The performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Current performance may be lower or higher. Investment return and principal value of the fund will fluctuate, and shares may be worth more or less than their original cost when redeemed. Click quarter-end or month-end to obtain the most recent fund performance. The High Yield Fund imposes a 2.00% redemption fee on shares held for 90 days or less.

You should consider the Hotchkis & Wiley High Yield Fund's investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses carefully before you invest. This and other important information is contained in the Fund's summary prospectus and prospectus, which can be obtained by calling 800-796-5606. Read carefully before you invest.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible.  Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investment by the fund in lower-rated and non-rated securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. The Fund may invest in derivative securities, which derive their performance from the performance of an underlying asset, index, interest rate or currency exchange rate. Derivatives can be volatile and involve various types and degrees of risks. Depending on the characteristics of the particular derivative, it could become illiquid. Investment in Asset Backed and Mortgage Backed Securities include additional risks that investors should be aware of such as credit risk, prepayment risk, possible illiquidity and default, as well as increased susceptibility to adverse economic developments. The Fund may invest in foreign as well as emerging markets which involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods.

Diversification does not assure a profit nor protect against loss in a declining market.

The Morningstar Style BoxTM reveals a fund's investment style. For fixed-income funds, the vertical axis shows the credit quality of the bonds and the horizontal axis shows interest-rate sensitivity, as measured by average effective duration. Credit quality is "low" if the average credit rating is less than BBB-, "medium" if between AA- and BBB-, or "high" if greater than AA-. Interest-rate sensitivity is "limited" if average effective duration falls below 75% of the duration of the Morningstar Core Bond Index, "moderate" if between 75% and 125%, and "extensive" if above 125%.
