Tap into the value of Intellectual Property

The FinTrust Income and Opportunity Fund is designed to address three market challenges faced by investors: regular technology driven disruption of business models, blue-chip companies paying only modest dividends, and historically low interest rates. We understand income matters, and believe the fund is attractive for investors seeking income and capital appreciation from an equity portfolio.

Current performance may be higher or lower than that quoted. Performance data current to the most recent month-end can be obtained by calling (877) 244-6235 or by visiting Performance data shown represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that your shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Results are shown on a “total return” basis and include reinvestment of all dividends and capital gain distributions, if any. Performance shown reflects an expenses reimbursement that improved results. There initial offering of Class I and Class A shares was on 1/21/2016. FinTrust Capital Advisors took over as the investment manager of the fund on August 29, 2018. The performance shown for periods prior to 8/29/18 is the performance of a predecessor investment advisor to the funds. As of August 29, 2018 the Hedgerow Income and Opportunity Fund’s name was changed to the FinTrust Income and Opportunity Fund. Performance shown reflects an expense reimbursement that improved results. Class A shares have a maximum front-end sales load of 5.50%. Had this fee been included, the Fund returns reflected would have been lower. The performance of the Class A shares may vary.  As of the prospectus dated 4/30/2023, the Fund’s total expense ratio for the Class I shares is 2.13% and the Class A shares is 2.38%. Unmanaged index returns assume reinvestment of any and all distributions and, unlike fund returns, do not reflect fees, expenses, applicable loads, or sales charges. Investors cannot invest in an index or a category average.

Hypothetical Growth of $10,000 1,2

Class I: $15,739.99 — 03/31/2024


Includes changes in share price and reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. This chart illustrates the performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made in the FinTrust Income and Opportunity Fund I-Shares since inception on 1/21/16. It assumes reinvestment of capital gains and dividends. This chart is not intended to imply any future performance. Performance shown reflects an expenses reimbursement that improved results. 10k Performance is for the Fund’s Class I shares at net asset value. The Fund’s maximum front-end sales charge of 5.50% is not charged on the I shares. The sales charge is only applicable to the A shares. This chart depicts the performance of the I shares so the sales charge is not applicable here—had it been included, the Fund’s return would have been lower.

FinTrust simplifies the complex

FinTrust’s uniquely designed portfolio invests in companies with superior intellectual property portfolios and strong cash flow growth characteristics while generating revenue from option premiums, dividends, and interest.


1The S&P 500 Index consists of 500 stocks chosen for market size, liquidity and industry group representation.  It is a market value-weighted index (stock price times number of shares outstanding), with each stock’s weight in the index proportionate to its market value.  The S&P 500 is one of the most widely used benchmarks of U.S. equity performance.

2 The Morningstar Category Average is the average return for the peer group based on the returns of each individual fund within the group, for the period shown. This average assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. The Morningstar Long-Short Category represent funds that hold sizeable stakes in both long and short positions in equities and related derivatives. Some funds that fall into this category will shift their exposure to long and short positions depending on their macro outlook or the opportunities they uncover through bottom-up research. Some funds may simply hedge long stock positions through exchange traded funds or derivatives. At least 75% of the assets are in equity securities or derivatives.  The information contained herein is proprietary to Morningstar and/or its content providers; may not be copied or distributed; and is not warranted to be accurate, complete or timely.  Neither Morningstar not its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information.
