impact characteristics as additive to an investment's risk/return profile. When assessing an investment's impact profile, EARNEST considers a wide range of factors, including but not limited to support for economic development, home ownership, and job creation."

Also, effective immediately, the paragraph under the section of the Fund's prospectus titled "Principal Investment Strategies and Risks - How Do The Funds Implement Their Investment Goals?", related to the Impact Bond Fund, is removed and replaced with the following:

"Impact Bond Fund. The Fund's sub-advisor, EARNEST Partners LLC ("EARNEST"), employs a bottom-up investment process, which focuses on the analysis of individual securities, that seeks to maximize duration-adjusted total return by investing in market sectors or securities it considers undervalued for their risk characteristics. EARNEST seeks to accomplish this through the implementation of a proprietary "Meta Data" Framework, fundamental review and risk management process. The first step involves a screening of the investable universe applying EARNEST's proprietary Meta Data Framework, which evaluates expected yield levels for various sectors and securities in comparison to actual yield levels. The Meta Data Framework analysis incorporates such factors as quality, duration, and structure. The second step involves in-depth, fundamental security analysis which focuses on credit risk, cash flow risk, credit spread volatility, the historical yield relationship between a security and the corresponding benchmark, and current market technical forces (e.g., supply and demand factors, liquidity, and price relative to par value).

EARNEST believes that entities that are cognizant of environmental, social, and governance issues tend to be more successful over time. As a result, EARNEST prefers to invest in government programs and companies that have sustainable operating models and seek to achieve positive aggregate societal impact. The Fund focuses on governmental programs and companies that seek to achieve positive aggregate societal impacts in up to four specific areas: empowering the individual, community development, environmental responsibility, and sustainable infrastructure. Investments may seek to achieve multiple areas of impact. This inclusive approach views positive impact characteristics as additive to an investment's risk/return profile.
