The Sierra Tactical All Asset Fund invests in underlying funds, including mutual funds and ETFs. In some instances it may be less expensive for an investor to invest in the underlying funds directly. There is also a risk that investment advisers of those underlying funds may make investment decisions that are detrimental to the performance of the Fund. Investments in underlying funds that own small and mid-capitalization companies may be more vulnerable than larger, more established organizations to adverse business or economic developments. Investments in underlying funds that invest in foreign equity and debt securities could subject the Fund to greater risks including currency fluctuation, economic conditions, and different governmental and accounting standards.
The Sierra Strategic Income Fund invests in underlying funds that may invest in foreign emerging market countries that may have relatively unstable governments, weaker economics, and less-developed legal systems, which do not protect investors. In general, the price of a fixed income security falls when interest rates rise. Underlying fund investments in lower-quality bonds, known as high-yield or junk bonds, present greater risk than bonds of higher quality. Municipal securities are subject to the risk that legislative changes and economic developments may adversely affect the value of the Fund's investments. REIT risks include declines from deteriorating economic conditions, changes in property value, and defaults by borrower. Underlying funds that own small and mid-capitalization companies may be more vulnerable than larger, more established organizations to adverse business or economic developments. In some instances it may be less expensive for an investor to invest in the underlying funds directly.
