Past performance does not guarantee future results.
Annually, Lipper, a Thompson Reuters company and an independent monitor of mutual funds, determines the fund classification winner over 3, 5 and 10 years based on the highest Lipper Leader for Consistent Return value within each eligible classification. Consistent Return reflects the funds historic returns, adjusted for volatility, relative to peers and relies on monthly data. As of 12/31/08, The Arbitrage Fund's Lipper numeric rankings for the 1-, 3-, 5-, and 10-year periods were N/A, 7 of 35, 1 of 23, and N/A, respectively; as of 12/31/11, the 1-, 3-, 5-, and 10-year periods were N/A, 11 of 50, 1 of 34, and N/A, respectively; as of 12/31/12, the 1-, 3-, 5-, and 10-year periods were N/A, 22 of 50, 1 of 32, and N/A, respectively. Lipper does not guarantee the accuracy of this information. Lipper rankings are not intended to predict future results.
The Fund uses investment techniques with risks that are different from the risks ordinarily associated with equity investments. Such techniques and strategies include merger arbitrage risks, high portfolio turnover risks, options risks, borrowing risks, short sale risks, non-diversification risks, and foreign investment risks, which may increase volatility and may increase costs and lower performance.
