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 877-272-1977. Please read them carefully before investing.
Community Capital Management, LLC (CCM) is an investment adviser registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. Registration as an investment adviser does not imply a certain level of skill or training. The verbal and written communications of an investment adviser provide you with information you need to determine whether to hire or retain the adviser. Past performance is not indicative of future results. CCM has distinct investment processes and procedures relating to the management of investment portfolios. Most of the firm’s strategies are customized, rather than model-based, and utilize an innovative approach to fixed income and equity investing by combining the positive outcomes of impact and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing with rigorous financial analysis, an inherent focus on risk management, and transparent research. Bonds are subject to interest rate risk and will decline in value as interest rates rise. Stocks will fluctuate in response to factors that may affect a single company, industry, sector, or the market as a whole and may perform worse than the market. A sustainable investment strategy which incorporates impact investing and/or ESG criteria may take into consideration factors beyond traditional financial information to select securities, which could result in relative investment performance deviating from other strategies or broad market benchmarks, depending on whether such sectors or investments are in or out of favor in the market. Further, ESG strategies may rely on certain values-based criteria to eliminate exposures found in similar strategies or broad market benchmarks, which could also result in relative investment performance deviating.

CCM manages fixed income impact investing portfolios for which CCM incorporates a thematic and geographic approach. CCM invests in securities that we consider to be fossil fuel free. We may invest in a bond whose use of proceeds will be used to finance activities or projects in clean and renewable energy or other activities that may contribute to the transition to a more sustainable economy, even if the issuer’s revenue or profits are partially derived from the fossil fuel sector. CCM evaluates common stock and preferred equity securities from an impact, ESG, and financial perspective. The following types of securities are utilized mainly for hedging purposes and, as such, are not subject to impact or ESG review: options, futures, short positions, closed-end funds, and exchange-traded funds (ETF). Our fossil fuel free criteria for common stock and preferred equity securities is as follows:
- We do not invest in companies in the business of owning, extracting, producing, processing, or refining the fossil fuels of oil, gas, and coal (S&P Global definition: “Companies that hold fossil fuel reserves, which are defined as economically and technically recoverable sources of crude oil, natural gas, and thermal coal.”)
- We do not invest in companies that are in the business of storage, transportation, exploration, or production of carbon-related fuels or energy sources.
- We do not invest in the common stock of companies that are in the oil or gas equipment and services businesses.
- Investments may be made in utilities that have current fossil fuel power sources above 15% but are actively transitioning to renewable sources.
- Investments may be made in companies that are pursuing alternative energy technologies or are in alternative energy sectors.
- Investment may be made in companies that are working to transition away from fossil fuels.
