MUTUAL FUNDS INVOLVE RISK INCLUDING POSSIBLE LOSS OF PRINCIPAL.
Ellington Income Opportunities Fund
Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Ellington Income Opportunities Fund. This and other important information about the Fund are contained in the Prospectus, which can be obtained by contacting your ﬁnancial advisor, or by calling 1-855-862-6092. The Prospectus should be read carefully before investing. Princeton Fund Advisors, LLC, and Foreside Fund Services, LLC are not affiliated. Investing involves risk including the possible loss of principal. ABS, RMBS and CMBS are subject to credit risk because underlying loan borrowers may default. Additionally, these securities are subject to prepayment risk because the underlying loans held by the issuers may be paid off prior to maturity. The value of these securities may go down as a result of changes in prepayment rates on the underlying mortgages or loans. During periods of declining interest rates, prepayment rates usually increase and the Fund may have to by the Fund may be lowered if an issuer's ﬁnancial condition changes. reinvest prepayment proceeds at a lower interest rate. CMBS are less susceptible to this risk because underlying loans may have prepayment penalties or prepayment lockout periods. There is a risk that issuers and counterparties will not make payments on securities and other investments held by the Fund, resulting in losses to the Fund. In addition, the credit quality of securities held. Lower-quality ﬁxed income securities, known as "high yield" or "junk" bonds, present greater risk than bonds of higher quality, including an increased risk of default. An economic downturn or period of rising interest rates could adversely affect the market for these bonds and reduce the Fund's ability to sell its bonds. The lack of a liquid market for these bonds could decrease the Fund's share price. Repayment of defaulted securities and obligations of distressed issuers (including insolvent issuers or issuers in payment or covenant default, in workout or restructuring or in bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings) is subject to signiﬁcant uncertainties. Investments in defaulted securities and obligations of distressed issuers are considered speculative as are junk bonds in general. The value of a speciﬁc security can be more volatile than the market as a whole and can perform differently from the value of the market as a whole. The value of securities of smaller issuers can be more volatile than those of larger issuers. The value of certain types of securities can be more volatile due to increased sensitivity to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Liquidity risk exists when particular investments of the Fund would be difficult to purchase or sell, possibly preventing the Fund from selling such illiquid securities at an advantageous time or price, or possibly requiring the Fund to dispose of other investments at unfavorable times or prices in order to satisfy its obligations. The advisor's and sub-advisors' judgments about the attractiveness, value and potential appreciation of particular asset classes and securities in which the Fund invests (long or short) may prove to be incorrect and may not produce the desired results. Additionally, the advisor's judgments about the potential performance of the sub-advisor may also prove incorrect and may not produce the desired results. Overall equity and ﬁxed income securities and derivatives market risks may affect the value of individual instruments in which the Fund invests. Factors such as domestic and foreign economic growth and market conditions, interest rate levels, and political events affect the securities and derivatives markets. When the value of the Fund's investments goes down, your investment in the Fund decreases in value and you could lose money. Smaller companies may have limited product lines, markets or ﬁnancial resources, and they may be dependent on a limited management group. Securities of smaller companies may be subject to more abrupt or erratic market movements than those of larger, more established companies or the market averages in general. Underlying funds are subject to investment advisory and other expenses, which will be indirectly paid by the Fund. As a result, the cost of investing in the Fund will be higher than the cost of investing directly in an underlying fund and may be higher than other funds that invest directly in stocks and bonds. Underlying funds are subject to speciﬁc risks, depending on the nature of the fund.
Princeton Premium Fund
There is a risk that issuers and counterparties will not make payments on securities and other investments held by the Fund, resulting in losses to the Fund. The value of the Fund's investments in fixed income securities will fluctuate with changes in interest rates. Options involve risks possibly greater than the risks associated with investing directly in securities. There is no guarantee that the sub-adviser's options strategy will be effective or that suitable transactions will be available. The Fund uses options to increase the Fund's combined long and short exposure which creates leverage, which can magnify the Fund's potential for gain or loss. The Fund expects its premium collection options strategy to be market neutral and therefore the Fund does not expect to participate fully in positive markets which may not generate positive returns as intended. Liquidity risk may prevent the Fund from selling illiquid securities at an advantageous time or price, or possibly requiring the Fund to dispose of other investments at unfavorable times or prices in order to satisfy its obligations. As a non-diversified fund, the Fund may invest more than 5% of its total assets in the securities of one or more issuers. Dramatic or abrupt volatility within the market would negatively impact the Fund's premium collection options strategy. The Fund's return may not match the return of the S&P 500 Index because it is not investing the equity securities that comprise such index. The Fund incurs operating expenses not applicable to the Index, and incurs costs in buying and selling securities. The Fund is a new mutual fund and prior to its recent commencement of operations had no history of operations for investors to evaluate. The adviser's and any sub-adviser's judgments about the long-term returns the Fund may generate through its principal investment strategies may prove to be incorrect and may not produce the desired results. The Fund's principal investment strategies may not achieve their intended results and each strategy could negatively impact the Fund.
Princeton Everest Fund
This document does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy securities. Any such offer will be made only by means of the Confidential Private Placement Memorandum (the "PPM"). This document does not contain a complete description of the Fund and the risks associated with an investment therein. Prospective investors and their respective advisors should consider the investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses of the Fund carefully and read the PPM carefully before investing. Nothing contained in this document is intended to constitute legal, tax, securities or investment advice. The Securities and Exchange Commission has not approved or disapproved of the securities of the Fund described herein and in the PPM and has not passed upon the adequacy of this document or the PPM. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.
An investment in the Fund is suitable only for accredited investors who fully understand and are capable of assuming the risks inherent in investing in the Fund. Such investors should: possess adequate financial means; be able to tolerate a high degree of risk and the potential of losing their entire investment; not require a liquid investment or access to their invested capital for a long period of time; not have the investment constitute their complete investment program.
The Fund may take several years to fully deploy its private equity strategy as it waits for capital to be called, and investors may not realize the full potential benefits of an investment in the Fund in the near term. In addition, there may be little or no near-term cash flow distributed by the Fund. The Fund's shares are highly speculative and illiquid and are subject to significant limitations on transferability. Liquidity will be provided only through limited repurchase offers described in the PPM. Although the Fund may offer to repurchase shares from time to time, shares will not be redeemable at an investor's sole option nor will they be exchangeable for shares of any other fund. Shares of the Fund are not listed on a securities exchange, and it is not anticipated that a secondary market for shares will develop.
In making an investment decision, investors must rely upon their own examination of the Fund and the terms of the Offering, including the merits and risks involved.
An investment in the Fund includes significant additional risks, including: risk of loss of investment; risks related to limitation on transfer of Fund shares; risks related to the Fund's limited operating history; foreign investment risks; sector-specific risks; risks regarding financial and market conditions; risks regarding the legal, regulatory and political climate and changes therein; risks related to special situation companies; reliance on key personnel; conflicts of interest of the Fund and the Investment Funds relating to compensation and fees, including incentive fees, payable to their management; risks related to real estate-related assets; the risk of capital calls made on short notice; and risks related to investment in non-U.S. securities. The Fund may borrow money to meet redemption needs or for investment purposes. Such borrowing may increase the Fund's net expenses and risk of loss.
If the Fund pays any distributions, it may pay such distributions in significant part from sources that may not be available in the future and that are unrelated to the Fund's performance, such as from offering proceeds, borrowings, and amounts from the Fund's affiliates that may be subject to repayment by the Fund. All or a portion of a distribution may consist of a return of capital. Return of capital is the portion of a distribution that is a return of your original investment dollars in the Fund.
Shares of the Fund are not deposits or obligations of, or guaranteed or endorsed by, any bank or other insured financial institution, and are not federally insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Reserve Board or any other government agency.
The Fund intends to qualify as a Regulated Investment Company under the Internal Revenue Code and thus must satisfy, among other requirements, certain ongoing asset diversification, source-of-income and annual distribution requirements. If the Fund fails in any of the requirements, it may be subject to adverse tax consequences.
The Fund's investments in Investment Funds, and many of the investments held by the Investment Funds, will be priced in the absence of a readily available market and may be priced based on determinations of fair value, which may prove to be inaccurate. Neither the Advisor nor the Board of Trustees will be able to confirm independently the accuracy of the Investment Fund Managers' valuations (which are unaudited, except at year-end). This risk is exacerbated to the extent that Investment Funds generally provide valuations only on a quarterly basis. While such information is provided on a quarterly basis, the Fund will provide valuations, and will issue Shares, on a monthly basis.
The Fund (and some of the underlying funds it may invest in) has no or limited operating history. An investment in the Fund is less transparent than an investment in publicly-traded securities and investors in the Fund are afforded less regulatory protections than investors in publicly traded securities. The Fund's investments in Investment Funds, and many of the investments held by the Investment Funds, will be priced in the absence of a readily available market or significant other information and such investments will be priced based on determinations of fair value, which may prove to be inaccurate. The Fund may make a limited number of investments. These investments involve a high degree of risk. The Fund anticipates that it will maintain a sizable position in cash or liquid securities in anticipation of funding capital calls.
No assurance can be given that the Fund's investment program will be successful. Accordingly, the Fund should be considered a speculative investment and entails substantial risks, and a prospective investor should invest in the Fund only if it can sustain a complete loss of its investment. An investment in the Fund should be viewed only as part of an overall investment program. The success of an Investment Fund's activities will typically depend on the ability of the relevant Investment Fund Manager to identify investment opportunities, enhance portfolio company value and to see when target improvements/value is reached. The Advisor may invest the Fund's assets in Investment Funds that engage in investment strategies other than those described, and may sell the Fund's portfolio holdings at any time.
Please see the PPM for additional risks related to an investment in the Fund. The PPM is part of the investor kit, which contains this and other important information.
Closed-Funds involve risk including the possible loss of principal. Many of the Underlying Funds may have limited operating histories and the information the Fund will obtain about such investments may be limited. As such, the ability of the Advisor to evaluate past performance or to validate the investment strategies of such Underlying funds will be limited. The Advisor has complete discretion to select the Investment Funds as opportunities arise. The transferability of Shares is subject to certain restrictions. The Fund is a non-diversified, closed-end management investment company designed primarily for long-term investors and is not intended to be a trading vehicle. An Investor should not invest in the Fund if the investor needs a liquid investment. To provide liquidity to Investors, the Fund may, from time to time, offer to repurchase Shares pursuant to written tenders by Investors. Repurchases will be made at such times, in such amounts and on such terms as may be determined by the Board, in its sole discretion.
The Fund generally expects to distribute to the holder of Shares that are repurchased a promissory note entitling such holder to the payment of cash in satisfaction of such repurchase. Subject to the regulatory restrictions described below, the Fund may borrow money in connection with its investment activities. Recent legal and regulatory changes, and additional legal and regulatory changes that could occur during the term of the Fund, may substantially affect private equity funds and such changes may adversely impact the performance of the Fund. An Investor in the Fund meeting the eligibility conditions imposed by the Investment Funds, including minimum initial investment requirements that may be substantially higher than those imposed by the Fund, could invest directly in the Investment Funds. In addition, by investing in the Investment Funds through the Fund, an Investor in the Fund will bear a portion of the Management Fee and other expenses of the Fund. The Fund intends to hold its interests in the Investment Funds in non-voting form. The Fund is a "non-diversified" investment company for purposes of the 1940 Act.
The Fund may accept additional subscriptions for Shares as determined by the Board, in its sole discretion. The valuations reported by the Investment Funds based upon which the Fund determines its net asset value calculated as of month-end and the net asset value of each Share, may be subject to later adjustment or revision. Investors who beneficially own Shares that constitute more than 5% or 10% of the Fund's Shares are subject to certain requirements.
The Investment Funds will include direct and indirect investments in various companies, ventures and businesses. The Investment Funds may invest in low grade or unrated debt securities (i.e., "high yield" or "junk" bonds or leveraged loans) or investments in securities of distressed companies. Private equity is a common term for investments that are typically made in private or public companies through privately negotiated transactions, and generally involve equity-related finance intended to bring about some kind of change in a private business. An Investment Fund may invest in venture capital. An Investment Fund may invest in mezzanine loans. The Fund may be exposed to real estate risk through the Investment Funds. Some Investment Funds may invest a portion of their assets in Portfolio Companies with small- to medium-sized market capitalizations. An Investment Fund may concentrate its investments in specific geographic regions.
Some Investment Funds may invest in Portfolio Companies located in emerging industrialized or less developed countries. An Investment Fund may concentrate its investments in specific industry sectors. This focus may constrain the liquidity and the number of Portfolio Companies available for investment by an Investment Fund. Energy companies may be significantly affected by outdated technology, short product cycles, falling prices and profits, market competition and risks associated with using hazardous materials. Certain technology companies may have limited product lines, markets or financial resources, or may depend on a limited management group. Financial services companies are subject to extensive governmental regulation that may limit the amounts and types of loans and other financial commitments they can make, and the interest rates and fees they can charge.
Investment Funds may include direct and indirect investments in a number of different currencies. The valuation of the Fund's investments in Investment Funds is ordinarily determined based upon valuations provided by the Investment Funds on a quarterly basis. The Fund may be required to indemnify certain of the Investment Funds and their respective managers, officers, directors, and affiliates from any liability, damage, cost, or expense. An Investment Fund may, among other things, terminate the Fund's interest in that Investment Fund. The overall performance of the Fund's secondary investments will depend in large part on the acquisition price paid, which may be negotiated based on incomplete or imperfect information. The Fund may acquire contingent liabilities associated with such interest. The Fund anticipates that it will maintain a sizeable cash position in anticipation of funding capital calls. The Fund may invest in investment companies such as open-end funds (mutual funds), closed-end funds, and exchange traded funds, or private funds exempt from registration such as hedge funds and private equity funds
Each Investment Fund Manager may receive a performance fee, carried interest or incentive allocation generally equal to 20% of the net profits earned by the Investment Fund that it manages, typically subject to a clawback. The business of identifying and structuring investments of the types contemplated by the Fund is competitive, and involves a high degree of uncertainty. The availability of investment opportunities is subject to market conditions and may also be affected by the prevailing regulatory or political climate.
Investment Funds may take control positions in companies. The exercise of control over a company imposes additional risks of liability for environmental damage, product defects, failure to supervise and other types of liability related to business operations. No assurance can be given that the returns on the Fund's investments will be proportionate to the risk of investment in the Fund. Potential Investors should not invest in the Fund unless they have the resources to sustain the loss of their entire investment. From time to time, the Fund or an Investment Fund or their respective affiliates may come into possession of material, non-public information concerning an entity or issuer in which the Fund or an Investment Fund has invested or may invest. The possession of such information may limit the Fund's or the Investment Fund's ability to buy or sell securities of the issuer. The Fund's assets, and any interest in the Investment Funds held by the Fund, are available to satisfy all liabilities and other obligations of the Fund.
The Fund may repurchase Fund Shares held by an Investor or other person acquiring Shares from or through an Investor. These provisions may, in effect, deprive an Investor in the Fund of an opportunity for a return that might be received by other Investors. The Advisor expects that the Fund will participate in multiple Investments. The Fund may, however, make investments in a limited number of the Investment Funds and Investment Funds may make investments in a limited number of Portfolio Companies. It is expected that Investors will invest in the Fund pursuant to preexisting relationships with Sub-Placement Agents. Special tax risks are associated with an investment in the Fund. The Fund intends to qualify and elect to be treated as a "regulated investment company" or "RIC" under Subchapter M of the Code.
Investors should carefully consider the investment objective, risks, charges and expenses of the Princeton Everest Fund .

Glossary of Terms:
J-Curve – In private equity funds, the J-Curve effect occurs when funds initially experience negative returns. This is a common experience, as the early years of the fund include capital drawdowns and an investment portfolio that has yet to mature. If the fund is well managed, it will recover from its initial losses and the returns will form a J-Curve: losses in the beginning dip down below the initial value, and later returns show profits above the initial level. Vintage Year – The first year that the private equity or private credit fund draws down or "calls" committed capital. Buyout – Funds that acquire controlling interests in companies with a view towards later selling those companies or taking them public. Direct Lending – A form of corporate debt provision in which lenders other than banks make loans to companies without intermediates. Opportunistic Private Debt – Private credit funds that seek to identify strong risk-adjusted returns across underserved niche investment classes where inefficiencies exist. Special Situations – Particular circumstances that influence investments based on the situation, rather than its underlying fundamentals.
Eagle MLP Strategy Fund
Investments in MLPs involve risks different from those of investing in common stock including risks related to limited control and limited rights to vote on matters affecting the MLP, risks related to potential conflicts of interest between the MLP and the MLP's general partner, cash flow risks, dilution risks and risks related to the general partner's limited call right. If, in any year, the Fund fails to qualify as a regulated investment company under the applicable tax laws, the Fund would be taxed as an ordinary corporation, which may result in a reduction of the value of your investment. The Fund focuses its investments in the energy infrastructure sector, through MLP securities. Due to focus in this sector, the performance of the Fund is tied closely to and affected by developments in the energy sector and may be subject to greater volatility than investments in a wider variety of industries.
There is a risk that issuers and counterparties will not make payments on securities and other investments held by the Fund, resulting in losses to the Fund. The Fund's distribution policy is not designed to guarantee distributions that equal a fixed percentage of the Fund's current net asset value per share. ETNs are subject to credit risk and their value will be influenced by time to maturity, supply and demand, volatility and lack of liquidity in underlying commodities markets, changes in interest rates, changes in the issuer's credit rating, and economic, legal, or political events. Investments in foreign securities could subject the Fund to greater risks including, currency fluctuation, economic conditions, and different governmental and accounting standards. In general, the price of a fixed income security falls when interest rates rise. Non-diversification risk, as the Funds are more vulnerable to events affecting a single issuer. Investments in lesser-known, small and medium capitalization companies may be more vulnerable than larger, more established organizations. MLP-related structured notes involve tracking risk, issuer default risk and may involve leverage risk.
Deer Park Fund
ABS, MBS, RMBS and CMBS Risk: ABS, MBS, RMBS and CMBS are subject to credit risk because underlying loan borrowers may default. Because ABS are typically backed by consumer loans, their default rates tend to be sensitive to the unemployment rate and overall economic conditions. RMBS default rates tend to be sensitive to these conditions and to home prices. CMBS default rates tend to be sensitive to overall economic conditions and to localized commercial property vacancy rates and prices. Certain individual securities may be more sensitive to default rates because payments may be subordinated to other securities of the same issuer. Additionally, ABS, MBS, RMBS and CMBS are subject to prepayment risk because the underlying loans held by the issuers may be paid off prior to maturity. The value of these securities may go down as a result of changes in prepayment rates on the underlying mortgages or loans. During periods of declining interest rates, prepayment rates usually increases and the Fund may have to reinvest prepayment proceeds at a lower interest rate. CMBS are less susceptible to this risk because underlying loans may have prepayment penalties or prepayment lock out periods.
There is a risk that issuers and counterparties will not make payments on securities and other investments held by the Fund, resulting in losses to the Fund. In addition, the credit quality of securities held by the Fund may be lowered if an issuer's financial condition changes. Lower credit quality may lead to greater volatility in the price of a security and in shares of the Fund. Lower credit quality also may affect liquidity and make it difficult for the Fund to sell the security. Default, or the market's perception that an issuer is likely to default, could reduce the value and liquidity of securities held by the Fund, thereby reducing the value of your investment in Fund shares. In addition, default may cause the Fund to incur expenses in seeking recovery of principal or interest on its portfolio holdings. Credit risk also exists whenever the Fund enters into a foreign exchange or derivative contract, because the counterparty may not be able or may choose not to perform under the contract. When the Fund invests in foreign currency contracts, or other over-the-counter derivative instruments (including options), it is assuming a credit risk with regard to the party with which it trades and also bears the risk of settlement default. These risks may differ materially from risks associated with transactions effected on an exchange, which generally are backed by clearing organization guarantees, daily mark-to-market and settlement, segregation and minimum capital requirements applicable to intermediaries. Transactions entered into directly between two counterparties generally do not benefit from such protections. Relying on a counterparty exposes the Fund to the risk that a counterparty will not settle a transaction in accordance with its terms and conditions because of a dispute over the terms of the contract (whether or not bona fide) or because of a credit or liquidity problem, thus causing the Fund to suffer a loss. If a counterparty defaults on its payment obligations to the Fund, this default will cause the value of an investment in the Fund to decrease. In addition, to the extent the Fund deals with a limited number of counterparties, it will be more susceptible to the credit risks associated with those counterparties. The Fund is neither restricted from dealing with any particular counterparty nor from concentrating any or all of its transactions with one counterparty. The ability of the Fund to transact business with any one or number of counterparties and the absence of a regulated market to facilitate settlement may increase the potential for losses by the Fund.
