Merk Absolute Return Currency Fund: Dividend Summary

The Fund declares distributions from net investment income quarterly. Any net capital gain realized by the Fund will be distributed at least annually.

Net investment income includes, amongst others, interest income net of Fund expenses. Foreign exchange gains and losses may influence net investment income. As a result, the net investment income paid and the Funds yield as published in databases may not be a reflection of the yields of securities invested in.

Separately, when there are foreign exchange losses, the net income distributed may be significantly reduced or eliminated. Also note that foreign exchange gains may be offset by foreign exchange losses later in the year; as a consequence, and influenced by IRS rules, the bulk of realized currency gains will factor into net income distributions in December (end of calendar year) and March (end of fiscal year).

Before investing you should carefully consider the Funds investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other information is in the prospectus, a copy of which may be obtained byclicking here. Please read the prospectus carefully.
