Fund Description

The Fund seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in a broadly diversified portfolio of equity securities of well-established companies based in those countries included in the MSCI All Country World Ex-USA Index (the “Index”) that are believed to have above-average market appreciation potential.

Under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 80% of the value of its net assets plus borrowings for investment purposes in equity securities of well-established companies that are located in countries throughout the world. For purposes of the Fund’s 80% investment policy, equity securities include international equities traded on recognized global exchanges, private placements of equity securities, rights offerings, warrants, ADRs, new issues

of equity securities, ETFs that primarily invest in equity securities, and derivatives, primarily index futures, with economic characteristics similar to equity securities. The Fund may at times purchase or sell futures contracts on the Index, or options on those futures, in lieu of investing directly in the stocks making up the Index. The Fund might do so, for example, in order to increase its investment exposure pending investment of cash in the stocks comprising the Index. Alternatively, the Fund might use futures or options on futures to reduce its investment exposure in situations where it intends to sell a portion of the stocks in its portfolio but the sale has not yet been completed. Some of these investments will cause the Fund to be, in part, indirectly exposed to companies that would otherwise be screened out by the Adviser’s Catholic Responsible Investments screening criteria. Accordingly, the Fund limits such investments to situations where they (a) do not constitute, in the aggregate, more than 5% of the Fund’s investments at any time, and (b) where the Adviser determines such investments are necessary to achieve the Fund’s investment objective and when the Adviser believes there are no reasonable alternative investments that exist that are consistent with its Catholic Responsible Investing screening criteria. In some circumstances, the Fund may purchase ADRs, rather than foreign shares that are traded on foreign exchanges, because the ADRs have greater liquidity or for other reasons. The Fund’s securities are denominated principally in foreign currencies and are typically held outside the U.S. The Fund invests in both developed markets and emerging markets and may invest in frontier markets. The Fund defines emerging markets countries as countries that are classified by MSCI Emerging Markets Index as emerging markets, and it defines frontier markets countries as countries that are classified by MSCI Frontier Markets Index. The Fund invests principally in large and medium capitalization companies, but it may also invest in small capitalization companies.

Under normal circumstances, the Fund invests in at least three countries, and invests at least 40% of its total assets in securities of non-U.S. companies or, if conditions are not favorable, invests at least 30% of its total assets in securities of non-U.S. companies. The Fund considers a company to be a non-U.S. company if (i) the company is organized or maintains its principal place of business outside of the U.S.; (ii) the company’s securities are traded principally outside of the U.S.; (iii) at least 50% of the company’s revenues or profits are generated outside of the U.S.; (iv) at least 50% of the company’s assets are located outside of the U.S.; or (v) based on its MSCI All Country World Ex-USA Index country classification. The Fund may engage in active and frequent trading of portfolio securities to achieve its principal investment strategies.

The Fund uses a multi-manager approach, relying upon a number of sub-advisers (each, a “Sub-Adviser” and collectively, the “Sub-Advisers”) with differing investment philosophies to manage portions of the Fund’s portfolio under the general supervision of the Adviser. In managing its portion of the Fund’s assets, each Sub-Adviser generally applies an active, high conviction

approach that emphasizes different return drivers, including growth, value, and quality in selecting investments.

Causeway Capital Management LLC (“Causeway”)

The investment objective of Causeway’s international opportunities strategy utilized for the Fund is to seek long-term growth of capital through investment primarily in equity securities of companies in both developed markets – excluding the U.S. - and emerging markets using Causeway’s proprietary asset allocation methodology to determine developed and emerging market weightings. Pursuant to the Adviser’s Catholic Responsible Investment criteria, Causeway will not invest in companies excluded by such criteria, as provided from time to time to Causeway by the Adviser. For the developed markets portion, Causeway, using fundamental research supplemented by quantitative analysis, pursues a “value” investing style, meaning that it seeks to buy stocks that it believes are currently undervalued by the market and thus have a lower price than their true worth. Typical value characteristics Causeway considers include: low price-to-earnings ratio relative to the sector, high yield relative to the market, low price-to-book value ratio relative to the market, low price-to-cash flow ratio relative to the market, and financial strength. Generally, Causeway views price-to-earnings ratio and yield as the most important factors to consider. For the emerging markets portion, Causeway uses a quantitative investment approach. To select securities, Causeway’s proprietary computer model analyzes “stock-specific” factors relating to valuation, growth, technical indicators, and competitive strength, and “top-down” factors relating to macroeconomics, currency, and country sector aggregate. Currently, the valuation factor category receives the highest overall weight in the model and stock-specific factors comprise approximately 75% of the score for a company. Causeway uses quantitative signals from systems developed and managed by its quantitative portfolio managers and qualitative input from its fundamental portfolio managers to determine the allocation of assets between the international value portfolio and the emerging markets portfolio. Quantitative signals are generated by a proprietary asset allocation model designed by the quantitative portfolio managers to indicate when allocations to emerging markets should increase or decrease relative to the international opportunities strategy’s benchmark, the MSCI ACWI ex USA Index. The model currently analyzes factors in five categories: valuation, earnings growth, financial strength, macroeconomics, and risk aversion. Causeway’s fundamental portfolio managers evaluate these quantitative signals in light of fundamental analysis and the portfolio managers, as a team, determine the allocation between the international value portfolio and the emerging markets portfolio. The allocation is reassessed by the quantitative model daily and adjusted periodically when deemed appropriate by the investment team.

Principal Global Investors, LLC (“Principal Global”)

Principal Global’s International Growth Equity strategy utilized for the Fund seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in a

broadly diversified portfolio of equity securities of well established companies based on those countries included in the MSCI All Country World Ex-USA Growth Index that are believed to have above-average market appreciation potential. The International Growth Equity strategy will adhere to the Fund’s commitment to Catholic Responsible Investing.

Principal Global believes that fundamentally based, bottom-up stock-selection is the most reliable and repeatable source of consistent performance over time. Principal Global recognizes that stock markets price companies semi-efficiently. Principal Global believes that identifying meaningful mispricing requires skill and a strong focus on key attributes influencing changes in the magnitude, timing and certainty of earnings and cash flows. Principal Global also recognizes that persistent behavioral biases and structural impediments to capital flows create market inefficiencies and opportunities over time. Principal Global seeks to exploit these anomalies and inefficiencies through a focused fundamental research process, and a disciplined multi-faceted approach to risk management.

In this context, fundamental change is considered by Principal Global to be the commonly misunderstood distinction between good companies and timely investment opportunities. Principal Global believes the underlying drivers of change often come from sources such as favorable product cycles, operating initiatives that range from cost cutting to expanding distribution, better capital deployment, improved corporate governance, changing industry dynamics, and regulatory changes, for example. Principal Global’s analysts are responsible for identifying the key catalysts of fundamental change, and assessing their key drivers, magnitude and durability. Principal Global classifies change catalysts as internal or external, structural or cyclical. While each category offers opportunities, Principal Global believes that the most prominent tend to be internal-structural. In other words, those within the direct control of companies, with an expected duration of two years or more.

Principal Global further recognizes that investor expectations and relative valuation are closely interrelated, reflecting the degree to which consensus expectations are underestimating or mispricing fundamental change. Once Principal Global has identified the key drivers of sustainable change, Principal Global seeks to identify a smaller subset of companies where Principal Global believes current market expectations do not fully appreciate the magnitude of that change. Having deep and specific industry knowledge allows Principal Global’s investment team to identify positive changes that Principal Global expects will improve a company’s earnings and valuation profile but are not yet appreciated by the market. Principal Global believes that there is a persistent tendency for consensus views to adjust slowly and incrementally in response to positive change, which creates expectations gaps – either in the form of underappreciated growth (earnings surprise potential) and/or underappreciated improvement (valuation expansion potential). Recognizing these underlying behavioral biases may give

Principal Global the opportunity to gain an advantage in staying ahead of the market, and also to manage its own behavioral vulnerabilities.

WCM Investment Management, LLC (“WCM”)

In constructing its allocated portion of the Fund’s assets, WCM starts with simple-to-understand businesses that are believed to exhibit clean financials, low-or-no debt, high or rising returns on invested capital, relatively predictable free cash flow generation, and consistent earnings/revenue growth histories. In WCM’s analysis, WCM focuses on each company’s business model (particularly its economic “moat”), its corporate culture, its management, and lastly, its valuation (using industry- and/or name-specific valuation techniques). With a minimum time horizon of 3–5 years, the portion of the Fund’s portfolio allocated to WCM is expected to have lower than average turnover; WCM expects as much as half the turnover to be position-size management (trims and adds). The product of WCM’s philosophy and process is a focused, large-cap, quality, growth portfolio.

Catholic Responsible Investing

The Fund will invest its assets in a manner consistent with the components, details and definitions of Catholic Responsible Investing (“CRI”) as adopted from time to time by the De La Salle Brothers of the Christian Schools. CRI is an investment strategy designed specifically to help investors seek sound financial returns while remaining faithful to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. The components and details of CRI are intended to reflect both the charism (or founding spirit) and the current teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and, as such, the components and details are as adopted from time to time by the De La Salle Brothers of the Christian Schools, currently through the action of its civil entity, the Adviser.

CRI blends core Roman Catholic Church teaching with a disciplined, diversified investment process aimed at delivering competitive, risk-adjusted returns over time. Currently, the three components of CRI are Catholic investment screening, active ownership and diversified investment management. For more information about the Fund’s policy to invest consistent with CRI and these three components, please see the section of the prospectus entitled “More Information about the Funds’ Investment Objectives, Principal Investment Strategies and Principal Risks, Fundamental Investment Policy of Catholic Responsible Investing.”

As part of the Fund’s Catholic Responsible Investing Process, the Adviser maintains a master list of global securities that are restricted from inclusion in the Fund’s portfolio. While the Catholic Responsible Investing screening criteria are designed to exclude certain companies or investments from the potential investment universe because these companies operate businesses deemed inconsistent with Catholic values, the Adviser does not anticipate this reduction to have a material impact on the Fund’s ability to achieve its investment objective. The Adviser seeks to balance the impact of the

Catholic Responsible Investing screening criteria by either overweighting select portfolio holdings or substituting additional holdings so that the Fund’s overall portfolio composition is adjusted to achieve its investment objective. As a result, Fund performance may be different than a fund with a similar investment strategy that does not invest in accordance with Catholic Responsible Investing screening criteria.
