Morningstar Highlights Flexible ASTON/River Road Fund

Disclosure

Performance as of September 30, 2013 for the ASTON/River Road Select Value Fund N-Class was 26.31% for the  1-year, 16.65% for the 3-year, 9.77% for the 5-year and 5.22% since inception (3/29/07).  The gross expense ratio for the N-Class is 1.44%, and the I-Class is 1.19%.   

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. Some of the returns quoted reflect fee waivers or expense reimbursements that are no longer in effect. Returns for certain periods would have been lower without the waivers/reimbursements. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. For performance data current to the most recent month-end, please visit our website at www.astonfunds.com.

Note: Small- and mid-cap stocks are considered riskier than large-cap stocks due to greater potential volatility and less liquidity. Value investing often involves buying the stocks of companies that are currently out of favor

Parameters set by the Subadviser are not a fundamental policy of the Fund and are subject to change at any time.

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 lower or higher than the performance data quoted. 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.
