1 MORNINGSTAR RATING:
The Overall Morningstar Rating™ for a fund is derived from the
weighted-average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5-
and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.
For each fund with at least a 3-year history, Morningstar calculates a
Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure
that accounts for variations in a fund's monthly performance (including
the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees), placing more
emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance.
The top 10% of the funds in a broad asset class receive 5 stars, the
next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5%
receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is
counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated
separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution

Emerging markets risk considerations: Foreign investments present additional risks due to currency fluctuations, economic and political factors, government regulations, differences in accounting standards, reduced liquidity and other factors. Investments in emerging markets, foreign currency exchange contracts, and a focus on particular countries, regions, industries, sectors or types of investments may involve greater risks. Small- and mid-cap stocks are more susceptible to market volatility due to risks such as lack of management experience, product diversification, financial resources, competitive strength, and liquidity. Groups of stocks, such as value and growth, go in and out of favor, which may cause certain funds to underperform other equity funds.
The Fund may, at times, experience higher-than-average portfolio turnover, which may generate significant taxable gains and increased trading expenses, which, in turn, may lower the Fund’s return.
Unconstrained risk considerations: The Scout Unconstrained Bond Fund employes an unconstrained investment approach, which creates considerable exposure to certain types of securities that present significant volatility in the Fund's performance, particularly over short periods of time. Investment returns and fund share value will fluctuate, and investors may lose money by investing.
