Securities must have a maturity from 1 up to (but not including) 10 years for all sectors except for Securitized (MBS, ABS, CMBS), which does not have a maximum weighted average maturity (MBS) or remaining average life (ABS, CMBS) constraint.

The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The Morningstar Rating does not include any adjustment for sales loads. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three- year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. As of 10/31/2021, the CCM Community Impact Bond was rated against the following number of U.S.-domiciled Intermediate Government funds over the following time periods: 229 funds in the last three years, 209 funds in the last five years, and 179 funds in the last ten years. With respect to these Intermediate Government funds, the CCM Community Impact Bond Fund CRA Share Class received a Morningstar Rating of two stars, two stars, and two stars for the three-, five-, and ten-year periods, respectively.
