Short Duration Fund
SEMIX | SEMRX
The primary objective of the Semper Short Duration Fund (the “Fund”) is to provide a high level of current income that is consistent with preservation of capital.
The Fund invests primarily in investment-grade, U.S. dollar-denominated debt instruments of domestic entities. This includes U.S. Treasuries, Agencies, Mortgage-Backed, Asset-Backed, and other short duration securities that Semper deems as high quality. Semper has managed separate accounts for institutional investors with a substantially similar investment strategy since 1993.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible.
Investment performance reflects fee waivers in effect. In the absence of such waivers, total return would be reduced.
The Semper MBS Total Return Fund and the Semper Short Duration Fund invest in debt securities: As interest rates rise, the value of debt securities decrease; whereas prepayment risk tends to occur during periods of declining interest rates. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Recent turbulence in the financial markets and reduced liquidity in credit and fixed-income market may have an adverse effect on the Fund. Investments in Mortgage-Backed and Asset Backed Securities include additional risks that investors should be aware of such as credit risk, interest rate risk, prepayment risk, real estate market risk, possible illiquidity and default, as well as increased susceptibility to adverse economic developments. Many of the risks of investing in commercial mortgage-backed securities reflect the risks of investing in the real estate securing the underlying mortgage loans. Accordingly, the Funds may not be suitable for all investors
In addition, the MBS Total Return Fund invests in lower-rated and non-rated securities that present a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. The Fund regularly makes short sales of securities, which involves the risk that losses to those securities may exceed the original amount invested by the Fund. The Fund may invest in securities that are less liquid which can be difficult to sell. The Fund may use certain types of investment derivatives such as futures, forwards, and swaps. Derivatives involve risks different from, and in certain cases, greater than the risks presented by more traditional investments. The Fund may use leverage which may exaggerate the effect of any increase or decrease in the value of portfolio securities. The Fund may invest in TBA securities which involve interest rate and investment exposure risks. The Fund may invest in When-Issued securities which may involve less favorable prices for securities, when delivered, and failure to deliver securities could cause a loss to the Fund.
