Each tactical overlay will trigger 50% of the Fund into a defensive position, should market conditions warrant. When in a defensive position, the Fund will be invested in short-term U.S. Treasury ETFs.

As with all mutual funds, there is the risk that you could lose money through your investment in the Fund. The net asset value of the Fund will fluctuate based on changes in the value of the equity securities in which it invests. Hedging strategies may not perform as anticipated by the adviser and the Fund could suffer losses by hedging with underlying money market funds if stock prices do not decline. If money market funds are utilized, such Underlying Funds are subject to investment advisory and other expenses, which will be indirectly paid by the Fund. As a result, your cost of investing in the Fund will be higher than the cost of investing directly in Underlying Funds and may be higher than other mutual funds that do not invest in Underlying Funds.

Donoghue Forlines Floating Rate Fund tracks an Index that is a service mark of Donoghue Forlines LLC. One cannot invest directly in an index. The Index is a rules-based index, which reflects the theoretical performance an investor would have obtained had it invested in the manner shown and does not represent returns actually obtained and does not represent returns an investor actually attained, as investors cannot invest directly in an index.

The Index performance includes the reinvestments of all dividends and distributions. Past performance is no guarantee of future results or returns. The inclusion of the all indices are for comparison purposes only.

S&P/LSTA U.S. Leveraged Loan 100 Index was the first index to track the investable senior loan market. This rules-based index consists of the 100 largest loan facilities in the benchmark S&P/ LSTA Leveraged Loan Index. It is included for comparison purposes only. The historical performance results of the Index are unmanaged; do not reflect the deduction of transaction and custodial charges, or the deduction of a management fee, the incurrence of which would have the effect of decreasing indicated historical performance results and cannot be invested in directly. Economic factors, market conditions and investment strategies will affect the performance of any portfolio, and therefore are not assurances that it will match or outperform any particular benchmark.

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.

Morningstar Rating is for the I share class only; other classes may have different performance characteristics.

ASAPP and Palmer Solutions release insights on Measuring Digital Transformation

TORONTO AND LONDON, ONTARIO, CANADA, January 29, 2021 / — A recent study, published in 2020 by Deloitte (Realizing the digital promise | COVID-19 catalyzes and accelerates transformation in financial services) uncovered that the average cost-to-income ratio of digital-only banks was only 47%. With Canadian credit unions hovering in the 80% efficiency ratio range, it’s critical to quickly consider the competitive pressures and opportunities that digital transformation is presenting for the sector.

ASAPP Financial Technology and Palmer Solutions have partnered together, to publish the second release of ASAPP’s Canadian Credit Unions Insights Series. This report combines industry insight, relevant data from industry publications, and best practice methodologies implemented, by both firms, over the past decade to help credit union leaders identify, form, and package a stronger and more strategic approach to measuring the effectiveness of digital transformation.

“The concept of digital transformation is both “new” and “not new” within the Canadian credit union industry” says JR Pierman, President & CEO of ASAPP. “While credit unions have been undertaking transformational activities for years, including those centered around technology issues, there is a difference today in terms of how imperative and immersive digital transformation is for the credit union industry.”

This second release, in the Canadian Credit Union Insight Series, follows on the initial release centered on the importance of Assets per Member as a metric that should be measured, monitored, and managed.

In order to truly understand the impacts on Assets per Member (what’s causing increases and decreases), Pierman, says, “it is necessary to understand the role all channels are playing in the credit union’s success. Consequently, in order to make a positive impact on Assets per Member, credit unions must understand, adopt, and invest in measuring their digital transformation activities.”

“Digital transformation is not a separate initiative that should be specifically justified or planned – it should be intertwined within the overall credit union strategy and objectives” says Chris Palmer, Principal at Palmer Solutions. “It’s imperative that credit unions incorporate digital measurement into their broader organizational metrics, while at the same time, ensuring management has an effective way to isolate digital contribution and report its effectiveness across channels over time.”

Understanding a few basic principles in measuring digital transformation can have a positive impact on your efforts. To learn more about measuring the effects of digital transformation, please visit or contact Tony Dunham and request the second edition of the Canadian Credit Unions Insights Report.

Roth Real Estate Group Achieves 30% Close Rate for New Leases with Retailsphere

retailsphere next gen search platform

Retailsphere unveils the most innovative advanced search tool to reignite the commercial leasing process

Using Retailsphere’s platform, company boosts lead generation during Pandemic Slump

The fact that we own 18 shopping centers eases the concerns a property owner may have because we know the challenges of being a property owner. ”

— Carter Stephens, Commercial Real Estate Advisor for Roth Real Estate Group

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, UNITED STATES, January 29, 2021 / — With 60 years of experience and an iron-clad reputation as a company that delivers, Roth Real Estate Group figured out how to win big in real estate—that is until the effects of the worldwide pandemic hit their Columbus, Ohio business. Faced with new challenges that made it harder than ever to find suitable retail tenant leads for their commercial vacancies, Roth RE turned to Retailsphere, the world’s most comprehensive retail tenant database, and CRM, to fill up their pipeline and improve their chances of closing deals.

The technology that Retailsphere makes available through their exclusive platform resulted in over 100 new, well-matched contacts to Roth RE’s pipeline, a 30% close rate on new leases initiated, and new research on more than 75 national brands that could become future tenants by utilizing Retailsphere’s research request feature. In addition, Roth RE was able to find information that helped them become more competitive with coveted, local, multi-unit tenants.

By leveraging their own real estate portfolio with that of Retailsphere’s powerful platform that dates back to the founder’s research at MIT, Roth RE was able to rise against the pandemic slowdown and close more deals with high-quality tenant prospects garnered from Retailsphere. Speaking on their ability to build trust with potential tenants, Carter Stephens, Commercial Real Estate Advisor for Roth, commented, “the fact that we own 18 shopping centers eases the concerns a property owner may have because we know the challenges of being a property owner. We can sit at the same side of the table as them and understand their needs because we have the same needs.”

According to the Roth RE group, they were not expecting immediate results from signing on with Retailsphere, yet that is exactly what they received. In addition to growing their prospect list during the continuing pandemic, Roth also leveraged the platform’s retail leasing search data to streamline their operations. Using Retailsphere, they were able to add retail tenant data to their company CRM with the click of a button, creating a seamless connection to their established email and phone leasing sequences for ongoing marketing.

In addition to these benefits, Roth also noted that they appreciated Retailsphere’s personalized service whenever their team could not find the retail information they needed. Stephens noted that he could easily “submit a research request for retailer information and the Retailsphere team always gets back to [him]. It's great to have other people finding the information that we need to follow up with all of these brands.”

About Retailsphere
Retailsphere provides more comprehensive retailer data and retail-related news than any other platform available in the industry. Retailsphere’s retailer profiles give shopping center owners, leasing executives, and commercial real estate brokers the data they need to analyze the market and make strategic business decisions when approaching potential tenants. By leveraging the data made available to them, Retailsphere customers can identify, connect with, and ultimately sign leases with better tenants. Founded in 2018, Retailsphere has more accurate data in dozens of metro areas across the United States than any other database. Retail insights from every angle.

We Insure is experiencing high demand from entrepreneurs for its innovative franchise insurance offering. The Florida-based company was created by a former captive agent with a mission to tackle the insurance industry’s biggest challenges.

Will local coworking see a new era after Lockdown?

Will local coworking emerge as the choice for home workers after lockdown?

Now in midst of Lockdown 3.0 in the UK, will local coworking be the
go-to choice for freelancers, journalists and small business owners?

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, January 29, 2021 / — Now on lockdown 3.0 in the UK, it’s true to say that by now, most people have settled in to the home working scenario, but although it has obvious benefits to workers, in terms of flexibility, there are many aspects that make working at home difficult for a wide range of workers.

Flexible space operators have not been slow to recognise that behind the oft-interrupted Zoom or Team calls, there is genuine stress being experienced by workers, trying to keep a professional image against a backdrop of distractions and regular home WiFi dropout.

Workspace providers have therefore been busy in preparation for what is seen as a potential upturn later in the year, once the effects of mass-immunisation start to bring infection rates down and confidence returns.

This has included making spaces fully Covid-Compliant, introducing new space utilisation, in terms of fewer workstations per area, as well as signage and hygiene facilities to encourage user confidence.

Local coworking has a number of benefits over the home office, not least that in a professional coworking space, the technology and connectivity are almost always on point, allowing freelancers, journalists, film-makers, businessmen with data-heavy apps uninterrupted.

Of course, during the current lockdown, the use of remote work centres outside the home has reduced, but many workers are still finding it worth the effort to use a local flexible office for necessary work tasks, they are finding impossible to do at home.

It’s not just about connectivity, many workers simply don’t have the space to allow for proper working and concentration, often appearing on office Zoom calls sat on beds or in crowded spare rooms as a backdrop!

Pets and children are often making unscheduled appearances (or sounds) during online meetings, further aggravating an already tense home working situation (not to mention copious Amazon drivers knocking, or the house next door cutting tiles).

Unilever’s CEO, Alan Jope, announced in mid January of this year, they would never be making a full time return to the office, read the article here
For many workers in businesses like Unilever, whose leaders are making similar strategic moves, this creates mixed emotions, i.e. they love the flexibility and relative independence, but loathe their inadequate home-office facilities.

Indeed, in a recent article published on HR News from TopCV, the world’s largest CV-writing service, whose research revealed that UK employees want ongoing flexibility from their employer, with just 7 percent of professionals ranking an office return as their top priority for 2021. See the full article here

Localised flexible working would appear to have benefits for both employers and their workforce, as it gives the best of both worlds to each party; that being greater productivity and reduced fixed office costs for employers, and improved staff morale and wellbeing for workers.

It remains to be seen how everything unfolds over the coming months, but many observers see flexible working outside of the main office as something that’s only going to increase in demand, even long after lockdown restrictions have ended.

NEWS: Park City, UTAH "John Scott Underwood" Top 10, Winner, Best-of-State Construction, Premier Estate Builder

PARK CITY, UTAH, USA, January 29, 2021 / — John Scott Underwood remains to this day a pioneer estate home builder in Utah and surrounding states. Being responsible for the design and construction of numerous award-winning estate and residential homes in Utah has gained him a reputation for delivering exactly what his clients dream up, no matter how unusual their dream homes or building projects may be.

John Scott Underwood’s reputation for giving clients what they ask for did not develop overnight. It started in 1996 when he founded his own construction company, STARWOOD GROUPE. As a construction company specializing in building complicated, unusual projects, he quickly began construction on large, luxury estate homes in Park City, Draper, Holladay, Sandy and the surrounding areas.

Subsequently, since 1996, John Scott Underwood has broadened his specialization from building luxury estate homes to so much more. STARWOOD GROUPE now offers the design and construction of all kinds of residential and commercial buildings, from classic and modern homes to the most sophisticated office spaces. They also offer entire home remodeling, loft designs, shop designs and even unique pool installations and mountain-side homes. They don’t let complex designs or tricky locations get in their way.

John Scott Underwood, together with his award-winning design and construction team, offer to build their clients unique and high quality spaces using the latest building methods and technologies available. They also strive to use the most sustainable materials and resources, which allow them to design eco-friendly buildings for clients who want to ‘go green’ and even self-sustaining mountain-side homes for ‘off-the-grid’ adventurer types.

STARWOOD GROUPE has designed some of the most beautiful, not to mention expensive, residential and commercial buildings in Utah. They have a 5-star review and are currently rated as the number one construction company not only in Utah, but also in Wyoming, California and Arizona. Their years of experience with both private and corporate clients has afforded them an advantage of consumer confidence and loyalty that not many other construction companies in the area are able to rely on.

A long-time satisfied client, James Clarke, commented: "We have known and worked with John on a variety of home projects for over 15 years. We know him to be impeccable with his work and devoted to his craft. He delivers an exceptional finished product and doesn't stop until we are not just satisfied – but elated! We give STARWOOD GROUPE our highest recommendation and look forward to future opportunities to work together with John and his team.”

John Scott Underwood has also been involved in very prestigious side-projects over the years, working as a private builder for the most exclusive clientele in Utah. Cultivating these long-term relationships over the years has led to even more construction projects by referral with a number of high-profile clients. This is what sets STARWOOD GROUPE apart from other construction companies and builders operating in the area. Their commitment to customer satisfaction, from initial communication to on-site guidance, is matched by their commitment to meeting their clients’ every design and construction needs.

John Scott Underwood lets his work speak for itself. Over the course of his career, he has been involved in some extraordinary constructions, consisting not only of luxury estate and commercial spaces but also man-made rivers and lakes, statues, bridges, giant water features, airplane runways and helicopter pads. He won the Exceptional Home Builder Award in the Salt Lake Parade of Homes, has been featured in multiple notable publications including Utah Style and Design Magazine, was on the cover of Salt Lake City Magazine, and has won numerous other awards for a number of residential and office buildings he and his design team have built over the years.

STARWOOD GROUPE specializes in the design and construction of luxury, custom estate homes and commercial buildings. STARWOOD GROUPE is a 5-star reviewed construction company and also rated as the number one construction company in Utah, Wyoming, California and Arizona. As the founder of STARWOOD GROUPE, John Scott Underwood has become a leading figure of Utah’s construction industry. Since his studies at the University of Utah in Mechanical Engineering, he is now one of the most sought-out estate home builders in the region.
