Investors may note that the Pax Ellevate Global Women's Index Fund had a
significant drop in share price (NAV) on Monday, 12/22/2014. The drop in NAV

The Pax Ellevate Global Women's Index Fund paid $2.21 in capital gains per share plus a small income dividend (between $0.08 and $0.10 per share, depending on the share class).

Shareholders of the fund will either receive cash or additional shares (depending on whether or not they chose to reinvest distributions in their accounts). Therefore, there is no loss to shareholders or reduction in the value of their investment in the fund as a result of the capital gains and dividend distribution.
