iM DOLAN MCENIRY CORPORATE BOND FUND IDMIX, IDMAX

Dolan McEniry follows its strategy and process with great patience and deliberation.

Overview

Investment Objective

The fund seeks to provide investors with total return, with a secondary investment objective of preserving capital. The fund will invest in a diversified portfolio of U.S. corporate investment grade* bonds, high yield bonds, and U.S. Government and Treasury securities.

Value starts with free cash flow

They do all their own homework in the hunt for undervalued corporate bonds—those with low credit risk and wide spreads. Key to their credit analysis is an evaluation of free cash flow because companies who generate it well and allocate it wisely make the strongest case for enduring value.

Research supports decisive investing

At Dolan McEniry, they do their own research—no relying on Wall Street reports or ratings agencies. Their discovery and analysis process is clear, focused and efficient, carried out day after day in pursuit of exceptional returns year after year.

Contrarian mindset provides clarity

Their strategy keeps a clear eye on conservative investment fundamentals rather than following a herd mentality or chasing trends. They love a beaten down and out of favor company, as long as there is safety in its cash flows. They believe that over time, long-term lending is better than short-term trading.

Long-term focus wins client trust

Their singular focus has led a range of clients to trust them in managing their assets, from foundations and endowments to pension funds and wealthy families. Some of these relationships have lasted for years, even decades. Their clients have confidence that their strategic approach will balance risk and reward by focusing on value and investing intelligently.

The Fund’s investment objectives, risks charges and expenses must be considered carefully before investing. The statutory and summary prospectuses contains this and other important information about the investment company, and it may be obtained by calling 800-960-0188. Read it carefully before investing.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investments by the Fund in lower-rated securities presents a greater risk of loss of principal and interest than higher-rated securities. Foreign securities are subject to risks relating to political, social, economic developments abroad and differences between U.S. and foreign regulatory requirements and market practices, including fluctuations in foreign currencies.

Credit Ratings are grades given to bonds that indicate their credit quality as determined by a Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization (“NRSRO”) such as Standard and Poor’s, Moody’s, and Fitch. The firm evaluates a bond issuer’s financial strength, or its ability to pay a bond’s principal and interest in a timely fashion. Ratings are expressed as letters ranging from ‘AAA’, which is the highest grade, to ‘D’, which is the lowest grade. If NRSRO ratings differ, the security will be considered to have received the highest of those ratings. For securities rated by an NRSRO other than S&P, the Adviser converts that rating to the equivalent S&P rating. Securities not rated by an NRSRO appear in the “Not Rated/Unavailable” category. Ratings are subject to change.”

Diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect from loss in a declining market.
