The Altegris/AACA Opportunistic Real Estate Fund is a newly registered mutual fund. It is important to note that the Fund inherited the track record of its predecessor, the American Assets Real Estate Securities, L.P. ("Predecessor Fund"), which was managed by AACA, the Fund's sub-adviser. The Predecessor Fund was not registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940. The Predecessor Fund, since its inception on February 1, 2011, was managed by AACA in the same style, and pursuant to substantially identical real estate long short strategies, investment goals and guidelines, as are presently being pursued on behalf of the Fund by AACA as its sub-adviser.
The performance returns quoted for periods prior to 1/9/2014 is that of the Predecessor Fund (while it was a limited partnership), and is net of applicable management fees, performance fees and other actual expenses of the Predecessor Fund. From its inception on February 1, 2011, the Predecessor Fund was not subject to the same investment restrictions, diversification requirements, limitations on leverage and other regulatory or Internal Revenue Code restrictions of the Fund, which might have adversely affected its performance. In addition, the Predecessor Fund was not subject to sales loads which are applicable to certain classes of Fund shares, which would have reduced returns.
The performance data quoted here represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted above. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original costs. The Fund’s adviser has contractually agreed to reduce its fees and to reimburse expenses, at least until December 31, 2017, to ensure that total annual Fund operating expenses after fee waiver and/or reimbursement will not exceed 1.80%, 1.55%, and 1.80% of average daily net assets attributable to Class A, Class I, and Class N shares, respectively, subject to possible recoupment in future years. Fund results shown reflect the waiver, without which the results would have been lower. A Fund’s performance, especially for very short periods of time, should not be the sole factor in making your investment decisions.
