General information: This document contains general information about the Phaeacian Partners Accent International Value Fund. The information contained in this document does not constitute an offer or solicitation of an offer to make an investment into any fund managed by Phaeacian Partners LLC. Market commentary, product information and performance data available in this document is for informational purposes only and is not designed to contain information material to an investor’s decision to invest in Phaeacian Partners Accent International Value Fund.The Phaeacian Accent International Value Fund and the Phaeacian Global Value Fund (the “Phaeacian Funds”) were formerly known as the FPA International Value Fund and the FPA Paramount Fund, Inc. (the “Former Funds”), respectively, until their reorganization on 19th October 2020. The performance data shown before this date is from when the portfolio managers of the Phaeacian Funds were the portfolio managers of the Former Funds and employees of the Former Funds’ investment adviser. The Former Funds are no longer available for sale and this data is provided for informational purposes only. The provision of this data does not constitute or imply an endorsement of the Phaeacian Funds by the Former Funds’ investment adviser, and the views expressed in this document do not state or reflect those of the Former Funds’ investment adviser.

Please read the prospectus or summary prospectus carefully before investing. The Phaeacian Funds are advised by Phaeacian Partners LLC and distributed through Foreside Financial Services LLC.

Risk considerations: The performance data shown represents past performance, which is not a guarantee or indicative of future results. Click here to access the fund's performance page, which contains complete performance information and risk disclosures. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate, so investor’s shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data cited. For performance data current to the most recent month-end, please visit www.phaeacianpartners.comor call (800) 258-9668 (toll-free). Figures for periods of less than one year are cumulative returns. All other figures represent average annual returns. Performance figures include the reinvestment of all dividends and any capital gains distributions. All returns are net of expenses. The Fund may purchase foreign securities, including American Depository Receipts (ADRs) and other depository receipts, which are subject to interest rate, currency exchange rate, economic and political risks. Foreign investments, especially those of companies in emerging markets, can be riskier, less liquid, harder to value, and more volatile than investments in the United States. Adverse political and economic developments or changes in the value of foreign currency can make it more difficult for the Fund to value the securities. Differences in tax and accounting standards, difficulties in obtaining information about foreign companies, restrictions on receiving investment proceeds from a foreign country, confiscatory foreign tax laws, and potential difficulties in enforcing contractual obligations, can all add to the risk and volatility of foreign investments. Small and mid-cap stocks involve greater risks and they can fluctuate in price more than larger company stocks. Groups of stocks, such as value and growth, go in and out of favor, which may cause certain funds to underperform other equity funds. The Fund may invest a greater percentage of its assets in a smaller number of securities. Holding fewer securities increases the risk that the value of the Fund could go down because of the poor performance of a single investment. Value style investing presents the risk that the holdings or securities may never reach their full market value because the market fails to recognize what the portfolio management team considers the true business value or because the portfolio management team has misjudged those values. In addition, value style investing may fall out of favor and underperform growth or other styles of investing during given periods. Please refer to the Fund’s Prospectus for a complete overview of the primary risks associated with the Fund. Portfolio composition will change due to ongoing management of the Fund. References to individual securities are for informational purposes only and should not be construed as recommendations by the Fund, the portfolio manager, the Adviser, or the distributor. It should not be assumed that future investments will be profitable or will equal the performance of the security examples discussed.

Benchmark: The MSCI All Country World ex-USA (Net) Index is a float-adjusted market capitalization index that is designed to measure the combined equity market performance of developed and emerging market countries excluding the United States. An investor cannot invest directly in an index. Comparison to the MSCI ACWI ex-US Index is for illustrative purposes only. The Fund does not include outperformance of any index or benchmark in its investment objectives. Index returns do not reflect transactions costs, investment management fees or other commissions, fees and expenses that would reduce performance for an investor.
