*The Gotham Index Plus Fund seeks to outperform the S&P 500 Index over most annual periods. The fund will invest a portion of the assets in securities intended to track the performance of the S&P 500 Index and additional exposure to a long/short portfolio consisting of long and short positions, generally selected from the largest 500 to 700 U.S. companies by market capitalization. The fund is not a passive index fund.

The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares upon redemption may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance quoted. Returns would have been lower if certain expenses had not been reduced or reimbursed.
