Why Dividends?   Investing in dividend-paying stocks is an excellent way to pursue your investment objectives. Individual investors value the ability of dividends to provide income. Dividends also have the potential to help provide downside protection in difficult market environments. Crawford Investment Counsel, The Advisor for the Crawford Mutual Funds, employs dividends in each of its equity investment strategies. A company’s dividend history plays a vital role in identifying companies with the characteristics the Advisor seeks – quality, consistency, and stability. Through the Crawford Mutual Funds, investors can access the same dividend-oriented investment philosophy and strategies offered to The Advisor’s institutional and private clients through separate accounts.

 

Given the significant differences between separately managed accounts and mutual funds, investors should consider the differences in expenses, tax implications, and the overall objectives between separately managed accounts and mutual funds before investing. Past performance of the strategy/separately managed account is not indicative of future performance of the fund.

You should carefully consider the investment objectives, potential risks, management fees, and charges and expenses of the Fund before investing. The Fund’s prospectus and summary prospectus contains this and other information about the Fund, and should be read carefully before investing. You may obtain a current copy of the Fund’s prospectus or summary prospectus by calling 1-800-431-1716. Past performance is no guarantee of 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.
