For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Total Return measure that accounts for variation 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 funds in each category 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 percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The RMB Fund Class A was rated as of 12/31/2016 against the following number of U.S. domiciled large growth funds over the following time periods: 1,315 funds in the last three years, 1,154 funds in the last 5 years, and 809 funds in the last 10 years. With respect to these large growth funds, the RMB Fund Class A received a Morningstar rating of 2, 1, and 3 stars for the 3, 5, and 10 year periods, respectively. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
