Fund Literature

Pacific Funds Small-Cap offers shareholders:

A Time-Tested Process
For more than 25 years, the investment team has managed institutional assets using a process rooted in fundamental analysis and designed to identify potential catalysts for a stock’s positive relative performance.
Focused on Expectational Upside
The Fund seeks to outperform its benchmark by investing in a mix of stocks the team believes is attractively valued and should provide a controlled level of risk in down markets.
Anchored in Style Purity
Stocks whose market capitalization falls within the range of the Russell 2000 Index, and are expected to achieve above-average returns relative to the Fund’s benchmark over a market cycle, will be selected for the Fund.

Fund Overview

Investment Goal: The Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation.

Investment Strategy: The Fund invests in securities that the portfolio management team believes are attractively valued with the potential to exceed investor expectations. Under normal circumstances, this Fund invests at least 80% of its assets in common stocks and other equity securities of small capitalization U.S. companies. The Fund defines small capitalization companies as companies whose market capitalizations fall within the range of the Russell 2000 Index at the time of purchase. The market capitalization of the companies in the Fund's portfolio and the Russell 2000 Index changes over time; the Fund will not automatically sell or cease to purchase stock of a company it already owns just because the company's market capitalization changes.

Returns reflect reinvestment of dividends and distributions. Returns shown at net asset value (NAV) have all distributions reinvested. If a sales charge had been deducted, the results would have been lower. Returns shown at maximum offering price (MOP) for Class A shares reflect payment of the 4.25% maximum sales charge. Class A, C, and Advisor Class shares incepted on 1/11/16. The Fund acquired the assets of the Rothschild U.S. Small-Cap Core Fund (the Predecessor Fund) in a reorganization transaction on 1/11/16. The Fund’s objectives (goals), policies, guidelines, and restrictions are substantially the same as those of the Predecessor Fund. The performance figures shown for Class A, Class C, and Advisor Class shares of the Fund reflect the historical performance of the then-existing Institutional Class shares of the Predecessor Fund for periods prior to 1/11/16. The performance figures for periods prior to 1/11/16 have not been adjusted to reflect fees and expenses of Class A, Class C, and Advisor Class shares of the Fund, respectively. If these returns had been adjusted, then performance for the share classes could vary from the returns shown based on differences in their fee and expense structures. The Institutional Class shares of the Predecessor Fund commenced operations on 12/31/14.

1Class A shares reflect the deduction of an up-front 4.25% sales load. Class C shares reflect the deduction of a 1.00% contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC). When a sales charge is illustrated, it is applied at the beginning of the period. Advisor Class shares are sold at net asset value (NAV) without an initial sales charge and do not include a CDSC. Performance reflects any applicable fee waivers and expense reimbursements. 2Measures the performance of the small-cap segment of the U.S. equity universe.

About Principal Risks

All investing involves risk, including the possible loss of the principal amount invested. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its investment goal. Equity securities tend to go up or down in value, sometimes rapidly and unpredictably. Small-capitalization companies may be more susceptible to liquidity risk and price volatility risk and more vulnerable to economic, market and industry changes than larger, more established companies.
