Ratings and rankings are only one form of performance measurement. For current performance information, please call toll free 855-LELAND1 or visit www.lelandfunds.com. Rank within Morningstar category does not account for sales charges. The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The Morningstar Rating does not include any adjustment for sales loads. The top 10% of products in each product 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. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The Leland Thomson Reuters Venture Capital Index Fund was rated against 1,213 Large Growth category funds based on risk-adjusted returns as of 3/31/2018.

Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Leland Funds prior to investing. This and other important information about the Funds is contained in the prospectus, which can be obtained by calling 855-535-2631 (855-LELAND1). The prospectus should be read carefully before investing. The Leland Funds are distributed by Northern Lights Distributors, LLC, member FINRA/SIPC.

Mutual Funds involve risks including the possible loss of principal. The Fund may invest in ETFs, ETNs and mutual funds, which are subject to investment advisory and other expenses, which will be indirectly paid by the Fund. ETFs, ETNs and mutual funds are subject to issuer, fixed income and risks specific to the fund.
Venture capital investments involve a greater degree of risk; as a result, the Fund’s returns may experience greater volatility than the overall market. The Fund does not invest in venture capital funds nor does it invest directly in the companies funded by venture capital funds.
The Fund seeks to generate returns that mimic the aggregate returns of U.S. venture capital-backed companies as measured by the Thomson Reuters Venture Capital Index (“TR VC Index”). There is a risk that the Fund’s return may not match or achieve a high degree of correlation with the return of the TR VC Index. Additionally, the TR VC Index’s return may not match or achieve a high degree of correlation with the return of U.S. venture capital-backed companies.
The Fund relies on licenses that permit the Fund to use the applicable Index and certain related intellectual property in connection with the name and investment strategies of the Fund. In the event that such licenses are terminated, the Fund may lose its ability to use the intellectual property which may have a significant impact on the operation of the Fund and could potentially result in a change in investment policy or closure of the Fund.
Investments in equity securities are subject to overall market risks. To the extent that the Fund’s investments are concentrated in or significantly exposed to a particular sector, the Fund will be susceptible to loss due to adverse occurrences affecting that sector.
Loss may result from the Fund’s investments in derivatives. These instruments may be illiquid, difficult to value and leveraged so that small changes may produce disproportionate losses to the Fund. Over the counter derivatives, such as swaps, are also subject to counterparty risk, which is the risk that the other party in the transaction will not fulfill its contractual obligation. In certain circumstances, it may be difficult for the Fund to purchase and sell particular derivative investments within a reasonable time at a fair price.
Investors cannot invest directly in an index. Unmanaged index returns do not reflect any fees, expenses or sales charges.
Thomson Reuters Venture Capital Index – the Thomson Reuters Venture Capital Index (“TR VC Index”) seeks to replicate the performance of the Thomson Reuters Venture Capital Research Index (“TR VC Research Index”) using liquid public securities across the sectors in which U.S. venture capital invests.
