Market Risk
Even a long-term investment approach cannot guarantee a profit. Economic, political, and issuer-specific events will cause the value of securities, and the funds that own them, to rise or fall. Because the value of your investment in a fund will fluctuate, there is a risk that you will lose money.

Fund of Funds Risk
The investment performance of each Portfolio is affected by the investment performance of the Underlying Funds in which the Portfolio invests. The ability of a Portfolio to achieve its investment objective depends on the ability of the Underlying Funds to meet their investment objectives and on the Advisor's decisions regarding the allocation of the Portfolio's assets among the Underlying Funds. There can be no assurance that the investment objective of any Portfolio or Underlying Fund will be achieved. Through their investments in the Underlying Funds, the Portfolios are subject to the risks of the Underlying Funds investments. The risks of the Underlying Funds may include Market Risk, Small Company Risk, Risks of Concentrating in the Real Estate Industry, Emerging Markets Risk, Interest Rate Risk, Credit Risk, and Risks of Banking Concentration. For more details regarding these risks, please see the DIG Global Portfolios Prospectus.
