Multi-Disciplinary Income Fund
KMDNX No Load Class
- Multi-strategy investment approach that opportunistically invests in income-oriented securities and utilizes an equity option strategy which seeks to generate income and capital gains in excess of traditional fixed income indexes while assuming less interest rate risk or duration risk.
- Fixed income investments generally comprise limited duration securities, including investment grade and high yield bonds, and emphasize the avoidance of permanent capital losses.
- A selective equity option strategy supplements fixed income investments through the monetization of equity market volatility. The investment adviser aims to moderate incremental risks by selecting option strike prices that are below their underlying stock prices and by limiting option notional exposures.

The Growth of $10,000 chart illustrates the performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made in No Load Class shares commencement of operations (2/11/08). It assumes reinvestment of capital gains and dividends. This chart is not intended to imply any future performance.
Holdings are expressed as a percentage of total net investments and may vary over time. Equity holdings are subject to change, and may not be indicative of actual market position due to the use of call and put options.
The Top 10 Sectors displayed represent a percentage of the net assets and excludes cash equivalents and other assets in excess of liabilities. For purposes of calculating the top percentage holdings of the fund, the top 10 equity and fixed income holdings are valued at their applicable market value. Fixed Income Statistics include details on instruments held directly by the Fund and do not include securities which may be held within a portfolio owned by the Fund.
Assets represent the total net assets for the specified portfolio, which includes all fund classes.
The Gross expense ratios listed are as of 12/31/2019 as reported in the 4/29/2020 prospectus. The Fund’s adviser voluntarily agreed to waive management fees and reimburse fund expenses so that net annual fund operating expenses do not exceed certain levels, not including acquired fund fees and expenses (AFFE), through May 1, 2021 and may be discontinued at any time by the Fund’s adviser after May 1, 2021.
*Number of Positions are calculated such that all securities issued by one issuer are counted as one position.
Beta: A statistic that measures the volatility of the fund, as compared to the overall market. The market’s beta is set at 1.00; therefore a beta higher than 1.00 is considered to be more volatile than the market, while a beta lower than 1.00 is considered to be less volatile. It is important to note that a low beta for a fund does not necessarily imply that the fund has a low level of volatility, a low beta signifies only that the fund’s market-related risk is low. The Beta has been calculated for the past five years.
Standard Deviation: A statistical measure of portfolio risk used to measure variability of total return around an average, over a specified period of time. The greater the standard deviation over the period, the wider the variability or range of returns and hence, the greater the fund’s volatility. The standard deviation has been calculated for the past 5 years.
Up Market Capture Ratio: A statistical measure of an investment manager’s overall performance in up-markets. The up-market capture ratio is used to evaluate how well an investment manager performed relative to an index during periods when that index has risen. The up-market capture ratio has been calculated for the past five years.
Down Market Capture Ratio: A statistical measure of an investment manager’s overall performance in down-markets. The down-market capture ratio is used to evaluate how well or poorly an investment manager performed relative to an index during periods when that index has dropped. The down-market capture ratio has been calculated for the past five years.
Sharpe Ratio: A statistical measure that uses standard deviation and excess return to determine reward per unit of risk. A higher Sharpe ratio implies a better historical risk-adjusted performance. The Sharpe ratio has been calculated for the past five years using the 3-month treasury bill for the risk-free rate of return.
Turnover Ratio: A measure of how frequently assets within a fund are bought and sold by the managers represented over a one year period.
Allocation Box: The allocation box has been created by Kinetics. The horizontal axis of the box is divided into three investment style classifications: Value, Core (a blend of Value and Growth) and Growth. The vertical axis is divided into three categories based on individual company size: large, mid and small. Generally, the 400 largest companies in the U.S. are considered Large, the next 1000 largest are Mid and the remainder are Small. Classifications made by Kinetics are for representative purposes only and may change at any time without notice.
Delta: A statistical measure relating the changes in an option’s price to price changes of the option’s underlying security.
Average Put Option % Moneyness: % moneyness refers to a put option’s strike price relative to the price of its underlying security in percentage terms. The average put option % moneyness is the average % moneyness for the option exposures weighted by each option’s % of notional exposure. In-the-money (ITM) refers to a put option with a strike price that is above the underlying security’s price. At-the-money (ATM) refers to a put option with a strike prices that is equal to the underlying security’s price. Out-the-money (OTM) refers to a put option with a strike price that is below the underlying security’s price. For example, a put option that is 5% OTM has a strike price that is 5% below the underlying security’s price and a put option that is 5% ITM has a strike price that is 5% higher than the underlying security’s price.
Annual Distribution Yield: Represents a fund’s distribution made to shareholders of the No Load Class over the past 12 months divided by the No Load Class NAV of the last business day of the period. The distributions consist of income and realized capital gains, and may include return of capital if shareholders of record at the time of the distribution were provided with such notice. The Fund’s investment advisor has voluntarily agreed to waive management fees and reimburse Fund expenses. The Annual Distribution Yield would have been lower if not for the Fund’s voluntary waivers. The Annual Distribution Yield does not reflect a sales load/charge, which, if applied would lower the yields shown.
