INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE AND WHY INVEST
The CCM Small/Mid-Cap Impact Value Fund* (the Fund), previously the Quaker Small/Mid-Cap Impact Value Fund, seeks to provide long-term growth of capital. The Fund seeks to provide long-term growth of capital by investing in a concentrated, benchmark-agnostic portfolio of well-researched equities that are trading at valuations that do not reflect their full potential. The determination of value goes beyond just price—it is also a function of a company’s fundamentals, which are analyzed along multiple dimensions, including an assessment of its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) opportunities and risks.

The Adviser has contractually agreed to waive all or a portion of its investment advisory fees and/or pay/reimburse expenses (excluding any Rule 12b-1 fees, taxes, interest, acquired fund fees and expenses, short sale dividend and interest expenses, brokerage fees, certain insurance costs, and nonroutine expenses or costs, including, but not limited to, those relating to reorganizations, litigation, conducting shareholder meetings, liquidations and other extraordinary expenses) in order to prevent total annual fund operating expenses from exceeding 1.30% of the Fund’s average daily, net assets through October 30, 2020. Pursuant to its expense limitation agreement with the Fund, the Adviser is entitled to recoup any fees that it waived and/or Fund expenses that it paid for a period of three years following such fee waivers and expense payments, to the extent that such recoupment by the Adviser will not cause the Fund to exceed any applicable expense limitation that was in place for the Fund when the fees were waived or expenses were paid. These waivers and reimbursements may be terminated at any time with respect to the Fund by its Board of Trustees upon sixty (60) days’ written notice to the Adviser without payment of any penalty and shall automatically terminate upon the termination of the Fund’s advisory contract with the Adviser.

There’s no guarantee that a strategy will be successful. Mutual fund investing involves risk including the possible loss of principal. The Fund invests in smaller companies (generally less than $1.5 billion market capitalization). Smaller companies can be riskier investments than larger companies. The Fund invests in companies that appear to be “undervalued” in the marketplace (i.e. trading at prices below the company’s true worth). If the Fund’s perceptions of value are wrong, the securities purchased may not perform as expected, reducing the Fund’s return.
Fund holdings, sector allocations, and asset allocations are subject to change and are not recommendations to buy or sell any security. Consider a fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses carefully before investing. The Statutory, and where available, the Summary Prospectuses contain this and other important information and are available for download at www.ccminvests.com or by calling 866.202.3573. Read carefully before investing.
