Strategy And Objective

Guide Mark Emerging Markets Fund (the Fund ) seeks capital appreciation over the long term. Under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 80% of its assets in securities and other instruments that provide exposure to emerging market countries. For purposes of this policy, securities and other instruments that provide exposure to emerging market countries include: (I) securities issued by entities which are located, incorporated or have significant business activities in or are impacted by economic developments in developing or emerging market countries, (ii) securities denominated in, or linked to, currencies or interest rates of an emerging market country or countries, and (iii) derivatives or pooled structures (such as exchange-traded funds ( ETFs ) that are linked to emerging markets. The Fund considers emerging market countries to be those defined by the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. The Fund will, under normal circumstances, seek exposure to a minimum of three emerging market countries. The Fund mainly invests in equity securities of issuers in emerging market countries. The Funds investments in equity securities may include common stocks, unit stocks, stapled securities, ETFs and preferred stocks of companies of any size capitalization. The Fund also may invest in depositary receipts, including American Depositary Receipts ( ADRs ) of foreign companies and Global Depositary Receipts ( GDRs ). Depositary receipts are typically issued by a U.S. or foreign banker trust company and evidence ownership of underlying securities issued by a foreign corporation. The Fund also may invest in derivatives such as futures, forwards and other similar instruments in order to (I) equitize cash balances by gaining exposure to relevant equity markets; and (ii) hedge exposure to foreign currencies. The Fund may engage in currency futures and currency forwards for the purpose of hedging exposures within the Fund to non-dollar-denominated assets. In general, the use of currency derivatives for hedging may reduce the overall risk level of the Fund, albeit at a cost that may lower overall performance. The sub-advisor uses a rules-based methodology that emphasizes fundamentally-based stock selection, portfolio construction and efficient implementation. The Fund seeks to capture common sources of active equity returns, including the following factors: value (i.e., how attractively a stock is priced relative to its fundamentals, such as book value and free cash flow), momentum (i.e., whether a companys share price is trending up or down) and quality (i.e., profitability).The sub-advisor seeks to capitalize on the low correlations in returns across these factors by diversifying exposure to securities selected based on such factors. The sub-advisor may, in its discretion, make changes to its quantitative techniques, or use other quantitative techniques that are based on the sub-advisors proprietary research.
