Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Small and medium capitalization companies tend to have limited liquidity and greater price volatility than large capitalization companies. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for long-term debt securities. The Bridges Fund invests in foreign securities, which involves greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods.

Fund holdings are subject to change and are not a recommendation to buy or sell any securities.

While the fund is no-load, management fees and other expenses still apply. Please refer to the prospectus for further details.

Free Cash Flow: A measure of the cash produced by the firm in a given period on behalf of equity holders. The true measure of the value of a firm’s equity is considered to be the present value of all free cash flows.
