1For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a funds’ monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each 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. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Equinox Chesapeake Strategy Fund was rated against 126 funds in the Managed Futures category (as of 9/30/2016) based on risk-adjusted three-year returns. With respect to the Managed Futures category, the Equinox Chesapeake Strategy Fund received a Morningstar Rating of five stars for the three-year period ending 9/30/2016. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. 

Morningstar Rating is for the I share class only; other classes may have different performance characteristics.
