Investments in foreign securities generally, and emerging markets in particular, involve risks that may differ from or at times exceed the risks of U.S. investments for a variety of reasons such as, without limitation, unstable international, regional, or national political and economic conditions, diplomatic developments such as sanctions, embargoes, trade tariffs, trade limitations or trade wars, less stringent investor protections and disclosure standards, currency fluctuations, foreign controls on investment and currency exchange, foreign governmental control of some issuers, potential confiscatory taxation or nationalization of companies by foreign governments, sovereign solvency considerations, withholding taxes, a lack of adequate company information, less liquid and more volatile exchanges and/or markets, ineffective or detrimental government regulation, varying accounting, auditing, disclosure, and reporting standards, political or economic factors that may severely limit business activities, legal systems or market practices that may permit inequitable treatment of minority and/or non-domestic investors, immature economic structures, and less developed and more thinly traded securities markets. In addition, the Fund and the stocks and markets in which it invests are subject to other general risks that include unforeseen events such as pandemics, volatility and instability, periods of cyclical change and decline, that investors may at times avoid investments in equity securities, and that the investment adviser may select investments for the Fund that do not perform as anticipated.

1 The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. ©Morningstar, Inc.

The Fund has adopted a Rule 12b-1 plan, as amended, (the “Plan”) that authorizes payments by the Fund in connection with the distribution and other fees and costs for the sale and distribution of its Investor Class shares and for services provided to its Investor Class shareholders at an annual rate, as determined from time-to-time by the Board of Trustees, of up to 0.25% of the Fund's average daily net assets attributable to Investor Class shares. The Plan states that while the maximum 12b-1 Fee rate remains limited to 0.25% per annum of the Fund's average daily net assets attributable to Investor Class shares, the Fund may be charged a lower rate from time to time upon approval by the Board of Trustees. Pursuant to the Plan, the Board of Trustees has determined to cause the Fund to accrue 12b-1 Fees at a rate of 0.25% per annum of the average daily net assets attributable to Investor Class shares of the Fund, until such time as the Board of Trustees authorizes a different rate (not exceeding 0.25% per annum). As these fees are paid out of the Fund's assets on an ongoing basis, over time these fees will increase the cost of your investment in Investor Class shares and reduce your investment returns. Institutional Class shares of the Fund are not subject to a 12b-1 fee.

These expenses include custodian, transfer agency and administration fees, certain payments to financial services agents for non-distribution expenses, appreciation or depreciation in value of Fund shares previously purchased under the Trustees Deferred Fee Plan (the “Deferred Fee Plan”), acquired fund fees and expenses, and other customary mutual fund expenses. Under the Deferred Fee Plan, Trustee deferred fees are deemed invested in the Fund and are recorded as a liability. If the Fund's performance increases, the amount of invested deferred fees increases, which results in the Fund's liability to the Trustees increasing and a resulting increase in the Fund's expenses. The opposite is true when the Fund's performance decreases, which would result in lowering the Fund's expenses. In each case, the Investor Class and the Institutional Class bear a pro rata portion of these expenses. Acquired fund fees and expenses are those expenses incurred indirectly by the Fund as a result of acquiring investments in shares of one or more other investment companies, and would be stated in a separate line item in the table if they exceeded 0.01% per annum.

Marsico Capital Management, LLC, the investment adviser to the Fund (the "Adviser"), has entered into a written expense limitation and fee waiver agreement under which it has agreed (i) to limit the total expenses of the Investor Class of the International Opportunities Fund (excluding taxes, interest, acquired fund fees and expenses, litigation, extraordinary expenses, and brokerage and other transaction expenses relating to the purchase or sale of portfolio investments) to an annual rate of 1.50% of the Fund's average net assets attributable to Investor Class shares, and (ii) to limit the total expenses of the Institutional Class of the Fund (excluding taxes, interest, acquired fund fees and expenses, litigation, extraordinary expenses, and brokerage and other transaction expenses relating to the purchase or sale of portfolio investments) to an annual rate of 1.25% of the Fund's average net assets attributable to Institutional Class shares, until January 31, 2025. It may be terminated by the Adviser at any time after January 31, 2025, upon 15 days prior notice to the Fund and its administrator. The Adviser may recoup from the Fund (or share class as applicable) any fees previously waived and/or expenses previously reimbursed by the Adviser with respect to the Fund or share class, as applicable, including any applicable waivers which may apply to a specific share class, pursuant to this agreement (including waivers or reimbursements under previous expense limitations) if (1) such recoupment by the Adviser does not cause the Fund's share class, at the time of recoupment, to exceed the lesser of (a) the expense limitation in effect at the time the relevant amount was waived and/or reimbursed, or (b) the expense limitation in effect at the time of the proposed recoupment, (2) the recoupment is made within three years after the fiscal year end date as of which the amount to be waived or reimbursed was determined and the waiver or reimbursement occurred, and (3) the Adviser has not agreed to forego recoupment. In accordance with the Funds' Multi-Class Plan, amounts eligible for recoupment from periods prior to the addition of the Institutional Class will continue to be eligible for recoupment from the Investor Class.
