The intermediate-term bond portion of the Multi-Asset Income Fund’s portfolio may represent 0% to 100% of the Fund’s portfolio with an average duration of between two and eight years. The Eventide Multi-Asset Income Fund may invest in other funds. If other funds are utilized, such underlying funds are subject to investment advisory and other expenses, which will be indirectly paid by the Fund. As a result, your cost of investing in the Fund will be higher than the cost of investing directly in underlying funds and may be higher than other mutual funds that do not invest in underlying funds. The Fund may invest, directly or indirectly, in “junk bonds.” Such securities are speculative investments that carry greater risks than higher quality debt securities. There are unique risks associated with REITs, preferred stocks, convertible bonds, and BDCs that are covered in the Fund’s prospectus and SAI.
