Current Yield is computed as the annualized current dividend over NAV per share and reflects dividends and interest earned, including Return of Capital in the calculation. 2Income determined to be from Return of Capital is not included in the 30 day SEC yield calculation and thus causes the reported yield to be zero. 3The advisor has agreed to limit fees and/or reimburse expenses until at least March 31, 2013, however, the Trust's Board of Trustees may be terminate or amend prior to this date. The Advisor can be reimbursed by the Fund within three years after the date the fee limitation and/or expense reimbursement has been made by the Advisor, provided that such repayment does not cause the expenses of any class of the Fund to exceed the foregoing limits. See the most recent prospectus for details. 4Expenses include deferred income tax which represents an estimate of the Fund's potential tax liability. This expense may vary greatly from year to year depending on the performance of the Fund's investment. A change in the estimate of deferred tax liability could result in a loss to net asset value.

MLPs at a Glance

SteelPath specializes in energy infrastructure investments primarily through the MLP asset class. Energy infrastructure MLPs generally operate toll-road business models that transport, store and process hydrocarbons such as oil, natural gas, natural gas liquids and refined products. Over the past decade, the MLP asset class has been emerging as the accepted home of energy infrastructure and has benefited from the migration of legacy infrastructure assets into the sector through both acquisitions and new offerings. Though the continued migration of legacy assets is expected, the sector should also benefit from the development of new energy infrastructure assets to meet the logistical needs of growing U.S. oil and gas production stemming from the use of new drilling technologies and techniques. We expect energy infrastructure MLPs to continue to benefit from their low-risk business model and the robust opportunities to further grow their businesses. Investors may benefit from attractive levels of tax-deferred income and low correlations with the broader market. Inflation protection has historically come from both the inherent value of long-life physical assets (i.e. pipelines) and from the application of federally regulated pricing models to crude oil and refined products pipelines.

Please read the prospectus, or summary prospectus, carefully before investing. Risks of Investing Investing in MLPs involves additional risks as compared to the risks of investing in common stock, including risks related to cash flow, dilution and voting rights. Each Fund's investments are concentrated in the energy infrastructure industry with an emphasis on securities issued by MLPs, which may increase price fluctuation. Energy infrastructure companies are subject to risks specific to the industry such as fluctuations in commodity prices, reduced volumes of natural gas or other energy commodities, environmental hazards, changes in the macroeconomic or the regulatory environment or extreme weather. MLPs may trade less frequently than larger companies due to their smaller capitalizations which may result in erratic price movement or difficulty in buying or selling. MLPs are subject to significant regulation and may be adversely affected by changes in the regulatory environment including the risk that an MLP could lose its tax status as a partnership. Additional management fees and other expenses are associated with investing in MLP funds. Some SteelPath Funds will be subject to certain MLP tax risks and risks associated with accounting for its deferred tax liability which could materially reduce the net asset value. To the extent that a Fund obtains leverage through borrowings, there will be the potential for greater gains and the risk of magnified losses. Investing in debt securities involves additional risks including interest rate risk, credit risk, duration risk, and duplication of advisory fees and other expenses. High yield securities involve more risks than investment grade securities and tend to be more sensitive to economic conditions. Private equity investments may be subject to greater risks than investments in publicly traded companies due to limited public information and lack of regulatory oversight. SteelPath Funds are distributed by UMB Distribution Services, LLC.
