Important note about risks:

The ASTON/Lake Partners LASSO Alternatives Fund also incurs the risks of the underlying funds it invests in. Potential risks include the use of aggressive investment techniques and instruments such as options and futures, derivatives, commodities, credit-risk, and short-sales that taken alone are generally considered riskier than conventional market strategies. Use of these aggressive investment techniques may expose an underlying fund to potentially dramatic changes (losses) in the value of its portfolio. Short sales may involve the risk that an underlying fund will incur a loss by subsequently buying a security at a higher price than the price at which the fund previously sold the security short.

The ASTON/River Road Long-Short Fund employs short sales which may involve the risk that the fund will incur a loss by subsequently buying a security at a higher price than the price at which the fund previously sold the security short. A loss incurred on a short sale results from increases in the value of the security, losses on a short sale are theoretically unlimited. Value investing often involves buying the stocks of companies that are currently out of favor that may decline further. Investing in exchange traded and closed end funds are subject to additional risk that shares of the underlying fund may trade at a premium or discount to their net asset value per share. Convertible preferred securities are subject to the risks of equity securities and fixed income securities. Derivatives can be highly volatile and involve risk in addition to the risk of the underlying reference security. Investing in the securities of foreign issuers involves special risks and considerations not typically associated with investing in U.S. companies.

For performance data current to the most recent quarter-end, please click on the Quarterly Performance link at the top of the page.

For periods less than one-year, total returns are reported; for periods more than one-year, average annual total returns are reported.

(1) Certain expenses were subsidized. If these subsidies were not in effect, the returns would have been lower. The adviser is contractually obligated to waive management fees and/or reimburse expenses through February 28, 2015.

(2) Net expense ratio excludes acquired fund fees. For the ASTON/Lake Partners LASSO Alternatives Fund, the net expense ratio excludes acquired fund fees and expenses of 1.77% for both the N and I class, respectively.

(3) Voluntary fee waivers are applied and can be terminated by the adviser at any time.

(4) There is a redemption fee of 2% (as a percentage of the amount redeemed) on shares that are sold or exchanged within 90 calendar days of purchase.

(5) The total operating expenses are 2.43% for Class-N and 2.18% for Class-I. Total operating expenses includes dividend and interest expense on short sales of 0.68% and acquired fund fees of 0.05%, which are not included in the net expense ratio.
