Disclaimer: Trillium’s Small / Mid Cap Fund may invest in foreign securities, which are subject to the risks of currency fluctuations, political and economic instability and differences in accounting methods. Investing in foreign securities is riskier than investing in domestic securities. The Fund invests in smaller and medium companies, which involve additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility. Trillium’s Small / Mid Cap Fund environmental policy could cause it to make or avoid investments that could result in the portfolio underperforming similar funds that do not have an environmental policy. There are no assurances that the fund will achieve its objective and/or strategy. Short term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the fund’s future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns. Diversification does not assure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market. Trillium’s Small / Mid Cap Fund is distributed by Quasar Distributors, LLC.
