The Funds’ investment adviser, RMB Capital Management, LLC, has adopted a contractual expense limitation agreement for each fund through May 1, 2018, reducing the applicable fund’s operating expenses so that the fund’s total return and yield is increased. This may be continued from year to year thereafter if agreed upon by all parties. In the absence of such waivers and/or reimbursements, the applicable Fund’s total return and yield would be lower.
All investing involves risk including the possible loss of principal. The RMB Mendon Financial Long/Short Fund is a sector fund. These types of funds may be susceptible to factors affecting their industries, and the fund’s net asset values may fluctuate more than a fund that invests in a wider range of industries. Because this fund concentrates its investments in one sector of the economy (financial services) and it invests in derivative securities (currently RMB Mendon Financial Long/Short Fund engages in short sales of equities), investors should consider the risk that the fund may experience greater volatility than funds that invest across several sectors.
Different classes of shares carry different fees and expenses. The RMB Mendon Financial Long/Short Fund currently offers three classes (A, C and I shares). Class A has a maximum front-end sales charge of 5.0%, Class C has a maximum contingent deferred sales charge of 1.0%, and Class I has waived load with $100,000 minimum investment. Class A sales charges are waived for clients of investment intermediaries, or for those who purchase shares via no-transaction fee platforms. Each share class charges a 2.00% short-term redemption fee on proceeds from shares redeemed (either by selling or exchanging into another fund) within 30 days after purchase.
