Past performance is no guarantee, nor is it indicative, of future results. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance shown. This data represents past performance and investors should understand that investment returns and principal values fluctuate, so that when you redeem your investment it may be worth more or less than its original cost. Current month-end performance data, which may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted, may be obtained by calling toll-free, 1-800-982-4372.
Periods greater than one year are annualized. FPA Global Equity Fund ("Fund") performance is shown net of all fees and expenses. Fund performance is calculated on a total return basis which includes reinvestment of all distributions. Fund performance does not reflect the deduction of taxes that a shareholder would pay on Fund distributions or the redemption of Fund shares, which would lower these figures. Fund NAV represents the closing price of underlying securities. Closing Market Price is calculated using the price which investors buy and sell ETF shares in the market. The Closing Market Price returns in the table were calculated using the closing price as of the end of the periods noted.
Comparison to any index is for illustrative purposes only. The Fund does not include outperformance of any index or benchmark in its investment objectives.

This agreement may be terminated only by the Board of Trustees on 60 days' written notice to the Adviser.
As with any stock, the price of the Fund’s shares will fluctuate with market conditions and other factors. Shares of ETFs frequently trade at a price that is less than (a “discount”) or more than (a “premium”) their net asset value. If the Fund’s shares trade at a premium to net asset value, there is no assurance that any such premium will be sustained for any period of time and will not decrease, or that the shares will not trade at a discount to net asset value thereafter.

Important Risk Information
The Fund is new with limited operating history. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The Fund’s net asset value and investment return will fluctuate based upon changes in the value of its portfolio securities. There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective, and an investment in the Fund is not by itself a complete or balanced investment program. For a complete description of the Fund’s principal investment risks please refer to the prospectus.
Shares of the Fund are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Because ETFs trade like stocks, the Fund may trade at prices above or below the ETF's NAV. While the shares of ETFs are tradable on secondary markets, they may not readily trade in all market conditions and may trade at significant discounts in periods of market stress. Brokerage commissions and ETF expenses will reduce returns.
