Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. The Scharf Global Opportunity Fund is non-diversified, meaning the Fund may concentrate its assets in fewer individual holdings than a diversified fund. Therefore, the Fund is more exposed to volatility than a diversified fund. Diversification does not assure a profit, nor does it protect against a loss in a declining market. The Fund may invest in securities representing equity or debt. These securities may be issued by small- and medium-sized companies, which involve additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility. The Fund may invest in foreign securities which involve greater volatility, political, economic and currency risks, and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater for emerging markets. The Fund may invest in exchange-traded fund (“ETFs”) or mutual funds, the risks of owning either generally reflecting the risks of owning the underlying securities held by the ETF or mutual fund. The Fund follows an investment style that favors relatively low valuations. Investment in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investment in lower-rated, non-rated and distressed securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities.
