  • PERFORMANCE

    Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Investment performance, current to the most recent month-end, may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. It can be obtained by calling (800) 531-5142. Performance data shown with load reflects the Class A shares maximum sales charge of 5.00% and the Class C shares maximum deferred sales charge of 1.00%. Performance data shown as no load does not reflect the current maximum sales charges. Had the sales charge been included, the fund's returns would be lower. All results are historical and assume the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.

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.

Pacific Heights Asset Management, LLC (“Pacific Heights”) is the investment adviser to Permanent Portfolio Family of Funds (“Fund”). The Fund is distributed by Quasar Distributors, LLC (“Quasar”), a member of FINRA.  Quasar is not affiliated with Pacific Heights.
