Fund Description

Under normal conditions, Brown Advisory LLC (the “Adviser”) seeks to achieve the Fund’s investment objective by investing at least 80% of the value of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities of small capitalization companies. Equity securities include common stock, preferred stock, equity-equivalent securities such as convertible securities, stock futures contracts, equity options, other investment companies, American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”), real estate investment trusts (“REITs”) and exchange traded funds (“ETFs”), and the Fund may also invest in private placements in these types of securities.  Small companies, according to the Adviser, are companies whose market capitalizations are generally less than $6 billion at the time of purchase.  The Fund invests primarily in equity securities that trade in the U.S. securities markets and that the Adviser believes are undervalued, broadly defined as trading at a discount to the estimated economic value of a company’s underlying business.  The Adviser uses a research-driven analysis that results in the Fund’s portfolio having an emphasis on out-of-favor or under-followed, cash-generating companies with sustainable business models, strong finances, competent management and a demonstrable record of profitability and self-funded growth.  The Fund may also invest in cyclical companies or companies that have experienced a temporary setback if the valuation of the company is at an appropriate discount to the long-term earnings potential of the company.  To a more limited extent, the Fund may invest up to 15% of its assets in foreign equity securities, including equity securities from emerging markets.  With respect to 20% of its assets, the Fund may also invest in foreign or domestic debt securities, including up to 5% of its assets in distressed debt securities.  The Fund may utilize options, futures contracts and options on futures.  These investments will typically be made for investment purposes consistent with the Fund’s investment objective and may also be used to mitigate or hedge risks within the portfolio or for the temporary investment of cash balances.  By investing in derivatives, the Fund attempts to achieve the economic equivalence it would achieve if it were to invest directly in the underlying security.  Investments in derivatives may be counted towards the Fund’s 80% investment policy if they have economic characteristics similar to the other investments that are included in the Fund’s 80% investment policy. The Fund intends to use the mark-to-market value of such derivatives for purposes of complying with the Fund’s 80% investment policy.
The Fund invests primarily in ETFs that have an investment objective similar to the Fund’s or that otherwise are permitted investments with the Fund’s investment policies described herein.  ADRs are equity securities traded on U.S. securities exchanges, which are generally issued by banks or trust companies to evidence ownership of foreign equity securities.
The Adviser may sell a security or reduce its position if:
It has reached its target price;
Its present reward to risk ratio is unattractive;
It is overvalued; or
The company’s fundamentals have deteriorated in a material, long-term manner.
In order to respond to adverse market, economic, political, or other conditions, the Fund may assume a temporary defensive position that is inconsistent with its investment objective and principal investment strategy and invest without limit in cash and prime quality cash equivalents such as prime commercial paper and other money market instruments.  A defensive position, taken at the wrong time, may have an adverse impact on the Fund’s performance.  The Fund may be unable to achieve its investment objective during the employment of a temporary defensive measure.
