The Fund’s sole investment objective is long-term growth of capital.

Under normal circumstances, the Adviser invests at least 80% of the Fund’s assets in stocks of U.S. companies with small market capitalizations (the “80% Policy”). The 80% Policy can be changed without shareholder approval upon at least 60 days’ prior written notice. A portion of the Fund’s assets may also be invested in stocks of U.S. mid-market capitalization companies. Although there is not a universal definition, the Fund considers a “small market capitalization company” to be a company with a market capitalization that is less than the value of the largest capitalization company in the Russell 2000 Index or $12 billion, whichever is greater. A company’s categorization is based on its market capitalization at the time of purchase by the Fund.

*EULAV Asset Management (the "Adviser") has contractually agreed to waive through May 1, 2025 certain Fund-wide fees and further assume certain Fund-wide expenses to the extent necessary to limit such expenses (excluding brokerage commissions, interest, taxes, and certain non-routine Fund-wide expenses) to 0.90% of the average daily net assets of each class (the "Fund-level Expense Limitation"). In addition, the Adviser has "d to pay or reimburse certain class-specific fees and expenses so that the Institutional Class bears its class-specific fees and expenses at the same percentage of its average daily net assets as the Investor Class’s class-specific fees and expenses (excluding 12b-1 fees and certain non-routine class-specific expenses) (the "Class Expense Limitation," together with the Fund-level Expense Limitation, the "Expense Limitations"). Each Expense Limitation can be terminated with the agreement of the Fund’s Board. The Adviser may subsequently recover from a class any fees waived and expenses assumed within three years from the month in which the waiver or assumption occurred for such class, to the extent its expense ratio is less than the applicable Expense Limitation or, if lower, the expense limitation in effect when the waiver or assumption occurred. The Fund's performance would be lower in the absence of such waivers.

The performance data quoted herein represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Market volatility can dramatically impact the fund's short term performance.

The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, 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 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 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three- year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.
