Diversified Arbitrage Fund: This Fund has the risk that the anticipated arbitrage opportunities do not play out as planned, resulting in potentially reduced returns or losses to the Fund as it unwinds its trades. This fund enters into a short sale by selling a security it has borrowed. If the market price of a security increases after the Fund borrows the security, the Fund will suffer a potentially unlimited loss when it replaces the borrowed security at the higher price. Short sales also involve transaction and other costs that will reduce potential Fund gains and increase potential Fund losses. The Fund uses derivatives to hedge certain economic exposures. The use of derivatives exposes the Fund to additional risks including increased volatility, lack of liquidity, and possible losses greater than the Fund's initial investment as well as increased transaction
