WBI Investments, Inc. (WBI) was founded in 1984 to create innovative portfolio strategies. One of our objectives is to offer investors a sense of confidence even when economic and market environments seem uncertain. For over 25 years, our goal has been to help investors to achieve their financial goals.
While many investment managers attempt to perform well relative to a fluctuating market index or benchmark, WBI's risk-managed investment approach attempts to provide consistent, attractive returns with potentially less volatility and risk to capital than traditional approaches, whatever market conditions may be. We call this an absolute return approach to investment management. Since the introduction of WBI's first risk-managed absolute return portfolio in 1992, our focus on value, dividends, and risk management has become fundamental to our investment process.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. The Funds invest in emerging market and foreign securities which involve political, economic and currency risks, greater volatility and differences in accounting methods. These risks can be greater in emerging markets. The Funds invest in smaller and medium sized companies, which involve additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investment by the Fund in lower-rated and non-rated securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. Investments in mortgage-backed securities may involve additional risks, such as credit risk, prepayment risk, possible illiquidity and default, and susceptibility to adverse economic developments. Because the Funds invest in ETFs, they are subject to additional risks that do not apply to conventional mutual funds, including the risks that the market price of an ETF's shares may trade at a discount to its net asset value ("NAV"), an active secondary trading market may not develop or be maintained, or trading may be halted by the exchange in which they trade, which may impact a Fund's ability to sell its shares. The Funds may invest in ETN's which are subject to the credit risk of the issuer. Additional risks include volatility, lack of liquidity, and sensitivity to currencies, commodities markets, and interest rate changes. The funds may invest in MLP's which are subject certain risks inherent in the structure of MLPs, including complex tax structure risks, the limited ability for election or removal of management, limited voting rights, potential dependence on parent companies or sponsors for revenues to satisfy obligations, and potential conflicts of interest between partners, members and affiliates. The funds may also use options and future contracts, which have the risks of unlimited losses of the underlying holdings due to unanticipated market movements and failure to correctly predict the direction of securities prices, interest rates and currency exchange rates. The investment in options is not suitable for all investors. Investments in absolute return strategies are not intended to outperform stocks and bonds during strong market rallies.
