Model Selection Process Details

The Donoghue Forlines Risk Managed Income tracks a proprietary model identified in the Fund’s prospectus. It is a rules-based strategy that employs tactical overlays driven by multiple technical signals to determine whether the Fund will be in a bullish or defensive posture.

The Fund uses a short-term and an intermediate-term tactical overlay to determine whether to be in a bullish or defensive posture. Each tactical overlay will trigger 50% of the Fund into a defensive position, should market conditions warrant. When in a defensive position, the Fund will be invested in short-term U.S. Treasury ETFs.

When bullish, the Fund will direct investments into a selection of Floating Rate and High Yield mutual funds and ETFs. Additionally, when in a bullish posture, the Fund will rebalance holdings and reconstitute annually.

Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The Morningstar Rating does not include any adjustment for sales loads. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Morningstar Rating is for the I share class only; other classes may have different performance characteristics.
