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 derivates. The Fund may experience losses that exceed those experienced by funds that do not use futures contracts. The successful use of futures contracts draws upon the Adviser’s skill and experience with respect to such instruments and are subject to special risk considerations. The primary risks associated with the use of futures contracts are (a) the imperfect correlation between the change in market value of the instruments held by the Fund and the price of the forward or futures contract; (b) possible lack of a liquid secondary market for a forward or futures contract and the resulting inability to close a forward or futures contract when desired; (c) losses caused by unanticipated market movements, which are potentially unlimited; (d) the Adviser’s inability to predict correctly the direction of securities prices, interest rates, currency exchange rates, and other economic factors; (e) the possibility that the counterparty will default in the performance of its obligations; and (f) if the Fund has insufficient cash, it may have to sell securities from its portfolio to meet daily variation margin requirements, and the Fund may have to sell securities at a time when it may be disadvantageous to do so.
Foreign investing involves risks not typically associated with US investments, including adverse fluctuations in foreign currency values, adverse political, social, and economic developments, less liquidity, greater volatility, less developed or less efficient trading markets, political instability and differing auditing and legal standards.
Drawdown is the peak-to-trough decline during a specific period.
