Main Risks

All investments involve risks including the risk of possible loss of principal. The market value of a fund’s portfolio may decline as a result of a number of factors, including interest rate risk, credit risk, inflation/deflation risk, mortgage and asset-backed securities risk, US Government securities risk, foreign investment risk, currency risk, derivatives risk, leverage risk and liquidity risk. Frequent trading of the Fund’s portfolio may result in relatively high transaction costs and may result in taxable capital gains.

Morningstar

The Investor Shares of Schroder Broad Tax-Aware Value Bond Fund were rated 5 stars for the 3 year period (out of 306 funds); The Advisor Shares of Schroder Broad Tax-Aware Value Bond Fund were rated 5 stars for the 3 year period‡ (out of 306 funds) within the Muni National Intermediate category as of June 30, 2016. For each fund with at least a 3-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted return measure that accounts for variation in a fund’s monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive five stars, the next 22.5% receive four stars, the next 35% receive three stars, the next 22.5% receive two stars and the bottom 10% receive one star. Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages. Morningstar Rating™ is for individual share classes only. Other classes may have different performance characteristics. ‡ denotes Morningstar Extended Performance Ratings: Morningstar provides adjusted historical returns and an Extended Performance Rating for some mutual funds in its universe. This means that any share class that doesn’t have a 1, 3-, 5-, or 10-year performance history may receive a hypothetical Morningstar Rating based on the oldest surviving share class of the fund. First, Morningstar computes the funds’ new return stream by appending an adjusted return history of the oldest share class. Next, the Extended Performance Rating is determined by comparing the adjusted-historical returns to the current open-end mutual fund universe to identify placement in the bell curve used to assign the Morningstar Rating. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. ©2015 Morningstar, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
