    Fund Differentiators*

    • Dividends can provide stability during turbulent markets and be meaningful to your overall investment returns
    • Quality businesses that pay dividends are typically healthy and generate more cash than they need for operations

    Past performance is not indicative of future results, current performance may be higher or lower than the performance date quoted. Investment returns may fluctuate; the value of your investment upon redemption may be more or less than the initial amount invested. All returns are net of expenses.

    Please consider a fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. The FAM Funds prospectus or summary prospectus contains this and other important information about the FAM Dividend Focus Fund and should be read carefully before you invest or send money. The principal risks of investing in the fund are: stock market risk (stocks fluctuate in response to the activities of individual companies and to general stock market and economic conditions), stock selection risk (Fenimore utilizes a value approach to stock selection and there is risk that the stocks selected may not realize their intrinsic value, or their price may go down over time), and small-cap risk (prices of small-cap companies can fluctuate more than the stocks of larger companies and may not correspond to changes in the stock market in general).
