Summary prospectus
Delaware Ivy Managed International Opportunities Fund

(formerly, Ivy Managed International Opportunities Fund)

On April 30, 2021, the funds in this prospectus (Funds) became part of Delaware Funds® by Macquarie and Delaware Management Company became each Fund's investment manager (hereinafter, the Funds and other legacy Ivy Funds are referred to as Transaction Funds to differentiate them from the other Delaware Funds by Macquarie, the non-Transaction Funds).

What is the Fund's investment objective?

Delaware Ivy Managed International Opportunities Fund seeks to provide capital growth and appreciation.

What are the Fund's fees and expenses?

Delaware Distributors, L.P. (Distributor), the Fund's distributor, and/or Waddell & Reed Services Company, doing business as WI Services Company (WISC), the Fund's transfer agent, have voluntarily agreed to waive all or a portion of its 12b-1 fees and/or shareholder servicing fees to cap the total annual ordinary fund operating expenses (which would exclude interest, taxes, brokerage commissions, acquired fund fees and expenses and extraordinary expenses, if any) in order to allow the Class Y expense rate to float to the Class A expense rate and to allow the Class R6 expense rate to float to the Class I expense rate from July 29, 2021 until such time as the voluntary expense cap is discontinued. This waiver is voluntary and may be modified or discontinued by the Distributor or WISC at any time, and without further notice.

The table below describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy and hold shares of the Fund. You may qualify for sales-charge discounts if you and your family invest, or agree to invest in the future, at least $50,000 in Transaction Funds. More information about these and other discounts is available from your financial intermediary, in the Fund's Prospectus under the section entitled 'About your account,' and in the Fund's statement of additional information (SAI) under the section entitled 'Purchasing Shares.' The Fund's Class B shares are not available for purchase by new or existing investors, but are available for dividend reinvestment and exchanges.

For Class A shares, a 1% contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC) is only imposed on Class A shares that were purchased prior to July 1, 2021 at net asset value (NAV) for $1 million or more that are subsequently redeemed within 12 months of purchase, or on shares that were purchased after July 1, 2021 at net asset value (NAV) for $1 million or more that are subsequently redeemed within 18 months of purchase. For Class B shares, the CDSC declines from 5% for redemptions within the first year of purchase, to 4% for redemptions within the second year, to 3% for redemptions within the third and fourth years, to 2% for redemptions within the fifth year, to 1% for redemptions within the sixth year and to 0% for redemptions after the sixth year. For Class C shares, a 1% CDSC applies to redemptions within 12 months of purchase.

2

The 'Total annual fund operating expenses' ratio shown above does not correlate to the expense ratio shown in the Financial Highlights table because that ratio does not include the 'Acquired fund fees and expenses.'

3

Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses sets forth the Fund's pro rata portion of the cumulative expenses charged by the registered investment companies (RICs) in which the Fund invested during the last fiscal year. The actual Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses will vary with changes in the allocations of the Fund's assets. The Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses shown are based on the total expense ratio of the RICs for the RICs' most recent fiscal period. These expenses are not direct costs paid by Fund shareholders, and are not used to calculate the Fund's NAV.

4

Through July 29, 2022, Delaware Management Company (Manager), the Fund's investment manager, Distributor, and/or WISC, have contractually agreed to reimburse sufficient management fees, 12b-1 fees and/or shareholder servicing fees to cap the total annual ordinary fund operating expenses (which would exclude interest, taxes, brokerage commissions, acquired fund fees and expenses and extraordinary expenses, if any) as follows: Class A shares at 0.46%; Class B shares at 1.25%; Class C shares at 1.25%; Class I shares at 0.16%; Class R shares at 0.72%; and Class Y shares at 0.38%. Prior to that date, the expense limitation may not be terminated without the consent of the Board of Trustees (Board).

5

Due to a separate contractual class waiver, certain common expenses applicable to all share classes also may be waived to cap total annual ordinary fund operating expenses, which may serve to reduce the expense ratio of certain share classes.

Example

This example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds. The example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then redeem all of your shares at the end of those periods. In addition, the example shows expenses for Class B shares, assuming those shares were not redeemed at the end of those periods. The example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and reflects the applicable

expense waivers and reimbursements for the 1-year contractual period and the total operating expenses without waivers for years 2 through 10. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:

Portfolio turnover

The Fund does not incur transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells shares of the underlying funds (or 'turns over' its portfolio), but it could incur transaction costs if it were to buy and sell other types of securities directly, including shares of unaffiliated funds. If the Fund were to buy and sell other types of securities directly, a higher portfolio turnover rate could indicate higher transaction costs and could result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. Such costs, if incurred, would not be reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example and would affect the Fund's performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund's portfolio turnover rate was 17% of the average value of its portfolio.

What are the Fund's principal investment strategies?

Delaware Ivy Managed International Opportunities Fund is a 'fund-of-funds' that seeks to achieve its objective by providing investors a diversified portfolio of international stocks by investing primarily in Class R6 shares of certain Delaware Funds global/international mutual funds, as identified below. Each underlying Delaware Fund, in turn, invests in a diversified portfolio of foreign equity securities of issuers in developed as well as emerging markets, and, to a lesser extent, in US equity securities.

The Board, based upon the recommendation of Delaware Management Company (Manager), has authorized the following target allocation ranges for investment of the Fund's assets in specific underlying funds, although the Manager expects the allocation will change over time.

The Manager monitors the Fund's holdings and cash flow and, in general, manages them as needed in order to maintain the Fund's target allocations. The Manager does not intend to trade actively among

4

the underlying funds nor does it intend to attempt to capture short-term market opportunities. However, in seeking to enhance performance, the Manager may change allocations within the stated ranges. The Manager may modify the above-specified target asset allocations for the Fund and also may modify, from time to time, the underlying funds selected for the Fund. In addition, the percentage specified at the high end of the investment range for an underlying fund is a target, and from time to time, the Manager or market movements (or a combination of both) may cause the Fund's investment in an underlying fund to temporarily exceed its target percentage.

By owning shares of the underlying funds, the Fund indirectly holds primarily equity securities of international, including emerging market and, to a lesser extent, US companies of any size.

The Manager may permit its affiliates, Macquarie Investment Management Global Limited (MIMGL) and Macquarie Funds Management Hong Kong Limited, to execute Fund security trades on behalf of the Manager. The Manager may also seek quantitative support from MIMGL.

What are the principal risks of investing in the Fund?

Investing in any mutual fund involves the risk that you may lose part or all of the money you invest. Over time, the value of your investment in the Fund will increase and decrease according to changes in the value of the securities in the Fund's portfolio. An investment in the Fund may not be appropriate for all investors. The Fund's principal risks include:

Market risk - The risk that all or a majority of the securities in a certain market - such as the stock or bond market - will decline in value because of factors such as adverse political or economic conditions, future expectations, investor confidence, or heavy institutional selling.

Fund of funds risk - The ability of the Fund to meet its investment objective is directly related to its target allocations among the underlying funds and the ability of those funds to meet their investment objectives. The Fund's share price will likely change daily based on the performance of the underlying funds in which it invests. In general, the Fund is subject to the same risks as those of the underlying funds it holds. The Manager has the authority to select and replace underlying funds. The Manager is subject to a potential conflict of interest in doing so because the Manager serves as the investment manager to the underlying funds and the advisory fees paid by some of the underlying funds are higher than fees paid by other underlying funds. It is important to note, however, that the Manager has a fiduciary duty to the Fund and must act in the Fund's best interests.

Foreign risk - The risk that foreign securities (particularly in emerging markets) may be adversely affected by political instability, changes in currency exchange rates, inefficient markets and higher transaction costs, foreign economic conditions, the imposition of economic or trade sanctions, or inadequate or different regulatory and accounting standards.

Currency risk - The risk that fluctuations in exchange rates between the US dollar and foreign currencies and between various foreign currencies may cause the value of an investment to decline.

Emerging markets risk - The risk associated with international investing will be greater in emerging markets than in more developed foreign markets because, among other things, emerging markets may

5

Summary prospectus
Delaware Ivy Managed International Opportunities Fund

have less stable political and economic environments. In addition, there often is substantially less publicly available information about issuers and such information tends to be of a lesser quality. Economic markets and structures tend to be less mature and diverse and the securities markets may also be smaller, less liquid, and subject to greater price volatility.

Investment company securities risk - Investment in other investment companies typically reflects the risks of the types of securities in which the investment companies invest. When the Fund invests in another investment company, shareholders of the Fund bear their proportionate share of the other investment company's fees and expenses as well as their share of the Fund's fees and expenses, which could result in the duplication of certain fees.

IBOR risk - The risk that changes related to the use of the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) or similar interbank offered rates ('IBORs,' such as the Euro Overnight Index Average (EONIA)) could have adverse impacts on financial instruments that reference LIBOR or a similar rate. While some instruments may contemplate a scenario where LIBOR or a similar rate is no longer available by providing for an alternative rate setting methodology, not all instruments have such fallback provisions and the effectiveness of replacement rates is uncertain. The abandonment of LIBOR and similar rates could affect the value and liquidity of instruments that reference such rates, especially those that do not have fallback provisions. The use of alternative reference rate products may impact investment strategy performance.

Active management and selection risk - The risk that the securities selected by a fund's management will underperform the markets, the relevant indices, or the securities selected by other funds with similar investment objectives and investment strategies. The securities and sectors selected may vary from the securities and sectors included in the relevant index.

Additional information about principal investment strategies, other investments and risks of the underlying funds is provided in each underlying fund's prospectus.

The Manager is an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Macquarie Group Limited (MGL). Other than Macquarie Bank Limited (MBL), a subsidiary of MGL and an affiliate of the Manager, none of the entities noted are authorized deposit-taking institutions for the purposes of the Banking Act 1959 (Commonwealth of Australia). The obligations of these entities do not represent deposits or other liabilities of MBL. MBL does not guarantee or otherwise provide assurance in respect of the obligations of these entities, unless noted otherwise. The Fund is governed by US laws and regulations.

How has Delaware Ivy Managed International Opportunities Fund performed?

The bar chart and table below provide some indication of the risks of investing in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from year to year and by showing how the Fund's average annual total returns for the 1-, 5-, and 10-year periods compare with those of a broad measure of market performance. On April 30, 2021, the Fund became part of Delaware Funds® by Macquarie and Delaware Management Company became the Fund's investment manager; however, the portfolio managers have not changed. The returns shown from before April 30, 2021 are from the Fund's prior

investment manager. The Fund's past performance (before and after taxes) is not necessarily an indication of how it will perform in the future. The returns reflect any expense caps in effect during these periods. The returns would be lower without the expense caps. You may obtain the Fund's most recently available month-end performance by calling 888 923-3355 or by visiting our website at ivyinvestments.com.

Effective Feb. 11, 2014, the name of one of the Fund's underlying funds, Ivy Pacific Opportunities Fund, was changed to Ivy Emerging Markets Equity Fund, and its strategy was changed to reflect a concentration in emerging market equity securities. Performance prior to such time in part reflects Ivy Pacific Opportunities Fund's former strategy to invest primarily in Pacific region equity securities, and the Fund's performance may have differed if Ivy Emerging Markets Equity Fund's current strategy had been in place. In addition, in November 2014, Ivy International Growth Fund increased its emphasis on investment in the stocks of US companies. Also, effective Jan. 1, 2015, the name of Ivy International Growth Fund was changed to Ivy Global Growth Fund and its strategy was changed to reflect a global focus. Performance prior to January 2015 reflects Ivy Global Growth Fund's former international strategy and may have differed if Ivy Global Growth Fund's current strategy that includes investing globally had been in place.

Calendar year-by-year total return (Class A)

As of June 30, 2021, the Fund's Class A shares had a calendar year-to-date return of 11.54%. During the periods illustrated in this bar chart, Class A's highest quarterly return was 20.38% for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, and its lowest quarterly return was -25.36% for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. The maximum Class A sales charge of 5.75%, which is normally deducted when you purchase shares, is not reflected in the highest/lowest quarterly returns or in the bar chart. If this fee were included, the returns would be less than those shown. The average annual total returns in the table below do include the sales charge.

You may purchase or redeem shares on any business day at the Fund's NAV per share next calculated after your order is received in proper form by Waddell & Reed Services Company, doing business as WI Services Company (WISC) if your account is held directly by the Fund (Direct Accounts) or by your broker-dealer or other financial intermediary if your account is held by the financial intermediary on a networked or omnibus basis with the Funds. Purchases and redemptions are subject to any applicable sales charge. For Direct Accounts, requests to purchase or redeem shares may be submitted in writing to WISC at P.O. Box 219722, Kansas City, MO 64121-9722 (all share classes), by telephone (888 923-3355) (Class A, B, and C shares) or via the internet if you have completed an Express Transaction Authorization Form (ivyinvestments.com) (Class A, B, and C shares). If your shares are not held in a Direct Account (such as for Class R6 shares and Class R shares), please contact your broker-dealer, financial advisor, plan administrator, third-party record keeper or other applicable financial intermediary to purchase or sell shares of the Fund. The Fund's Class B shares are not available for purchase by new or existing investors, but are available for dividend reinvestment and exchanges.

The Fund's initial and subsequent investment minimums generally are as follows, although the Fund and/or the Distributor may reduce or waive the minimums in some cases.

For Class A and Class C shares, the minimum investment is generally $750, and subsequent investment can be made in any amount. For accounts opened with Automatic Investment Service (AIS), the minimum investment is generally $150, and subsequent investment can be made for as little as $50. For accounts established through payroll deductions and salary deferrals minimum investments may be made in any amount. For Class I, Class R6, Class R, and Class Y shares, please check with your broker-dealer, plan administrator or third-party record keeper for information about minimum investment requirements.

Please refer to the Fund's prospectus and statement of additional information for more details regarding the purchase and sale of Fund shares.

Tax information

The Fund's distributions generally are taxable to you as ordinary income, capital gains, or some combination of both, unless you are investing through a tax-advantaged arrangement, such as a 401(k) plan or an IRA, in which case your distributions may be taxed as ordinary income when withdrawn from the tax-advantaged account.

Payments to broker/dealers and other financial intermediaries

If you purchase shares of the Fund through a broker/dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund and its related companies may pay the intermediary for the sale of Fund shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker/dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary's website for more information.
