Fund Description

The Fund uses a “passive management” (or indexing) approach to track the performance, before fees and expenses, of the Index.
AlphaClone Hedge Fund Masters Index
The Index utilizes a proprietary, quantitative Clone Score methodology developed by AlphaClone, Inc. (“AlphaClone” or the “Index Provider”), the Fund’s index provider, to replicate the five most heavily weighted U.S. equity securities from each of the ten hedge funds and institutional investors with the highest Clone Scores (as described below). The Index was established by AlphaClone in 2017 and is composed of up to 50 U.S.-listed equity securities of small, mid, or large capitalization companies and reconstituted quarterly.
AlphaClone’s Clone Score methodology analyzes the historical returns of a given hedge fund’s or institutional investor’s holdings and assigns a Clone Score (i.e., ranking) to each such hedge fund and institutional investor based on such returns. Clone Scores are recalculated semi-annually. The Clone Score methodology incorporates information from hedge fund and institutional investor public disclosure filings (e.g., Form 13F filings) with the SEC to identify their disclosed holdings at the end of each quarter. Index constituents are equal weighted at the time of each reconstitution, although each individual constituent is limited to a 5% weighting at the time of each reconstitution.
The equity securities that may comprise the Index include, but are not limited to, U.S.-listed common and preferred stock of domestic and foreign companies, including those in emerging markets, real estate investment trusts (“REITs”), master limited partnerships (“MLPs”), and American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”). Such securities may be issued by small, mid, or large capitalization companies and must meet certain liquidity thresholds at the time of reconstitution to be included in the Index.
The Fund’s Investment Strategy
The Fund attempts to invest all, or substantially all, of its assets in the component securities that make up the Index. The Fund expects that, over time, the correlation between the Fund’s performance and that of the Index, before fees and expenses, will be 95% or better.
The Fund will generally use a “replication” strategy to achieve its investment objective, meaning the Fund generally will invest in all of the component securities of the Index in approximately the same proportion as in the Index. However, the Fund may use a “representative sampling” strategy, meaning it may invest in a sample of the securities in the Index whose risk, return and other characteristics closely resemble the risk, return and other characteristics of the Index as a whole, when the Fund’s investment adviser believes it is in the best interests of the Fund (e.g., when replicating the Index involves practical difficulties or substantial costs, an Index constituent becomes temporarily illiquid, unavailable or less liquid, or as a result of legal restrictions or limitations that apply to the Fund but not to the Index).
The Fund generally may invest in securities or other investments not included in the Index, but which the Fund’s investment adviser believes will help the Fund track the Index. For example, the Fund may invest in securities that are not components of the Index to reflect various corporate actions and other changes to the Index (such as reconstitutions, additions and deletions). On a day-to-day basis, the Fund also may hold money market mutual funds or short-term debt instruments that have terms-to-maturity of less than 397 days and exhibit high quality credit profiles, including U.S. government securities and repurchase agreements.
To the extent the Index concentrates (i.e., holds more than 25% of its total assets) in the securities of a particular industry or group of related industries, the Fund will concentrate its investments to approximately the same extent as the Index. Securities in the consumer, industrial, and information technology sectors are expected to represent a significant portion of the Index, although specific sector exposures may change over time.
