Mutual fund investing involves risk; loss of principal is possible. Investments in smaller and medium sized companies involve additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility than large cap companies. The Balanced Fund will invest in debt securities. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investments in lower rated and nonrated securities present a great risk of loss to principal and interest than higher rated securities. The Equity Fund may invest in foreign securities. Foreign investments involve additional risks, including currency fluctuation, political and economic instability, lack of liquidity and differing legal and accounting standards. These risks are magnified in emerging markets. The Equity Fund’s ability to invest in initial public offerings (IPOs) involves a higher degree of risk than more seasoned companies.
The Villere Funds are distributed by Quasar Distributors, LLC.
