The AlphaOne NextGen Technology Fund (Tickers: AONTX, AONAX) was launched on December 29th, 2017. The goal of the Fund is to outperform the S&P Global 1200 Information Technology index over a five-year time horizon. The Fund will invest in companies that represent both Tech Titans and Emerging Tech Disruptors. Global in scope, the fund will focus (owning typically 25 to 40 stocks) on the portfolio manager’s best ideas based on his 20 plus years perspectives gained from analyzing technology mega-trends and firms that have prospered and changed the way we live and conduct business. The Fund will overweight stocks based on Dan’s conviction that a company has distinct competitive advantages and can fundamentally support long term growth. For investment policy purposes, the fund defines a technology company as one that produces, designs, or markets technology products or services; uses technology extensively in its product development or operations; or is expected to benefit significantly from technological advances or improvements. Their aims are to improve a broad range of industrial and consumer experiences. Companies likely to be represented in the Fund’s portfolio include, but are not limited to those specializing in computer hardware/ software, communications (voice, data and wireless), electronics, e-commerce, semiconductor, media, alternative energy, biotech and health care delivery.

Contractual fee waivers are in effect until April 1, 2018, resulting in the net expense. Any additional waivers are voluntary and can be discontinued at any time. The expense ratio does not reflect the ability of the Adviser to recover all or a portion of prior waivers, which would result in higher expenses for the investor. This option is available contractually to the Adviser until April 1, 2018.
