  1. Distribution Yield: The annual yield an investor would receive if the most recent fund distribution remained the same going forward. The yield represents a single distribution from the fund and does not represent total return of the fund. The distribution yield is calculated by annualizing the most recent distribution and dividing by the NAV.
  2. 12-Month Dividend Yield: The yield an investor would have received if they had held the fund over the last twelve months assuming the most recent NAV. The 12-Month yield is calculated by summing any income distributions over the past twelve months and dividing by the NAV.
  3. 30-Day SEC Yield: A standard yield calculation developed by the Securities and Exchange Commission that allows for fairer comparisons among funds. This figure reflects the interest earned during the period after deducting the fund's expenses for the period.
  4. The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted.

    Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, international investments may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability in other nations. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors as well as increased volatility and lower trading volume.

    Diversification may not protect against market loss.

    Preferred stock is subject to many of the risks associated with debt securities, including interest rate risk. In addition, preferred stock may not pay a dividend, an issuer may suspend payment of dividends on preferred stock at any time, and in certain situations an issuer may call or redeem its preferred stock or convert it to common stock. High yielding stocks are often speculative, high risk investments. These companies can be paying out more than they can support and may reduce their dividends or stop paying dividends at any time, which could have a material adverse effect on the stock price of these companies and the Fund's performance.

    The potential benefits of investing in MLPs depend on them being treated as partnerships for federal income tax purposes. Further, if the MLP is deemed to be a corporation then its income would be subject to federal taxation at the entity level, reducing the amount of cash available for distributions to the fund which could result in a reduction of the fund's value. The risks associated with real estate investment trusts including interest rate risk which may cause certain REIT holdings to decline

    in value if interest rates increase. REITs are subject to general risks related to real estate including default risk and the possibility of decreasing property values. Diversification does not prevent all investment loss. Real estate is highly sensitive to general and local economic conditions and developments, and characterized by intense competition and periodic overbuilding. Many real estate companies, including REITs, utilize leverage (and some may be highly leveraged), which increases risk and could adversely affect a real estate company's operations and market value in periods of rising interest rates.

    ALTY may invest in MLPs, infrastructure investments, REITs, mortgage REITs, convertibles, preferred stocks, senior loans, currency trading, long/short credit, business development companies ("BDCs"), private equity, alternative strategy managed portfolios- and option-writing and therefore may be subject to all underlying risks. ALTY is non-diversified. ALTY may invest in derivatives, which are often more volatile than other investments and may magnify the Fund's gains or losses.

    There is no guarantee that dividends will be paid.
