How do I invest in the mutual funds?
You can make purchases directly from the Funds by mail or bank wire upon completion of the appropriate account application. The Funds have also authorized one or more brokers to receive purchase and redemption orders on their behalf and such brokers are authorized to designate other financial intermediaries to receive orders on behalf of the Funds. Such orders will be deemed to have been received by the Funds when an authorized broker or broker-authorized designee receives the order, subject to the order being in good form. The orders will be priced at the Fund’s net asset value next computed after the orders are received by the authorized broker or broker-authorized designee. Investors may also be charged a fee by a broker or agent if shares are purchased through a broker or agent. The Funds reserve the right to (i) refuse any request to purchase shares of the Funds for any reason, and (ii) suspend their offering of shares at any time.
Regular Mail Orders. Payment for shares must be made by check from a U.S. financial institution and payable in U.S. dollars. Cash, money orders, and traveler’s checks will not be accepted by the Funds. If checks are returned due to insufficient funds or other reasons, your purchase will be canceled. You will also be responsible for any losses or expenses incurred by the particular Fund(s), Administrator, and Transfer Agent. The particular Fund(s) will charge a $35 fee and may redeem shares of that fund already owned by the purchaser or shares of another identically registered account in another series of the Trust to recover any such loss. For regular mail orders, please complete a Fund Shares Application and mail it, along with your check made payable to the applicable fund, to:
Brown Capital Management Mutual Funds
[Name of Fund and Share Class]
c/o ALPS Fund Services, Inc.
P.O. Box 1446 Denver, Colorado 80201
Please remember to add a reference to the applicable Fund and share class on your check to ensure proper credit to your account. The application must contain your Social Security Number (“SSN”) or Taxpayer Identification Number (“TIN”). If you have applied for a SSN or TIN at the time of completing your account application but you have not received your number, please indicate this on the application and include a copy of the form applying for the SSN or TIN. Taxes are not withheld from distributions to U.S. 30 investors if certain Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) requirements regarding the SSN or TIN are met and we have not been notified by the IRS that the particular U.S. investor is subject to back-up withholding.
By sending your check to the Funds, please be aware that you are authorizing the Funds to make a one-time electronic debit from your account at the financial institution indicated on your check. Your bank account will be debited as early as the same day the Funds receive your payment in the amount of your check. Your original check will be destroyed once processed, and you will not receive your cancelled check back. If the Funds cannot post the transaction electronically, you authorize the Funds to present an image copy of your check for payment.
