GAS reviews each Fund’s risk rating at least once a year, and also when a Fund undergoes a material change. These changes are the result of an annual review and do not result from any change in the investment objectives, strategies or management of Stone mutual funds. A summary of this methodology and each Fund’s investment objectives and strategies can be found in the Fund’s prospectus dated June 16, 2021, the risk rating will be updated in the next prospectus renewal which is expected to be available on or about June 15, 2022.
