The above chart shows the value of a hypothetical initial investment of $10,000 in Marathon and the S&P 500 Index on March 28, 2000 and held through March 31, 2016.

As of March 31, 2016:

Total Return Performance


S&P 500

Total Return
Since Inception March 28, 2000

10 Years
+6.42% +7.01%
Average Annual Return

+8.34% +11.58%
1 year

The Total Gross and Net Annual Expense Ratio for the Fund is 1.10%

The high total return of the fund since inception can be attributed to our fund’s outperformance in down markets.  Our conservative investment approach and ability to hold cash and fixed income helped weather these downturns.  These results are not typical and may not continue in the future.

The Fund's past performance does not guarantee future results.  The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.  Current performance of the Fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted.  Performance data current to the most recent month end may be obtained by calling 1-800-788-6086.  The S&P 500 index is unmanaged and returns for both the index and the Fund include reinvested dividends and capital gains.  It is not possible to invest directly in an index.

Mutual Funds involve risk including possible loss of principal.

Value investing involves buying stocks that are out of favor and/or undervalued in comparison to their peers or their prospects for growth. Typically, their valuation levels are lower than those of growth stocks. Growth-oriented securities purchased by the Fund may involve large price swings and potential for loss.

Investments in small and mid-capitalization companies may be more vulnerable than larger, more established organizations. Investments in foreign securities could subject the Fund to greater risks including, currency fluctuation, economic conditions, and different governmental and accounting standards. In general, the price of a fixed income security falls when interest rates rise. To the extent the Fund invests in high yield securities (junk bonds), it will be subject to greater levels of interest rate, liquidity and credit risks than funds that do not invest in such securities.

When the Fund invests in other investment companies, such as other mutual funds, ETFs or closed-end funds, it indirectly bears its proportionate share of any fees and expenses payable directly by the other investment company. Therefore, the Fund will incur higher expenses, many of which may be duplicative. In addition, the Fund may be affected by losses of the underlying funds and the level of risk arising from the investment practices of the underlying funds. There are risks associated with REITs including declines from deteriorating economic conditions, changes in the value of the underlying property, and defaults by borrowers.

The U.S. Government’s guarantee of ultimate payment of principal and timely payment of interest on certain U.S. Government securities owned by the Fund does not imply that the Fund’s shares are guaranteed or that the price of the Funds’ shares will not fluctuate. The net asset value and market price of leveraged or inverse ETFs is generally more volatile than the value of the tracked index, or of other ETFs that do not use leverage.
