Offered by Prospectus
The Sit Mutual Funds are offered only to U.S. residents and only by a current prospectus. Carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing. The prospectus contains this and other important Fund information and may be obtained by calling Sit Mutual Funds at 1-800-332-5580 or at www.sitfunds.com. Read the prospectus carefully before investing. Mutual funds are not FDIC insured; are not deposits or obligations of, or guaranteed by, any financial institution; and are subject to risks, including possible loss of the principal amount invested.
Past performance is no indication of future results. Principal values, share prices, and investment returns fluctuate with changes in market conditions. Your investment may be worth more or less than your original cost when you redeem your shares. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted.
Consider the impact of taxes. Mutual fund shareholders may receive taxable dividends and capital gains. Taxes on such items can affect the returns you realize from your mutual fund investment. At Sit Mutual Funds, we don’t offer tax advice except to suggest that you consider the impact of taxes and that you may want to consult with your tax advisor before making any mutual fund investment.
All of the Funds are subject to certain risks. Generally, investments offering potential for higher returns are accompanied by a higher degree of risk.
Investing in international securities can involve risks different than U.S. investments. These risks include currency exchange fluctuations, high volatility, illiquidity and the possibility of political instability.
Investing in stocks of small-and mid-sized companies involve risks as they may be subject to more abrupt or erratic market movements than stocks of larger, more established companies.
