IPO Plus Fund
The Global IPO Fund is the first mutual fund to focus investment solely on initial public offerings. The Global IPO Fund seeks capital appreciation by investing in the common stocks of IPOs on the offering “Plus” in the aftermarket. The IPO market offers investors the opportunity to experience the rewards of owning fast-growing, innovative companies before they become household names. Microsoft, Cisco and Yahoo! were all once IPOs. Individual investors, however, may find direct investment in IPOs difficult, risky and expensive. Underwriters usually favor institutional clients when allocating IPO shares, so individual investors are often shut out from new issues.

Risk in investing in an IPO can be high as investors often find researching these companies prohibitively time consuming. In addition, direct investment in an IPO can be risky because of the lack of portfolio diversification. Finally, individual investors may not be able to afford the large dollar investment required by many brokerage firms.

In response, Renaissance Capital created the Global IPO Fund as an alternative to direct investment. Renaissance Capital has been researching IPOs since 1991 and is the leading IPO research firm. Renaissance Capital utilizes its proprietary analyses in choosing securities for the Fund's portfolio. As a mutual fund, the Global IPO Fund offers greater diversity than an individual security. And, the Global IPO Fund has a low minimum initial investment of $5,000 for regular accounts, $2,500 for IRAs and $1,000 under the monthly automated investment plan.

Risk Disclosure: Investments in the Renaissance IPO ETF, symbol "IPO" (the “ETF”) and the Global IPO Fund, symbol "IPOSX" (the “Mutual Fund”) are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of the principal amounts invested. The ETF and the Mutual Fund (the “Funds”) invest in companies that have recently completed their initial public offerings. These stocks are unseasoned equities lacking trading history, a track record of reporting to investors and widely available research coverage which many result in extreme price volatility. The Funds may also be subject to information technology risk and small and mid-capitalization company risk due to a greater number of IPOs in these sectors. The Funds may hold securities in the form of Depository Receipts, REITs, Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) which have greater risks than common shares. The strategy has high portfolio turnover and securities lending risks. ETF returns may not match the return of the respective index. The ETF is classified as a non-diversified investment company and is subject to concentration risk.
