Equity Opportunity risk considerations: 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. Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITS) may be affected by economic conditions including credit risk, interest rate risk and other factors that affect property values, rents or occupancies of real estate. Foreign investments present additional risks due to currency fluctuations, economic and political factors, government regulations, differences in accounting standards and other factors. Highly leveraged companies tend to be more sensitive to issuer, political, market and economic developments especially during economic downturns or periods of rising interest rates. Although the Fund invests in companies that may be highly leveraged, the fund itself does not use leverage as an investment strategy. Groups of stocks, such as value and growth, go in and out of favor which may cause certain funds to underperform other equity funds.

Fixed income securities involve issuer, credit, inflation and interest rate risks. When interest rates go up, the value of fixed income securities, such as bonds, typically go down and investors may lose principal value. High yield securities involve greater risk than investment grade securities.

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.

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.
