Performance quoted is past performance and is not a guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than performance data quoted. An investor’s investment return and principal value will fluctuate, so that your shares when redeemed may be worth more or less than your initial cost.

The VIX us a trademarked ticker symbol for the Chicago Board Options Exchange Market Volatility Index, a popular measure of the implied volatility of S&P 500 index options. It is often referred to as the fear index or fear gauge as it represents one measure of the market’s expectation of stock market volatility over the next 30-day period. The Dow Jones Utility Average (DJUA) is a price-weighted average of 15 utility stocks traded in the United States. The DJUA began in 1929.
The S&P 500 is a stock market index based on the market capitalizations of 500 large companies having common stock listed on the NYSE or NASDAQ. The S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index measures the performance of S&P 500 companies that have increased dividends every year for the last 25 consecutive years. The index treats each constituent as a distinct investment opportunity without regard to its size by equally weighting each company. The S&P High Yield Dividend Aristocrats Index is comprised of the 50 highest dividend yielding constituents of the stocks of the S&P Composite 1500 Index that have increased dividends every year for at least 25 consecutive years. These stocks have both capital growth and dividend income characteristics, as opposed to stocks that are pure yield, or pure capital oriented.
Index returns are for illustrative purposes only and do not represent actual fund performance. Index performance returns do not reflect any management fees, transaction costs or expenses. Indices are unmanaged and one cannot invest directly in an index. Past performance does not guarantee future results.
The price-earnings ratio (P/E Ratio) is the ratio for valuing a company that measures its current share price relative to its per-share earnings.
Community Capital Management is an investment adviser registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. The CRA Qualified Investment Fund and CCM Alternative Income Fund are distributed by SEI Investments Distribution Co. (SIDCo), 1 Freedom Valley Dr., Oaks, PA 19456. SIDCo is not affiliated with Community Capital Management. Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Bonds and bond funds are subject to interest rate risk and will decline in value as interest rates rise. High yield bonds involve greater risks of default or downgrade and are more volatile than investment grade securities, due to the speculative nature of their investments. The CCM Alternative Income Fund uses investment techniques that are different from the risks ordinarily associated with equity investments. Such techniques and strategies include hedging risks, merger arbitrage risks, derivative risks, short sale risks, leverage risks, commodities risk, and foreign investment risks, which may increase volatility and may increase costs and lower performance. Commodities can be highly volatile and the use of leverage may accelerate the velocity of potential losses.
Carefully consider the Funds’ investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. This and other information can be found in the Funds’ prospectuses which can be obtained by calling 866-202-3573. Please read them carefully before investing. The expense ratio of the CRA Fund Institutional Shares (CRANX) is 0.45% and the expense ratio of the CRA Fund Retail Shares (CRATX) is 0.80% as of 9/30/18. Expenses for other share classes will vary.
