    The Summit GNMA Fund seeks to provide high current income along with maximum credit protection and moderate price fluctuation. The fund's minimum investment of $25,000 helps keep expenses low, thereby increasing total return potential. Mortgage-backed bonds offer higher income than Treasuries without any decrease in credit quality.

    Yield and share price will vary with interest rate changes. Investors should note that if interest rates rise significantly from current levels, bond fund total returns will decline and may even turn negative in the short term. The Summit GNMA Fund is also susceptible to prepayment risk, which occurs when homeowners pay off their loans early. An investment in the fund is not guaranteed by the U.S. government.
    *Funds are placed in general risk/return categories based on their past performance or, for newer funds, the performance of the types of securities in which they invest. There is no assurance past trends will continue.
