Growth of $10,000

This chart illustrates the performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made in the Fund on the inception date and assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. This chart does not imply future performance.

Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results. The 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. Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted.

Performance for periods prior to 10/26/12 is that of the FBR Balanced Fund.

* The performance shown for periods prior to 9/24/01 represents the performance of the Institutional Class shares of the Fund and includes expenses that are not applicable to and are lower than those of Investor Class shares.

The Blended Balanced Index consists of 60% common stocks represented by the S&P 500 Index and 40% bonds represented by the Bloomberg Barclays Capital Intermediate U.S. Government/Credit Index.

30-Day SEC Yield is a standardized yield computed by dividing the net investment income per share earned during the past 30-day period by the share price at the end of the period, expressed as an annual percentage rate. The 30-Day SEC Yield should be regarded as an estimate of the Fund’s rate of recent investment income, and it may not equal the Fund’s actual distribution rate. Distribution Rate reflects the investment income per share during the last 12 months divided by the share price at the end of the period, expressed as an annual percentage rate. It is calculated by annualizing the Fund’s most recent distribution. The annualized dividend yield may not reflect the actual yield an investor would receive. Past yields are no guarantee of future yields.
