Fund objective

The Fund seeks to provide long-term growth of capital.

How the Fund invests

The Fund seeks to invest in securities of growth companies commonly identified by their relatively high book/price ratio or by their membership in the Russell 1000® Growth Index and that Avantis expects to have higher returns. The Fund normally invests across a range of market sectors and industry groups. The Fund seeks securities of companies that Avantis expects to have higher returns, by placing an enhanced emphasis on securities of companies with more attractive profitability and valuation characteristics. Conversely, the Fund seeks to deemphasize or exclude securities that Avantis expects to have lower returns, such as securities of companies with less attractive profitability and valuation characteristics.

The Avantis Opportunity

The portfolio management team believes solutions can be designed to capture the benefits of indexing while simultaneously focusing on segments of the market that are expected to outperform.

1Prior to November 29, 2023, the Fund was managed by EIM as a fund-of-funds under the name "1290 Retirement 2060 Fund" and pursued its investment objective through investments in underlying exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

2The Class I shares inception date is Febuary 27, 2017. The Class A shares inception date is 11/29/2023. Maximum Offering Price (MOP) for Class A shares includes the Fund's maximum sales charge of 5.50%. Performance shown at NAV does not include these sales charges and would have been lower had it been taken into account.

4Pursuant to a contract, Equitable Investment Management, LLC (the “Adviser”) has agreed to make payments or waive its and its affiliates’ management, administrative and other fees to limit the expenses of the Fund through April 30, 2025 (unless the Board of Trustees consents to an earlier revision or termination of this arrangement) (“Expense Limitation Arrangement”) so that the annual operating expenses (including Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses) of the Fund (exclusive of taxes, interest, brokerage commissions, capitalized expenses (other than offering costs), 12b-1 fees, dividend and interest expenses on securities sold short, and extraordinary expenses not incurred in the ordinary course of the Fund’s business) do not exceed an annual rate of average daily net assets of 0.65% for Class A shares, Class T shares, Class I shares, and Class R shares of the Fund. The Expense Limitation Arrangement may be terminated by the Adviser at any time after April 30, 2025. The Adviser may be reimbursed the amount of any such payments or waivers in the future provided that the payments or waivers are reimbursed within three years of the payments or waivers being recorded and the Fund’s expense ratio, after the reimbursement is taken into account, does not exceed the Fund’s expense cap at the time of the waiver or the Fund’s expense cap at the time of the reimbursement, whichever is lower. The total annual fund operating expense ratios after fee waiver and/or expense reimbursement for Class A shares, Class T shares, and Class R shares, as shown in the table, are higher than the Fund’s expense cap because these ratios include 12b-1 fees and certain other expenses, as noted above, that are excluded from the Expense Limitation Arrangement.

Fund resources

The Fund is subject to the risk that the securities markets will move down, sometimes rapidly and unpredictably, based on overall economic conditions and other factors, which may negatively affect Fund performance. The value of a security can be more volatile than the market as a whole and can perform differently from the market as a whole. Any issuer of securities may perform poorly, causing the value of its securities to decline. Poor performance may be caused by a variety of factors. In general, the values of stocks and other equity securities fluctuate, and sometimes widely fluctuate, in response to changes in a company’s financial condition as well as general market, economic and political conditions and other factors. Larger more established companies may be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges such as changes in technology and consumer tastes, which may lead to a decline in their market price. The Fund may invest a relatively high percentage of its assets in a limited number of issuers. The Fund may not be successful in implementing its investment strategy, and there can be no assurance that the Fund will grow to or maintain an economically viable size, which could result in the Fund being liquidated at any time without shareholder approval and at a time that may not be favorable for all shareholders. The Fund may use a particular style or set of styles — in this case, a “growth” style — to select investments. Growth stocks may be more sensitive to changes in current or expected earnings than the prices of other stocks. The Fund is subject to the risk that strategies used by an investment manager and its securities selections fail to produce the intended results.
