Strategy And Objective

The Fund seeks to provide investment results that match, before fees and expenses, the performance of a specific benchmark on a daily basis. The Funds current benchmark is the inverse (opposite) of the performance of the Russell 2000 Index (the underlying index). The Fund does not seek to achieve its investment objective over a period of time greater than one day. Unlike a traditional index fund, the Funds investment objective is to perform opposite the underlying index, and the Fund generally will not own the securities included in the underlying index. Instead, the Fund employs as its investment strategy a program of engaging in short sales of securities included in the underlying index and investing to a significant extent in derivative instruments, which primarily consist of equity index swaps and swaps on exchange-traded funds ("ETFs"), futures contracts, and options on securities, futures contracts, and stock indices. The Advisor expects tore balance the Fund's positions daily to maintain exposure that is opposite to that of the underlying index. While the Fund may write (sell) and purchase swaps, it expects primarily to write swaps. The Funds investment in derivatives serves as a substitute for directly selling short each of the securities included in the underlying index and produces inverse exposure to the underlying index. Certain of the Funds derivatives investments may be traded in the over-the-counter (OTC) market. Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in financial instruments with economic characteristics that should perform opposite to the securities of companies included in the underlying index.
