Large Cap Value Fund (SOAVX)
Seeks to provide capital appreciation with a secondary objective of current income.
The Value Fund focuses on the large cap value segment of the U.S. equity market.
The Value Fund invests at least 80% of its total assets in large cap equity securities of companies in the value segment of the market. Using the “value” approach, the Adviser buys for the Value Fund those securities considered to be conservatively valued relative to the securities of comparable companies.

This fund may be suitable for long-term investors who seek appreciation of capital. Investors should be willing to accept the potential volatility of such investments.

Principal Risks of Investing in the Value Fund: Any investment involves risk. The risks associated with an investment in the Value Fund include:
Market Risk—The market value of the Value Fund’s investments fluctuates as the equity market fluctuates. Market risk may affect a single issuer, industry or sector of the economy or it may affect the market as a whole.
Large Capitlalization Company Risk—The Value Fund invests primarily in large cap companies. Larger, more established companies may be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges like changes in consumer tastes or innovative smaller competitors. Large cap companies are also sometimes unable to attain the high growth rates of successful, smaller companies, especially during extended periods of economic expansion.
Volatility—The performance of the Value Fund can be affected by unexpected events (e.g., significant earnings shortfalls or gains, war, or political events) that cause major price changes in individual securities or market sectors.
Investing in MLPs involves risks related to limited control and limited rights to vote on matters affecting the MLP, risks related to potential conflicts of interest between the MLP and the MLP’s general partner, cash flow risks, dilution risks and risks related to the general partner’s limited call right, as described in more detail in the prospectus. Energy infrastructure companies are subject to risks specific to the industry they serve, including fluctuations in commodity prices, reduced volumes of oil or natural gas, reduced demand for the product, depletion of natural gas or oil reserves, changes in regulations, extreme weather and changes in interest rates. Potential investors should consult the prospectus for further information.

The potential loss of your investment in the Value Fund if the Value Fund depreciates in value.
