Minimum Investments

For Class A shares, the initial minimum investment amount for regular accounts is $5,000, and for tax-deferred accounts is $2,000. The minimum subsequent investment is $100. An account fee of $15 annually will be charged for all non-retirement accounts with a balance below $2,500. The account fee will not be charged if the balance falls below $2,500 due solely to depreciation of the investment. The fee will be waived if you have multiple accounts and your total investment amount is $50,000 or more.

The minimum can also be waived by the Adviser for shareholders investing through a wrap program or similar arrangement.

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risk factors, charges, and expenses of the Dunham Funds carefully before investing. This and other important information is contained in the Dunham Funds’ summary prospectus and/or prospectus, which may be obtained by contacting your financial advisor, or by calling toll free (800) 442‐4358. Please read prospectus materials carefully before investing or sending money. Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal.

Dunham Funds are distributed by Dunham & Associates Investment Counsel, Inc., a Registered Investment Adviser and Broker/Dealer. Member FINRA / SIPC.

Returns for Class A Shares include the maximum sales charge (5.75% for equity funds and 4.50% for fixed income funds). Net Asset Value (NAV) returns exclude these charges, which would have reduced returns.

Average annual total return is the annual compound return for the indicated period. It reflects the change in share price and the reinvestment of all dividends and capital gains. Returns for periods of less than one year are cumulative total returns.

Large Cap Stock Risk - Because the investment focus of the Fund is on large cap stocks, the value of the Fund may be more volatile than the market as a whole and can perform differently from the value of the market as a whole. The value of securities of large cap issuers may change as large cap investing style goes in and out of favor depending on a variety of political, regulatory, market, or economic developments.

Management Risk - Each Fund is subject to management risk because it is an actively managed investment portfolio. The Sub-Adviser’s judgments about the attractiveness and potential appreciation of a security, whether selected under a “value”, “growth” or other investment style, may prove to be inaccurate and may not produce the desired results. The Adviser and Sub-Adviser will apply its investment techniques and risk analyses in making investment decisions for the Funds, but there is no guarantee that its decisions will produce the intended result. The successful use of hedging and risk management techniques may be adversely affected by imperfect correlation between movements in the price of the hedging vehicles and the securities being hedged.

Securities Lending Risk - Portfolio securities may be loaned to brokers, dealers and financial institutions to realize additional income under guidelines adopted by the Board of Trustees. A risk of lending portfolio securities, as with other extensions of credit, is the possible loss of rights in the collateral should the borrower fail financially. The Fund might not be able to recover the securities or their value. In determining whether to lend securities, the Adviser or its agent, will consider all relevant facts and circumstances, including the creditworthiness of the borrower.

Stock Market Risk - Stock markets can be volatile. In other words, the prices of stocks can fall rapidly in response to developments affecting a specific company or industry, or to changing economic, political or market conditions. The Fund’s investments may decline in value if the stock markets perform poorly. There is also a risk that the Fund’s investments will underperform either the securities markets generally or particular segments of the securities markets.
