Mutual fund investing involves risk; principal loss is possible. There is no guarantee the Fund’s investment objectives will be achieved, and the market value of securities held by the Fund may fall or fail to rise. The Fund’s focus on growth stocks may cause the Fund’s performance at times to be better or worse than the performance of funds that focus on other types of stocks or that have a broader investment style. An increase in interest rates may lower the value of the fixed-income securities held by the Fund. A decrease in interest rates may lower the income earned by the Fund. More information on these risks considerations, as well as information on other risks to which the Fund is subject, are included in the Fund’s prospectus. The prospectus may be obtained by calling Sit Mutual Funds at 1-800-332-5580 or downloaded from this website. Read the prospectus carefully before investing. 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. Carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing.
Standard deviation is a measure of risk that indicates the volatility of a portfolio’s total returns as measured against its mean performance. In general, the higher the standard deviation, the greater the volatility or risk. Standard Deviation is a statistical measure of the degree to which an individual value in a probability distribution tends to vary from the mean of the distribution. Standard deviation was calculated using the most recent monthly returns for a 3 year period. Refer to the prospectus for specific risks. The fund’s measure of volatility is subject to change without notice as market or economic conditions change, and such changes may include significant and nonrecurring volatility events. Historical volatility is not necessarily indicative of future volatility and there is no guarantee that in any time period any one fund will be more or less volatile than any other fund.
