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.
