Mutual fund investing involves risk; loss of principal is possible.

Permanent Portfolio invests in foreign securities, which will involve greater volatility, political, economic and currency risks, and differences in accounting methods. The fund will be affected by changes in the prices of gold, silver, Swiss franc assets and U.S. and foreign aggressive growth, real estate and natural resource stocks. The fund is non-diversified and thus may be able to invest more of its assets in fewer issuers and types of investments than a diversified fund. Investing a higher percentage of its assets in any one or a few issuers could increase the fund’s risk of loss and its share price volatility. The fund may invest in smaller companies, which involve additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility than larger companies.

Aggressive Growth Portfolio's stocks may appreciate in value more rapidly than the stock market, but they are also subject to greater risk, especially during periods when the prices of U.S. stock market investments, in general, are declining. The Portfolio invests in smaller companies, which will involve additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility. The Portfolio also invests in foreign securities, which will involve greater volatility, political, economic and currency risks, and differences in accounting methods.

Short-Term Treasury Portfolio's investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. The risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or any other government agency, does not guarantee an investment in the Short-Term Treasury Portfolio. Therefore, you may lose money by investing in the Portfolio.

Versatile Bond Portfolio's investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. The risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investments in below investment grade bonds (also referred to as “high yield” or “junk” bonds) present a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. Investments in foreign securities involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks, and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater in emerging markets. In addition, certain investments may be illiquid and may be difficult to purchase, sell, or value.

Diversification does not assure a profit, nor does it protect against a loss in a declining market. Earnings growth is not a measure of the Fund's future performance.

Opinions expressed and views on the securities mentioned are those of Michael J. Cuggino as of the dates provided. They are subject to change at any time, are not guaranteed, and should not be considered investment advice. Stocks are generally perceived to have more financial risk than bonds in that bond holders have a claim on firm operations or assets that is senior to that of equity holders. In addition, stock prices are generally more volatile than bond prices. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Depending on the entity issuing the bond, it may or may or may not afford additional protections to the investor, such as a guarantee of return of principal by a government or bond insurance company. There is typically no guarantee of any kind associated with the purchase of an individual stock. Bonds are often owned by individuals interested in current income while stocks are generally owned by individuals seeking price appreciation with income a secondary concern.

Fund holdings can be reviewed by clicking on the following fact sheets — Permanent Portfolio, Short-Term Treasury Portfolio, Versatile Bond Portfolio, and Aggressive Growth Portfolio.
