Returns greater than 1 year are annualized. The performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. For performance current to the most recent month-end, please call 1-866-777-8227.
Returns assume reinvestment of all dividend and capital gains distributions. Institutional Class Shares of the Fund commenced operations on October 31, 2008. As a result, the performance information provided for Institutional Class Shares incorporates the returns of Investor Class Shares of the Fund for periods before October 31, 2008. Institutional Class Shares would have substantially similar performance as Investor Class Shares because the shares are invested in the same portfolio of securities and the annual returns would generally differ only to the extent that total expenses of Institutional Class Shares are lower. Institutional Share Class: Expense ratio is 1.11% (gross); 0.90% (net). Cambiar Investors, LLC has contractually agreed to reduce fees and reimburse expenses in order to keep net operating expenses from exceeding 0.90% of the average daily net assets of each of the Fund’s share classes until March 1, 2024. Absent these waivers, total return would be reduced. The Russell 2000® Value Index measures the performance of those Russell 2000 companies with lower price-to-book ratios and lower forecasted growth values. The Russell Indices are unmanaged and returns do not reflect any management fees, transaction costs or expenses. Individuals cannot invest directly in an Index.
The Fund charges a 2.00% redemption fee on redemptions of shares held for less than 90 days.

The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The Morningstar Rating does not include any adjustment for sales loads. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. CAMZX was rated against 589 US-domiciled Small Blend funds over a three-year time period, 543 funds over a five-year period, and 372 funds over a ten-year period. With respect to these small blend funds, CAMZX received a Morningstar rating of 4 stars for the three year, 5 stars for the five-year period, and 2 stars for the 10 year period, respectively. Performance is no guarantee of future results. Morningstar Rating is for the institutional share class only; other classes may have different performance characteristics.
