Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. There is no guarantee that the Guardian Capital Funds will meet its investment objective. By concentrating its investments in an industry or sector, the Fund may face more risks than if it were diversified broadly over numerous industries or sectors. To the extent that the Fund invests in growth-oriented securities, the Adviser’s perception of the underlying companies’ growth potentials may be wrong, or the securities purchased may not perform as expected. The universe of acceptable investments for the Fund may be limited as compared to other funds due to the Fund’s Environmental, Social, Governance investment screening. Because the Fund does not invest in companies that do not meet its ESG criteria, and the Fund may sell portfolio companies that subsequently violate its screens, the Fund may be riskier than other mutual funds that invest in a broader array of securities.
