Time Period

Expense Ratios

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 redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance data current to the most recent month end may be obtained by calling 855-822-3863. Performance data shown reflecting the A Class (maximum load) reflect a sales charge of 5.50%. Performance data shown "excluding load" does not reflect the deduction of the maximum sales load. If reflected, the load would reduce the performance quoted. For periods over one year, performance reflected is for the average annual returns.

The Fund is a newly registered mutual fund. As of the date of the Prospectus the Fund does not have a full calendar year of performance as a mutual fund. Prior performance shown below for the period prior to the Fund's registration as a mutual fund is for a series of the Long Only sub-fund of the Ecofin Vista Master Fund Limited, established in May 2019 (the “Predecessor Fund”), an unregistered Cayman Islands limited liability company. The Predecessor Fund was reorganized into the Fund by transferring substantially all of the Predecessor Fund’s assets to the Fund in exchange for Institutional Class shares of the Fund on October 15, 2021, the date that the Fund commenced operations (the “Reorganization”). The Predecessor Fund was managed in the same style as the Fund. The Sub-Adviser served as the investment adviser to the Predecessor Fund for the entire performance period shown and is responsible for the portfolio management and trading for the Fund. Each of the Fund’s portfolio managers was a portfolio manager of the Predecessor Fund at the time of the Reorganization. The Fund’s investment objective, policies, guidelines and restrictions are, in all material respects, the same as those of the Predecessor Fund.

The above information shows the returns of the Class B3 Shares of the Predecessor Fund since its inception in May 2019. The Class B3 Shares are similar to the Fund’s Institutional class but, at a point in time, were subject to performance and other fees. Although the management fee of the Fund is slightly higher than the Predecessor Fund, the Fund is not subject to the performance fee of the Predecessor Fund. From its inception through the date of the Reorganization, the Predecessor Fund was not subject to certain investment restrictions, diversification requirements and other restrictions of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”) or Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), which, if they had been applicable, might have adversely affected the Predecessor Fund’s performance. The Predecessor Fund's performance was calculated using a methodology of timeweighted total returns from official net asset values. Since the Reorganization, the Fund’s performance has been calculated using the standard formula set forth in rules promulgated by the
SEC, which differs in certain respects from the methods used to compute total return for the Predecessor Fund. Beta is a measure of a stock's volatility in relation to the overall market.

Index performance reflects no deduction for fees, expenses, or taxes. The MSCI ACWI Index captures large and mid cap representation across 23 Developed Markets and 27 Emerging Markets countries. The index covers approximately 85% of the global investable equity opportunity set. MSCI Net Total Return (Net TR) indices reinvest dividends after the deduction of withholding taxes, using (for international indexes) a tax rate applicable to non-resident institutional investors who do not benefit from double taxation treaties. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.
