Fund Overview

The Motley Fool Emerging Markets Fund seeks exceptional foreign companies at value prices. We look for high-quality companies with excellent management teams that boast strong financial positions and operate in industries that our management team truly understands. We will invest at least 90 percent of the Fund's net assets in securities issued by foreign companies. We define foreign companies as companies located or organized outside the United States or whose primary business is carried on outside the United States. Our process is identical to the one we rely on for the Motley Fool Global Opportunities Fund and Motley Fool Small-Mid Cap Growth Fund. We perform rigorous, fundamental analysis and dissect each company's strategy, competitive position, operations, and performance. Additionally, we review all pertinent public documents and official communications about the company. Although we will invest with an intention to hold for the long term, we will also insist on keeping a solid margin of safety on all Fund holdings. As a result, we will sell any holding that we believe has exceeded its intrinsic value.

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. As of 09/30/2018, Motley Fool Emerging Markets Fund was rated among 508 Diversified Emerging Mkts funds in the last five years and received a 4-star rating. As of 09/30/2018, Motley Fool Emerging Markets Fund was rated among 708 Diversified Emerging Mkts funds in the last three years and received a 3-star rating.

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 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. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10- year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
